Not for the faint hearted
I am a big fan of torey hayden, Cathy glass and the like, it's at least in part due to Ms Hayden that I teach special needs learners. So when I saw this which seemed to show a different side of what happens to/with these kids I was curious.
I bought it some time ago and it took me a while to start it, but once I did I was hooked.
Not a book for the sensitive, you need to have a bit of detachment to listen to what they are involved with, but as a teacher who has also worked in prisons, I have already seen a bit, and felt I could cope.
Even then there were a few bits where I cringed, it was tough hearing what these kids have gone through, but there were heartwarming bits as well.
This is definitely not a book to listen to if you are tender hearted, but for those who deal with kids on a day to day basis it's an invaluable insight into what the police do and deal with.
As to the narrator, I loved him, he does some fab accents, and at times I felt like I was listening to a little girl talk.

Great story telling and disturbing but fascinating at the same time. Real life case by case stories on many horrific crimes against children. Worth a read/listen. As was the first crack house.
