Title: THE GUILLOTINE CHOICE
Written by: Bashir Saoudi & Michael Mallone
Genre: Drama, Political
LOGLINE: The Guillotine Choice, a new novel, is the astonishing true account of one man's experience of a hell on earth that few of us could ever hope to survive: the infamous Devil's Island penal colony.
Packed with all the drama of The Shawshank Redemption and Papillon, The Guillotine Choice tells the story of an uncommon man -- Kaci Mohand Saoud -- whose dignity triumphed over despair in unimaginably horrific conditions. The novel was written by Michael J Malone in collaboration with Kaci's son, Bashir Saoudi, who lives in Cambridge, England.
Bashir says, "My father's life is an inspiration and serves as an education to all of our children. It has been a dream of mine for thirty years to have this story told, and my deepest thanks are due to novelist Michael Malone whose storytelling ability has helped to make this book everything I hoped for. I got to know my father better through the thirty years of research that went into this project. This book is a way to thank him and to say what I should have told him personally: Dad, I love you."
