Read an excerpt:
My Thoughts: This is a great read. I have always loved the True Crime genre but Ron Chepesiuk has taken it to a new level. The mystery surrounding Frank's childhood and his disappearance drew me in. Chepesiuk's causal writing style made me feel as if I was talking with a friend. While reading I developed my own theroies of what happened to Frank and I enjoyed reading Chepsiuk's. If you know a true crime lover pick this up for them.
