    Gripping account of the Elizabeth Smart kidnapping!

    This book was superb for the interested individual who lived through the Utah Smart Kidnapping drama. It was such a great in depth review of the investigation and story. Made my heart weep for the Smart family. I feel the story was very Utah resident friendly- if you are familiar with the area all the street descriptions, local politicians, and family members will really hit home. Tom Smart was a great voice for the story.... he is a great man for all that he did for his niece! This book was GRADE-A! (Would have loved more photographs of the 9 months).

    A compelling account

    I had mixed feelings about purchasing this book, concerned that it was exploiting Elizabeth (having read her father's concerns). However, I found it compelling and an inspiring story of a family pulling together, refusing to give up, and doing everything they could think of to bring her home. Also revealing about the media and police agencies. This is an example where truth is indeed stranger than fiction. It is a miracle that Elizabeth was found. I highly recommend it.

    A Must Read!!

    WOW!! I just finished Tom Smart and Lee Benson's book. Talk about amazing!! I couldn't put it down. It was an emotional roller coaster! The detail is incredible in this book. I learned so much about the investigation and the history of Brian and Wanda. The great part about the book is that it doesn't focus on Elizabeth! Tom, Elizabeth's uncle, does an outstanding job of keeping her out of the 'spotlight' He shares HIS story!! And what a story it is!! I have great respect for all of the Smart Family after reading this book and for the whole SLC community. This is a book everyone should read!
