Publisher's Summary

In 1991, eleven-year-old Jaycee Lee Dugard was kidnapped on her morning walk to the school bus. The search for Jaycee made national headlines, and the case was repeatedly featured on America's Most Wanted. But despite her family's tireless efforts, Jaycee's disappearance remained a mystery.

Then, in August 2009, a registered sex offender named Phillip Garrido appeared on the University of California, Berkeley, campus alongside two young women whose unusual behavior sparked concern among campus officials and law enforcement. That visit would pave the way for a shocking discovery: That Garrido was Jaycee Lee Dugard's kidnapper.

For eighteen years Jaycee had lived on the Garrido property in Antioch, California. Kept in complete isolation, she was repeatedly raped by Garrido, who fathered her two daughters. When news broke of Jaycee's discovery, there was a huge outpouring of relief across the nation. But questions remain: How did the Garridos slip past authorities? And how did Jaycee endure her captivity? This is the story of a girl-next-door who was lost and found.

    I just retired from my teaching career with Special Need High school. Now I'm concentrating on my 9 grandkids (my hubby continues to work).

    "Get the Whole Story"

    I like that the author went back into the complete history of each person in this real life story. It helps you to understand how a person could ask so insidious. There is no mercy for this man and women but it helps you to fully understand the mind of such a narcissistic personality.

    Mr. Glatt did not disappoint. The story is well researched and very well written. It is important to remember how powerful this story was because Jaycee Dougard went missing when I was in my senior year of high school. As a result it had a powerful effect on my parenting. Stories like Ms. Dougard and Ms. Elizabeth Smart, and Adam Walsh had a tremendous impact on parenting styles in the United States. This case set precedence in psychology, and society.

    In fairness I am reviewing the story and not the book and I should get back to business. Glatt takes the necessary time to fill in the back story which I always appreciate in a crime novel. It is impossible to get a true look at what caused the crime if you are only focused on the titillating juicy details of a young girl stolen as a sex slave.

    Glatt does not go into details of the sexual abuse. It is acknowledged appropriately but is not the primary focus of the story. Mr. Glatt also takes time to walk the reader through the aftermath. This is also something I can appreciate in a true crime book.

    I would recommend this book to people who are interested in serial offenders. This book holds little interest for individuals who are interested in the forensics that drive crime solving. No forensics were really available to investigators in this case.

    Story
    "Narrator should skip around on her own time!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I know a good bit of this sad story, and knowing John Glatt was the author, I expected greatness. I never got to the actual "story" b/c the narrator, Randye Kaye, couldn't have been more monotone and full of glee in her voice. I truly felt nearly out of control and considered throwing my iPod across the room. Glatt, Secrets in the Cellar had first-class writing and Gildart Jackson was perfect narrator. Dump Kate and I'll give your books another chance.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Her skip-to-my-loo voice and monotone to boot. What a loser.


    Any additional comments?

    My only other comment is that I wish I could block Kaye from any book I may be interested in. She's one of the most annoying narrators I have ever come across.
