A compelling read. The book gives an insight in the Saudi mindset and their methods of creating truth through torture.

Mr. Sampson's paints a shocking picture of Saudi Arabia's penal and legal system. Canadian diplomats are portrayed as weak and cowardly.

The physical and mental torture he endured is unfathomable. This book should be read by any Westerner considering travelling or working in this part of the world.

This book is a remarkable telling of a horrible story. I was amazed and appalled by Mr Sampson''s strength and by the treatment he received. This look at the dark side of Saudia Arabia''s government, justice system, prisons and society is very revealing. You cannot read this book without questioning your own ability to withstand torture, imprisonment and rape. A disturbing tale, but highly recommended.
