Product Description

On March 24, 1987, the Philadelphia Police Department received a phone call from a woman who stated that she had been held captive for the last four months. When police officers arrived at the pay phone from which the call was made, Josephina Rivera told them that she and three other women had been held captive in a basement by a man named Gary Heidnik.

This is a shocking story of kidnapping, rape, torture, mutilation, dismemberment, decapitation, and murder.

Another AWESOME read from RJ Parker! I love how the book starts out showing some of the early history of Gary Heidnik. Clearly in this case the abuse Gary endured during his childhood affected him greatly; and created mental health issues. Gary was a loner and always wanted to be in control. He became a master at his torture of women. I often think about how abuse can really affect some people like Gary Heidnik and turn them into monsters. This is an absolute must read for true crime lovers!!!!

VERY disappointed especially with the price for a book that took 20 minutes to read and some of it was pictures.
I have read thicker children's books with no pictures to my Grandchildren.
VERY disappointed and felt the price was OUTRAGEOUS for what I received!!!!
