"If you enjoy reading books that enrage you and make you want to throw the book across the room, this is for you. Denise Huskins and her husband Aaron Quinn were awoken in the middle of the night, bound and drugged—and then Denise was kidnapped and held for a ransom. Described as a real life “Gone Girl”, you will go through a variety of emotions throughout this book. Outrage, despair—and finally a little hopeful. I can’t imagine the frustration and distrust this couple experienced with victim blaming, seemingly incompetent law enforcement, and the brutal and violent offenders they dealt with."
“Aaron Quinn and Denise Huskins have written a profoundly moving, heartbreaking and surreal true crime exposé about their Kafkaeque ordeal in a criminal justice system that quickly became an entrenched criminal injustice system. Quinn and Huskins were triply victimized: first by violent criminals who kidnapped, robbed and raped; second by staggeringly incompetent, dishonest, and corrupt police investigators; and finally by uncritical and vindictive media and social media that eagerly promulgated a false and misleading narrative. Victim F is a true crime story masterfully told that combines captivating legal drama with a penetrating exposé. You will not be able to put it down. Victim F stands as an object lesson for police and prosecutors on how not to bungle a criminal investigation, how not to create an alternate universe that bears no relationship to facts or reality, and how not to re-victimize real victims of violent crime. It is important reading for anyone who cares about improving truth-finding and the quality of justice in America’s legal system. “
“Unfortunately trauma remains one of the most common and challenging phenomena facing patients and the mental health professionals treating them. Victim F is a compelling and illuminative read and a testament to the importance of understanding the struggle to heal from trauma. It is more crucial than ever that we come to understand those suffering, and even ourselves, with compassion and empathy. Kudos to Denise Huskins and Aaron Quinn for bravely showing us the way.”
“A powerful story of crime, injustice and, ultimately, triumph. Told with heart and verve, this searing tale keeps you reading well into the night.”
“A gripping read—and an important cautionary tale about how crime victims can be victimized not just by criminals but by the criminal justice process itself. The Quinns’ book sadly reminds us not only of the terrible harms criminals inflict, but of how far we have to go to ensure victims aren’t harmed by the process designed to bring criminals to justice. After reading this story, more people will see the importance of a start-by-believing approach to truly hearing from victims.”
“The compelling true story of the so-called “real-life Gone Girl” kidnapping-rape case and the bungled police investigation that turned on the husband and wife victims as suspects.”
