I Was Saddam's Son book. Unique tale that Yahia Latif's one, forced to become the double of Saddam Hussein's son. As much as I consider myself relatively informed of what's going on in the world, I was surprised by the everyday horror of Iraqis' lives. The Devil's Double tells the story of Latif Yahia, an upper class Iraqi who just happened to bear a striking resemblance to Uday Hussein. They started off as classmates, school boy chums.

Latif Yahia (Arabic: لطيف يحيى‎, Laṭīf Yaḥīa; born 14 June 1964) is an Iraqi-born author and former combatant in the Iran–Iraq War. Two journalists have disputed this and other claims made by Yahia.

The hanging of Saddam Hussein ended the life of one of the most brutal tyrants in recent history, who oppressed Iraq for more than 30 years. Mr. Hussein paused from reading occasionally to light his cigar, while the room erupted in almost hysterical chanting demanding death to traitors. The entire dark spectacle, designed to leave no doubt as to who controlled Iraq, was filmed and copies distributed around the country.

Book Description: This is the next chapter in the extraordinary and chilling life story of author Latif Yahia. Having escaped the brutal Iraqi regime through Northern Iraq with the help of the CIA in 1992, Latif touched down in Austria. Having family in the pristine and picturesque city of Vienna, Latif is somewhat reassured that his life will be calmer now without Uday Saddam Hussein and his hedonisticaly violent lifestyle. Alongside Latif is Nusa, a hired girl, a plaything and ego boost for her Baghdadi clientele, although she has never been mentioned in Latif's past works the reasons for her concealment become apparent as the story unfolds. Unfortunately life was never to become the idyll that Latif desired, his knowledge or perceived knowledge of the inner Iraqi regime was to become his saviour and his tormentor. This, left him chained and unable to move forward, as much as he wished to forget, his handlers wanted to know more. Latif became almost a prized item in the world of International Intelligence with nearly all of the world's Intelligence agencies vying for his allegiance, his pleas for neutrality and normality unheard. Ultimately Latif was to pay the price for his uncooperative stance; ten and a half months were spent in a covert Austrian/CIA prison cell in solitary confinement, until by chance his freedom was assured by a visiting judge.

I purchase this after reading the Devil's Double. The story continues and speaks about his exile and being on the run. Not being able to have a country to represent him or believe his story. Not trusting any country including the US and Germany. The saga continues and now I understand he is currently in Ireland and still have no home country. I am curious to know how he is doing in 2013 and how he has made out so far. Inquiring minds would like to know.

excellent followup book and some details to the intelligence background

I loved the content and story of this book but I have to say that they need to re-edit the book. There were so many gaps and run on sentences it was rather difficlut to read at times. With that said I really did love reading about what happened to Latif Yahia and I am appalled at his treatment in trying to seek asylum from Uday Hussien and his family. I do truely hope that he will find some peace specially since The Hussien regime is gone and to hopefully be able to return back to Iraq. If you like reading biographies and autobiographies about people from the Middle Eastern countries in an effort to understand their culture and way of life then I recommend it. Hopefully they will also work out the editing kinks too.

The writer put us in a trance during the whole book, I think will be difficult to mach this book

I Was Saddam's Son told the true story of Latif Yahia's horrible fate when he was forced to serve as "body double" for Saddam Hussein's evil son Uday. In that book Yahia was yanked from the frontlines where he served as captain in the "useless Iran-Iraq War" and taken to Saddam's presidential palace. When he refused Uday's order to take his place in dangerous, life-threatening situations, he was put in solitary confinement where he suffered many indignities and mental torture. But it was threats to his family that finally made him agree. In addition to the danger Yahia faced each time he substituted for Uday, he had a "front-row seat" to Uday's depravity and heinous acts. "Son" told the detailed story ... from Yahia's forced service to his ultimate release, torture and escape to the Western World.

After I reviewed I Was Saddam's Son, I was eager to know what had happened to Yahia after 1992 when he emerged from behind the walls of the kingdom of terror. Yahia's true story has been played out in the world media, but most people appreciate hearing the details in his own words. Since so many asked me if I knew what happened to him and his family after his escape, I was pleased when Yahia contacted me, thanking me for the review and informing me that "Son" was published without his authorization and the end chapter where Bushra went back to Iraq with his children was a "lie," and the true story of that period can be read in his novel, "Devil's Double."

He offered me a copy of The Black Hole: The Real Story of the Man Who Was Forced to Become The Double Of Saddam Hussein's Sadistic Son, which I gratefully accepted because I was eager to learn more about his "post-Uday" life. FYI, I have yet to read "The Devil's Double." I think it will match what I learned in "Son," except for the last chapter that Yahia spoke of above. I still want to read it, because it will be interesting to read the "real truth" in his own words.

I just finished reading The Black Hole: The Real Story of the Man Who Was Forced to Become The Double Of Saddam Hussein's Sadistic Son and the experience was like watching a gripping movie--a real eye-opener! To say the least, this brave man--who had the misfortune to strongly resemble Uday--has not had it much easier in the West than he had in Iraq. ... In his own words: "I wrote these books to inform the world of the horrors that not only I but the greater part of the Iraqi population were suffering. Vowing to settle my account with the Baghdad regime, I bolstered myself for the battle ahead. I knew my adversaries well and was prepared for the fight, but nothing prepared me for the reaction I would receive from the Western Intelligence Services."

It's been well-documented that in the years following his flight from Iraq, Yahia has been hounded internationally by the CIA and by Iraqi Intelligence Services, as well. Shuffled from country to country, always seeking statesmanship and a place to call home, he has plunged to "suicidal lows" and "enjoyed the exhilarating heights that a good life can serve up."

Who is Nusa, the woman who escapes to Austria with him? Why is he reluctant to bring her along? Why are they forced to leave Austria? What other countries give them temporary shelter? What happens in each one to make them flee yet again? How many attempts are made on his life? Why is he imprisoned in Austria for over ten months without being charged with any crime? What happens to make Nusa leave, and what becomes of their young son? When, after five years he flies into Dublin, does he ever find true love and a family life?

Since this story ends on his arrival in Ireland, it would be a spoiler to answer that last question, but I'm going to risk a reprimand in telling you what he has relayed to me since then: Yes, after being in Ireland for some time, he married a lovely Irish woman; they have three children and he settled there, hoping that would be the end of his saga, but--again in his own words: "What happened to me in the famously welcoming Emerald Isle at times made my experience on mainland Europe look like a holiday. ... My darkest lowest days were yet to come."

Latif Yahia is planning a fourth book to cover that period, and tells me he's been there eleven years and is now moving his family to Germany. Like he says, "My life never seems to be that simple or predictable."

I recommend this book to everyone ... not only for those who want to keep abreast of behind-the-scenes activities of world powers. It's a powerful book with a serious message, yet it reads like an exciting, page-turner mystery. Truth is, indeed, stranger than fiction!

This is a very powerful book filled with incredible situations that may seem mind blowing to the average person. I personally felt shocked by many of the revelations about governments, law enforcement and official government business within the CIA, Middle East, and European countries who had dealings with Mr. Yahia. I can't wait to read the sequel to this book which details the life of Latif in Ireland. I'm sure Forty Shades of Conspiracy will be a fascinating read.

This book was a quick sequel to the action packed "Devil's Double". Mr. Yahia unfortunately had suffered more than any human should. My hope is that he gained some healing through his writing!
As an Investigatire journalist I am always interested in these true stories, I suppose I am sceptical of most. Having done some background work on the CIA, rendition flights and covert prisons, I am convinced that what this man has said in his book is true. It has long been the policy of the American administraion be it Bush's or other, to deny first and then admit the truth, it will therefore not be too long, a year or so until everything contained in The Black Hole will be confirmed. I myself made a few enquiries to the Austrian government and the CIA with regards to this book, not surprisingly they made No Comment which in itself is an indication that they are aware of his existence. As for the author's motives, well yes it is a great read and maybe he will sell a ton of books, but he seems to be donating his profits to a children's hospital so maybe money isn't the goal, maybe just to be heard is.
