"I am a father who has no idea what has happened to his child. The questions run through my mind all day long. Is she dead? Is she being held captive somewhere? Is she crying out for me?" These are the words of Dave Holloway, father of Natalee Holloway, whose disappearance in Aruba sparked a media frenzy and an international scandal. This book is the story of his search, the most complete account of Natalee Holloway's disappearance in Aruba. Continuing his investigation to this very day, Holloway discloses behind-the-scenes details of the investigation, new revelations about the corruption of the Aruban law enforcement, and the countless trails leading to possible rape, murder, and even sexual slavery. Holloway relates the horror of personally searching through crack houses and trash dumps for Natalee--working alone, with authorities, even with psychics--while enduring the stonewalling of Aruban officials.--From publisher description.… (mere)

This is a tough book to review. I definitely feel for the Holloway family and I can only imagine what years of searching for a missing family must feel like. That being said, I'm not sure Mr. Holloway did himself many favors in this book. There was a bit of a racist undertone to some of his remarks that was pervasive and consistent and it made it difficult to offer him the amount of empathy I think he deserves. And that feels like a terribly unfair criticism given the tragedy the family has faced, but...it's there and I think worth commenting on.

I hope the family finds peace at some point. ( )

I've been to Aruba 3 times, including 2005. I was there just 2 weeks after she disappeared. I now go to the University of Alabama, where she was slated to go to college and know people who knew Natalee. Unfortunately, this situation isn't unique; it happens all over the world every day of the year. Natalee's parents (via the media) made a major ordeal out of the situation. This book is nothing more than propaganda. I thought I'd read it to get their side of the story, but it's still the same b.s. ( )
