Prisoner of Tehran: One Woman's Story of Survival Inside a Torture Jail

by Marina Nemat
£8.99   paperback  John Murray (2008)

Prisoner of Tehran: One Woman Aged sixteen, Marina Nemat was arrested for reasons she didn't understand and taken to Evin, Tehran's notorious prison. Her world was about to change for ever.
Marina was interrogated, tortured and finally sentenced to death. At the last moment, her prison guard snatched her from the firing-squad bullets but demanded a shocking price in return: marriage to him and conversion to Islam.
She spent her time in jail as his secret bride, always hoping she would be able to go home and be free of her horrific memories of Evin.
Prisoner of Tehran is the astonishing account of one woman's remarkable courage in the face of terror and her quest for freedom.
