More than a true crime book this is a true whodunit A real life mystery investigated by a real private detective William Dear wrote this book no co author is listed about his experiences in 1979 trying to find a troubled 16 year old genius missing from his dormitory at Michigan State University William Dear is a hugely successful private investigator based in Dallas whose success allows him to hire several operatives He is an airplane owner who still can charter Lear jets as necessary The man who wears three piece Pierre Cardin suits and eel skin boots He is also one of the very best private investigators in the nationJames Dallas Egbert III a gay 16 year old Dungeons and Dragons fanatic was enough of a genius to get into Michigan State at his age who found himself outside of every group he wanted to join He was to paraphrase an Outlaws song “lonesome and lonely and far from his home” Things weren’t great at home either His mother allegedly pressured him in many ways On August 15 1979 he left the cafeteria of his dorm and vanished Odd clues had been left behind by Dallasor someone else His parents hired William Dear As part of the investigation Mr Dear recorded every conversation it was possible to record These recordings are transcribed in detail in the text This provides verisimilitude but reads like just what they are long transcripts Since Dallas was a Dungeons and Dragons player and clues suggested the game figured in his disappearance Mr Dear contacts a dungeon master and plays a complete game of D D The game is recorded in detail and replayed step by step and move by move This reads like just what it is a long transcript of a D D game Remember however that in 1979 D D was nowhere as huge as it would eventually become and most readers were probably unfamiliar with the role playing gameIn fact the first half of the book could use a nice tight edit Then something really cool happens at page 195 in the first Ballantine Books edition November 1985 the suspense begins to build The investigators search eight miles of eerie steam tunnels under the university campus More clues are found Earlier a woman in a red Chevy Vega is seen “stalking” Mr Dear Now threatening calls are received from an anonymous voice who demands Dear and his investigators leave the state of Michigan and then they will be told where to find Dallas Suspense mounts and people become involved a gay PI from New York arrives to assist as does a nineteen year old D D expert from California Everything rushes headlong toward an almost bizarre climax in an unexpected locale And the book’s still not done for there’s a nasty sting in its tailThis case received nationwide press back in the day and I was vaguely aware of it Only now I picked up this book and read it for the first time Nothing was spoiled by my fuzzy memory I can’t say I loved this book can’t give it four stars but I can tell you the final 138 pages are sometimes excruciatingly suspenseful and ran me through a gamut of emotions I say that’s pretty cool

M society he came to understand that there could be no single explanation for the disappearance of James Dallas Egbert II. William Dear relates the story of his search for James Dallas Egbert III a young genius and avid Dungeons and Dragons player who mysteriously disappeared from the University of Michigan in 1979 in this gripping memoir Like in any good detective novel Dear only reveals the clues to his mystery as he came upon them leaving the reader to form their own hypotheses as they go along Along the way he also paints the portrait of a very troubled and misunderstood youth for whom one can only feel sympathy This book was fascinating and it kept me on the edge of my seat as I read about Dear's various adventures working on the clues in the hopes that I might solve the mystery before he gave me all the answers My only complaint is that at times the book read too much like a typical detective novel with Dear painting himself as the unlikely hero with all of his gut hunches and gadgets All in all it was a good read though
