This is the best true crime book I have read (sorry Ann Rule)! It is so well written and paced. This is a tragic story of a wonderful young girl who went out one night like- 25 year olds do - and never came home. This book focused on the victim and the way the murderer was brought to justice by unheard of cooperation across various police and investigative agencies. There was true love in this case and this story never lost the heart of Amy. Great read.
From the front cover - Twenty-five year-old Amy St. Laurent was attractive, intelligent, and responsible. One October evening she went out to show a friend from Florida the exciting nightlife of Portland's Old Port section. She played pool. She danced. And then she disappeared. The police investigation into her murder riveted the state of Maine3 for months.
