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.

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.
