5.0 out of 5 stars High strangeness, 11 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Missing 411-Western United States & Canada: Unexplained disappearances of North Americans that have never been solved (Paperback)
After reading part of the book I ordered the second one too.
The endless series of disappearances could easily be boring, but they are not.
Not because of the drama involved; no sensational stories here. What these disappearences, often of young children, must mean to parents and family is entirely up to the reader's imagination. David Paulides deals with facts only. But what facts!
These books are all about patterns that slowly emerge from the many stories, patterns that can't be denied or belittled. There is something weird in those woods, mountains, behind those boulders that Paulides never names explicitly, but I never found better evidence for BigFoot (and what else?) in any BigFoot story in books on the subject. The parade of facts is of a high strangeness that leaves no room for normal explanations, although some of the disappearances were probably due to abduction or crime. That doesn't change the overall impression. People reading these books before they go on a trip in some wilderness area, will probably and hopefully keep an eye on their family. Something may be watching you from the shadows.

Im sorry to say we have all been had with this. Upon closer inspection David Paulides is a convicted con man who has edited official reports and fabricated the rest. He was never even a "Detective for over 20 years" as he likes to claim, he was a Traffic Police Officer for 16 years who resigned in disgrace after his arrest for Fraud and Theft. Sorry.
