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.
"that poor girl"
Reeve LeClaire is a college student, dammit, not Daryl Wayne Flint's victim. Not anymore-not when Reeve is finally recovering a life of her own after four years of captivity. Flint is safely locked up in Olshaker Psychiatric Hospital, where he belongs. He is walking the grounds of the forensic unit, performing his strange but apparently harmless rituals. It seems that he is still suffering the effects of the head injury he suffered in the car crash that freed Reeve seven years ago. Post-concussive syndrome, they call it.
In many ways, Reeve LeClaire looks like a typical 22 year old girl. But Reeve is anything but normal. 10 years ago, she was kidnapped and held captive. After a lucky escape, she's spent the last six years trying to rebuild her life, a recovery thanks in large part to her indispensable therapist Dr. Ezra Lerner. But when he asks her to help another girl rescued from a similar situation, Reeve realizes she may not simply need to mentor this young victim - she may be the only one who can protect her from a cunning predator who is still out there, watching every move.
Die 12-jährige Reeve wurde das Opfer eines perfiden Triebtäters. Jahre später werden erneut drei Mädchen entführt, von denen eines entkommen kann. Schwer traumatisiert verweigert das Mädchen jegliche Aussage. Ihre Eltern bitten Reeve um Hilfe. Immer tiefer gerät sie in die Ermittlungen und ins Visier des Killers, der sie keine Sekunde unbeobachtet lässt.
