Publisher's Summary

Years ago, an evil wind did blow through my hometown of London, Ontario, culminating in a series of grisly murders...the suspect remains unknown....

Sick is a brutally honest account of childhood abuse and how I uncovered several connections between my father and the tissue killings. Some of the names have been changed to protect the innocent.... All of the accounts are true and can be corroborated through historical medical records and or independent witness accounts.

Amazing story

I've been waiting for this to come to audible. It's dark, humorous, disturbing, and triumphant. A lesson for everyone on asking questions, talking to children, not looking the other way...

“SICK” IS THE MOST AMAZING AUDIO BOOK I HAVE HEARD

The title says it all. If you enjoy any form of true crime run don’t walk to download SICK! It is by far one of the best listens I have ever experienced. Even if parts were exaggerated to gain the audience’s appeal, it doesn’t matter. The author is so talented I could not believe her graphic pros describing her terrible life growing up with a mother that makes MOMMIE DEAREST seem like a beautiful and heartwarming fairy tale.

I simply could not stop listening to SICK! Many of us have experienced child abuse, but in my opinion Cindy Lee Loucks went through hell unsurpassed by any other person or story I have heard about or listened to! Her father was an equal opportunity monster as well.

This book is not for the weak at heart! I guarantee, you will be amazed, heartbroken, and it will even send chills through your entire soul, as told by the daughter of two evil parents, that in my mind seemed as horrible as the BTK Killer.

I do believe some of the text was extremely shocking with maybe even a little fiction thrown in. Again, this in NO WAY makes “SICK” less of an outstanding book. I loved this true story, and will keep it in my library for a second, third, and even a fourth listen.

I wish Cindy Lee, its author, the best as she continues her journey to complete recovery. To me Cindy is by far the strongest strongest person I have ever heard or even read about. Thank you for a GREAT listen. “SICK” is FANTASTIC. Thank you for reading my review. Steve

Interesting, well told true story.

As a true crime lover, I wasn’t sure how I would feel about this book but I was captivated almost immediately. It’s been a while since I found a book I binge listened to. I found the author to be honest and open about things most people won’t speak about. Very interesting in a number of ways. Highly recommend to those who have suffered abuse or just have an interest in true crime stories.

Title of book is (sadly) spot on!!🤯

This book contains some of the most heinous
outrageous , jaw-dropping , nausea inducing form of child rearing/abuse that can be bestowed upon a child!! Shock and outage are words that just scratch the surface as to the way authorities and child welfare system handled the gross downright appalling issues of this “family “ structure , and I can only pray that the same head turning isn’t the way cases are handled today!!!
Cindy you are a survivor , you should hold your head up high and be proud that you’ve had the strength , courage to put all of this “sickness “ out there for the world to see , and in doing so it helps you heal , move forward , live a quilt free life of happiness , cheer . prosperity!!
As a side note: I really enjoyed how this book was written . I enjoyed listening to the narrator , I felt she put a spin onto the already cleverly put together words , phrases and added just the right amount of ooomph when needed . I felt she did a great job bringing your book to life .

Gripping sorrow filled life of a victim of horror at hands of her family.

Thank you Cindy for sharing the Bizarro horror filled life you’ve lived. I had a freak-show childhood too. But nothing as devastating as you. This audiobook had my attention from start to finish.

very very repetitive

It sometimes felt more like ATV show or infomercial then a story and no real resolve what was given nothing was said as to where the father is now where the mother is now. Not a badd book by any means but definitely could use some Polish.

A survivors account

Sick is a story about one woman’s experience of incest and unspeakable acts of abuse, inflicted by her parents and her brother. I commend this courageous woman , who in my opinion is so brave and the story needed to be told.

Sick

This book was good.I understand the catharsis writing out your story can hold.I saw much of my family in this family and do agree.The sacriest monsters are human beings.This woman survived a childhood most people can not imagine. Cate Luis was a good narrator,with only a few repeats of lines. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.'
