'Thank God we have found her.' Sara Payne's words as she announced that the body of her daughter - snatched and murdered by paedophile, Roy Whiting - had finally been found. In this memoir, Sara tells her personal story. She describes the numbness as she waited for seventeen days, desperate to hear news of her missing daughter, and the terrible moment when her worst fears became reality. She explains how her family tried to cope with their grief and the stress placed upon them by the media campaign for Sarah's Law. As the family tried to rebuild their lives in the aftermath of tragedy, they found that each reminded the other of the child they had lost. Guilt and anger pushed Sarah's marriage into a spiral of alcohol abuse and violence. This is the ultimate story of a family's journey through hell, but Sara's strength is an inspiration as, despite everything, she and her family slowly found a way to go on.
Oldsmill, the town's head honcho, is a white tiger. Karup, the chief of police, is a white bear. Huk, Karup's henchman, a white fox. Along with the other animals of immaculate pelt, they form the WASP association (W for White, AS for Anglo-Saxon, P for Protestant). All other town residents, from the black magpie to the reddish-brown fox to the tabby cat, are nothing but trash. And if the police aren't able to enforce white law, the wide-reaching arms of the ruthless Arctic Nation party, hooded and decked out in white robes, will soon put things in order. And they've got all the ropes and burning crosses they need. In this unwelcoming environment, Blacksad, a private detective, is investigating the disappearance of a child of color, Kyle. Dinah, Kyle's mother, had a job as Karup's housemaid, and some say she was getting pretty friendly with Oldsmill's son. It doesn't take Blacksad long to get his claws right into the vipers' nest, and he's as quick to lash out as any of them...
