Richard Loseby's first book, Blue is the Colour of Heaven, an astonishing account of his journey by foot through Iran, Iraq and Afghanistan, was a gripping of his trip and the war torn countries he visited. Unbelievably, in November 2002 Richard decided to take a break from the constraints of mortgage and family and return to Iran and Afghanistan in search of his friends Karim and Nebi - Nebi's last words to him were 'come back soon Massoud' - a journey few would even contemplate. He travelled light, without the trappings of modern travel, except for his old Pentax camera, a notepad and a good pair of boots. What had happened to his friends in the intervening years? They were fighting a war with a common enemy - were they still alive? Part travelogue, part personal quest, and part mystery, Richard once again reveals his brilliance as a writer, storyteller and photographer.
