Flashing forward to the present, Jane and Mick (who are both facing upheaval in their lives) consent to talk to journalist Erin who claims to be creating a radio documentary about the long term impact of crime. While it is clear that Erin's motivation is not what she claims, it takes time as the story unfolds to piece together her own struggle to cope with a devastating life event.
Told through a combination of present day, memories and interview transcripts The Lost Girls seamlessly weaves between past and present, leaving a trail of clues enticing enough to keep the reader fully engaged as the mystery of just what did happen to Angie intensifies. Each chapter reveals a new twist and the suspense builds gradually at first and then more intensely as the story reaches its shocking conclusion.
This is a gripping tale of painful memories and secrets, of buried hurts and the ongoing aftermath of a traumatic event on those who live through it.
