    1 thought on “Missing Mom: A True Crime, True Family Story

    1. BROKENCORDI realize this was a story of sadness and tragic death, but I have to review honestly. It's a repetitive bit of family narrative. Although it's a shame that this happened I don't understand why a book was necessary.

    2. It seems wrong to say I enjoyed thisI did enjoy this. I couldn't put it down. I read this during thanksgiving prep and have to admit to hiding out all over the house to read instead of helping with the cooking. My bad. The writing was eloquent and articulate. The story engrossing. The family was described in such a way I feel as if I know them. I wish I could have participated in the search, handed out flyers, anything to ease this family's suffering. We are inundated every day by the media with [...]

    3. This just wasn't for me. I found it to be largely rambling and disjointed feelings of the author, with very little to do with the actual crime. So much so that I just started skimming at one point. And then there was the vaguely racist tone of the whole thing. Let's call Indian's "Red Men" and say how surprised he was that the perp (who happened to be a black woman) didn't have visible needle tracks or tattoos or wasn't "darker" or more "menacing" and he was truly surprised that she wasn't in a [...]

    4. As true crime, this book is actually rather poor. It could just as accurately be considered a memoir. Easily a third of it could have (and should have)been summarized or eliminated altogether. Virtually no research or information was disclosed about the perpetrator. Although the trial was covered thoroughlyenough, too much material irrelevant to the case caused the story to drag for long stretches. Kevin Pierce performed competently as expected. NOTE: I received a free copy of this audiobook in [...]

    5. BoringThis book took forever to read. I finally had to jump over pages because they were full. The best part was the ending , not because u r done but because u realize what he is trying to day. Don't bother to read. Very disappointed.

    6. Good book but in desperate need of an editor. Author did a good job conveying what he went through concerning what happened to his mother and its aftermath.

    7. Interesting & evidently heartfelt memoir, but not well edited.I've pretty much summed it up in my title. This was a book clearly written with love and the memory of pain, and understandably so, recounting the loss of a much-loved matriarch and the journey to finding both her and justice. Unfortunately, I don't get the impression that the author had an independent editor other than himself, as the text is poorly edited, not well put together, and tends to be repetitive. I could mark several w [...]

    8. Because this is true and because it unfolds while you watch a family grieve and search, it is a sad story. The book flows easily, making it a page turner. I enjoy crime shows but, this story touched my soul as I pondered senseless crime and felt for the victims, friends and those who work diligently to solve them. I applaud the author for being brave enough to tell his story.

    9. An 80-yr-old mother and grandmother suddenly disappears. Her heartbroken family searches and searches for her, with tragic results. The murderess is finally brought to justicerialGood, and heartbreaking story of one on family's loss of their beloved 80-yr-old mother, and their quest to locate her, which turns into a quest for justice for her murderer.

    10. Well writtenThis book is well written, easy to just keep on reading page after page. It makes you feel like part of the author's family. A sad story, but makes you feel strong because of the strength and character of the writer.

    11. A story about a family's 80 year old mother who goes missing suddenly. I found it extra interesting as it happened in areas of Michigan that I'm familiar with, having grown up near there.

    12. Pretty good book. I'm always a sucker for a book that really brings you into a family. Any family dynamic where the author places you right there in the room, invisible, with the fly on the wall to your leftah, this book didn't do that. Lol. It did have me concerned right alongside the author and his family for the well-being of "Ma," and at its peak when things started popping and more and more details were unfolding it was a nice ride. But things came to a conclusion relatively early in the bo [...]

    13. True murderThis book started out very slowly for me. In fact I almost didn't finish reading it. Considering this is Daniel Murphy's first book I am glad I read the whole book. After a out the first 50 pages this book got more interesting and better written all the time.My heart was broken for Daniel and his family when his mother went missing. This took over everyone's life for almost two years. His mother was a lucky woman to have such a living family. I will be looking forward to reading more [...]

    14. I feel a partI chose four because I feel like I went through the entire experience with the family. I'm so glad that MRS Murphy knew the Lord and prayed for her murderer. I like all the family and covet the love and support they received through out this horrible ordeal. Keep writing Daniel. God bless you.

    15. Interesting true crime taleI found it a interesting story and chose to read it because it was set in Michigan. I am a former mid-Michigan resident, now living in Florida. My only complaint is that the book contains too many typographic and grammatical errors. Spell check isn't foolproof. PLEASE employ a human and recheck this book!

    16. I enjoyed reading this book. I am glad they were able to find their mother and put her to rest. God bless them and Mrs Murphy. May she rest in peace.I would recommend this book to read. It was a gripping story and I couldn't put it down at times.

    17. Well written bookAllowing us, the reader to get to know the family. Details the slow court processes and the progress made. Dorothy Murphy, may you rest in peace.

    18. Very good true crime story chronicled by Daniel Murphy, one of the sons of missing mom Dorothy in Flint Michigan, a good read
