In The Lost Girl of Astor Street, eighteen-year-old Piper Sail is convinced the police aren’t looking in the right place after the disappearance of her best friend, Lydia.

Daughter of a well-known mobster attorney, Piper’s search for the truth takes her to some unsavory neighborhoods. But a handsome Italian policeman – Detective Mariano Cassano – is determined to keep her safe and find the answers to Lydia’s disappearance.

Morrill delivers a gutsy, intelligent heroine, a twisting mystery plot, and descriptive historical details (the Roaring Twenties!). Readers will clamor for more mysteries staring this intrepid amateur sleuth.
