    I read this book as a teen back in the 80's. It has haunted me ever since. I started to read a lot more now that I am in my 40's and I have tried on multiple occasions to remember the title of this book. I just found it by googling and bought several copies so that I could to friends. If this book doesn't shake you to the core, you have issues.

    How would you cope? On April 22, 1974: one of the most shockingl

    How would you cope?
    On April 22, 1974: one of the most shockingly brutal crimes occurred. Five people interrupted a robbery in ogden, Utah and soon become tortured hostages of the former air force officers. The victims included Stanley Walker( 20), Michelle Ansley (19), Carol Naisbitt (52), Cortney Naisbitt (16), Orren Walker( 43), three of which were killed and two severely injured. "Stanley Walker and Michelle Ansley were dead when they were found.  Carol Naisbitt made it as far as the ambulance ride, but was pronounced dead on arrival at St. Benedict’s Hospital in Ogden, Utah. Cortney Naisbitt was not expected to survive, but he pulled through with serious and permanent brain damage, and was hospitalized for 266 days. (Delporto) Orren Walker survived as well, but had extensive burns around the mouth and face, along with major ear damage from the torture." The rest of the book focuses on the mental and physical recovery of Cortney Naisbitt. I really liked how the story of the recovery was very inspirational, but the gory side of the book was way to much for me. I have a tough stomach and this book event to me. I would recommend reading this book to only a select group of people. Most people I feel wouldn't be able to handle the imagery of horrific events that takes place in this book. Kinder only wrote two or three other books, and they are all about true events. But unless your into sunken ships and so called UFO sightings i would not be interested nor would i recommend reading them.

    Very sad

    'Victim' now stands as a masterpiece in the true crime genre. Published during a time when the victim's rights movement was newly emerging, it exposes in brutal detail the terrible physical, psychological, and financial trauma suffered by victims of violent crime. It also lays out the appalling fact that due to inexcuseable judicial machinations, these survivors are often victimised again by an uncaring and inbalanced justice system which seems to care more about the rights of the criminals than the rights of the victims.
