Availability: Ready to download

Abducted…True stories that will leave you speechless. Read the horrific and disturbing true kidnapping case files. Kidnappings are far more common than we might imagine. Rather than simply being something that we see in film and television, every year there are real people who are abducted, taken from their homes, and not allowed to return. Sometimes the motivations are f Abducted…True stories that will leave you speechless. Read the horrific and disturbing true kidnapping case files. Kidnappings are far more common than we might imagine. Rather than simply being something that we see in film and television, every year there are real people who are abducted, taken from their homes, and not allowed to return. Sometimes the motivations are financial, sometimes they are sexual. Every time, they are criminal. While every kidnapping does not have the classic ransom note featuring letters cut out of the newspaper, they all share the ability to scare, intimidate, attack, and damage those at the centre of the abduction. In this book, we will be looking through some of the strangest, most violent, and most notorious cases of kidnapping. While we might think we are familiar with the basic premise of a kidnapping, these kind of crimes rarely follow a simple format. Instead, many of them differ drastically and come in all shapes and sizes. They can be the acts of individual deranged criminals or the result of many months planning by a larger organisation. Often, there are demands such as money or political promises. Sometimes, the kidnapper simply vanishes into the night and is never heard from again. With such a diverse range of different motivations and demands, every case in this book is different. The idea of kidnapping is something that has existed in our cultural consciousness for a long time. Whether it is Helen of Troy being taken from her home and starting the Trojan Wars or Madeline McCann vanishing from her hotel room, the public is always fascinated by the prospect of a kidnapping story. So read on and find out exactly what it is that so demands our attention in the vicious world of the kidnapper and the people they abduct. Inside, read about: • Well-known kidnapping like the one of Patricia Hearst or John Paul Getty III • The chilling story of a little boy who fell victim to drunken criminals • The scary story of the girl who vanished one quiet night • The stolen baby who solved her own kidnapping • The first case of kidnapping with a ransom demand in American history and much more.

    Short (77 pages) but interesting reading. I don't read a lot of true crime, but this is not a book about one crime .. it's a book about many. * The first kidnapping ever recorded in the United States * Patty Hearst * John Paul Getty Kidnappings are far more common than we might imagine. Every year there are real people who are abducted for various reasons... financial, revenge, sexual. Every kidnapping is a little different. Some victims make it home ... others don't.

What you find in this book are some of the strangest, most violent, most notorious cases of kidnapping. * A Woman Who Became Friends With Her Kidnappers * Sydney Opera House Kidnapping * The Stolen Baby Who Solved Her Own Kidnapping Each case gives the reader a synopsis of how the abduction was executed .... how the families reacted ... and the investigations. In some cases, the kidnappers made mistakes, in others, the police bungled the clues. So many kidnappings do not not have a happy ending. The victim runs a large chance of being killed or dying accidentally. Those who do return are often irrecoverably affected by their ordeal. A short, easy read. Very well-written.
