Judith Tebbutt tells the moving true story of her kidnap ordeal and the murder of her husband, David, by Somali pirates. In September 2011, Judith and her husband set out on an adventurous holiday to Kenya. After a joyous week on safari in the Masai Mara, they flew on to a beach resort forty kilometres south of Somalia. And there, in the early hours of September 11th, tragedy struck them. Judith was torn away from David by a band of armed pirates, dragged over sea and land to a village in the arid heart of lawless Somalia, and there held hostage in a squalid room, a ransom on her head. Responsibility of securing her release now rested with her son Ollie.
