Publisher's Summary

Midwinter. A child is found wandering in an ancient woodland, her hands 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.

Soon afterwards, DS Black finds herself moved from a high-profile case involving the kidnapping of another girl, a prominent businessman’s teenage daughter. As she tries to identify the unclaimed child, Black begins to realise that her case and the kidnapping may be linked by events from the grimmest days of the country’s recent history - events that also defined her own trouble childhood.

    Story
    "Slow, characters unsavoury, not believable"

    I got this book as it was on the New York Bestseller list and it sounded interesting. It was narrated by Caroline Lennon as was the 'Jane Casey' books which I really enjoyed. However I felt this was read in a very harsh severe chastising way and it took from the story.
    I felt the characters were very unsavoury and held no interest for me. I could easily have put it down before half way but did continue to the end hoping it would improve but alas 'no'.
    I have not heard of this author before and so would not rush out to purchase another book based on this one.
    I know it is part of the norm for budding detectives' to have personal issues themselves or failing that friends/family with them but Lucy's parents are distasteful characters.
    (I am mindful not to divulge the plot so this is why I am writing as I do).
    Her father suffers with Alzheimer's and can be violent and aggressive as a result. Lucy appears to have little knowledge/insight of this condition putting herself in danger as a result. As regards her father what emerges as part of his past activities is horrible as is the end result for him which his ex wife and mother of Lucy has a strong hand in.
    Lucy's mother is portrayed as a cold distant character who really I cannot understand
    The book develops with Lucy figuring out complex situations as if by chance putting herself in grave danger which you would have expected her to anticipate as she appears to have insight in other ways.
    The story contains a mixed bag of nastiness, common punishments during the 'troubles' in Northern Ireland described, child neglect/abuse, and lack of child protection by Social Care.
    The end of the book (in my opinion) is very lacklustre and feels like it did not achieve anything.
    Overall a very disappointing book and I will be asking Audible to transfer this credit to another book.
    I understand some have given this good reviews and so I cannot say it would not be worth reading but for me I could not recommend and am glad to see the back of it.

    Story
    "Most entertaining!!"
    Would you listen to Little Girl Lost again? Why?

    I would listen again! There are lots of twists and turns and I would happily listen again to get the nuances oif the book!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The geberal pace is excellent - just gives you enough to keep you wanting more...


    Have you listened to any of Caroline Lennon’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I enjoyed Caroline Lennon's reading - I am currently downloading book 2 of this series (Hurt).


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I was really ready and waiting for the next installment!


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent book! I plan on reading more of Briam McGolloway's books!

    Story
    "It was okay"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Hmm. Well, this certainly wasn't the worst thing I could've spent my time on, far from it, but I could easily have spent it on something better.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I liked that there's a bit of history involved, and I liked getting to know Lucy Black outside of work. But overall it's not particularly surprising or challenging, it's more along the lines of any standard crime story, what with the main character having some problems at home, but being very good at his or her job. And running after bad guys without waiting for backup.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The very first part, where we get a brief look at what life is like at home for Lucy, and the bit after, when she finds the little girl in the woods. Got a bit repetative after that.


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    Yeah, maybe. At least I wouldn't avoid it. Probably something I'd randomly watch on TV rather than actually going to the cinema for, though.


    Any additional comments?

    Not a bad listen, but not a new favourite, either. I feel slightly indifferent about it all.
