As a prominent Iranian journalist and political activist, Houshang Asadi was used to being arrested. This time, however, was different. Little did he know, as he was pushed blindfolded into a car, that he would spend the next six years being brutally, mindlessly tortured by the very people he supported. Brother HamidA", Asadi's torturer, stopped at nothing to extract his 'confessions': Asadi was a spy for Russia, for Britain - for anyone. Hamid became an ambassador, Asadi a fugitive, haunted by nightmares and persisting pain. Suspended from the ceiling, his feet lashed till lame, he was grilled until he could no longer phrase a simple question himself. Through these letters, Asadi recounts how a previous fellow prisoner, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei, finally saved his life - and confronts his torturer one last time.
