I had the same problem:

L4D2 was installed earlier.
Suddenly did not show up anymore under "installed" games. (including some other Source games)
It was still available as an uninstalled game. (double click would cause reinstall - I aborted that)

I fixed it by restarting Steam. See if that works for you.

I restarted steam, restarted my computer, verified game cache. No dice. Un-installed the game but now it's telling me it's still installed and I can't re-install it. And before anyone suggests it yes I have deleted the steam folder for L4D2. So god knows what the hell the problem is.

After restarting the PC, just restarting Steam didn't help, it showed up and loaded into a multiplayer just fine. Sorry you're still having trouble Critter.
