Journalist and author Barry Cummins has closely followed the unsolved cases of Ireland’s vanished women and children for decades. In this new edition of his bestselling book on the subject, he provides updates on the cases that have by turns fascinated, puzzled and horrified the Irish public.
Fully updated and revised, including two new chapters, Missing looks at the leads and developments of Ireland’s most famous missing persons cases – among them Annie McCarrick, Mary Boyle, Jo Jo Dullard, and Fiona Pender – and considers if a serial killer is responsible for some of the cases of women who disappeared in Ireland in the 1990s. With the assistance of the gardaí and the families concerned, Missing is a comprehensive and shocking account of 30 years of investigations into those who have been abducted, murdered or simply vanished in Ireland.
