Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Wendy Corsi Staub comes a gripping novel of psychological suspense, as a young foundling’s path to her biological parents leads to a killer with a chilling agenda.

MAY, 1968

On a murky pre-dawn Mother’s Day, sinister secrets play out miles apart in New York City. In Harlem, a church janitor finds an innocent newborn in a basket. In Brooklyn, an elusive serial killer prowls slumbering families, leaving a trail of blood and a twisted calling card. Cloaked in lies, these seemingly unrelated lives - and deaths - are destined to intersect on a distant, blood-soaked day.

OCTOBER, 1987

Reeling from shocking personal discoveries, two strangers navigate a world where nothing is as it seems. Amelia Crenshaw embarks on a search to discover the truth about the birth mother who abandoned her, never suspecting she’s on a collision course with a killer. Detective Stockton Barnes, a brash young NYPD detective, trails a missing millionaire whose disappearance is rooted in a nightmare that began 20 years ago.

The past returns with a brutal vengeance as a masked predator picks off victims whose fates intertwine with a notorious murder spree solved back in ‘68 - or was it?

Not Up To Staub's Standards

The book is set in 1986. I don't really understand that. The realities of 1986 are jarring and unnecessary. Why not set it in 2018?

The book jumps around from event to event and character to character. I'm halfway through and I'm still confused. I can't figure out why that's necessary. I understand the story but it's getting harder to keep up with the story.

The narrator is very good and does the different people well. The only thing I don't like about her, and this is something she does in all the books she narrates, is lowering her voice for asides. When the character "thinks" something, as in a separate opinion, she lowers her voice to the point I have to go back, up the volume, and listen again. This is annoying.

To sum up, the book is ok, the narrator is good except for the asides. But not $14.99 worth of ok. I'm not totally absorbed in this book.

Edit of my above review: I continued to listen to this book all the way to the end. The narrator continued to annoy. The book continued to jump around. I had to play the ending last because I couldn't figure out what was going on. Unless I slept through the character at the end, I had never encountered him in this book. Totally confusing. I think I'll pass up Staub's next book.

Unbelievably Racist

Let me start by saying I never give reviews but I had to get my voice heard on this one. I listened to the first book and it was so amazing I ended up buying the next two in the series. I get to this book (Little Girl Lost) and I can barely listen. It is so negative, angry and racist! I'm so disgusted I'm going to have to return it. I found myself getting more and more upset at the victimization and unfounded accusations. Very disappointed.

I'm not a fan

Disappointing book. The narration was great but the story fell flat. I listened to the entire book and kept waiting for it to improve.

Not relevant

I don't normally write reviews, but this is especially bad. I listen to a lot of books. I've listen to multiple books written by Wendy Corsi Staub before. I cannot even finish this one. In an aggressive effort to be relevant and tackle racial inequality, police brutality,and abortion, there are rants about each topic that have NO RELEVANCE to the storyline. which, by the way, is extremely boring in and of itself. Disappointed. I hope she goes back to writing real stories.
