Iran was NOT on the itinerary when three American hikers set off in search of adventure in Asia five years ago. 

But Iran became a very long and harrowing stopover for the hikers, who were accused of espionage and imprisoned. 

Sarah Shourd, Shane Bauer and Joshua Fattal now tell the story of their capture and eventual release... with many scary details in between... in their book A Sliver of Light: Three Americans Imprisoned in Iran. 

Joshua Fattal joins us.
