520    In April 2002, Janine Latus's youngest sister, Amy, wrote 
       a note and taped it to the inside of her desk drawer. 
       "Today Ron Ball and I are romantically involved," it read,
       "but I fear I have placed myself at risk in a variety of 
       ways. Based on his criminal past, writing this out just 
       seems like the smart thing to do. If I am missing or dead 
       this obviously has not protected me..."That same spring, 
       Janine Latus was struggling to leave her marriage-a 
       marriage to a handsome and successful man. A marriage 
       others emulated. A marriage in which she felt she could do
       nothing right and everything wrong. A marriage in which 
       she felt afraid, controlled, inadequate, and trapped.Ten 
       weeks later, Janine Latus had left her marriage. She was 
       on a business trip to the East Coast, savoring her freedom,
       attending a work conference, when she received a call from
       her sister Jane asking if she'd heard from Amy. 
       Immediately, Janine's blood ran cold. Amy was 
       missing.Helicopters went up and search dogs went out. 
       Coworkers and neighbors and family members plastered 
       missing posters with Amy's picture across the county. It 
       took more than two weeks to find Amy's body, wrapped in a 
       tarpaulin and buried at a building site. It took nearly 
       two years before her killer, her former boyfriend Ron Ball,
       was sentenced for her murder.Amy died in silent fear and 
       pain. Haunted by this, Janine Latus turned her 
       journalistic eye inward. How, she wondered, did two 
       seemingly well-adjusted, successful women end up in 
       strings of physically or emotionally abusive relationships
       with men? If I Am Missing or Dead is a heart-wrenching 
       journey of discovery as Janine Latus traces the roots of 
       her own-and her sister's-victimization with unflinching 
       candor. This beautifully written memoir will move readers 
       from the first to the last page. At once a confession, a 
       call to break the cycle of abuse, and a deeply felt love 
       letter to her baby sister, Amy Lynne Latus, If I Am 
       Missing or Dead is an unforgettable read.
