Praise for The Lost Girl of Astor Street
“Morrill has a keen eye for historical details and setting, making Jazz Age Chicago Piper’s invisible yet omnipresent sidekick. Here’s hoping this won’t be the last case for this strong and admirable female sleuth to solve.” -Kirkus Reviews
“Morrill delivers a story that has it all—mystery, the mafia, and a heroine you can’t help but root for. If Veronica Mars met the Roaring Twenties, you’d end up with The Lost Girl of Astor Street!” -Roseanna M. White, bestselling author of The Lost Heiress
“Morrill’s latest book is a welcome addition to most public library and school fiction collections, and will likely be hard to keep on the shelf.” -VOYA
“A fast-paced mystery that sparkles with the sights and sounds of 1920s Chicago. The strong characters and setting drew me in, and the twists and turns kept me hooked until the end.” -Renee Collins, author of Until We Meet Again
About The Lost Girl of Astor Street
Lydia has vanished.
Lydia, who’s never broken any rules, except falling in love with the wrong boy. Lydia, who’s been Piper’s best friend since they were children. Lydia, who never even said good-bye.
Convinced the police are looking in all the wrong places, eighteen-year-old Piper Sail begins her own investigation in an attempt to solve the mystery of Lydia’s disappearance. With the reluctant help of a handsome young detective, Piper goes searching for answers in the dark underbelly of 1924 Chicago, determined to find Lydia at any cost.
When Piper discovers those answers might stem from the corruption strangling the city—and quite possibly lead back to the doors of her affluent neighborhood—she must decide how deep she’s willing to dig, how much she should reveal, and if she’s willing to risk her life of privilege for the sake of the truth.
From the glitzy homes of the elite to the mob-run streets of 1920s Chicago, Stephanie Morrill’s jazz-age mystery shows just how far a girl will go to save her friend.
