This book is really good,it is one of those you can't really believe it happened stories. The investigation of the first dissappearance is very sad.

A tragic tale of 2 young girls and their fateful meeting with a monster. It happened in my backyard so I was familiar with the story and the authors did an excellent job of telling it. This is a must read.

Very well written, easy read of the horrifying events that forever altered multiple families. The author provides quite a unique point of view as both insider/family member and investigator helping to bring the perpetrator to justice.

This book also highlights several problems with society and our justice system: 1) political correctness - in our effort to avoiding offending someone who gives off the appearance of being an upstanding member of society, we may be allowing them to quite literally get away with murder. 2) pride and ignorance - in a quest to be the agency/detective in charge, outside help is often ignored, often times resulting in justice being delayed or not served or even worse in another innocent being harmed in some way. 3) lack of funding/ training/accountability/support for family help agencies - allegations are often ignored that if investigated and addressed could prevent future harm.
