Vanished "If I'm ever late for work, call the police!"--that's what Albuquerque, New Mexico bank teller Girly Chew told her boss.

Just finished this book and for the life of me I do not understand the raving reviews on amazon. What did I miss? Well one thing I missed was a good story. This book was constantly jumping from time to time which made it even more confusing, did not like the writing at all and this author had a very interesting story to work with but in my eyes missed the boat. I had trouble at the start of the book. Nearly quit. Then it got a bit better but that did not take long, it went downhill again real qu ...more

I've known about the Girly Chew Hossencofft murder a long time ago, watched documentaries and other tv shows about this case, but I never knew the entire story. How can a small, uneducated man, Armando Chavez, turn himself into Dr. Hossencofft? How can he have enough influence on an intelligent woman, Linda Henning, to help him murder his ex-wife? Chavez was a con man, self appointed doctor, man of many talents. Linda Henning believed that they were part of an alien "conspiracy", she followed Ch ...more

Why was the actual fact of the couple's son's apparent disposal never clarified?

This book seems to be nothing more than a long and repetitive description of the behaviors of an egotistical con man. I found that the author's failures in following up on certain of his own personal comments to be disappointing. For example, He repeatedly said that the son's head had been removed. When, where, and by WHOM ? He states repeatedly that this person or another person knows exactly what happened to Girly

As listening to this story I was surprised to realize I had heard it before. I didn't already own the book. I had just purchased it on 9/12. I had heard the basic layout of this case in CSI Las Vagas, Season 7.

*** Spoiler ***

Basically you have this con-man that is passing himself off as a doctor. He is part of a group that believes in a reptilian society wherein there are people who are really a hybrid of human and alien reptilian people. Anyway, this guy convinces women within the group to help

Very Informative

I read this book in a day. At times it jumped around and was hard to follow but over all it was an easy read. My prayer is that someday Girly will finally be put to rest.
This book was well-written and informative. The entire scenario is very sad, but it is an interesting look into the mind of a psychopath.
Bizarre does not even begin to describe this story. On September 10, 1999 Girly Chew did not show up for work. Her boss knew something was very wrong and who might have something to do with her disappearance, her soon to be ex husband.
The story of Girly Chew has been seen on dateline and Court TV as well as Her estranged husband Diazien Hossencofft his girlfriend Linda Henning.
Book does draw you in. It says on the back of the book 16 pages of shocking photos. Ok maybe one shocking photo and th

True Crime: Hossencraft/Amado is a charasmatic scammer. There are so many involved, then add a youth serum, reptilian aliens, and murder. The result isa very confusing story.

I read this book awhile back, it is one of my favorites. It's well written and got me hooked and could not put it down until I finished reading it. Although the story is true, for a while I thought I was reading a story from the "X Files" tv series. D. Hosencoft is a mysteriously creepy guy. Mark Horner did excellent work writing about him.

Reads like a Dateline. Very sensational. There are really some horribly twisted people out there.
