*One of the best nonfiction crime books of 2022 (so far)*

"An intriguing . . . excavation of an unsolved crime."
-- Kirkus Reviews

"Exquisite details help to make Ripple a captivating true crime account of a murder..."
--Foreword Reviews

"Cosgrove masterfully weaves together the family's fabric and spends enough time with each of them to capture their individual characters, drawing the reader into their search for Frank. His conversational tone makes this an easy read for all, especially true crime lovers."

"Thoroughly riveting and ultimately redeeming examination of an American mystery. Like a great profiler, Cosgrove reveals both the darkness and light in his subjects."
--John Douglas, FBI criminal profiling pioneer and co-author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Mindhunter

"Both a true-life murder mystery and a family saga, Ripple is, at the same time, a lament for the universal human condition. Through sensitive prose and self-revealing introspection, Jim Cosgrove chronicles his decades-long quest to uncover the truth of a family friend's disappearance and death and, in the process, has produced a moving and revealing chronicle of the challenge in truly knowing what is in another person's heart."
--Mark Olshaker, documentary filmmaker, novelist and co-author of Mindhunter and The Killer's Shadow
