In January 2007, two boys were found in the Kirkwood, Mo., home of Michael Devlin, a 41-year-old pizza parlor manager. One of the boys, Ben Ownby, had been kidnapped just four days earlier; the other, Shawn Hornbeck, vanished at the age of 11. For the next four years the young boy lived with his abductor in plain view of others and only an hour’s drive from where he went missing. Invisible Chains explores the psychological factors involved in the kidnapping that startled a nation-from Michael Devlin’s criminal profile to the reality behind Stockholm syndrome-and recounts the riveting story of the abduction and miraculous rescue of Ben Ownby and Shawn Hornbeck.
