Editor's Note: Roxana Saberi seemed ideally suited to report on Iran.  She was raised in the United States but had an Iranian father.  She could speak Farsi, she held Iranian and American passports, and she reported on Iran for the BBC, NPR, Fox News and other media.  But then, right before she was about to leave Iran, on January 31st 2009, three security officials woke her up from sleep and said they needed to interrogate her.  That was a descent into a nightmare, as she disappeared into Iran's notorious Evin prison.  At first, no one, including her parents or her boyfriend, knew what had happened.  Now Roxana Saberi has written the story of those harrowing days, Between Two Worlds: My Life and Captivity in Iran.
