A few weeks before he was murdered Editor of The Sunday Leader Lasantha Wickrematunge wrote a chillingly prophetic editorial in which he addressed his would-be killers. In the editorial titled And Then They Came for Me published in The Sunday Leader three days after he was killed, he wrote, " hope my assassination will not be seen as a defeat of freedom but an inspiration to those who survive to step up their efforts. Indeed I hope it will galvanise forces that will usher in era of human liberty in our beloved motherland."

Only one among dozens of journalists who have disappeared, been killed, abducted, red or harassed in Sri Lanka, Wickrematunge stands out not only as one of Sri an journalism's icons but as a universally inspiring hero of our times. This book, written by his ex-wife and comrade in journalism for many years Raine Wickrematunge, captures the remarkable events in the life of this trail-blazing journalist who strove to lay bare the canker of corruption in those who are elected to and change for the better the society he lived in. It is the story of a man who lived, breathed and finally died in the pursuit of the truth.
