When Karen Foster was told that something had happened to her eighteen-year-old daughter, Bonnie Craig, she knew what it meant. The Alaska State Troopers investigating the scene ruled it a hiking accident, but for Karen, the pieces didn't add up. Bonnie would never have ditched class to go hiking. And she didn't drive--so how would she have reached McHugh Creek, miles out of town, in the first place? Armed with little more than her own conviction, Karen set out to find the truth behind her daughter's death. After a long series of false leads and dead ends, it seemed the case would forever go unsolved. Then, after twelve years of public campaigning, private despair, and increasingly tense dealings with the detectives working the case, Karen received an e-mail that would change everything; the system, at long last, had produced a match for the unknown DNA in the case--from a man in a jail all the way across the country. Here is the chilling tale of a mother's unflagging fight to track down the monster who stole her daughter's life--and the battle to ensure that he, and others like him, would no longer be able to evade justice. INCLUDES PHOTOS.
