From the cover: “On 28 May 1996 twelve-year-old Sabine Dardenne was kidnapped by the man who turned out to be one of Belgium’s most heinous paedophiles. She was his prisoner for eighty long days. ‘I lived through the Dutroux affair from the inside, and all these years I have kept silent about it — about my “personal” Dutroux Affair, my time in the company of the most hated psychopath in Belgium’. The Dutroux Affair shook the whole of Europe. In the middle of the immense machinery of investigation and justice there was Sabine Dardenne herself, Marc Dutroux’s last victim. She was held captive for eighty days, and, astonishingly, she survived. Far from sensationalising the horror, her story, dignified and restrained, is ultimately uplifting. Says Sabine Dardenne — ‘I choose to live’.”
