A man wrongly imprisoned in a foreign country for drug smuggling and the girlfriend who led the fight to free him tell this extraordinary account of prison horror and endurance, laced with romance and adventure. John Packwood and Jane Amestoy alternate chapters as they recount John's Spanish imprisonment and extradition to Morocco, as Jane's case eventually catches the attention of politicians, human rights campaigners, and celebrities such as George Clooney, Hugh Grant, Joseph Fiennes, Damien Hirst, and Annie Lennox. With the combined efforts of Jane's hard work and the snowballing power behind them, John was eventually freed after 13 uncertain months in an unforgiving foreign system.

Andrew Crofts is the bestselling ghostwriter and author of Just a Boy, The Kid, and The Little Prisoner, which were number-one bestsellers on The Sunday Times. His books have been translated into more than 15 languages.Review:
"Before I was told about John Packwood's story by my friend, his lawyer, John's name and ordeal meant nothing to me. I was moved to try and help, as were so many other people. He was an unlucky man in the wrong place at the wrong time—it could so easily have been any one of us. Let's hope that John's story inspires others to stick up for all those that face grave injustices around the world." —George Clooney, Academy award–winning actor
