“From three decades of negotiating with unsavory individuals, I have found that this work takes a diplomat into uncharted psychological and moral territory. Negotiating with Killers provides an exceptionally useful and comprehensive road map of the challenges and practical approaches to this task.”
— Ambassador Donald Steinberg, Vice-President, International Crisis Group
