Little Girl Lost" is firmly ensconced in the noir crime genre with a tarnished knight errant questing through a stark urban landscape populated by grifters and crooks, rummies and dummies, and jaded cops who want nothing more than a simple case and to live long enough to finish their shifts. Also in the tradition of the genre, John Blake tells his own story in a first-person narrative that is engrossing, kinetic and insightful.

I wasn’t reading, not any more, just watching the girl in the photo stare . I stood on tiptoe to get it down, wobbling a little as blood rushed to my head. One of them was the person who had thrown the thing out in the first place.
I wasn’t reading, not any more, just watching the girl in the photo stare back at me, a big smile on her face, all her teeth showing, her eyes squinting against the photographer’s flash, blond bangs hanging down under the peak of her mortarboard cap. That was one of two photos the paper had run; the other was on page nineteen, where the article continued. Miranda laughed and I felt her hands around my waist, trying to hold me back, but I carried the cage out to the living room and she followed, my blanket wound around her body.
John Blake and Miranda Sugarman dated in high school, but after graduation they went their separate ways: he stayed in New York City and became a private investigator while she moved to the midwest and settled down to a safe, respectable life as an eye doctor. Or so he thought -- until the day, ten years later, when he opened the Daily News and saw Miranda's photo staring out at him under the headline "STRIPPER MURDERED." John wants to find out how Miranda ended up stripping for a living. What happened to Miranda's college roommate, Jocelyn, who also dropped out when Miranda did? And just how was Miranda involved with small-time drug dealer Murco Khachadurian? The closer John gets to the answers, the more dangerous and violent the case becomes, until a bloody assault on someone close to him leads John to a shocking discovery and a shattering face-off with the person responsible.
