Product description

Review

Wish You Were Here is an investigation intimate and mournful in nature, yet heroic in its level of forensic detail. By bearing witness to how a malefactor slips through the cracks of a haphazard, morally bankrupt system, infected by misogyny and cronyism—and how the legacy of that injustice connects to further calamity—the brave authors take back some of what is lost, bringing some measure of justice to an unending spiral of tragedy.” —Robert Kolker, author of Lost Girls and Hidden Valley Road
 
Wish You Were Here is at once a riveting mystery, an astute analysis of sexual violence, an investigation of a police force, and a study in grief and loss. On all levels it succeeds brilliantly. An engrossing, heartbreaking and necessary book.” —Don Gillmor, Governor General’s Literary Award̶ winning author of To the River 

Wish You Were Here is a heartbreaking story of the murder of Theresa Allore and a fierce, brave investigation . . . Infuriating, gripping and devastating, Wish You Were Here is also a heartfelt memorial to Theresa, and a testament to her family, who have never stopped seeking justice for her and many others who were stolen.” —Jessica McDiarmid, bestselling author of the RBC Taylor Prize finalist Highway of Tears 
 
“Unfolding as a hard-headed, finely detailed mystery, the story gradually leads us into a deeper pool of reflection on the alchemy of trauma, loss and memory, and its rippling, lifelong effects. In this shared labour of love, we taste the elusive vapour of ‘proof’ and ‘closure,’ the spiritual dangers of gazing too long into the abyss.” —James FitzGerald, Writers’ Trust Non-Fiction Prize̶winning author of What Disturbs Our Blood --This text refers to the paperback edition.
