This book is a non-fiction "missing person" investigation which was conducted by Dave Holloway in the year following the bizarre disappearance of his teenage daughter, Natalee, who, at the time, was vacationing with schoolmates on the island paradise of Aruba.

Natalee was last seen by her classmates @1:30 am on May 30, 2005. Since that time there has been no concrete evidence brought forward to help Holloway locate the whereabouts of his daughter.

This comprehensive book not only gives the curios reader a good idea of all the grief that Holloway has experienced - But it also tells of all the many obstacles and false leads that he has come up against in his desperate search for Natalee.

*Note* - As of 2012 - Natalee (though still missing) has been declared officially dead.
