In 1977, 20-year-old Colleen Stan left home to hitchhike from Oregon to California. Seven years later she emerged from hell, the victim of a bizarre and extraordinary crime. Known as the "sex slave" or "girl in the box" case, here's the whole story - too strange to be anything but true - of Colleen's horrifying imprisonment by Cameron Hooker. Told by the district attorney who tried the case, it is a tale of riveting intensity and gripping courtroom drama.

"A gripping and disturbing story of the secret life of apparently normal people. At once, horrific and engrossing." (Vincent Bugliosi, author of Helter Skelter)
Not a big reader. I read so much at work that I don't enjoy reading for pleasure. I fall asleep too easy. Audible has been the answer!!!
Better for me -- I fall asleep when I read the print version of anything.
The compassion and calmness of telling the story.
Colleen Stan & her strength to survive!
I had seen the Lifetime movie based on this story, but was interested to read/listen to the book. I have seen the documentary regarding the movie & knew the story was a bit different from the movie. Well written and well narrated.
This just wasn't right with the narration. The woman has almost a child voice and she is reading such gruesome sadomasochistic material. It's just weird and made it uncomfortable. She should be reading children's books.
Did not like the narrator she was hard to understand and had a very mousy voice. The story was not written very well.
Sure, especially if they are true crime lovers.
Not particularly. I liked this one because I live in one of the towns mentioned in the book.
