Product Description

From the Back Cover

AS SEEN ON NATIONAL TV

A MISSING DAUGHTER

In 1991, eleven-year-old Jaycee Lee Dugard was kidnapped on her morning walk to the school bus. The search for Jaycee made national headlines, and the case was repeatedly featured on "America's Most Wanted." But despite her family's tireless efforts, Jaycee's disappearance remained a mystery...

A PAROLED CRIMINAL

Then, in August 2009, a registered sex offender named Phillip Garrido appeared on the University of California, Berkeley campus alongside two young women whose unusual behavior sparked concern among campus officials and law enforcement. That visit would pave the way for shocking discovery: that Garrido was Jaycee Lee Dugard's kidnapper

A HOUSE OF HORRORS

Jaycee's story was revealed: For eighteen years, she had lived in an outbuilding on the Garrido property in Antioch, CA, just two hours away from her childhood home. Kept in complete isolation, she was raped by Garrido, who fathered her two daughters. When news broke of Jaycee's discovery, there was a huge outpouring of relief across the nation. But questions remain: How did the Garridos slip past authorities? And how did Jaycee endure her captivity? This is the story of a girl-next-door who was "Lost and Found."

With 8 pages of dramatic photos"

HASH(0x9f544a14) out of 5 stars Disappointed 16 Mar. 2011
By danadu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I was very disappointed in this book! The front cover of the book says "The true story of Jaycee Lee Dugard and the abduction the shocked the world" But really this book is primarily about her capture Phillip Garrido. The book details Garridos life well into the 150's (pages). What Jaycee indured in her many years of captivity is dully noted (if at all). There are several times where the author repeats what he just wrote. Also the editing is poor. If you are looking for a book all about Phillip Garridos life, then this may be a book for you. But if you are wanting to read about Jaycee and her years in captivity then I highly suggest you pick another book!

HASH(0x9f519084) out of 5 stars Well Written, But Sensationalistic At Times 24 April 2011
By Frederick S. Goethel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Living in the greater the Central Valley in an area between where Jaycee was kidnapped and where she was held hostage, I have been able to follow this in great depth. Actually, due to the amount of news coverage, I would have trouble not following it, even if I were inclined. And I think it is safe to say that most people find this whole episode sickening and hope the Garridos will get whatever the courts can pile on them and that the parole officials will see fit to keep them locked up this time.

The author does a generally good job of covering the story from the very beginning. He actually goes back into Garrido's background, and traces his path through life. From his time in childhood until he committed the first abduction and rape, he seemed like many young men of that era. Where he veered off is anyone's guess. The author attempts to answer the question, but doesn't really get anywhere.

The author covers the first abduction and rape in great detail. In fact, a little too much detail. We hear about it in great detail (chronologically) while it occurred, when the police questioned him and his victim and again at his trail. It seemed totally unnecessary and was done both to add pages and to make everything more sensationalistic. That could have been left out.

The author describes how Phillip and Nancy met while he was in prison and then details the kidnapping. He also describes the living condition in the back yard of the Garrido home and what life was like while Jaycee was held captive. The author did diverge into some speculation, which I don't think has any place in a "true" crime book. He attempts to describe what Jaycee when through in those early days and how Phillip "brutally raped" Jaycee. While this is good for book sales, the author has no way of knowing what really happened in those first few months of captivity. Only the principals involved know, along with law enforcement, and that has all been tightly sealed.

Finally, the author keeps going back to every child that was kidnapped in the area of Jaycee's kidnapping and the area where Phillip and Nancy live with the insinuation that they might be responsible. There has never been any evidence that they did this more than once (with the exception of a failed attempt prior to Jaycee) so this is again a form of speculation that could have been deleted, or at least minimized.

The book is a good overview of the situation until the time of the books release, although a lot has transpired since, including the confession by Phillip to law enforcement officials. He confessed with the hope of leniency for his wife, which failed. If you are interested in this case, this is a good place to start. However, remember that not everything the author has written has been verified, and some is speculation on his part.

HASH(0x9ca5af6c) out of 5 stars Couldn't stop reading it...very well researched and written. 18 Aug. 2011
By Paul DiCarlantonio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book after reading the preview online and reading Jaycee Dugard's personal memoir "A Stolen Life". This book gave graphic details to not only Jaycee Dugard's case, but also Phillip Gurrido's life and other abductions that occurred in the same area/time. What I liked most about this book is that because it was a biography, the reader sees more than just what was from the victim's standpoint. For example, I knew that Jaycee's stepfather witnessed her abduction, but he was barely mentioned in "A Stolen Life". The author definitely did his research and it was very well written. -Laura DiCarlantonio

HASH(0x9cd95edc) out of 5 stars A Survival Story 24 April 2011
By E. B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This story showed how Philip Garrido could slip through the cracks and live all of those years virtually unnoticed while he kept a child in slavery and forced her to bear his children. In this story the incompetence of those in charge of keeping society free from such predatory animals was simply mind-boggling to me. First of all after such a heinous crime against the young woman Kathy Campbell he should have not only been smacked into a cell, but it should have also kept him there for the life term he was sentenced to serve. That he got out after, I think it was 9 years, was a joke. So he wore a monitoring device, but it might as well have been a charming little ankle bracelet for all the good it did. How many times did the dunderheads in charge of monitoring him notice he had disappeared off the radar, sometimes for as much as 8 hours, and just rolled over and took another nap. How many times did someone "investigate" and find nothing. Interesting to me that Garrido seemed to be perfectly normal until after the head injury. There is always a reason(I think) that someone deviates from the norm and that seemed to be his. That followed by drugs of all kinds made him into the monster he is. Some wonder why Jaycee did not try to get away. Go back and read again how long she was kept locked in that windowless room and the numerous assaults she endured. Read again that she was eleven years old. Read again that she was held for years and had two daughters (daughters she loved and tried her best to care for) before she was given any chance to escape. I think that to survive she had to bond with her captures some and she must have felt that to save her daughters she had to lie. How did she know, if she told someone that they would believe her and would not send her back to Garrido. I think she was a brave girl, a very smart girl, and a loving mother who would have given her all for her children. I hated the story for the incompetence shown, but I was proud of the Jaycee and wish her and her children well. Eunice Boeve author of Maggie Rose and Sass

HASH(0x9c54a018) out of 5 stars Lost and Found: The True Story of Jaycee Dugard 22 Jan. 2011
By April C. McGee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a great book. I have read and enjoyed many of John Glatt's true crime books and was not disapointed with this one.

There is a lot of information about Pillip Garrido's life which took time and research. I was impressed with all the information about what happened in his life before he kidnapped Jaycee. I would like to have read more about Jaycee and her family.

I hope another book will follow when the trail is over to reveil what happens during the trial.
