American Heiress by Jeffrey Toobin
We are not above a made-for-TV-movie that actually played out in real life. A wealthy daughter, kidnapped and then radicalized? Yes please. Chances are, you're too young to remember this story, which will make it that much more compelling. As a big fan of biographies, we had a good time with Patty Hearst. Toobin sets the perfect stage for this historical time, adds juicy details to the characters and treats Patty as a real person not just a gun slinging twenty something parody. TIP: Listen to this one at 1.25X speed as the narrator could talk a little faster on this 15-hour ride. Buckle up!
