“This was a pretty good read. I haven't read all of the books in the series, but this one worked just fine on its own. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it seemed the author wrapped the book up too quickly at the end.”see full review » see other reviews »

“Rainnie Connor has problems. She had an abusive childhood and currently is haunted by past cases and has a drinking problem. She disappears while on a late night drive, and team is formed to find her. Leading the team is Quincy, her estranged husband. The novel cuts back and forth between scenes of the police trying to find suspects, Quincy reaching out to his FBI agent daughter to help him find his wife, and of Rainnie in the hands of the kidnapper.
The are plenty of twists and turns in this fast paced novel. Rainnie is haunted by a past case of a murdered girl and her mother. I don't know if that was from a previous Gardner novel, but just the brief description it got in this book haunted me. "Gone" is an exciting kidnapping mystery. The excitement comes from the characters and their situations, not the plot's ultimate outcome.

“The characters from The Killing Hour move to Oregon and the mayhem continues. I like the Boston settings better, but this is a quick, interesting read.”Kathleen M. Filkins wrote this review Monday, February 18, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“I really liked this book and the pace was very fast. The only thing that drove me nuts while reading it was it seemed the author kept using the same two phrases 'good-news department' and 'bad-news department' over and over. Otherwise, I love her books!”Word Ninja wrote this review Friday, June 15, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
