The Year We Disappeared

by Cylin Busby and John Busby

This Title No Longer Available - Please Do Not Order

A peaceful summer night is shattered by gunfire as an unseen assailant tries to murder police officer John Busby. Though horribly wounded, Busby survives. But the perpetrator remains at learge, meaning Busby and his family remain in danger.

In alternating chapters, John Busby and his daughter, Cylin, tell the harrowing true story of the year that followed - John from his perspective as parent, Cylin from the point of view of the nine-year-old child that she was. Together father and daughter craft an unforgettable picture of fear, of police corruption, and of a malignant thugh who no one dares to cross.

Reviews:
Praise for the print version of The Year We Disappeared:
"In alternating chapters, John and Cylin Busby tell the story of Johnís ordeal and the devastating impact on his family. Johnís laconic, just-the-facts-maíam style underscores the horror he was enduring, while Cylinís perspective drives home the fear and emotional misery the family suffered. The appalling physical injuries may deter the squeamish, but this riveting story will stay with readers, particularly its message that Johnís anger and desire for revenge were the hardest wounds to heal."
    — Booklist
 
"Cylin speaks with a voice of innocence shattered as she struggles to comprehend what happened to her family and why her friends have abandoned her. When the town balked at the continuing expense of providing personal protection and the constant fear brought the family to the breaking point, the Busbys went into hiding, seeking a return to some semblance of normalcy. The page-turner pace is frequently interrupted by awkwardly placed flashbacks to moments in John's police work, but, ultimately, this is a story of survival and triumph."
