There is an invisible enemy hunting our teens. An enemy so cunning he is almost completely undetectable, and once he sets out in pursuit of his target, no teen can escape him. How do you protect yourself or your family from an enemy you don't even know exists? Even those who do know about this threat don't know how to protect themselves or their family, so they do nothing.
This isn't something we can keep ignoring. Sexual exploitation of teens is becoming a worldwide plague silently poisoning society - an invisible crime with victims who are not viewed as victims at all. The victims themselves often don't even realize they are victims.
We live our lives thinking we've done everything we can to protect our children from sexual predators, but remain foolishly unaware of the threat that still surrounds us when they grow into teenagers. The most dangerous sexual predators never let you see them coming or let you know that they were even there...and all of your efforts will be lost, as well as your teens, and you won't even realize until it's too late.
Detecting Deceit is a self-help book everyone needs to listen to because this advice is born of real life experience. Every parent, teen, grandparent, brother or sister, friend, caregiver, and educator needs to hear this. Everyone, including you, is at risk of being fooled by a predator just as skilled at deception as professional con artists.

Yes. It had so much information that is so valuable to parents raising kids and wanting to protect them from the horrible predators that are out there and that are never suspected.
This book was well researched and well written. I enjoyed hearing from both perspectives, the mother and the father. How heart wrenching to know that it is based on a true story, but I'm so glad the parents were able to use their grief and their heartache to help other people. I will recommend this book to all parents, for I fear that grooming is only getting more and more prevalent in our society and unfortunately, too many people don't take it seriously.
A book reading, artistic geek who loves movies, vampires and all things spooky.
I personally prefer to read at my own pace but I liked that I could put my headphones in and listen as I did daily activities
I liked that the famiky was willing to come forward and share the experience and knowledge they had gained to hopefully keep another family from going threw it.
I think hearing it allowed makes it more real. Especially a book like this. It makes what the family endured more personal.
How many times they thought they had helped and got their daughter back only to have her yanked away again
If you have children you need to listen to this book. There was so much about grooming, and I never knew it existed!!!!! Please take the time to inform yourself. Very well written and combines this family's heartbreaking experience with the knowledge they gained in researching grooming.
This is a book I needed to read forty years ago.
I am hoping that this will start a trend of similar books; there is nothing out there like this today.
Yes, and then backed it up to listen again.
This absolutely is useful for people who don't have modern media as a factor. I was gobsmacked at how clearly the authors described what happened in the social bullseye around the abuser and victims.
Like a good movie that captures you within the first few scenes, Detecting Deceit accomplished that within the first few pages. The mention that is based on real events turns this book into a must-read. As a parent, it is important to be vigilant and pro-active.
