April 2017 Debut of the Month.

A clever, convincing, and unexpected tale. 13 year old Julie Whitaker was kidnapped from her bedroom eight years ago, her sister, mother and father, have been unable to move past that dreadful night, however a shock wave hits, blasting them all back into the present. Different names head up the chapters, different tales are told, only Mum speaks in the first person, creating a direct connection to her thoughts and feelings. Amy Gentry writes with a devious pen, things aren’t necessarily hidden, yet a cage of acceptance and preconception bends emotions and rattles ideas, just what is the truth? Even if you expect some of what is hurtling towards you, the writing still ensures that surprises lie in wait, ready to stop you in your tracks. Compelling and achingly satisfying, ‘Good As Gone’ thoroughly provokes, and flings endings and beginnings on their head. ~ Liz Robinson

'Debut novelist Gentry delivers on genre expectations with crisp, unobtrusive writing and well executed plot twists.' - Kirkus Reviews

'Clever perspective changes give Gentry's debut building suspense...Fans of Paula Hawkin's The Girl on the Train will enjoy the shifting points of view and the complex female characters.' - Booklist
