    Excellent Read

    Once I started reading this book, it was hard to put down. I must confess the reason I first became interested in this book was because I personally know one of the detectives involved in solving this case. I'm usually not into reading murder/mysteries, but this book was really well put together. It really was interesting to see how the police and detectives put it all together, and how it affects their personal lives as well. It was heartwarming to see the respect they had for the victim and her family. I would definitely recommend this book. I have already given a copy to my daughter, and I am giving another copy to my best friend who is coming to visit soon from out of state.

    A must read crime story!

    This is a wonderful collaboration by the authors. The description of the police process during the case and the emotions of those involved are skillfully interwoven (it sure kept me interested in the story). If you have ever had a lost child, even for just a short time, you have some inkling of what Amy's family went through. The story shows not just the strength and courage of Amy's family in dealing with this tragedy, but the cooperation of several different law enforcement agencies (I did not know they were territorial until I read this book). This is definitely a thought provoking book. I found myself wondering what I could do to ensure my children's safety outside of the house. Amy was a very special young lady who touched so many lives and will probably continue to do so. Read the book and discover why the detectives who worked the case refer to Amy as 'Our Amy'.

    Finding Amy was enthralling. I couldn't put it down.

    I finished Finding Amy book in just 2 days - I couldn't put it down. The authors did a superb job with the story - it was factual but also caring and emotional at the same time. My college age daughter is reading it next and my visiting college age niece is in line to read it when my daughter is done. Congrats to Captain Loughlin and Kate Clark Flora for a job well done!
