Without sacrificing this book with a review laced with emotions and spoilers, I am compelled to say that I will never travel to Aruba, nor, if I have anything to do with the decision, will anyone I care about.
Should we boycott Aruba? No. Rather, we should wipe the predators of women and the corrupt polititians and so-called law enforcement officials who protect them off the face of the planet. This includes the corrupt officials on the small island of Aruba, and MUST also, perhaps more importantly, include those covering up the drug and sex trades in Holland.
This story isn't about one missing high school graduate and the family desparate to find her. This is a HUGE issue about thousands of missing persons and the sex-slave business. This book is the flashlight that shines on a dark and sinister condition that continues to plague.
Especially intriguing in Dave Holloway's book is the Appendix/Shango's Riddle. In the end, it is left to the readers and bloggers to decide if Natalie Holloway is still alive. The book took me from what I believed to be the truth, and led me to an unsettling place of a new opinion. I am haunted by the possibilities.
