Mains knows his stuff, that much is true. His autobiography portion of the book is there for two reasons. One is to establish his credibility. Done! Two, explaining why he became drawn to the twilight world of cold cases. Done again. In fact, looking back at that portion of the book, it was masterfully done to achieve these goals. "I see what you've done there Detective Mains - well played..."
The absolute best portion of this book is the actual cold cases themselves that he worked on. Kenneth Mains is a law enforcement equivalent of a surgeon of cold cases...he diagnoses the issues and, working with precision, dissects the cases with consummate skill and care. There is no flowery language here, these are written with the icy calculated care of a professional.
The case stories Mains has written about are beyond gripping, they draw you in and hold you tight as he puts you in his shoes in looking at them. These are not the kind of cases you see on Discovery ID, they are more of the gritty real-world cases. Not all of them have the kind of red ribbon tied to them at the end that you might expect with a perfect resolution. I was caught off guard by some of the resolutions, and as a reader, that's a good thing.
The true crime genre is in its infancy when it comes to the subgenre of cold cases. I highly recommend this wonderful book if you want to understand the cold case investigatory process or if you want to dive into some cases that are filled with twists, turns, and more than a few surprises. Pick up Unsolved No More, you won't be disappointed. - Blaine Pardoe New York Times Best Selling Author

The strongest aspect of this book is the methodology that Detective Mains refers to. He explains that very well in this book.
He comes across as a straight shooter and able to narrow down options in short order.
The only drawbacks I see in the book are editing. It wasn't terrible but it could benefit from some proof-reading.
Choice of cases. I understand that the cases that Kenneth Mains chose for the book are cases that stick with him and for good reason. I wish that he had included more that were resolved.
I echo what another reviewer wrote about being interested in any updates on the cases that were covered in the book.
