Forget Midnight Express, This is the Real Thing!

When I read this book it was nearing the end of the cold war. I still feel it hits home today! True story about an American that gets suckered into a counterfeiting scheme and ends up being caught by the Soviet Secret Police. Having many similarities to Midnight Express, the American gets sent to a Soviet prison camp in one of the barren, frigid areas of the USSR. His story inside the prison is so compelling that one has to wonder why it hasn't been made into a film. I don't want to spoil the end but obviously he eventually gets out or the book couldn't have been written.
