Little Lost Souls is the 2nd book in the Lucy Kendall Crime Thriller series. This book picks up where Book 1 left off, so I would say it could not be read as a stand alone as you’ll need the backstory to fully understand it. Lucy is a private investigator who tries to help children who are victims of pedophiles since she lost her sister after she was abused as a child. In this second installment, she tries to solve the mystery of while teens are being snatched and where they are going. She ends up getting involved in trying to bring down a sex trafficking ring. But once again, everyone has secrets and Lucy has to figure out who she can trust in order to remain safe and to get the correct information to put those in charge away. There is also a sub plot that continues from book 1 and is still not resolved. Guess it’s time to read #3 now…
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
To save the lost children of the city, she must put herself into terrible danger…
On the streets of Philadelphia, as the snow falls and black ice settles in dark back alleys, lost and vulnerable teenagers are being snatched off the streets. When one of them is found alive, Private Investigator Lucy Kendall knows she will never forget the sight of the boy’s brown eyes, forever dulled. She vows to find the monster behind the suffering.
Desperate to save the lost children of the city, Lucy goes into the dark places where the police cannot. But when a key witness is found dead, and a strand of Lucy’s long red hair is located near her body, Lucy suddenly finds herself under suspicion and on the run.
The chief of police knows all about Lucy’s own dark past and is convinced she’s guilty. Hiding in the shadows, unable to trust anyone, Lucy continues her search for the real killer. At last, in a dangerous suburb of the city, she befriends vulnerable fifteen-year-old Riley, who claims to know who the murderer is.
But when Riley disappears, Lucy must race to find the twisted soul responsible for snuffing out the lives of these little lost souls before another innocent girl is taken. Lucy is determined to get justice even if it costs her freedom… or her life.
A gripping, page-turning thriller full of mystery and suspense. Perfect for fans of Rachel Caine, Lisa Regan and Robert Dugoni.
