This is a true-to-life tale of murder and family heartbreak, justice and forgiveness. This writer shows us by way of fiction that we are bought with a price!

This is a true story about a murder of a handicapped teenager.
Who would want to murder a handicapped teenager and his three friends. That's what Frank Hager, the father of one of the missing boys, wonders when he realizes his son has been missing ever since he left a local high school basketball game the night before.
Hager has tried his best to be a good father, failing as often as not. Patient and sincere. Hager is the opposite of the hard-boiled detective assigned to the case, a friend who is on the local police dept. The two of them hounded by the reporters . Both determined to get to the bottom of this case. But the truth may be more frightening than either of them had imagined.
This book is the true to life tale of murder and family heartbreak, justice and forgiveness.
Wonderful read, sad, but wonderful.

This is NOT a true crime. It has been sorted incorrectly. I found it badly written and unrealistic though the set-up of murdered mentally retarded teens could have been interesting. The author obviously has no knowledge of police procedures. The resolution of the crime or accident is mildly interesting. Perhaps my enjoyment was limited by the fact that PBS has mis-classified the book as True Crime and I was expecting something real.

I enjoyed this book because it starts out fast and held my attention to the very end. Sad story of what it takes to forgive.
