About the Author

Just because someone is "normal" doesn't mean that bad things can't happen to them. The "Victim's Rights" groups (domestic abuse etc) are going to fight it. Why? Because THEY want to be able to "disappear" and not have to worry about someone reporting them as "missing" I say hog-wash!!! 90% of abused spouses aren't the sharpest knife in the drawer to begin with. They believe the lies that their abuser fills their head with. They're weak people...NOT self starters or self thinkers. When one of them wants to "disappear" then THEY should be required to place their name on a "Hot Sheet" for abused people. Anytime there's something that will HELP people...there will ALWAYS be those who will use it for HURTING people. The cops, in their investigations would find that there have been DV calls made with the missing person's name attached to it. At that point, they could (should) arrest the abusing party...keeping him/her incarcerated for the minimum of 72 hours while the "missing" person goes and takes whatever they need from the residence. If they take more than is legally theirs, then the abuser can file a claim in court. Hey, they shouldn't have been abusing ANYONE to begin with!!! Crime always has its drawbacks! I'd be SUPER PISSED OFF if my husband didn't show up as usual and the cops refused to listen and take a "missing" report!!! These outdated laws MUST GO!!! You'll notice however, that whenever an "important" person is reported missing that it's on the news immediately and a search is started. Someone like Ted Kennedy failing to show up at a doctor's appointment and then for dinner" would start a NATIONAL search. Why are any of the rest of us any less important???

Like the other two previous reviews I was drawn to this site in hopes of purchasing this book which seems very interesting and by doing so would help this couple out. The other reviewers seem to have assumed that Mr. Rider wrote the above editorial reviews. But after reading it carefully it is clear to me that he did not write the section titled "About The Author". The following sentence led me to realize this: "I'd be SUPER PISSED OFF if my husband didn't show up as usual and the cops refused to listen and take a "missing" report". It was a female who wrote this since the reference was to "my husband" as opposed to "my wife". I do agree that what was said about abuse victims was deragatory and whoever wrote it was certainly unprofessional but that will not change my mind about helping this couple. I plan on buying the book as well as their other book titled "Missing Without a Trace : 8 Days of Horror".

Why did they have to write a book? They should have received a huge settlement from King County instead! Unbelievable treatment from the moronic dispatchers. Why is it that so many dispatchers are just trying to get rid of callers rather than actually help them with whatever they are calling about? The Riders really should sue this LE agency for everything they can get. They nearly killed a woman because of their "policies" about missing people & the subjective handling by dispatchers of missing persons reports.
