Abstract:

So much to read, so little time' This brief overview of Lost Girls: An Unsolved American Mystery tells you what you need to know-before or after you read Robert Kolker's book. Crafted and edited with care, Worth Books set the standard for quality and give you the tools you need to be a well-informed reader. This short summary and analysis of Lost Girls includes: -Chapter-by-chapter overviews -Character profiles -Detailed timeline of events -Important quotes and analysis -Fascinating trivia -Glossary of terms -Supporting material to enhance your understanding of the original workAbout Lost Girls: An Unsolved American Mystery by Robert Kolker: In December 2010, the remains of four missing women were found just outside a secluded community on the south shore of Long Island. As more bodies were uncovered, Suffolk County police began to suspect that a serial killer was targeting prostitutes online. The ensuing investigation pitted families against police, and neighbor against neighbor, as the authorities struggled with an increasingly unwieldy case. Lost Girls gives a detailed account of the victims, the investigators, and the community. Relying on exhaustive interviews with those who knew and loved the victims, Kolker creates a sensitive portrait of each woman. He offers insight into how prostitution has changed in the Internet age, and the high costs we continue to pay by ignoring the sex workers who take part in a ubiquitous, if unseen, profession. The summary and analysis in this ebook are intended to complement your reading experience and bring you closer to a great work of nonfiction.
