Publisher's Summary

In a city divided and broken, this revelation will set it on fire...

Attorney Justin Glass's practice, housed in a shabby office on the north side of Saint Louis, isn't doing so well that he can afford to work for free. But when eight-year-old Tanisha Walker offers him a jar full of change to find her missing brother, he doesn't have the heart to turn her away.

Justin had hoped to find the boy alive and well. But all that was found of Devon Walker was his brutally murdered body - and the bodies of twelve other African American teenagers, all discarded like trash in a mass grave. Each had been reported missing. And none had been investigated.

As simmering racial tensions explode into violence, Justin finds himself caught in the tide. And as he gives voice to the discontent plaguing the city's forgotten and ignored, he vows to search for the killer who preys upon them.

    "Pleasent, but lost me part way through!"

    This is a nicely written book, with well drawn characters who I warmed to. Despite this, my attention began to waver 2/3rds through and eventually, I lost interest. I agree with an Audible American reviewer, in that it needs some twists and turns. I don't like twists to be overdone, but there is little here in the later chapters to maintain interest.

    The narrator is excellent.

    "Very very good"

    The conspiracy and intrigue kept my interest the whole way through, with a surprising twist to cap it all off , the narrator was excellent, putting great feeling into the author's great story

    "Entertaining"

    I enjoyed this and found the main characters likeable & engaging, clearly a good set up for a series. I was a little disappointed with the amount of politics included & felt the main mystery could have benefited from a bit more attention but maybe I'm being picky.

    "Little Boy Lost by J D Trafford"

    Excellent story by J D Trafford and nicely narrated by J D Jackson. Brought back memories of about 60 years ago when our English news told of how the first black lady dared to get on a white persons bus in America.

    We were shocked in U.K. as it did and could not have occurred.

    This author has told a moving story where I wanted to crawl in the pages and sort the white thugs out. However, not possible, it's fiction so I won't spoil the the good story of one black man, his daughter and his family, who seemed so real.
    A good detective mystery until the very end which was very satisfying.

    Well worth reading and, or listening to.

    "Excellent suspense mystery; marvelous narration"

    It can also be classified as a legal mystery. Little Boy Lost was a Kindle First selection which I read in July. It is a suspense mystery about the murder of 12 boys in St. Louis. The protagonist is a lawyer named Justin Glass and his law practice and his determination to find the serial killer although the police want him not to interfere with the investigation. Lawyer Glass is from a prominent family (his dad is a US congressman, his brother is in the Missouri senate, and his grandfather is a retired federal judge). His family is wealthy, but he is not. Glass has an almost-teen daughter Samantha (nickname Sammy) but is single because his wife died of cancer.Glass and Sammy live with his grandfather and grandmother.

    This novel earns 5 stars on the strength of character development, interesting characters, a nice plot line, and a killer twist at the end. I like the audiobook more than the Kindle version because of the spot-on narration by JD Jackson.

    "first time ever audio book"

    listening is better than reading with old eyes and the pictures the mind creates from words seems to be more dramatic and colorful!
    Thank you for a great first time experience!

    Story
    "annoying attempt to be topical"

    This book is designed to play off of hot-button contemporary issues (e.g. Ferguson), and as a result is a seemingly well-intentioned book hast raises but fails to deal with significant issues. The protagonist has managed to go through life utterly unaware of very much of anything, so is naturally contemplating running for office. His affair with the married mayor is dealt with only as a potential political problem; the oral elements are never raised. His daughter suffers bullying at her school, but the only solution is to put her in a private (read: all-white) school. The neo-Nazi counselor isn't evaluated on whether he is suited for his job . . . The list goes on. it's the kind of book you might keep listening to just to see who the author finally makes the bad guy, but then you would immediately stop, as the denouement really doesn't matter in something so contrived.

    "Not bad but not necessarily a page turner."

    Overall, the performance was great. Parts of the story, however, could have been eliminated. Guessing the pieces with the lawyers daughter were included to help paint the picture but really had no impact to the plot. This book was well written. The story was just not exciting.

    Well done and great ending. Just wished I did not feel like I had been schooled on racial issues even when true. Too close to todays news.

    "It was okay"

    I didn’t find the storyline believable. And some of the dialogue was unbalanced. When a street ‘child’ is speaking he (and his mother) uses so much slang that it’s hard to keep up ‘dis’ and ‘he be...’. but then the same character will throw in a completely audible/clear word like ‘absolutely.’ It just didn’t work. However, we started the book and finished it. Meh.
