Without Trace is an informative and heart-stopping read by Barry Cummins, the bestselling author of Missing, back with more cases of Ireland’s disappeared — men, women and children who have vanished without trace while going about their normal lives.

What happened to two young boys who vanished in Belfast while waiting for a bus in 1974? Where is Trevor Deely, last seen walking in Dublin in December 2000? What happened to Dutch woman Leidy Kaspersma, last seen walking in Co. Kerry on a summer’s day in 1978? In Without Trace Barry Cummins profiles these and other cases of people who have vanished across Ireland in the last four decades.

He also explores dozens of cases of unidentified bodies which lie in graveyards and morgues from Donegal to Wexford. He examines ongoing efforts to find the bodies of IRA victims buried in secret graves in Monaghan, Meath and Louth, and delves into the cases of people abducted, murdered and secretly buried by Ireland’s criminal gangs.

And there are many other types of cases in this intriguing book, from a twenty-year campaign by the family of one missing woman to get answers about her case, to the amazing story of one missing Irishman’s return ‘from the grave’ in England.
