Amy: My Search for Her Killer : Secrets & Suspects in the Unsolved Murder of Amy Mihaljevic
"Poignant and wonderfully well-written." -- Richard North Patterson, New York Times bestselling author of Silent Witness
"I fell in love with Amy Mihaljevic not long before her body was discovered lying facedown in an Ashland County wheat field. I fell for her the first time I saw that school photo TV stations flashed at the beginning of every newscast in the weeks following her kidnapping in the autumn of 1989--the photo with the side-saddle ponytail . . ."
So begins this strange and compelling memoir in which a young journalist investigates the cold case that has haunted him since childhood.
It's one of Northeast Ohio's most frustrating unsolved crimes. Ten-year-old Amy Mihaljevic (Muh-ha-luh-vick) disappeared from the comfortable Cleveland suburb of Bay Village. Thousands of volunteers, police officers, and FBI agents searched for the girl, who was tragically found dead a few months later. Her killer was never found.
Fifteen years later, journalist James Renner picks up the leads. Filled with mysterious riddles, incredible coincidences, and a cast of odd but very real characters, his investigation quickly becomes a riveting journey in search of the truth.
