New York Times bestselling author and Westchester resident Wendy Corsi Staub releases her new book, Little Girl Lost today, July 24. The first book in a trilogy called Foundlings, Little Girl Lost is a chilling, psychological suspense novel.
The story begins in 1968, when a baby is abandoned in a Harlem church and found by a janitor who, along with his wife, raises her. At the same time, the Brooklyn Butcher is on a killing spree, brutally slaughtering sleeping families.
Fast-forward to 1987, and Amelia Crenshaw is attempting to find the biological parents that abandoned her when her path unexpectedly leads to a killer. Meanwhile, NYPD Detective Stockton Barnes is looking for Wall Street millionaire Perry Wayland who has gone missing immediately after the Black Monday stock market crash. Barnes (whose name was chosen by Staub’s Facebook fans) is a character from her previous books but gets further developed in this first installment of the Foundlings trilogy. The author’s meticulous research tells a complex tale of multifaceted characters through a page-turning murder mystery inspired by the Charles Manson murders.
Staub has written more than 90 novels, with Foundlings being her fifth suspense trilogy for HarperCollins. Stay tuned to read more about Wendy Corsi Staub in the November issue of Westchester Magazine.
