Reading Lost Boys, Gone Girls was frustrating, heartbreaking and at the same time inspiring. To read the histories of what is only a few of the many unsolved cases in Australia really made me stop and think how fantastic the Police and Investigating crews are. Their dedication to the job is amazing. The strength of the families that are dealing with the loss of loved ones is certainly something that I hope I never have to find for myself. The pain of not knowing where your loved one is, and if they are dead or alive, or who took them from you and why, must be more than horrible.
The worst kind of pain must be knowing that there are people out there that know things and if they would only come forward they might not be able to bring your loved one back to you, but they could at least offer you some answers, justice, and closure.
It would be wonderful if just one person who picks up this book reads one of the cases and is prompted to come forward with information. Perhaps not about one of the cases in the book but about another unsolved case. That would be awesome.
This is not a book to read if you want some light warm fuzzy type read. It’s a book the we really all should read as it really does show that even the small snippets of information can help to crack a case wide open, and even if you have been sitting on information for years thinking it’s nothing groundbreaking…you still should speak up.
Very well written and thought provoking. Showing care and compassion for the families mourning the loss of a loved one and praying daily for news.
