What would you do if you found yourself in the presence of murderous evil? Would you sell out to survive, or would you resist and try to hang onto your values? For how long? Maybe you reject the whole concept of evil. In this hour of To the Best of Our Knowledge we'll meet some people who aren't so sure anymore, including Ishmael Beah. He became a killing machine for the Army in Sierra Leone. They gave him an AK47 and a steady diet of drugs and war movies, when he was only 12 years old.
Elizabeth George, author of the Inspector Lynley mysteries, talks about her new novel that tells the life story of the mixed race boy who's arrested for the fatal mugging of the Inspector's wife, which occurred in the previous novel in the series.
