    Great book. I have it on my kindle. Read it summer of 2013 right after it came out and have reread it twice. I remember thinking it had the makings of a good movie. I so wish this case could be solved. I am interested in watching the show that is to come out on this case, also discussed in these threads somewhere and hoping it and this movie may advance the case somehow.

    There will be no shortage of articles, books, and movies about the LISK. Everything except an arrest.

    Well I will continue to hope that publicity of any kind will be helpful. I also hope the clean sweep in Suffolk County may aid in the process of investigating these killings. These young women did not deserve to die and the killer needs to be apprehended before he can snuff out any more young lives.

    I'm sure it was a local or locals. No doubt the LE is involved and I have a good idea of who they were involved with as far as civilians go. Just putting 2 + 2 together, connecting the dots. I'm wondering on how far the book or movie has dug into the dirt. I'll have to get the book.

    The book delved pretty deep, surprisingly. Of course, there's stuff that came to fruition after 2013 but it is well researched and much better than I had expected. Definitely worth your time reading it, IMO. I've read and reread the book more than a couple times.
    That said, I have serious doubts about how in-depth and studied the apparent upcoming Amazon/Netflix or whatever series will be. We'll see I guess.

    I will definitely have to read it. Everything so far on the case has come from the newspapers and they aren't giving anything up, if they actually found something noteworthy.

    Netflix would produce a TV show based on this excellent book, here are a list of roles have been cased:
    Amy Ryan: Mari Gilbert (Excellent choice)
    Gabriel Byrne: Richard Dormer, the police commissioner (good choice)
    Thomasin McKenzie: one of Mari's daughter, I hope not Shannon Gilbert, because she looks nothing like Shannon, so more likely one of Mari's younger daughters, maybe Sherre?
    Lola Kirke: Kim Overstreet, of course, she definitely is an excellent choice for Kim Overstreet

    I do know Liz Gatbus directed the Diane Schuler documentary. I thought she did a good job presenting a fair, unbiased account of what happened, what MAY have caused it and her back story. If she is taking on the LISK/Lost Girls case, I hope she does tne same - and presents all the facts and tie-ins. Though saying that, I haven't seen anything else by Garbus and this is MOO just based off her Schuler documentary.

    I myself have read Lost Girls numerous times (to the point I need a new copy now) and loved it. I am a Long Islander and thought most of the LI facts were accurate.
