Tells the Kafkaesque, true story of Alexander Lapshin, a Russian/ Israeli travel blogger who, unwittingly, found himself on Azerbaijan’s infamous Black List. He survived , arrest, imprisonment and a brutal assassination attempt, in a tale more chilling than any invented by John Le Carre’. Caught in a web of international intrigue and blackmail, Lapshin, incredibly wound up being accused of being an Armenian spy, and plotting to overthrow the government of Azerbaijan because of casual comments on his travel Blog and a visit to Nagorno-Karabakh, an area claimed by both Armenia and Azerbaijan.
Lapshin’s arrest in Belarus and subsequent extradition to stand trial in Azerbaijan, became an international human rights cause celebre that continues to reverberate until today. A terrifying tale of one man pitted against all the machinery of a Stalinist, totalitarian regime.
