The true case of the Austrian man who locked up his daughter in his cellar for 27 years and had 7 children by her. The rest of his family lived upstairs, completely unaware of what was going on below. Very scary, a true horror story. Upsetting, but hard to put down.

Truth can indeed be stranger, more horrific, evil and terrifying than fiction .... if this had not been a true crime then I would have passed it off as fiction.

Really bizarre, hard to believe. A good book about endurance, perseverance and survival.
I had to keep reading until the end.

One of the most incredible true stories I have ever read. I received it in the morning, started it in the afternoon, was finished the next afternoon. Although the setting is not the US, John Glatt writes so well, it keeps you captive. (no pun intended) This story will break your heart. It almost seems too bizarre to be true.

Very well written true crime. Hard to believe but true, the abuse/torture for years and years. I read numerous articles in the news but still found a lot more information from the book.
