LoveReading View on Gone, Baby, Gone

Lehane creates believable and vulnerable characters, even the good guys have their faults. A child has gone missing without a trace, drug money has gone missing too. Are the two connected? And then another child goes missing. This is one of Lehane’s best and can be read without having read his previous novels. Shocking and haunting it will keep you glued til the end.

 

February 2010 Guest Editor Simon Kernick on Gone, Baby, Gone

A beautifully written and crafted thriller, packed with twists and turns, and containing probably the tensest shootout scene I’ve ever read, as well as several of the most terrifying characters. But it also has real heart, with an ending that is absolutely gut-wrenching.

Gone, Baby, Gone Synopsis

Kenzie and Gennaro have been hired to find four-year-old Amanda McCready, abducted from her home without leaving a trace. Despite extensive news coverage and dogged investigation, the police inquiry has so far uncovered nothing. The case is rife with oddities: Amanda's strangely indifferent mother and her dangerous, drug-addled friends; her loving aunt and uncle; and two cops who have found so many abused or dead children they may already be over the edge.As the Indian summer fades, Amanda McCready stays gone - banished so completely that she seems never to have existed. And when a second child disappears, Kenzie and Gennaro face a local media more interested in sensationalizing the abductions than helping to solve them, a police force seething with lethal secrets, and a faceless power determined to obstruct their efforts. Caught in a deadly tangle of lies and betrayal, they must confront the horror of what the world can inflict on its children in order to unravel a riddle that's anything but child's play.
