Review:

'Effortlessly blending Black's personal woes into her professional life, McGilloway weaves a taut police procedural in an unadorned style that belies the stories complexity... McGilloway has tapped into a fascinating and febrile setting...It's an impressive statement of intent from an author whose reputation grows with each release' --Irish Times

'A little girl is found wandering in snowy woodland, wearing only her pyjamas and unable or unwilling to speak. Meanwhile, the search continues for another teenage female who has been snatched from her home....So begins the latest crime novel from the award-winning pen of Northern Irish writer Brian McGilloway - and it's an intriguing start to a totally engrossing read. McGilloway is best known for his extremely popular Inspector Devlin series, but Little Girl Lost is a stand-alone books featuring DS Lucy Black. Lucy has a complicated family life, and families - and their dysfunctions - are a recurring theme throughout the novel. The story is well-plotted, with a clear sense of place and history which sets it apart from the run of the mill. This is a highly-recommended read from a greatly accomplished author.' --Press Association

'This standalone thriller is cleverly constructed, packed with vibrant and believable characters and admirably free of the clichés of the genre... It confirms him as one of the most original voices in the notably expanding field of Irish crime fiction and this reviewer, for one, would like to read more of DS Lucy Black.' --Irish Independent

'Brian McGilloway's Little Girl Lost (Macmillan) is a police procedural set in contemporary Derry, as DS Black investigates the disappearance of a young girl who can identify a killer. A standalone from his critically acclaimed Inspector Devlin series, this is an assured and grittily realistic tale from an author who is being compared to James Lee Burke and Ian Rankin.' --Sunday Business Post

Book Description:

During a winter blizzard a small girl is found wandering half-naked at the edge of an ancient woodland. Her hands are covered in blood, but it is not her own. Unwilling or unable to speak, the only person she seems to trust is the young officer who rescued her, Detective Sergeant Lucy Black. DS Black is baffled to find herself suddenly transferred from a high-profile case involving the kidnapping of a prominent businessman’s teenage daughter, to the newly formed Public Protection Unit. Meanwhile, she has her own problems: caring for her Alzheimer’s-stricken father; and avoiding conflict with her surly Assistant Chief Constable – who also happens to be her mother. As she struggles to identify the unclaimed child, Lucy begins to realise that this case and the kidnapping may be linked – by events that occurred during the blackest days of the country’s recent history, events that also defined her own girlhood. Little Girl Lost is a devastating page-turner about corruption, greed and vengeance, and a father’s love for his daughter.
