Jere Van Dyk talks about his latest book, The Trade: My Journey into the Labyrinth of Political Kidnapping, which recounts the story of his excursion back to Afghanistan and Pakistan to investigate his own kidnapping by the Taliban in 2008. In pursuing his kidnappers and the stories of the intermediaries and money men, he uncovered not just the story of his own abduction but the operation of what he calls the trade: the business of kidnapping. Join us for this riveting account of his experience.
