“Mark and Cora Lijek displayed great courage and uncommon patience while living a secret existence in the protection of the Canadian embassy staff in Tehran after the capture of the American Embassy in November 1979. Mark’s account is the true story of the lives of the “Canadian Six” while in hiding and the potential dangers they faced if their whereabouts had been discovered by the Iranian militants. This very readable account is at least as suspenseful as any fictional drama would hope to be.”

-William J. Daugherty, PhD, Professor of Government Emeritus, Armstrong Atlantic State University, Savannah, GA, Author of In the Shadow of the Ayatollah: A CIA Hostage in Iran
