In June of 1992, two teenage girls who have just graduated from high school, Suzie Streeter and Stacy McCall went to Suzie’s house to spend the night after a really long day of celebration and parties. They were looking forward to moving to the next stage of their life. Suzie’s mother, Sherrill Levitt was at the house as well. All three of them mysteriously vanished in the middle of the night and they have never been seen again.
On June 7, 1992, Sherrill Levitt, Stacy McCall, and Suzie Streeter vanished. They left behind no evidence of where they went or who abducted them. “The Disappearance of the Springfield Three” by Ana Benson tries to tell the tale.
Benson does not begin well. Benson riddles this book with grammatical inaccuracies, and these errors makes one have to double-down with their focus while reading it. Most of the time, I can overlook the odd error or two, but it lessened my enjoyment. Despite this, Benson’s novel is a very quick read. I finished the book in about fifteen minutes: between getting my daughter off to school and getting ready to go back to sleep.
If you had any remote interest in the Springfield Three, you will find nothing new in this novel. It is a basic reporting on the events that surrounded the women, their disappearance, and a run-down on the suspects. I would only recommend it to those who have a new interest in the case.
