As a father who has lost a child, I cherish EVERY article ever written about him, both in newsprint and magazines. Whether you're uncomfortable with the subject (which you should be if you're even the slightest bit human), or concerned about the distribution of profit (be real here, it's not like this author is making millions on this book), every reader who values information and our constitutional right to read (or write) whatever we choose should recognize that the public needs to slapped in the face with this type of story regularly, because nothing else gets their attention. In my opinion, the family is certainly entitled to their grief, but inasmuch as they participated in TV interviews and so on, they cannot now demand silence on the part of others in trying to tell this tragic story. Since they chose NOT to provide the author with access, I don't see any way they can now claim she didn't tell the story right. The fact is, that every comment about this book, every person who buys or reads this work, is reminded of these two beautiful young women, and the horrible events surrounding their disappearances, and THAT's what the book is about. I see it as a memorial, and a warning to others to help prevent this from happening to YOUR daughters. Those of you who say the author should donate all proceeds to the family's private foundation, let me ask you: what event have YOU held to raise money and donate it?

Make up your OWN mind about this book (or any other)

I support the authors right to create the book, as I do an individual's right to purchase it or not. To so obviously try to spoil sales will only spur them. I purchased it to see for myself, as will others. As far as the genre goes, this book is on par with the rest.

    An important story that needs telling, not only for the memory of the victims, but also for the hope that changes in the system prevent these kind of crimes in the future. However, this book does not do the job well - it is completely disjointed and unclear. Tone changes throughout, chronologically confusing, and many parts of the story left unfinished. And other reviews claim it is factually incorrect, not recommended.
