Publisher Description

This is the untold true story of one citizen’s pointless torture and month-long captivity. The story, formerly mistold if not utterly overlooked, has been made into a feature film. Even as a dark comedy, there is little amusement to be found in human suffering. The sick and twisted minds of Mr. Schiller’s captors would be fodder for the Darwin Awards if the results were not so alarmingly inhumane. Physical, mental and emotional torture, as well as sensory deprivation and starvation, the prisoner of war like conditions differed only in the fact that Mr. Schiller was completely alone during his extended stay at the warehouse he refers to as Hotel Hell. An early victim of identity theft in the years following Hurricane Andrew in Miami, Mr. Schiller chronicles his story in tortuous detail. His humiliation, pain and suffering at the hands of these perverted social misfits is a shocking revelation.
What is it like to be imprisoned in near dungeon-like conditions? All this mayhem on American soil toward the end of the last millennium.
Greed, lust for power and the desire to inflict pain and misery were the apparent motivating forces behind this gruesome incident.
Truly a harrowing tale and one that you won’t soon forget.

Amazing story, poor editing

The author's story of captivity and survival is truly remarkable. It's a shame that the editing was poor, not doing justice to the author's story.

Beautifully written..If I could actually speak to Mr. Marc Schiller, I would like to say, yes you did help change my life for the better by reading your times it has made me laugh, made me angry, and made me happy ...I have learned a valuable lesson and that is not to focus on the past of what might have happened to me but learn from those events to make me a better person..I believe everything happens for a reason and Mr. Schilller survived for a great reason. Just by you writing this book I believe has saved countless lives ...even if the recent kidnap victims of Cleveland read this book, I believe it would help them in the same very positive way...thank you Mr. Schiller for sharing your sure have placed a lot of things in my life into perspective. God Bless you and everyone else.

Pain and Gain: The Untold True story

I watched the movie Pain and Gain and found it an odd telling of a truly horrible real life event. That evening I went online for the rest of the story. The book was fascinating and gave a different account of the story. The book was interesting, compelling, and poorly edited. The author's retelling of the horrific events made me desire even more information. There is another book here-I wonder if it will be written? It is good to read that the author/victim is doing well and his family seems to be prospering. I hope this book finds a wider audience, and a larger and deeper accounting of all the characters is written. It is also time for the criminals in this case to meet their just ends.
