Publishers Description The exciting story of wrongful arrest and imprisonment for importing Bibles to an Islamic culture. 'After inserting the key to unlock the door, the jailer looked in, and then shoved all the men inside: Jaques, Matti, Veikko and me. He held back Francoise, grabbing her firmly by the arm. She shrieked and Jacques protested, letting out a shout. As he did so, the massive iron door swung shut with a loud metallic squeak of the hinges, followed by an almighty clank that seemed to make the whole building reverberate for several seconds. It was a sound that will haunt me for the rest of my life; a sound I will never forget.' This is the thrilling story of how Graham Hutt and his friends were arrested and imprisoned in Morocco. All because one of them possessed a small black bag containing something the police and a judge were to deem 'illegal in Morocco' - Bibles. The penalties totaled nearly half a million dollars, plus imprisonment; and all because of this 'minor indiscretion'. Read of the author's long fight to prove their innocence, regain his yacht and the freedom to visit the country he loves: Morocco.This is a fast-paced chronicle of the friends' adventures, with unique insights into the Arab culture.

Captivating story that does not let go Dec 2, 2004
I could not put this book down once I started reading it. Beware, the same may happen to you. This story needs to be told. In today's world, we need to learn from the insights of ancient cultures trying to fit into the new millennium. Graham gracefully allows us to experience the roller coaster ride of emotions he went through. Even though he suffers greatly, he never uses this opportunity to show anything but love and understanding toward the people of Morocco, indeed he encourages people toward better understanding of this culture. This is a great story from a man who has sailed extensively in this region and even revised the North Africa guide for sailors. Through Graham's eyes we learn to love and respect the people of North Africa and hopefully to appreciate them in a new way.
