M.R. Narayan Swamy has been a journalist for 25 years and currently works at the Indo-Asian News Service (IANS), a New Delhi, India based wire service. He began his career in 1978 with the UNI, one of India's two mainline news agencies, and later joined the AFP, the international French-English news agency where he worked for 13 years.
Swamy has been a veteran observer of Sri Lanka since the inception of the insurgency in 1983 and has closely followed Prabhakaran's career. His first book on Sri Lanka Tigers of Lanka was widely acclaimed by the South Asian media for its meticulous account of the separatist movement.
His latest book is a result of over one hundred interviews in India, Sri Lanka, Europe and North America over a period of two years. Swamy has done an exceptional job of piecing together events in Prabhakaran's life to create a remarkable narrative about a highly elusive man. Having reported on the war in Lanka for over a decade Swamy has built up a strong network of contacts both among the Tamil Tigers as well as the governments in India and Sri Lanka which he drew upon to tell the story.Review:
