vanishedGone–without a trace… In this book Vanished by Elizabeth Macleod, curious readers will find six compelling stories about some of the world’s most bewildering disappearances. Do you know about the Alcatraz prison break, where three dangerous convicts engineered a daring escape? Did they live to see freedom, or did they perish in the icy waters surrounding the prison? And will anyone ever know what happened to the captain and crew of the SS Mary Celeste? In 1872, it set out from New York for Genoa in Italy, but everyone on board disappeared for no apparent reason.

This irresistible combination of suspense and history also serves as an introduction to the advances in technology that may help discover what really happened in each unsolved mystery, such as the disappearance of the Malaysia Airlines flight 370 last year. (001.94 MAC)
