Publisher's Summary

One of PopSugar's Best Books of 2021

When her true-crime podcast becomes an overnight sensation, a young woman is pulled into the web of a case that may offer a surprising connection to her own sister's disappearance years earlier.

It's been more than 20 years since Marti Reese's sister, Maggie, disappeared. Only eight years old at the time, Marti can't remember what happened, just that Maggie got into a car and never returned. After years of grief and countless false leads, Marti is coping as best she can: abandoning her marriage, drinking to forget, and documenting her never-ending search via a true-crime podcast. But when the podcast becomes an unexpected hit and Marti thinks she's finally ready to put it all behind her, a mysterious woman calls with new information that could lead her down a dangerous path.

For years, Ava Vreeland has been fighting to overturn her brother's murder conviction. After finding strange similarities between the two cases, Ava is certain there's a connection between the murder and Maggie's disappearance, one that could prove her brother's innocence. Together, Marti and Ava embark on a quest for the truth, but the more Marti digs, the more she's shaken by the answers she might find, and what it is she's even searching for....

Critic Reviews

“Outstanding.... Surprising twists accent this poignant story about two women, each with a single-minded goal. Chiarella is a writer to watch.” (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

“Readers who enjoy true crime, especially podcasts, as well as thrillers featuring unreliable narrators, will appreciate Chiarella’s haunting story of lost girls, lost women, and revenge.” (Library Journal, starred review)  

"Dark, clever and gripping. Starting with its ripped-from-the-headlines opening to its fast and furious descent down the rabbit hole of lies, deceit and revenge, The Lost Girls grabs you by the throat and never lets go. Fans of podcasts, true crime and edgy thrillers must read this book!" (Lisa Gardner, author of Before She Disappeared)

Good story

Found the storyline interesting and enjoyable but just really struggled to listen to the narrator, it felt slightly overly dramatic which was off-putting.

Wonderful characters

I really loved this book. The main character's flaws were refreshing. Can't wait for the author's next book .
