Eleven Days by former deputy sheriff Donald Harstad was published infourteen years ago which is a good while, and I guess qualifies as a forgotten book. It's a cop novel of very exceptional merit and gets my recommendation. Deputy Carl Houseman works is Maitland, Iowa, which qualifies as the truest American heartland/5(93).

ELEVEN DAYS OF HELL is the chilling true story of kidnap, torture, rape and survival. Yvonne Bornstein relives the trauma that still has the power to make her shake with fear. Year: Eleven Days in Hell is a very well researched and documented book. It illustrates to me how accurate some of the information we were receiving actually was and how wrong the rest of it turned out to be.

I was in the middle of reading a novel when this book arrived in my mailbox and the title, the front cover art, the size of the text (readable without my glasses) immediately captured my attention. I set aside the novel and didn't set down Eleven Days of Hell until I finished it/5(5).
