In the "Seventh Circle" by Robert Langdon, Rob shares his experiences working as a security contractor in Afghanistan and the circumstances that got him arrested for murder and sentenced to death.  The bulk of the book is focused on his seven years in prison and the unique ecosystem of Afghanistan's legal and incarceration system.  Ultimately, it is also a book about survival and mindset and dealing with the turmoil of multiple death sentences and being the last Westerner in the prison system.  (Amazon Link)
