On the morning of September 12, 2013, a fugitive task
force arrested Arthur Fryar at his apartment in Brooklyn.
His DNA, entered in the FBIâ€™s criminal database after a
drug conviction, had been matched to evidence from a rape
in Pennsylvania years earlier. Over the next year, Fryar
and his lawyer fought his extradition and prosecution for
the rapeâ€”and another like itâ€”which occurred in 1992. The
victimsâ€”one from January of that year, the other from
Novemberâ€”were kept anonymous in the media. Thisis the
story of Jane Doe January.
Emily Winslow was a young drama student at Carnegie
Mellon Universityâ€™s elite conservatory in Pittsburgh when
a man brutally attacked and raped her in January 1992.
While the police's search for her rapist proved futile,
Emily reclaimed her life. Over the course of the next two
decades, she fell in love, married, had two children, and
began writing mystery novels set in her new hometown of
Cambridge, England. Then, in fall 2013, she received
shocking newsâ€”the police had found her rapist.
This is her intimate memoirâ€”the story of a womanâ€™s
traumatic past catching up with her, in a country far
from home, surrounded by people who have no idea what
sheâ€™s endured. Caught between past and present, and
between two very different cultures, the inquisitive and
restless crime novelist searches for clarity. Beginning
her own investigation, she delves into Fryarâ€™s family and
past, reconnects with the detectives of her case, and
works with prosecutors in the months leading to trial.
As she recounts her long-term quest for closure, Winslow
offers a heartbreakingly honest look at a vicious crimeâ€”
and offers invaluable insights into the mind and heart of
