You Can't Run: The Terrifying True Story of a Young Woman Trapped in a Violent Relationship
Bargain Book Copy
Mandy Thomas was just 16 when she met her ex in a shopping centre in Birmingham. Naive and blown away by the attention he paid her, Mandy was soon under his spell. And then her nightmare began.
Mandy found herself part of a cruel and violent relationship she couldn't escape. Threatened with the murder of her children, she put up with years of vicious beatings and brutal rapes in order to protect them, until one day her ex went too far. Mandy was held captive in her own home and tortured for four days, in front of her children, with a blowtorch, glass, knives and other implements. Her ordeal ended only when her daughter told her teacher, "I think my mummy is dead."
You Can't Run is the moving true story of how Mandy had her mind, body and spirit crushed by an evil, calculated and manipulative man, and how she found the strength to rebuild her life in the aftermath of one of Britain's most horrifying domestic violence cases.
