One monster. Three innocent girls. Ten years in captivity.

22 August 2002: 21-year-old Michelle Knight disappears walking home.

21 April 2003: Amanda Berry goes missing the day before her seventeenth birthday.

2 April 2004: 14-year-old Gina DeJesus fails to come home from school.

For over a decade these girls remained undetected in a house just three miles from the block where they all went missing, held captive by a terrifying sexual predator. Tortured, starved and raped, kept in chains, Captive reveals the dark obsessions that drove Ariel Castro to kidnap and enslave his innocent victims.

Based on exclusive interviews with witnesses, psychologists, family and police, this is an unflinching record of a truly shocking crime in a very ordinary neighbourhood.

Very little details in this book. If you were to read a newspaper article on the case you would find more information. Basically the book is quotes from a friend of a brother or a cousin who lived across the street from the man who abducted these women. It focuses more on the backstory of life growing up for Ariel and less on the horrendous activities that went on in that house. Save your time and don't bother.
