I lived in Urbandale, IA when Johnny Gosch went missing. He was about 2 years older than me. The reading brought up many interesting points which to be aware. It is always important to question what is going on around you and not assume the government, company, another person is working for the better good. I tried to read this without judging the author, to look at her as an individual with the normal human faults of character.

Many important pieces of information available are not written by s

This is an amazing story!

Johnny was kidnapped from the streets of Iowa during his morning paper route. Since his disappearance his mother and the author of this book has been searching for him. Noreen also goes beyond her son's case and discusses other children being abducted by strangers. The book is not very well edited but I was willing to overlook it because I was so interested in the book. Noreen suspects that her son's disappearance has something to do with people in positions of power, l

This book is essential reading for anyone researching mind control and pedo rings. The book appears to be suppressed ($124 used, $446 (!!) new on Amazon), and for good reason. Gosch's book is a powerful and damning indictment of the institutions that we're led to believe are there to help people like Noreen Gosch, but who, more often than not, worked to hinder Noreen's efforts and aid in the coverup of what happened to Johnny Gosch. The Gosch story (and its participants) overlaps with The Frankl ...more

As another pointed out, this book had great need for better proofing and editing, but that is not the point of a book like this. His mother asks the right questions here; it's just too bad she didn't get more help finding answers.

I'm putting this under both 'nonfiction' and 'occult-nonfiction' because she gets awfully conspiracy-theory heavy about... a third of the way into the book. This is not why I gave it a low rating, though, I mostly gave it a low rating because the writing is absolutely terrible. And I wasn't expecting, looking at the cover, a literary masterpiece, but I was expecting a basic knowledge of English grammar. I did not get a basic knowledge of the English grammar.

Interesting in a cult classic kin

The typo's and grammatical errors are really hard to get beyond but the book is astonishing. It's heartbreaking what happened to Johnny Gosch and how his mother was treated.

Saddest book ever. Poor Noreen, how did she ever stand it. It is just a nightmare.
