Nashville PI Jackson Gamble takes on a case that seems simple enough. All he has to do is find and return home a fourteen-year-old girl who has disappeared from home. Gamble's experience tells him the girl is just another runaway, but her mother insists she has been kidnapped. The search for Gabrielle sets Gamble on a path that leads him through the city's underbelly of sex for hire, pornography, snake-handling religious fundamentalists, and perhaps a serial killer of teenaged girls.


With the help of an attractive woman with a heartbreaking past of her own, he reaches the conclusion of his investigation, with results that are both tragic and unforgettable, where the smallest mistake could spell the end of both his career and his life.

Lost Little Girl is Gregory Stout's debut mystery in the Jackson Gamble series. He is also the author of Gideon's Ghost, a young adult novel which takes place in small-town America in the mid-1960's. He has also written 21 books on the history of American railroads.  He resides with his wife, Carol, and two cats, Wallace and Gromit, in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

It is 1965 and Gary Seiler is a fourteen-year old boy with a very big problem. He’s got a girlfriend named Wendy and a whole summer ahead of him to spend with her and to work on his game, so he can try out for the varsity golf team when school starts in the fall. But then his plans are upended when his father is critically injured in a car accident and Gary is sent off to spend the summer with his grandparents in Fairweather, a small town in Oklahoma where he is sure nothing good is going to happen.

 

Upon arrival in Fairweather, Gary is met by his Uncle Bob, who is only seventeen himself, and who has plans of his own for the summer that do not include “wasting his time” with Gary. However, at the insistence of Gary’s grandparents, Gary and Bob are stuck with one another and immediately embark on a series of adventures, including car races, finding a dead body in the woods and Gary’s first “real” kiss, which presents him with a bigger problem than anyone could have imagined.

 

Along the way, Gary meets a girl named Darby, who teaches him about sportsmanship and a strange boy named Gideon, who somehow seems to have stepped out of the past. Gideon soon befriends Gary and before the summer is over, not only saves his life but also helps Gary to understand the meaning and importance of family, love and forgiveness.
