Book Review: Boy Missing

Title: Boy Missing: The Search for Kyron Horman

Author: Rebecca Morris

Narrator: Lee Ann Howlett



It’s one of the most shocking unsolved missing-child cases in the world. Where is Kyron Horman? Why hasn’t the woman who police suspect is responsible for his 2010 disappearance – Kyron’s stepmother – been charged? That the seven-year-old disappeared from his grade school got the attention of parents around the world. The twists of the case – adultery, sexting, murder-for-hire – keep the story in the media spotlight. New York Times best-selling author Rebecca Morris tells the minute-by-minute, day-by-day story of the long investigation, the search for Kyron, and his family’s heartache. Based on years of research and interviews with Kyron’s family, Boy Missing also examines what recourse families have as they wait for a loved one to be found and challenges a common assumption in no-body cases: that prosecutors must wait until there is a confession or remains are found. No-body cases can be prosecuted successfully. 

Author Jeff Guinn (MansonThe Road to Jonestown) calls Boy Missing “an important book and one readers will never forget”.

My Review

4/5 Stars

Plenty of research and time went into the creation of this book, obvious by the quality of every chapter.

The search for Kyron Horman has spanned over ten years. Ten years and the parents still have no answers. I can’t imagine going through something like this. This book carefully covers all the aspects of the Kyron Horman case, including other cases that had an impact such as the Casey Anthony trial.

Narration fit the book.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
