    Description

    An estimated 800,000 children are reported missing each year in the United States. Only one in 10,000 are found dead. Yet unsolved child murders are almost a daily occurrence - of nearly 52,000 juvenile homicides between 1980 and 2008, more than 20 percent remain open. Drawing on FBI reports, police and court records, and interviews with victims’ families, this book provides details and evidence for 18 unsolved cases from 1956 to 1998.

    Good overview

    If you are looking for a good overview of cases both well known and overlooked this might be a good book for you. What struck me at this time of BLM is the “white child in danger” syndrome present in this book and so many others. I don’t think the author intended to exclude cases involving children of color but she has and that enforces an incorrect notion that white suburban children are the predominant victims of crime and the only ones worthy of our empathy. The book also consistently evokes community fear about crime which is greatly overblown when compared to the very real fear that minority communities suffer every day. I’m not intending a screed here but as times change it’s important we consider a more universal look at the criminal justice system and go beyond the white view only.

    Better than I thought

    I am into true crime and grabbed this book out if curiosity. I wasn't sure what to expect or if I could get through it as the title says bluntly what it is about. However I was very pleased. It covers numerous well-known cold cases with details about each case. Although gruesome details were shared at times, it was done tactfully and professionally and did not hinder the integrity of the case, victims, or their families. I also like how ilthe author listed the correct number to call for each case if anybody had any information. Very well done.

    Not exactly unsolved...

    Apparently, with each case it states it IS solved, but the murderers got away due to only circumstantial evidence or they died for most part. Truly not unsolved. Still sad these souls were lost so early in life. Performance was dull regardless of what this was about.

    Sad, Sad,Sad

    This book was sensitively and well written. Unfortunately it is a sad commentary on our society’s value of children. It wasn’t too graphic or gory; more a story about the victims and their relatives and the impact on them. It does leave one sad though so keep that in mind if you read this. I do recommend it, however.

    Historic Errors

    Author writes about evidence mishandling in the 1970s, uses specimen and DNA interchangeably, and untested DNA in those decades is a critique of police procedure. DNA was not commercially tested yet until the late 1990s, and was rudimentary and expensive even then. it is unfortunate that a major historic fact like this was unknown to the writer of this true crime book.

    The narrator is good, and the cases are important as less known serial murder cases from a more naive and less technically advanced time. It would be much improved if the author remembered that most records were typed and filed in cabinets; that computers were started with the operating system on a big floppy discin 1980; satellites and cell phones were not happening in 1971; and there was no cable TV or Internet. That historical perspective is nearly absent, unfortunately.

    Astonishing

    Is incredible how many psychos are out there, really twisted and sick people, it’s difficult to believe that they exist.

    Heartbreaking

    I can’t imagine what it’s like to lose a child, this book brings an awareness of how close we come to it every day. Please listen to it.
