In January 2007, two boys were found in the home of Michael J. Devlin, a “nice enough guy” who managed a pizza parlor in Kirkwood, Missouri. One boy had been kidnapped four days earlier. The other, Shawn Hornbeck, had been missing for four years. How and why did this fifteen-year old, whose face appeared on thousands of milk cartons and “Have You Seen Me?” posters, stay with his abductor in plain view for four years, only an hour from his family home?
From award-winning journalist Kristina Sauerwein comes this riveting story of the American kidnapping that startled the nation and catapulted the chilling reality of Stockholm Syndrome into the spotlight. Shawn had many opportunities to ask for help: he was left alone in his kidnapper’s apartment many times, and had phone and Internet access. But he never tried to escape. This is the first time the full story has been told, complete with interviews with law enforcement, and top psychological experts; and a real-life happy ending.
From the Back Cover:
In January 2007, two boys were found in the Kirkwood, Missouri, home of Michael Devlin, a 41-year-old pizza parlor manager who was described by those around him as a “nice enough” guy. One of the boys, Ben Ownby, had been
kidnapped just four days earlier; the other was Shawn Hornbeck. At the age of eleven, Shawn Hornbeck abruptly vanished from his rural hometown in Richwoods, Missouri, while riding his mountain bike. For the next four years the young boy lived with his abductor in plain view of others and only an hour’s drive from where he went missing. Shawn assumed his abductor’s last name, made several friends, played video games, and used the Internet freely―yet he didn’t attempt to escape. Invisible Chains explores the psychological factors involved in the kidnappings that startled a nation―from Michael Devlin’s criminal profile
to the reality behind Stockholm Syndrome―and recounts the riveting story of the abduction and miraculous rescue of Ben Ownby, who was held captive by Michael Devlin for four days, and Shawn Hornbeck, who was held captive by Michael Devlin for four years.
