There are few things more terrifying than a loved one disappearing without a trace, yet this unfortunate reality happens to thousands of people a year. People are kidnapped (sometimes by family members), the mentally ill disappear, we lose track of those traveling abroad, and sometimes people are snatched right out of their own home. Moore, a former police officer, offers anecdotes and personal experience outlining the different types of missing persons, typical police procedures, what family members should be aware of, and finally, the occasional success. Readers looking for a CSI-like collection of happy stories and dramatic denouements should look elsewhere, immediately. These stories are hard, often heartbreaking, and flow forth with the cynical wisdom of the bureaucrat. No doubt this is important information to possess, even vital, but it makes for a disheartening, depressing read. (May)
