Lost girls : an unsolved American mystery

"One evening in late spring 2010, Shannan Gilbert ran through the oceanfront community of Oak Beach screaming for her life and was never seen again. No one thought much about her disappearance: she was a Craigslist escort probably fleeing a scene--of what, no one could be sure. The Suffolk County police also seemed to have paid little attention--until seven months later, when an unexpected discovery in a bramble alongside a nearby highway uncovered four bodies, all evenly spaced, all wrapped in burlap. But none of them Shannan's. There was Maureen Brainard-Barnes, last seen at New York's Penn Station in 2007; Melissa Barthelemy, last seen in the Bronx in 2009; Megan Waterman, last seen leaving a hotel in Hauppauge, Long Island, just a month after Shannon's disappearance in 2010; and Amber Lynn Costello, last seen leaving a house in West Babylon, Long Island, a few months later that same year. Like Shannan, all four women were petite, in their twenties, and had come from out of town to work as escorts, and they all had advertised on Craigslist and its competitor, Backpage. Lost Girls is a portrait of unsolved murders in an idyllic part of America, of the underside of the internet, and of the secrets we keep even from ourselves. This updated edition includes an afterword with the latest developments in the case and the shocking fate of Mari Gilbert, Shannan's mother, for whom this case became the crusade of a lifetime."--Back cover.
