Girl in the Cellar
The Natascha Kampusch Story / Allan Hall and Michael LeidigBook - 2007
Two journalists investigate the eight-year ordeal of Natascha Kampusch, the young Austrian girl kidnapped and held hostage by a predator who committed suicide shortly after her escape.
Girl in the Cellar is true and terrifying story of Natascha Kampusch, a young Austrian girl who was kidnapped at age ten and imprisoned for eight years in a cell beneath the home of her captor. Written by Allan Hall and Michael Leidig, the first journalists to cover this story in meticulous detail, Girl in a Cellar is the definitive account of the abduction, discovery, and trial that made international headline news—a shocking true account of a young girl’s unspeakable nightmare, not unlike those suffered by Elisabeth Fritzl in Austria and Alisha Martinez in Colorado.
