Deliver us From Evil: The True Story of Mexico's Most Famous Kidnapping
Translated into English from the original #1 Library Journal/Criticas best-selling Spanish memoir Libranos del mal, Deliver Us from Evil is one of the few first-person accounts of a Mexican kidnapping ever published. The plot twists and turns in this all-too real story could hardly be more dramatic: blindfolded for much of her ordeal, Ernestina learned to identify the members of this well-organized, brutal, professional kidnapping gang by voice and smell. In a bizarre reversal of the Stockholm Syndrome, one of the kidnappers fell ?in love? with her, bringing her flowers, even hiring a mariachi group to serenade her. Physcially and mentally brutalized, Ernestina used her wits to placate and even befriend members of the gang who held her life in their hands. Deliver Us from Evil plunges into the dark world of crime, rage, and violence without mercy, culminating in a thrilling and truly unforgettable climax.
