But the public thinks something else has been going on in America's northland since 1997. They're calling the sudden disappearances of hundreds of college age men mysterious. They're calling the drownings murder.

"The probability is virtually zero that five intoxicated students just happened to walk similar or even different routes and end up on the riverbank." Dr. Maurice Godwin, criminal investigative psychologist, commenting on the La Crosse Wisconsin drowning cluster.

Editorial Reviews

UK - HarperCollins Authonomy

Chapter 2, Anatomy of a Drowning, so stark and clinical in style, is definitely not for the squeamish. I read it with one eye squeezed tightly shut. " Annette Russell (more reviews inside eBook)
