Personally signed by Jim Lehrer

Easton Press, Norwalk CT. Jim Lehrer "The Special Prisoner" Signed First Edition. Full genuine leather. Personally signed by Jim Lehrer directly onto the special limitation page. Limited to only 1,425 signed and numbered copies. Includes COA from the publisher.

John Quincy Watson was a young bomber pilot flying the new B-29 Superfortress in a mission over Japan when he was shot down and taken prisoner. Designated a "special prisoner," as were all Allied airmen, he, along with his comrades, suffered and almost indescribably brutal POW experience under a vicious camp commandant that Watson, with his friends, dubs the "the Hyena." When a chance encounter years after the war brings Watson, now Bishop Watson, into contact with a man he believes to be the Hyena, the Bishop must struggle with an anger and a desire for vengeance he thought he had long put aside. The Special Prisoner is a taut and dramatic novel.


"Gripping...a harrowing novel of redemption and revenge."
-- Library Journal

"Riveting...I couldn't put this book down! The Special Prisoner delves into the full complexity of human evil and revenge."
-- Iris Chang, author of The Rape of Nanking

"[A] tribute to the men who endured and prevailed over the worst existence imaginable."
-- Stephen E. Ambrose
