Summary
"Three Boys Missing tells the heart-breaking story of a brutal attack and murder in 1955. This tragedy shocked the nation and brought further dismay when the perpetrator escaped justice for more than 40 years. As one of the first law enforcement officers assigned to the case, Mr. James Jack has dedicated 50 years of his life to ensure that the significance of this story is not lost in history. This tragedy is about more than the lost lives of three boys. It forced us to acknowledge the undeniable existence of pedophilia in our society and raised our awareness of the horrible people who prey on our children." -- dusk jacket flap.
