John Glatt

To their family, neighbors, and online friends, Louise and David Turpin presented a picture of domestic bliss: dressing their thirteen children in matching outfits and buying them expensive gifts.

But what police discovered when they entered the family home would eclipse the most shocking child abuse cases in history. For years, David and Louise had kept their children in increasing isolation, trapping them in a sinister world of torture, fear, and near starvation. Investigative journalist Glatt delves into the disturbing details and recounts the bravery of the thirteen siblings in the face of unimaginable horror.
