"A brave, meticulously researched story of missed opportunities, treachery and revenge, and the burden of history on a country that has rarely known peace." -- Scott Wilson, the Washington Post
"...an authoritative work of modern history which is also a nail-biting page turner ... Dudley writes with an appealing blend of passion and honesty, and his book is absolutely riveting." -- Jon Lee Anderson, the New Yorker
"Meticulously reported, Walking Ghosts...leaves the reader on the edge of his seat." -- Juan Forero, New York Times
"...essential reading for anyone who wants to fully understand the causes of Latin America's longest-running civil war. A brave and unflinching book." -- Joseph Contreras, Newsweek
"...an engrossing, sometimes hair-raising account of Colombia's bloody, overlapping conflicts." -- Roane Carey, The Nation
