Review of Enemies Within: Papua New Guinea, Australia, and the Sandline crisis: The Inside Story, by Mary-Louise O'Callaghan. Sydney: Doubleday.

This book gives an extremely detailed account of those unprecedented events. According to this book, the worst thing about the detention of the Sandline commander, Lieutenant Colonel Tim Spicer, by the PNG military, was that he missed the Hong Kong Rugby Sevens. Bad Show! This book reads like a thriller.
