    One thought on “Searching for Sandra, the Story Behind the Disappearance of Sandra Cantu”

    1. Really disturbing, but an important book for parents. This is the true story of the kidnapping and murder of a little girl by her female neighbor. (Not a spoiler, it's in the description!) A lot of us think this can't happen because we are careful, we know and trust our neighbors, our kids are smart But they can happen, and they do. This is a careful review and recitation of the case facts. There is a lot of shocking evidence. We hope our kids are a little safer because we looked behind a veil a [...]

    2. Very tragic and gave me the chills while I read it. It's not often you hear about women killing children. The author did a great job of describing the evil woman that took the life of an innocent child. My only complaint would be that the book was very repetitive. I often found myself thinking, "WaitI already know that."

    3. This book has interesting detail about the case, which seems hard to find anywhere. There was a comprehensive gag order by the police which no doubt contributed to this. I commend the author for taking it on, as tragic and troubling as it was.

    4. Sandra Cantu's death was such a tragedy. This book opens your eyes and reminds you that the "bad people" aren't always unkept, anti social people
