Greg Herren recommends
Little Girl Lost (2018)
(Foundlings Trilogy, book 1)
Wendy Corsi Staub
"Wendy Corsi Staub is one of the best suspense writers we have today. Her complicated characters are heartbreakingly real, and the suspense is so unbearable you can’t stop turning the page. Little Girl Lost is classic Staub, at the top of her game."
