This book was informative, but generally in the way the various parties interacted with one another (ie: the police, the DA's office and their own investigators, the Ramsey's people) and, as a result, accomplished nothing in any sort of resolution to this case. There is no real opinion from the author one way of the other, which is probably why he wasn't sued by the Ramsey's as others were; rather you are left to draw your own conclusions. There is little doubt the Ramsey's were involved in the death of their daughter. Which one of the three family members? We will never know. But an outside intruder(s)? You would have a better chance of opening your closet right now and seeing the Easter Bunny in there than intruders breaking into that house and killing that little girl.

As the 20th anniversary of this awful crime approaches, there have been numerous TV documentaries lately but each of them focussed on one or two areas only. However, in one of these specials, Schiller was interviewed and I immediately put my name on a list for this title and I am so glad that I did. First, it is beautifully written especially the style in which he presented it. He offers no opinion but as the evidence and witnesses are presented, I was stunned at what was left out of the investigation as it was shown to the public. Based on what I had seen on TV or read in the papers, I had formed my own opinion but reading this opened a whole new field I could not possibly have predicted. There are so many "oh wow" moments, I had a hard time putting it down. Brilliant book.
