Web Desk: Raymond Davis — United States citizen and ex-Central Intelligence Agency employee who sparked a diplomatic storm in Pakistan in 2011 after he shot dead two men in broad day light in Lahore — has written a book about his experience and how he got out of jail in Pakistan.
In his memoir, titled The Contractor: How I Landed in a Pakistani Prison and Ignited a Diplomatic Crisis, Davis talks in detail about his experience in Pakistan.
According to its description, the book is, “an up-close and personal look at the 2011 incident in Lahore, Pakistan, that led to his [Davis’s] imprisonment and the events that took place as diplomats on both sides of the bargaining table scrambled to get him out”.
In his book, Davis has named a number of high profile Pakistani officials and politicians and has claimed that they were all critical in ensuring he gets out safely.
