Lost in America (book) by Johnnie MitchellLovelace Miller is a high end internationally known private investigator. Bi-racial, he had self identity issues growing up. Miller has learned to use his racial ambiguity to his advantage by becoming a master of disguise.
Miller takes on a case out of his usual realm. A college buddy, now a Chicago congressman, hires him to locate his drug addicted runaway daughter, Laura, who like Miller, is dealing with racial identity issues.
Miller learns that Laura is traveling with her drug dealing pornographer boyfriend and his demented  Gulf War vet partner. Miller soon discovers Laura is in more danger that she realizes. He knows he has to embark on a cross country chase to rescue her in time.
Lost in America is a mix of a tough, hard-edged crime story, and a literary novel dealing with racial identity, ethics, and a warped vision of achieving the American Dream.

About Johnnie Mitchell

US United States

When I first became a fiction writer novels were my first choice. But the market for my type of work suddenly fell through. I turned my attention to screenplay writing. With the advent of digital publishing, and a better marketplace I returned to book writing, hopefully with positive results.
