Product Overview

Featured on Fox News and Univision and selected as Larry King?s Book of the Week, this is the harrowing true story of an American held in a Nicaraguan prison for a murder he didn?t commit.

In 2005, Eric Volz moved from California to Nicaragua. Volz met Doris Jim?nez, a beauty from a small beach town, and they began a passionate relationship. The relationship ended amicably less than a year later, and Volz moved to the capital city of Managua.

In 2006, Doris was found murdered in her seaside boutique. He rushed from Managua to be with her family, but before he knew it, he found himself accused of the crime. Decried in the press and vilified by his onetime friends, Volz suffered horrific prison conditions, deadly inmates, sadistic guards, an angry lynch mob, and the merciless treatment of government officials. He soon found himself a pawn in an international arms deal. It was only through his persistence, the tireless support of friends and family, and the assistance of a former intelligence operative that Eric was released, after more than a year in prison.

A story that made national and international headlines, this is the only book to tell Eric?s absorbing, moving account in his own words.
