A harrowing account of Afghanistan's notorious Pul-e-Charkhi prison, written by its longest-serving Western inmate.
Former soldier Rob Langdon was working as a security contractor in Afghanistan when he was found guilty of murder and sentenced to death in a case that would have been ruled a clear miscarriage of justice in the British legal system. His sentence was commuted to 20 years in jail, and he served his time in Kabul's most notorious prison, Pul-e-Charkhi, described as the world's worst place to be a Westerner.
Rob was there for seven years, the longest sentence served by a Westerner since the fall of the Taliban, and every one of those 2,500 days was an act of extraordinary survival in a jail filled with Afghanistan's most dangerous extremists and murderers. In 2016, Robert was pardoned and returned to Australia. In this highly anticipated book, he talks about his experiences for the first time.
