Publisher's Summary

If You Find Me Dead, This Is Who Kidnapped Me....

Note hidden in boot by Abby Drover

Featuring cameos by Abby and her kidnapper! A true crime classic that made headlines around the world, shocking and moving everyone including some of the biggest celebrities - among them tough guy crooner Frank Sinatra still pained by his own son’s kidnapping a decade before.

Long before the Cleveland house of horrors, readers were awed by this gripping, in-depth narrative of non-fiction and suspense. 

Trapped, chained, and abused for months in her dismal underground cell at the age of 13, courageous Abby hides a note identifying her kidnapper.

“If I don't live through this,” says her tear-stained plea. “I would like my body to be cremated and the ashes poured all over my house....

“PS: If you find me dead, my killer is.... He kidnapped me on the morning of March 10, 1976. I also died, if so, after my 13th birthday.”

Abby then stoically hides this note identifying her kidnapper in the lining of one of her boots, assuming it will eventually be found somewhere along the shoreline together with her lifeless body.

Instead, listeners will discover how everyone worked tirelessly to solve the mystery, including a self-proclaimed psychic who incredibly and almost exactly pinpointed Abby's whereabouts!

Now years later, the author, who originally covered her improbable rescue as a newspaper reporter, collaborates with Abby to tell you her story, and lets you to meet her kidnapper, who seeks freedom and expects Abby to forgive him.

Will you be among his numerous misguided supporters?
