On January 27, 2011, on the streets of Lahore, Pakistan, US Government Security contractor Raymond Davis found himself staring down the barrel of a gun. Defending himself, he shot and killed two men who were--depending upon who you ask--illiterate robbers or Pakistani intelligence agents. The violent confrontation quickly escalated into a diplomatic crisis, making front-page headlines all over the world and threatening to destroy American relationships with one of the world's most volatile nations. For 49 days, Davis was in Pakistani custody--interrogated, threatened, fearing for his future--as rumors flew and the State Department worked tirelessly to get him back. In this page-turning thriller, Davis reveals for the very first time what happened behind the scenes during his time in the Pakistani legal system. Davis's riveting first-person narrative is interspersed with never-before-revealed details of the secret political maneuvering and unlikely chain of events that led to his release.
