They were held in brutal captivity—and managed to make it out alive.
This is their story.
The Lost Girls are Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry, and Gina DeJesus—three innocent young women who were kidnapped, imprisoned, and repeatedly molested and beaten in a Cleveland home basement for over a decade by a depraved man named Ariel Castro. Their incredible escape, in May 2013, made headlines all over the world.
“Absorbing…a page-turning, detailed overview of this remarkable story.”
In this up-close-and-personal account—including exclusive interviews with Castro’s family members, secret girlfriend, neighbors, and others—veteran investigative journalist John Glatt reveals what it was like as Michelle, Amanda, and Gina waited, bound and chained, to be found. Shocking and heartbreaking, The Lost Girls is a true-crime tale that no reader will soon forget.
“John Glatt is one of the finest true crime craftsmen writing today.”
