Présentation de l'éditeur

This New York Times bestseller is perfect for fans of Tana French and Dennis Lehane.

Midwinter. A child is found wandering through the snowy woods, her hands covered in someone else's blood. And she cannot—or will not—speak, not even to share her name.

Who is this little girl lost? The only adult she seems to trust is the young officer who found her, Detective Lucy Black. Before long, Lucy manages to connect her case to that of a missing teenager, the kidnapped daughter of a local real estate tycoon. As the investigation twists and turns, Lucy is forced to question not only a range of dangerous suspects, but also everything she thought she knew about her own past.

Little Girl Lost
By
Brian McGilloway

My " in a nutshell" summary...

One girl is lost...another is found...and detective Lucy is smack dab in the middle of this huge mystery.

My thoughts after reading this book...

The book begins with the disappearance of Kate...a 16 year old who disappeared while out with friends. Lucy is new to this task force...she has returned to her home town...Derry...to work and take care of her father. Unfortunately...her father is ailing...he is in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease and is increasingly difficult to care for. Lucy is also involved with another little girl who has been found...freezing...lost in the woods...and covered in blood. This little girl...Alice...also has hairs and fibers on her that are known to be Kate's. From this point on this book gets intense and complicated. Lucy's relationship with Alice grows...Alice remains in the hospital...sort of mute and lifeless...holding onto secrets that she should not ever know.

There are enough twists and turns and connections in this book to keep pages turning. I never knew whom I should trust in this book...there are drugs, homemade bombs and enough drama to sort of make me question who actually had Kate and why they took her. I wish I could tell you more but this is one of those mysteries where you get a little piece of what is happening...in the beginning...and as you get more and more pieces...it's not really any clearer...just more mysterious until those final ending pages.

I can tell you that it was an engaging story and a really good mystery. My time was well spent with this book.

My appreciation to the publisher, Edelweiss and Amazon for allowing me to read this book.

D.S. Lucy Black, of the Police Service of Northern Ireland and the daughter of police officers, in the midst of a search for a young girl, Kate McLaughlin, whose father is a prominent businessman, stumbles [almost literally] upon another young girl, wandering in what is termed an `ancient woodland,' suffering severe hypothermia among other things due to her prolonged exposure to the elements in the brutal winter cold and snow. The latter child is unidentified, and remains so despite pleas to the public and circulation through print media and televised press conferences of her information and photograph. The only one to achieve any response from the girl, and that very limited, is Lucy.

Chief Superintendent Travers, of the CID, transfers Lucy, despite her desire for a post in the CID, to the Public Protection Unit "for the foreseeable future," and assigns her to the case of the unidentified child. Her position is made more complex than it otherwise might be by virtue of the fact that her mother is the Assistant Chief Constable. Only in the division a month, Lucy has taken pains to keep that information hidden, made easier by the fact that her mother reverted to her own name when her parents divorced 14 years earlier. The two investigations proceed side by side, the lines at times crossing from one to the other. As the tale goes one, the heart-tugging stories of more than one other Little Girls Lost arise.

Lucy's personal life intrudes on her work: She had requested her present assignment because her father, an ex-cop for over twenty years, is now increasingly suffering from dementia, if not actually Alzheimer's, and she has moved back to Derry after many years away. Her relationship with both her parents is strained, to say the least, and becomes more so as the novel proceeds. Derry is cited as "the birthplace of The Troubles," and however long ago that era was, perhaps inevitably its presence is still very much a force in the lives of those who lived through it. A fascinating novel, and recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A very good thriller, but not a fast paced one 16 septembre 2011

I liked this book very much.

The mystery was good, well written. The well-drawn characters make you keep wanting to read, to find out what is going to happen next.

The book is not fast paced, though, despite some very good chasing scenes. It is not a problem for me, since I like this kind of thrillers as well, but if you don't, maybe this is not the book for you.

Lucy is a great character, a very enjoyable human being, with a sad story and an incredible way to connect to children. I would love to read more about her.

At the end of the book, there are some pictures of the landscape of Derry in the kindle edition. Were they at the beginning, I'd have had some help to visualize the places where the action happened... But I guess it would spoil the readers...

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Children in Peril Make for Good Read 24 février 2014
Par Barbara J. Mitchell - Publié sur Amazon.com

I'm reading eBooks again so I apologize to my followers who don't read them. Sometimes the book looks too good to hold out for the paperback edition. That's the case here too.

I was caught up in the story immediately. It's set in northern Ireland, in and around Derry. A milk truck gets stuck in the snow and as the driver is looking over the situation, he sees a little girl in pajamas at the edge of the nearby woods. When he tries to approach her though, she runs back into the woods. He can't imagine why she would be there in the cold, so he calls for help. The police have been looking for a missing girl. Is it her? Lucy Black gets the call.

When they get the little girl to the hospital, she won't speak. She isn't the missing girl nor has anyone called to say this girl is lost. Meanwhile, her pj top has been sprayed with blood and luminol shows that her hands had been covered with it. She is unhurt, but every time she falls asleep she awakes screaming.

Meanwhile, Black has terrible problems at home with her father, a retired cop. She loves him and lives with him to care for him, but unfortunately he has Alzheimer's disease and has reached the point where she'll have to put him in a home. He wanders away from the house and he's becoming violent.

The story is a little hard to follow. There are so many characters involved in the two children's lives, and pieces of the puzzle go all the way back to The Troubles. As they search for one child and try to find the identity of the girl in pajamas, Black finds a third little girl in a house of horrors. This one cares for her baby brother while mom gets high on drugs with boyfriend. So many children in harm's way . . . Lucy Black is very emotional coping with it all.

It's a great story with well-drawn characters, sad but satisfactory in that you understand why everything is happening.

Highly recommended

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Okay, but bring your acronym dictionary along for the read 22 mars 2014

This book was pretty good, but I had a really hard time with it in the beginning because the author uses TONS of acronyms. Most have to do with British law enforcement, but I only know that now because I had to stop every few pages and look yet another acronym up.
In this day and age, when books are published in one country and instantly become available all over the world, an author should be aware that not everyone will know what all these damn acronyms stand for! It's bad enough that I had to read the British version with all the British spellings. That I can accept. Acronyms? Not so much.
