Hardback. This is the book the author was compelled to write so that its horror and tragedy would finally stop haunting her. As a newspaper reporter she had covered all kinds of stories about the lives and deaths of the people in Down East Maine, but this one was different. When Amy Cave was reported missing and later discovered murdered in 1984, it was difficult even for the police investigators and news reporters to keep their emotional distance. The controversial sexual character of the killer and the tragic nature of the entire story made that impossible. And besides, Amy Cave had been the author's friend. So, once the headlines had faded and the legal proceedings were ended, the author delved further into both the background and the aftermath of the once highly publicised crime. She revisits the investigation, the arrest, and the trial in fascinating detail, taking us behind the scenes and into the minds of the people whose job it was to see impartial justice done. She looks beyond the sensationalism to create an honest, disturbing, yet fundamentally compassionate story of how people's lives - including her own - were changed on the day Amy Cave disappeared. 260pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. in Vg. dw. which has a small 'peel' to lower edge of back cover.
