Overview

Where was Sandra?

Across the country, parents watched with growing panic as the surveillance video was replayed on the evening news: a young girl in black leggings and a Hello Kitty t-shirt, skipping alone through the mobile home park where she lived. Her bouncing steps carry her quickly across the screen and beyond the camera’s view—just two weeks after she celebrated her eighth birthday, Sandra Cantu disappeared.

Within days, panic gave way to horror when investigators reported that Sandra’s neighbor, 28-year-old Melissa Huckaby, had been arrested and charged with the rape and murder of the young girl.

Sandra’s death at the hands of a trusted adult female sent a powerful message to parents everywhere: The days of warning against “Stranger Danger” are long gone, having been replaced by an even darker era where stereotypes no longer exist and families can never be sure who to trust.

Editorial Reviews

Los Angeles Times Bestselling Author - Cathy Scott
“Writing about the tragic death of a child, especially at the hands of someone she knew and trusted, is not any easy task. But dogged research and Dittrich’s skills as a veteran detective lend a rare behind-the-scenes look into what occurred that spring day. Good for Stacy for bringing this important case to the forefront.”

    Not Impressed

    The way this book is written makes it difficult to follow. All of the information found within the book has been previously reported, if you followed the case in the news then you already know everything contained in the book. I was greatly disappointed.

    Good

    This book is interesting but not what I have come to expect from Stacy Dittrich.

    I am a big fan of all her CeeCee Gallagher novels and hope that she writes many more of them.
