On 16 May 2018, after spending two stints in prison totalling eight years behind bars, Anwar Ibrahim was released and received a full pardon from the King from all charges of corruption and sodomy.

This book recounts both the first sodomy episode (1998-2004) and the Sodomy II trial (2008-2012) where Anwar was unexpectedly acquitted of the charges of sodomy against his 23-year-old aide. It also includes the events that led to the Malaysian Court of Appeal overturning the acquittal ruling in March 2014, convicting Anwar of the charge and sentencing him to five years' imprisonment to the guilty verdict that was finally delivered on 10 February 2015.

Mark Trowell also presents an exclusive interview with Anwar, and as well a discussion of the key factors that had political ramifications on Najib Razak, which led to the surprising alliance between Anwar and Dr Mahathir, and Anwars ultimate release from prison.
