Lacy Johnson was held prisoner in a soundproofed room in a basement
apartment that her ex-boyfriend rented and outfitted for the sole
purpose of raping and killing her. She escaped, but not unscathed. THE OTHER SIDE is the haunting account of a first passionate and then
abusive relationship, the events leading to Johnson's kidnapping and
imprisonment, her dramatic escape, and her hard-fought struggle to
recover. At once thrilling, terrifying, harrowing, and hopeful, THE OTHER SIDE offers more than just a true crime record. In language both
stark and poetic, Johnson weaves together a richly personal narrative
with police reports, psychological evaluations, and neurobiological
investigations, provoking both troubling and timely questions about
gender roles and the epidemic of violence against women.
