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.
