I choose not to read this because Sanford Clark did not leave this earth in dignity nor redeem himself whatsoever. He was a pedophile and a psychopath. No conscience to speak of. This author must be talking about another Sanford Clark because this architect was a weirdo and a felon in my book, and just a nasty nasty man. This book here sounds to glorify him. Yuck he doesn't deserve that. And he most definitely "emerge intact". HA!
"Fair warning to readers who don't enjoy gruesomely detailed investigations into horrendous - and all too real - crimes: this book is not for you. The Road Out of Hell documents the grisly murders committed by Gordon Stewart Northcott on his chicken ranch in Wineville, California, between 1926 and 1928 - aspects of which were the focus of the 2008 film Changeling. It also describes the traumatic experiences of Northcott's nephew, Sanford Clark, who was held captive, brutalised, and forced to help kill the boys trapped at the ranch. Though author Anthony Flacco embellishes the official record somewhat, Clark's son Jerry ends the book with an epilogue that showcases Clark's inner strength and emotional resilience."

This was a heart wrenching story.
A cop murders another cop and gets away with it for 50 yrs.This book is well written and full of details.It happend hear in WA.A good read.
This is an excellent and inspiring book. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is, we really don't know what within Sanford Clark made him able to cast off hell and make a life for himself. This book truly plumbs the depths as Sanford's mother and uncle and his maternal grandmother were truly evil people. How Sanford and his sister managed to get through this relatively unscathed is a truly a miracle.
It's also amazing that Sanford was fortunate enough to deal with prosecutors who understood what he had been through, even in the 1920s and to treat him with sympathy and true caring. I didn't expect that at all, but I hope Loyal Kelley lived a long and happy life to reward him for his enlightened treatment of Sanford Clark.
