The New York Timesâ€“bestselling account of Jaycee Lee Dugardâ€™s remarkable escape from the sexual predator who kept her captive for eighteen years.
In 1991, an eleven-year-old-girl was abducted in broad daylight. Eighteen years later, a policewoman at the University of California, Berkeley, confronted a deranged man accompanied by two young girls. During questioning the next day, the girlsâ€™ mother blurted, â€śI am Jaycee Lee Dugard.â€ť Her companion was identified as Phillip Craig Garridoâ€”a convicted drug user, rapist, and sexual predator. An astonishing story was about to unfold . . .
Now, award-winning author Robert Scott brings to light previously unrevealed information about Garridoâ€™s criminal past and manipulation of the legal system. With police and expert testimony, this book shows how Garrido managed to get out of a fifty-year prison sentenceâ€”to shatter the innocence of Jaycee Lee Dugard forever.
