Publisher's Summary

Number-one Amazon best-selling author Shaun Webb's sixth full-length work and second true-crime study, Lost Youth: A True Story, delves into a fateful October 1981 night in Waterford, Michigan, that rocked a quiet family's peace and shook an entire community to its deepest emotional depth.
Colette Molyneaux, a cute, healthy, and happy 13-year-old, paid the ultimate price in a criminal's horrible thirst for blood. Nancy Molyneaux, Colette's mother, also suffered enormously, enduring the violent act of rape on top of losing a dear daughter.
Who was responsible for these monstrous crimes? Why did such a bright and friendly young lady have to be extinguished so brutally? More to the point: What factors could have possibly contributed to the awful situation?
In his search for the truth, Shaun digs into the police investigation, forensic science, and interviews with the people who were closest to Colette along with others involved in the tragic case. Emotionally wrenching and infuriatingly sad, Lost Youth: A True Story seeks answers that are elusive in nature.
The story will soften the hardest heart and challenge one's deepest logic. You are the jury. Study all of the facts and see if you can come up with the answer that resists disclosure. The surprises this case exposes will perplex you like nothing you've ever heard or read. Colette speaks with us from the spiritual world. Can we take just a moment to listen?

well done though a sad story...

i found the book to be well written with a tremendous amount of research performed...narration was solid...a very sad story though...the author's commentary was sometimes helpful but i felt like he was sometimes attempting to rationalize the irrational and more often than not, the commentary was not helpful to me...

Writers should not preach to the reader .

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

There is definitely a story to be written here, but I felt that a lot of time was wasted in this book with the author's frequent side tracking into monologues; giving his opinion or a personal story that has no bearing in this story at all(such as his own youthful bad behavior). Also, unneeded and unwanted: paragraphs of the author instructing the reader not to judge or not to disrespect the dead, but then also reminding us that "those who live by the sword, die by it"(isn't that a judgement?). Authors of true crime should write their story from an investigator's point of view and not include their opinions or advice to the reader... just stick to the facts of the case and what you have uncovered in your research. The author must respect the reader of his work and allow the reader to form their own opinions and judgments if he is to gain fans of his work.


Could you see Lost Youth: A True Story being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No, not this book.


Any additional comments?

The addition of music and other sound effects in this audiobook was distracting and ,at times, made the book appear comical in the way the sound effects were suddenly added.
