    1. Greg Aunapu Susan Billig Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Without a Trace: The Disappearance of Amy Billig -- A Mother's Search for Justice book, this is one of the most wanted Greg Aunapu Susan Billig author readers around the world.

    2. A compelling and engaging albeit disturbing true crime novel, Without A Trace is chilling, interesting and very well detailed.

    3. This was a great true crime book - very riveting and fast paced through the whole book. The partial title of the book A Mother's Search for Justice is exactly what this mother went through to find the answers to her daughter's disappearance. This mother went into the depths of outlaw biker gangs to try and find out what happened to her daughter. It has been a long time since I read a true crime book that kept me wanting to read it to the end. This is definitely a five star read!

    4. The Dark Side Of HumanityI gave this book a 5 star rating because it truly drew you into the turmoil and terror that that this mother lived through in her pursuit of answers to her daughter's disappearance. I wonder if any of us readers could go on year after year as Sue Billig did? You learn how really cruel people are through crank calls from strangers and one being a federal employee. Bikers trying to extort money for leads that were fabricated. The horrible illness that befell both husband a [...]

    5. The story of the unsuccessful search for Amy Billig, a teenager who disappeared in 1974. A good, solid and painstakingly detailed (as well as very compassionate) retelling of the story, with cooperation from Amy's mother Susan. The desperate efforts Susan—who has recently died—made to find her only daughter are heartrending. The author himself knew Amy slightly when he was a child. Although the real story has no conclusion, given that Amy is still missing, Aunapu is able to wrap up the book [...]

    6. This story of a mother looking for her missing daughter is sometimes interesting but mostly just frustrating and sad. The only satisfying parts are the aspects of the case that are ultimately resolved (spoiler alert): a creepy anonymous caller who torments the mother turns out to be a customs officer, an extortion attempt made by a couple of idiotic teens, etc. Be prepared for lots of blind alleys and dead ends.

    7. Ill written Banal StoryWhat a waste of time this was. The unsolved mystery remains unsolved after the victim's Mom takes us on a series of moronic dead ends. The interesting parts of this would have made a boring magazine article. A worthless piece of poorly written trash which wasted my time. The author should pay *me* for making me sit through this garbage.

    8. This is a very sad and touching story of a mother's search for her daughter, who vanished many years ago and was never seen again. I have read it several times and also shared it with my mother. It is very touching and inspirational, it reminds you that a mother's love truly knows no bounds.If you enjoy reading true crime, I highly recommend this one.

    9. very quick read, and very puzzling story. I wish there was always a concrete answer to these kind of mysteries.

    10. As a child, my favorite show was "Unsolved Mysteries." I liked to scare myself, and the tales told by a gravely-voiced Robert Stack certainly fit the bill, far more than even "Tales from the Crypt." While most of the stories have been lost from my memory as I came into young adulthood, one story always stayed with me: that of Amy Billig, apparently kidnapped from the comfort of her own home, by a rove biker gang. Amy's case wasn't even featured on "Unsolved Mysteries" until over a decade after s [...]

    11. For some reason, reading this massively put the impact of missing people right into my heart. I read a lot about unsolved mysteries and disappearances, and Amy Billig's name had met with my eyes a few times but due to the length of her disappearance (she was last seen in 1974) I had her figured for long gone. I don't think I'm wrong and I don't think she was alive for much more of 1974. Sue Billig's devotion to her daughter even when everyone, even police officers and lawyers, were telling her t [...]

    12. A Mother's AgonyThe straightforward telling of a mom's search for her teenage daughter has Sue Billig crisscrossing the country and traveling to England. Amy, age 17, vanished on her way to her father's gallery in Coconut Grove, Florida. For decades, her parents refused to call off the search. For much of that time, a stranger called frequently at all hours, claiming to have knowledge of Amy Billig's whereabouts. He furnished details about the girl that were known only by those very close to her [...]

    13. Great read!Very good book. I couldn't stop reading and praying and hoping Amy was found. Would recommend this book to others. It's one of those books you can't stop reading until you know what happened.

    14. sad story about missing Amy Billig and all of the efforts her parents went through to find out what happened to her.

    15. The case of Amy Billig, a seventeen-year-old hitchhiker from Coconut Grove who went missing in the '70s, has been on my mind since the '80s, when I moved to Florida and repeatedly saw the mother in news items. I never forgot the case, even Googling it from time to time to see if there was any new information. The experience of reading this book answered some of my questions, although it's quite chilling and disturbing. I really felt for the mother and the rest of Amy's family during this horribl [...]

    16. Amy ,billingIt was OK although the ending wasnt loving the ending .every story doesn't have a happy ending especially in real life.

    17. Far too much information and detail made this laborious to read. Broke my heart to think what this family suffered and endured and to then read online that Amy's mother died in her 80's with the mystery never resolved. I related so closely to Amy's youthful naivete; thinking that she would perceive if a person picking her up hitchhiking was harmful that she would perceive their bad karma; thinking that if she treated people well that she in turn would be well treated. An age-old story, but very [...]

    18. Astonishing story. From the first page, Aunapu's writing is solid and powerful. The force of feeling in this book takes your breath away with every movement: Amy Billig's devastating disappearance, her family's unrelenting torment, Sue Billig's supernatural strength, baffling characters, detestable evils.The life of this book, however, is hope. Aunapu truly allows the reader to inhabit Sue Billig's shining steel spirit, which -- in a mystically beautiful way -- let's you experience a true love's [...]

    19. HEARTBREAKING I could not put this book down. This story will literally break your heart. It will make you so angry that you'll be fuming. It will make you scratch your head and wonder how people can be so cruel to other people. It will tell you the story of a mother's undying, unconditional love for her daughter, her husband and her son. It will introduce you to one of the bravest, strongest, kindest women you'll ever meet. It will make you uncomfortable, and open your eyes to the biker culture [...]

    20. This book is a riveting story that would have been a 5 star if it weren't for the fact that Aunapu felt the need to drag this story on and on and on and on and on and on and on. Does that seem a bit harsh? Wait until you've read this book and instead of reading what's happening next you are getting erroneous details like what fabric the chair is made out of, or the amount of lighting that is haloing the judge in the court room. I mean seriously? Do I care? No! This story had so much to offer but [...]

    21. An outstanding woman and motherAmy Billig could not have wished for a more loyal and courageous mother than the one she was blessed with . Sue and Ned could not have tried harder to locate their missing daughter , often putting themselves at risk and enduring financial hardship. The actions of Hank Blair were vile and disturbing and I feel he didn't deserve the continued support of his family. There are various theories as to what happened to Amy but personally I am very suspicious of Hank Blair [...]

    22. Good StoryAmy and Sue's stories are told from a very compassionate point of view. Easy to read. Somehow Amy's death was easier to read about at the end because of all that went on before with Sue. I don't care for pushy women but who knows how any of us would react in Sue's situation. The only issue that really bothered me was the seeming lack of editing. So many misspelled words and sentences that were cut off were very annoying and off-putting. But I have found this problem in a lot of e-books [...]

    23. When a teen disappears today a search is underway right awayis was not the case in 1974. Then, a missing teen was considered a runaway, and by the time investigative work began, it was often too late. The disappearance of Amy Billig is one of those cold cases, and her mother's never ending search heartbreaking. As I read this book, I thought of Natalie Holloway. The girls were both the same age, the investigations were equally frustrating, the bodies were never found, and both mothers amazingly [...]

    24. What a sad book this is. When I picked this book to read (Based on the raving reviews on amazon) I did not know what it was about. Yes someone was missing. Then I started reading and felt so sorry for Susan. I think this is one of the saddest books I've ever read. Here I was thinking, please find her now.After I've read it I still had a lot of questions and could not forget the characters. For me that means it is a good book. That even when you've read it you still keep thinking about it.

    25. Fairly interesting account of a mother's search for her 17 year old daughter, who disappeared without a trace. I actually remember this story being profiled on "Unsolved Mysteries" when I was a kid. This book mainly focuses on the mother's experience trying to find her daughter. It's a strange story but the writing is not as fast paced as I might have expected. Overall, this is a good pick if you're a true crime fan.

    26. Frustrating!Let it be clear. This is the story of an UNSOLVED mystery. Much of the narration is overly detailed and hard to follow. The biker characters become confusing given that they are referred to by given names and biker names. A reference list of characters would have been very helpful. I gave the book three stars because the story of Sue Billig's search for her daughter is one of tenacity and courage. She is inspiring.

    27. A pageturner for fans of true crime mysteriesThe authors, one being the tragic mother of an abducted teen in 1974, perfectly convey every parent's nightmare from the moment her child doesn't arrive home through a twenty-year tireless search through America's rarely seen underbelly of society. Sue Billig is every mother, hopelessly and tirelessly committed to the unending search for her little girl. Heartbreaking.

    28. Great book!I would recommend this book anyone that likes to read true stories.I have seen Amy's story on different crime showsbut by reading this book I learned alot of things that were left out I of the stories on TV. It's so sad to think that a parent would have to go through life not knowing where their child was a parent myself, my heart breaks for Amy's parents + family. Though I'm sure they "will" all be reunited one day!!!!
