It is intriguing too how many thankfully didn't get away with the deed and were convicted regardless of the actual body having been located or not. It's good they'll do that. As it stands there were still too many who got away with it !! I like the way each story was laid out with the disappearance date and then the aftermath of each in separate chapters. The only case I'd heard of here in the UK was the Stacy Peterson one..........what a tragic family she was from. Just so sad all round for them.
I had to marvel at the sheer stupidity (or arrogance, maybe) of some of the killers. One who was caught while on the run pinching a sandwich when in his car he had $37000 cash, another who impersonated his wife via text but signing off Pixy misspelling her nickname of Pixie and another who retained the receipt for a tarpaulin he wrapped a body in from a store in a state he denied being in !!
Something I noticed I often wonder at with the USA is one case where the "bride" was only 15 when she was married. I find it staggering that's legal over there !!
I don't think I'd bother with more compiled by this author, though-the editing is pretty sloppy. I see it's published under the RJ Parker publishing umbrella and I tried one of his before and it was an utter mess. This wasn't as bad as that was but still too slapdash for me to consider bothering with any more.Read more ›
This author's fascination with missing persons and cold crime cases, has enabled her to write this book which showcases the true stories of 30 wives who have gone missing and whose bodies have never been found. He focuses on the efforts of the families of these missing people to find their loved ones and makes a plea for any information that someone might have, which could help in the investigation of these cases.
Some of the details of the murders are quite gruesome and my heart goes out to all the families mentioned in this book. I hope that someday they will get the answers they seek.
This was a very engaging book to read. I found it absolutely difficult to put this book down.. A `must read' for anyone interested in crime stories.
It's astonishing just how many victims are covered throughout the course of this book. However, at the same time you get the feeling that what is covered here barely scratches the surface.
The book is very well written and covers each case study with several sections. There is a background on the life and situation of the couples, the circumstances surrounding the "disappearances" and finally the aftermath, showing what happened to the ex-husbands and result of any criminal investigation and trial. The author does a fantastic job of covering the situation in a factual and intriguing way. However, it incredibly sad to note that because bodies have never been found in these cases there are family members that are unable to grieve and move on. There are references within the book about who to contact if you do have information, but I fear that it is unlikely that any of these missing wives will ever be found.
Throughout the book there are stories of real situations that hit close to home. It is of course a desperate tragedy for the family members of these missing wives but as a documentary-style book, it is intriguing throughout and has added to my my desire to discover more about these true crimes.
