"A close look at a killer . . . Lost Girls by veteran journalist and true-crime writer Caitlin Rother is a deeply reported, dispassionately written attempt to determine what created a monster and predator. It is a cautionary tale and a horror story, done superbly by a writer who knows how to burrow into a complex case without becoming captive to her sources." ----Los Angeles Times
"The disturbing story of John Gardner, who kidnapped, raped, and murdered two teenage girls in San Diego. . . . Rother addresses the complexity and difficulty of managing paroled sexual predators. This book will be popular with fans of Rother, Ann Rule, and other popular true crime writers." ---- Library Journal
"Well-written, thought-provoking . . . if ever a 'true crime' deserved a book-length study, this is certainly that crime." ----San Diego Union Tribune
