Little Girl Lost Update

Some early press reaction to Little Girl Lost:

'Effortlessly blending Black’s personal woes into her professional life, McGilloway weaves a taut police procedural in an unadorned style that belies the story’s complexity. With a backdrop provided by the PSNI’s ongoing evolution as a police force, and the tension inherent in its attempts to police a vibrant Derry that is in the process of shaking off the shackles of its recent history, McGilloway has tapped into a fascinating and febrile setting…

It’s an impressive statement of intent from an author whose reputation grows with each release.' The full review can be read at The Irish Times.

The Sunday Business Post says ‘This is an assured and grittily realistic tale from an author who is being compared to James Lee Burke and Ian Rankin.’

BookGeeks concluded ‘Little Girl Lost is atypical, in places heartbreaking and always intriguing, and entertains while lifting a curtain on one of the most troubled places in Europe.  On the strength of this outing, the DS Black series is definitely one to watch.’

Brian was recently interviewed on RTE Radio 1’s Arena about Little Girl Lost. You can listen to the interview here.

Finally, you can read a feature on Brian and his reasons for taking a break from Devlin in this Irish Independent piece.
