"I don't think that anyone knows what he or she will do when faced with a life-threatening situation, as I did on the night when I was robbed at gunpoint I didn't. I just reacted to what had happened to me. I didn't plan for it to happen the way it did. I wish it had never happened.
This book, which is a fictionalized account of what happened to me, captures the emotional aspects of what I went through and what I am still going through. It also explains, in language I could understand, the legal aspects of what I went through. I hope some good comes out of it."
