Yasmina Khadra takes us to the heart of the last day lived by Muhammar Gaddafi, "The Brother Guide". These are difficult, desperate hours. It is the last journey of a lonely man, of a corrupt soul, lost in the labyrinth of power. This is a modern tragedy, the tragedy of a man who, page after page, shows us his childhood traumas, his sensitivity, his humanity, his fragility, his fears and his anxieties and then suddenly surprise us with his perversions, his thirst for power, his irremediable desire for self-celebration. Precisely in the unshakable faith in himself and in the conviction of being the chosen, the first, protected by God, Gaddafi, until the last moments, felt untouchable and waited for a miracle. He thought he was the revolutionary, he thought no one would ever betray him. Not even his people.
