This book opened my eyes: I simply had no idea the depth of the problem of missing individuals in the United States -- and we have many more resources at our disposal than have developing countries. This is an excellent handbook/ case study book detailing many kinds of disappearances -- famous and uncomfortably ordinary -- that happen every single day. The most useful takeaway concept: There are resources listing missing people, and there are resources listing unidentified bodies; there have been significant steps taken recently to bring these resurces together in a central place (namus.gov), so that information can be pooled. A chilling read and a book for which I hope I never ever have a need.
