I think the author's use of his first person perspective of the case is interesting and unusual, though I guess I would like it a bit more if he made it clear that he was talking about his subjective experience rather than having the reader assume it was just a explication of the facts. That said, it was an extremely well-researched and beautifully written book. Cheers to the author!

This book wasn't so much about the disappearance of Lucie B. but of the boring lives /people who were helping look for her. It was bad enough that at the very beginning of the book the reader learns what happens to her. I am half way finished with the book but can't take anymore. Do not recommend!

    Dark and sad story.

    This is a good read for try crime buffs. Starts out a little slow and picks up.

    Pass on this one

    I love a good suspense/mystery and this true story had it all but I felt the author went off in too many directions. He knew the details of every characters life but it took me away from the story too many times. I was really disappointed, this could have been such a good read.
