People disappear without a trace more frequently than is commonly supposed, Jon Billman reveals here, and we know less about it than we think. Through the story of Jacob Gray's disappearance in Olympic National Park, and of his father Randy Gray, who left his life behind to search for him, Billman shows what happens when someone goes missing. This unconventional true crime tale introduces eccentric bloodhound-handler Duff and R.C., his purebred; Michael Neiger, a self-described "bushman" obsessed with missing persons; and former California detective David Paulides, who is also one of the world's foremost Bigfoot researchers.
"A compassionate, sympathetic, and haunting book sure to make you think twice before stepping out into the wilderness alone."—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
