Perfect Victim" tells the bizarre story of a young woman kidnapped while hitchhiking from Oregon to her home in California in 1977. Colleen Stan is sadistically kept prisoner for most of 7 years. She is forced to spend many nights in a small box; a "dungeon" would be too generous a description. In a special -and positive- twist, a co-author, Christine McGuire, is the prosecutor! As an author, she may favor her position. She takes an obvious shot or two at the defense counsel, but who can blame her, given the low life of a defendant?

Called the "sex slave," and "the girl in the box" case, this is the story behind Colleen Stan's terrifying, seven-year-long imprisonment by Cameron Hooker as told by the district attorney who tried the case. Too bizarre to be anythin g but true, it is a tale of riveting intensity and gripping courtroom drama.

Perfect Victim - Christine McGuire. This book is not elegantly written, but this is appropriate as the subject matter is disturbing, upsetting, tawdry, dirty & a number of other adjectives, but most importantly: real. Dedicated to colleen jean stan. This is a must read for anyone (like myself) who has found themselves turned on by the kinkier sides of eroticism and porn. This book is a must read for anyone who thinks that anything kinky is a gateway to criminal behavior and is itself criminal. This book is important because it makes a clear delineation between bizarre good fun and criminal activity.

by Carla Norton and Christine McGuire. The author of this book does NOT fail in attempting to make clear why Colleen Stan didn't leave and also why some people might not believe her. It is a very balanced and well-written tale. It is a horrifically fascinating story of a bizzare sadist, his compliant wife, and their victim. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 18 years ago.

Reviews about Perfect Victim (7):
Flarik
i am going to give this book to some young, adult, female relatives to read as i want them to understand how it isn't safe to get into a car with anyone just because there is a woman or even a child in the car.

this infamous case involved a man who talked his wife into helping him to kidnap a hitchhiker. i think that his wife got off easy legally. she should have been prosecuted and put in prison, too. she cooperated mainly because she wanted this man so much, which was a narcissistic motive. so was the jealousy that caused her to help the victim escape.

they were driving around with their baby when they saw the victim hitchhiking and offered her a ride. he had prepared everything for such an opportunity. the victim didn't imagine that he would be dangerous with his wife and baby in the car.

it was a challenging case to prosecute due to the brainwashing involved, which was a new concept at that time for the public. in the patty hearst case, the jury had failed to understand or believe "stockholm syndrome," and this case involved something similar.

This book is based on a true story. It is educational and entertaining. I would recommend it for classes on criminology or in the study of victims. It was amazing to see what a hold the victims kidnapper had on the victim. There were lots of twist s and turns as well. A great read, but be prepared for darkness. This is not a fairy tale.

"Perfect Victim" tells the bizarre story of a young woman kidnapped while hitchhiking from Oregon to her home in California in 1977. Colleen Stan is sadistically kept prisoner for most of 7 years. She is forced to spend many nights in a small box; a "dungeon" would be too generous a description. She is raped, tortured and just plain denigrated by her captors, Cameron and Jan Hooker. In the process she becomes their virtual slave. Apparently "brainwashed", she ignores opportunities to escape. This is the most difficult part of the plot for the reader to fathom. Why didn't Colleen run? Was she truly brainwashed? This reviewer believes she was, but others will certainly disagree. Suddenly! Colleen is a free woman and the wheels of justice begin to spin. The second half of "PV" is concerned with the arrest and trial of the Hookers. In a special -and positive- twist, a co-author, Christine McGuire, is the prosecutor! As an author, she may favor her position. She takes an obvious shot or two at the defense counsel, but who can blame her, given the low life of a defendant? I firmly believe reviewers should not divulge endings (or how Colleen became "free"), so I will end quickly. "PV" is definitely recommended to true crime devotees. The only drawbacks are the disturbing nature of the plot and the amount of space devoted to the trial. It could have been edited down, but this is a minor detail. Who can blame author McGuire for writing about prosecutor McGuire? It's unclear if "PV" is readily available. My advice is to persist in finding a copy.

This book is one you can't put down. I read it in just a few days. The story is so amazing. I'm glad I ordered this book and I would recommend it to anyone interested in a true story of human survival.

Not for the faint of heart! A well written and genuinely disturbing account of a crime that happened 40 years ago, which continues to fascinate and disgust an entire new generation of true crime afficionados.

I missed the movie on TV so bought the book. The main character was hitchhiking to my old home town and so I was curious to read it. Very explicit sexual content.

What a story. and its true. I was gnashing my teeth reading this , and how 2 people could just USE another human, like a possession! I still shudder--thinking of how this man thought, and the things he did, and finally , the dramatic court scenes...and the lawyers who didn't sleep till this was over. I could NOT put this down. Makes you less naive...after you've read it.
I can't imagine being held against my will or brainwashed into believing my every move was being watched....I guess it could happen. What a horrifying experience to be held captive almost to the point of not being able to breathe. The author does an excellent job of retelling the story of one woman's terrifying experience of kidnapping and captivity. A definite page Turner...on to her next book!
