Miranda Sugarman was supposed to be in the Midwest, working as an eye doctor.  So how did she end up shot to death on the roof of one of New York City’s seediest strip clubs?

It’s John Blake’s job to find out – not just because he’s a private investigator, but because ten years earlier, Miranda had been his lover. Now he has to uncover the truth about the missing decade, about Miranda’s secret life as half of the strip club circuit’s hottest act, and about the vicious underworld figure she worked for. But the closer John gets to the truth, the more dangerous his investigation becomes, until a shattering faceoff in an East Village tenement changes his life forever.

Little Girl Lost is a stunning debut novel from a celebrated writer whose short stories have been selected for Best Mystery Stories of the Year and The Year’s Best Horror Stories as well as short-listed for the Shamus Award by the Private Eye Writers of America.
