Abstract:

"Confessions of an innocent man is the tense and brutal story of Sampson's solitary confinement in a Saudi Arabian prison and his survival of an ordeal that lasted for more than two years, from which he expected only death would bring release. It it the story of his determined dirty war against his captors and of the apparent indifference of his embassy. A chronicle of horrific isolation, it recounts his internment, physical torture, and pschological abuse. It describes how and ask why events put him beyond the protection he expected to have as a citizen of Western democracy who was in Saudi Arabia at the invitation of the government."--The publisher.
