Publisher's summary

What if you were kidnapped, tied to a wall for a month, starved, humiliated, tortured and then they tried to murder you, but you survived? What stories would you tell of how you were able to survive and the struggles you went though? What if you went to the police and they did not believe you? What would you do to evade those trying to kill you and how would you bring the criminals to justice before they struck again? How would that change your life and the way you perceived the world and people?

The year was 1994, and Marc and his family lived an ordinary middle-class life in Miami, Florida. Little did he know that in November of that year his life and that of his family would change forever. The events that were about to unfold could not be conceived by the wildest imagination.

In this amazing audiobook he narrates the events that led to his kidnapping and his attempted murder. It will transport and place you in the warehouse were he was held and give you a unique perspective of the events that transpired during that horrific month and the physical and mental struggle to beat the odds and survive.

Marc chronicles his story in torturous detail, revealing his humiliation, pain and suffering at the hands of the Sun Gang Gym and his miraculous survival. You will understand how and why he survived and that almost everything can be taken from a human being, but one's spirit and determination to survive can never be. No one believed his story, not the police nor anyone else. Nevertheless, he remained steadfast and determined to bring the criminals to justice before they struck again.

Truly a harrowing tale - one that you won't soon forget and will uplift and inspire you.
