Publisher's Summary

In a city divided and broken, this revelation will set it on fire...

Attorney Justin Glass's practice, housed in a shabby office on the north side of Saint Louis, isn't doing so well that he can afford to work for free. But when eight-year-old Tanisha Walker offers him a jar full of change to find her missing brother, he doesn't have the heart to turn her away.

Justin had hoped to find the boy alive and well. But all that was found of Devon Walker was his brutally murdered body - and the bodies of twelve other African American teenagers, all discarded like trash in a mass grave. Each had been reported missing. And none had been investigated.

As simmering racial tensions explode into violence, Justin finds himself caught in the tide. And as he gives voice to the discontent plaguing the city's forgotten and ignored, he vows to search for the killer who preys upon them.

    Story
    "Excellent suspense mystery; marvelous narration"

    It can also be classified as a legal mystery. Little Boy Lost was a Kindle First selection which I read in July. It is a suspense mystery about the murder of 12 boys in St. Louis. The protagonist is a lawyer named Justin Glass and his law practice and his determination to find the serial killer although the police want him not to interfere with the investigation. Lawyer Glass is from a prominent family (his dad is a US congressman, his brother is in the Missouri senate, and his grandfather is a retired federal judge). His family is wealthy, but he is not. Glass has an almost-teen daughter Samantha (nickname Sammy) but is single because his wife died of cancer.Glass and Sammy live with his grandfather and grandmother.

    This novel earns 5 stars on the strength of character development, interesting characters, a nice plot line, and a killer twist at the end. I like the audiobook more than the Kindle version because of the spot-on narration by JD Jackson.

    "first time ever audio book"

    listening is better than reading with old eyes and the pictures the mind creates from words seems to be more dramatic and colorful!
    Thank you for a great first time experience!

    "Great and Interesting Book"

    I really enjoyed this book. It had my interest in chapter 1. I was so curious to know what was going to happen in future chapters that I could not stop reading. Some chapters had me laughing and some had me wondering who had done the crime. I love books that make me feel like I'm a part of what I'm reading. I recommend this book to everyone because it will keep you interested.

    Story
    "Outstanding book from new (to me) author..."

    Justin Glass is a street lawyer, widower and father to a young daughter. He is also interracial with a black father who is a congressman and a white mother. He's broke and lives on his grandfather's (a former judge) property.
    While searching for a teenage boy at the request of a young client the boys body is found along with eleven other boys. All African American and all have been in trouble with the law. All the boys had been reported missing but no investigation was ever done for any of them. The police want to keep it hushed up. They're afraid of the racial outfall.
    In the meanwhile he has a screwy misdemeanor public intoxication case. The defendant wants a trial but evidence seems to be missing. There's a computer hacker who owes Justin his life and so much more...
    With so many characters and three cases going on there's no confusion and it is actually a well thought out story with pieces that fit perfectly together.
    Part police procedural part court room drama, EXCELLENT story.
    The narrator JD Jackson is perfect for this book.
    This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.
    If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
    Thank You.

    "Little Boy Losy"

    The narative was fast moving without being constantly violent.it had human interaction and interesting character development. The plot was convoluted enough to be interesting, but not so much that you lost interest.

    "Entertaining and introspective"

    The story is timely. You can almost see it in the news any day of the week. It kept me guessing until the last couple of chapters.

    "Same old story with trendy clothes."

    I wanted to love this story, but I couldn't buy the martyrdom of the main character. The plot was hackneyed which disappointed me since the author missed an opportunity to tell a new story based on contemporary events.

    Story
    "Pleasent, but lost me part way through!"

    This is a nicely written book, with well drawn characters who I warmed to. Despite this, my attention began to waver 2/3rds through and eventually, I lost interest. I agree with an Audible American reviewer, in that it needs some twists and turns. I don't like twists to be overdone, but there is little here in the later chapters to maintain interest.

    The narrator is excellent.

    "Very very good"

    The conspiracy and intrigue kept my interest the whole way through, with a surprising twist to cap it all off , the narrator was excellent, putting great feeling into the author's great story

    "Entertaining"

    I enjoyed this and found the main characters likeable & engaging, clearly a good set up for a series. I was a little disappointed with the amount of politics included & felt the main mystery could have benefited from a bit more attention but maybe I'm being picky.

    Story
    "Little Boy Lost by J D Trafford"

    Excellent story by J D Trafford and nicely narrated by J D Jackson. Brought back memories of about 60 years ago when our English news told of how the first black lady dared to get on a white persons bus in America.

    We were shocked in U.K. as it did and could not have occurred.

    This author has told a moving story where I wanted to crawl in the pages and sort the white thugs out. However, not possible, it's fiction so I won't spoil the the good story of one black man, his daughter and his family, who seemed so real.
    A good detective mystery until the very end which was very satisfying.

    Well worth reading and, or listening to.
