Book Review: Little Girl Lost & Hurt by Brian McGilloway

Really enjoyed this first outing for DS Lucy Black, having previously read a couple of author
Brian McGilloway’s Inspector Devlin series.

I really like the characters in Mr McGilloway’s books – very well written and believable. These are detective/police dramas based in Northern Ireland with the history of the troubles as a (distant) backdrop.

DS Lucy Black has her own demons to cope with but doesn’t spend pages of the book thinking about them, her family issues are just there in the background and make her the person she is.

As soon as I’d finished this book, I wanted to read more so quickly went on to the second Lucy book – Hurt. No falling off in quality, that was also a cracking read with a very believable
storyline about the grooming and abuse of vulnerable youngsters.
