Lydia is beautiful, ruthless and manipulative – she always gets what she wants. She knows the only way to get Jason to speak is to engage him in a dangerous battle of wits. Local detective and old friend Alex Gilbey warns her off the case, but he has no idea just how far Lydia will go to court darkness.

"Her name is Diane Jones. Today her presence is calm and
warm. I knew her as a quiet, terrified child struggling to grow
up, nay, even to stay alive in a large violent matriarchal family.
There was no father figure, only a sequence of men. Diane was
thirteen years old when I first met her. Through a program in the
California Department of Social Services, I had been assigned to
be Big Sister to a younger sister of Diane. This younger sister
was also badly abused both in maternal violence and in sexual
abuse, as was Diane, but to a much lesser degree. I thought of
Diane's mother as a raging bull with massive mood swings from
manipulative and charming to a cruel, mean and evil woman. I
myself was afraid of her. If I had known what was really going
on during the years I worked with the family, I would not have
had the power to do anything about it. My only hope and
motivation at that time was to give them a view of what life was
like from a different perspective and thus help them be kinder to
their children. I am always appalled by the fact that Social
Services felt it was best to keep children connected to their
families no matter how monstrous the evil in the home.
Twenty-six years later, we are all wiser."
Point Last Seen is an intensely personal work. This is a true story of one woman's odyssey through three complex issues of childhood sexual abuse, domestic violence and mental illness.
All too often we hear or read horrific stories of children being abducted by pedophiles and shudder at the thought of what these innocent victims must have experienced. Rarely, if ever, do we hear how the terrifying experiences affect these victims as they journey through their lives. Ricky Hunter tells her story of being abducted at age five and how this terrifying ordeal shaped her life from childhood through to early womanhood and beyond.
Feelings of powerlessness, deadness, states of depression and post traumatic stress all placed Ricky in a precarious and vulnerable position. All too often we hear or read stories of domestic violence, vicious physical, mental and emotional attacks on defenseless women and children and shudder at the thought of what these victims must endure during and after their horrendous ordeal. Rarely, if ever, do we hear anything about how these victims survive their traumatic experiences. How do they cope with their day to day lives? How deep do their scars run? How fierce are their recurring images? Just what does the future hold?
Here Ricky Hunter tells her unabridged story. Her seemingly endless struggle to gain insight into how to process the images and emotions tied in with the horrifying events that happened to her are paying off. Having the tools to handle a melange of personal conundrums, in the face of overwhelming odds has enabled Ricky to gain control of her life.
Ricky's success in taking back her life one day at a time started with coming out of denial and facing her abuse issues head-on. For one person to survive such traumatic events and come out the other side is testimony to the human spirit.
