More About This Book

Overview

After his blockbuster success of Little Black Girl Lost, and Little Black Girl Lost II Keith Lee Johnson takes us back to 1950's New Orleans, into the world of betrayal, envy, lust, and murder, where everyone has ulterior motives. The past resurfaces in this third installment of the life and times of seventeen year old Johnnie Wise. Truth has its consequences and Johnnie has a lot to answer for. The innocent girl we met in the first installment of this compelling series is gone; all that remains is the self-absorbed, self-righteous courtesan who is now complicit in three murders. She is surrounded by enemies who will stop at nothing to see that she pays for her past indiscretions. Two-hundred and fifty thousand dollars of the money that Sharon Trudeau (Johnnie's Stockbroker) stole is missing-the money Bubbles gave to Johnnie after killing Sharon in a Fort Lauderdale Hotel. The cops think Johnnie's involved and they want answers. Someone has to answer for Sharon's murder. Will Johnnie land on her feet again? Or has her luck finally run out?

    Ebony's Review

    This was the best book I've read in years, and I read over 100 books a year. I could not put the book down and would not have if I didn't have to at times. The characters take you on a journey through their lives and there isn't a dull moment at all. This is a must read for everyone. At the end you will want more which the author will be giving us this February.

    Great Book

    This is the story of a sweet, church-going, fairly innocent young child in a very good recreation of 1950's New Orleans. Her mother, however, is a prostitute whose ideas of preparing her daughter for adulthood are a bit unmotherly, to say the least. Young Johnnie takes to prostitution like a duck to water..with a twist. She uses her brains as well as her body to make a little profit. And even more twists follow. One thing for sure, Keith Lee Johnson can weave a tale and this book is no exception. Mr. Johnson has a flair for telling a story that never ends the way you think it will and that is his trademark. You can rest assured that if you read one of his books, you will not be bored, you will be on the edge of your seat, good guys remain good guys and consequences will be paid by those who deserve them. This is truly a good story with a little bit of everything...history, murder, greed, anger, jealousy, sex, prejudice, and even love. Well worth the time to read. The saga of Johnnie Wise continues with this book and another great job by Keith Lee Johnson.

    I Love This Series

    This entire series was amazing from the first to the last! I am hoping Keith Lee Johnson has something more in store with Josephine Baptiste and more books like this...that really delve into our history and have our culture and generations to come wanting to learn more about our heritage.

    A Intense Historical Fiction book

    Enter 1950¿s New Orleans a time full of lust, betrayal, envy, and murder. <BR/><BR/> ¿Little Black Girl Lost was a Historical Fiction novel that had a lot of historical moments in time. Johnnie Wise the protagonist. Was just fifteen years old when her mother introduced her to a world she¿d never dreamt of becoming. <BR/><BR/> In the book Mr. Johnson discussed the murder of Emmet Till, bombings of all black establishments in the black wealthy part of New Orleans. Mr. Johnson also discussed the issue about lynching of the Ku Klux Klan. <BR/><BR/> Little Black Girl Lost will leave you breathless, shocked, and wanting more! <BR/><BR/> Aysia Rucker <BR/> Battle Creek Mi.

    Desire for more and more of Johnsons book

    This book, little black girl lost, written by Keith Leee Johnson has been one of the best books I read in a while, the author did an excellent job of describing the characters, and every chapter you read made you want to read more and more of the book, because you never knew what was going to happen next. Keith Lee Johnson was superb in his writing by making sure his story was matching some realstic details from the 1950's.

    BEST BOOK EVER

    THE LAST BOOK I READ WAS OVER 18 YEARS AGO. THIS BOOK TAKES YOU ON A JOURNEY. I COULD SEE MYSELF BEING JOHNNIE. I WISH THERE WAS PART 2 OF THIS BOOK. I COULDN'T GET ENOUGH OF IT. I WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS TO JOHNNIE AND LUCAS. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK. KEITH REALLY DID HIS THING WITH THIS ONE. I HAVE SHARED THIS BOOK WITH MY CO-WORKERS AND THEY LOVED IT.

    Very Good!!

    The book starts out a little slow, but picks up rapidly!!...It kept my attention. As u follow Johnnie through her life, u actually will see things the way she does, even when she's wrong...we all make mistakes and try to justify them. I highly recommend this book, and i'm looking foward to reading more work from the author!

    A book for thought

    This book was something tht was so true of this time period. This shows that a mother will do anything to keep their family going or to better her own life. I shows that some people do not care about the feelings of others and put themselves ahead.
