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.

Did not like the narrator she was hard to understand and had a very mousy voice. The story was not written very well.
