Incest. Abandonment. Crime. Betrayal . . . the integral elements of Sandy Wilson's life.Born of incest to a brother and sister, then abandoned to the care of her grandparents, Sandy learned to forage in dumpsters for food, to dupe government caregivers, and to defraud insurance companies. When she was six-years-old, her father returned from prison. Within hours, he had molested her and reestablished himself as the head of the family. Sandy became his criminal accomplice and his sexual partner. She accompanied him on countless burglaries throughout the Pacific Northwest. Through the years, she knew that her father ducked FBI raids, murdered two teen-age hitchhikers, sweet-talked prostitutes into his bed while molesting their daughters, and committed crimes with other accomplices. Somehow, he avoided capture or prosecution. After a decade of his brutal enslavement and her grandmother's silent complicity, Sandy emancipated in the only way she knew - with cunning and violence. Determination. Hope. Self-preservation . . . the enduring elements of Sandy Wilson's survival.
