I found Frustrated Witness!: The Real Untold Story of the Adam Walsh Case by Willis Morgan absolutely fascinating. I used to love watching America’s Most Wanted and was surprised when John Walsh, the host’s own son, was murdered. Since I was young at the time, I did not follow the case and did not know much about it. However, I have followed Jeffrey Dahmer and stories about him. Morgan has done an amazing job of filling the book with actual facts, details, and information pertaining to the death of Adam Walsh.

In Frustrated Witness, Morgan gives evidence that it is possible that Jeffrey Dahmer was involved in the murder of Adam Walsh. At first I was skeptical and thought it could be a coincidence that Dahmer was involved since he was living in Florida at the time. Reading the book has since changed my mind and I do believe that Dahmer was involved. The main thing I enjoyed about this book was that Morgan wrote about Dahmer’s life. I never knew that Dahmer served in the army. The way that Morgan told witnesses and victims' personal stories, with their approval, made the book hard to put down for me. The pictures that Morgan included of the victims and Dahmer made the story and his opinion of Dahmer more believable. I also liked that Morgan put in actual photos of the case files. The attention to detail in this book was truly astounding.

Overall, I thought Morgan did an amazing job of presenting evidence that Dahmer could be involved in the death of Adam Walsh. He has made me a believer. I highly recommend Frustrated Witness to anyone who enjoys reading about true crime.

It was a good book, except for one thing. Jeffery Dahmer had nothing to do with the murder of Adam Walsh. Jeffery admitted to 17 homicides and told every detail of the cases. He himself said: "I've told you everything. how I killed them, how I cooked them, who I ate. Why wouldn't I tell you if I did it to someone else?"
