Hi everyone !
The first book for this month is 'Little Girl Lost' by Brian McGilloway
Brian Gilloway :
Brian McGilloway was born in Derry, Northern Ireland in 1974. After studying English at Queen's University, Belfast, he took up a teaching position in St Columb's College in Derry, where he is currently Head of English.
His first novel, Borderlands, published by Macmillan New Writing, was shortlisted for the CWA New Blood Dagger 2007 and was hailed by The Times as 'one of (2007's) most impressive debuts.' The second novel in the series, Gallows Lane, was shortlisted for the 2009 Irish Book Awards/Ireland AM Crime Novel of the Year. The third Devlin, Bleed a River Deep, was selected by Publishers Weekly as one of their Best Books of 2010. The fourth Devlin novel, The Rising, will be published in paperback in Spring 2011 alongside the hardback release of LIttle Girl Lost, a new stand-alone novel featuring PSNI Detective Sergeant Lucy Black.
During a winter blizzard a small girl is found wandering half-naked at the edge of an ancient woodland. Her hands are covered in blood, but it is not her own.
Unwilling or unable to speak, the only person she seems to trust is the young officer who rescued her, Detective Sergeant Lucy Black.
DS Black is baffled to find herself suddenly transferred from a high-profile case involving the kidnapping of a prominent businessman’s teenage daughter, to the newly formed Public Protection Unit. Meanwhile, she has her own problems: caring for her Alzheimer’s-stricken father; and avoiding conflict with her surly Assistant Chief Constable – who also happens to be her mother.
As she struggles to identify the unclaimed child, Lucy begins to realise that this case and the kidnapping may be linked – by events that occurred during the blackest days of the country’s recent history, events that also defined her own girlhood.
Little Girl Lost is a devastating page-turner about corruption, greed and vengeance, and a father’s love for his daughter.
Lucy is a courageous and determinated person. She has to manage between her job and his father who is sick, it’s not easy for her. Also, she is not in good relation with her mother who divorced from her father when she was young.
When she discovered this little girl, something happens between them. Lucy is very upset about this little girl and she really want to know what’s happened to her.
I liked this book, a story as I like and thanks to the author.
Have a good reading !
See you soon !!!
