LoveReading View on Gone

A gripping read which keeps you guessing for most of the book.  It is the story of a hunt for a missing woman and child, with red-herrings galore.  Pierce Quincy, a retired FBI profiler and who has featured in previous stories, is married to the missing woman.  With his younger daughter (also in the FBI) we enter a race-against-time as they pick their way through the mass of conflicting evidence.  It is very tense indeed.  Highly recommended.

Similar this month: None but try Sara Paretsky.
Comparison: Tami Hoag, Laura Lippman.

Gone Synopsis

For ex-FBI profiler Pierce Quincy, it's the beginning of his worst nightmare: a car abandoned on a desolate stretch of Oregon highway, engine running, purse on the driver's seat. And his estranged wife, Rainie Conner, gone, leaving no clue to her fate.

 

Did one of the ghosts from her troubled past finally catch up with Rainie? Or could her disappearance be the result of one of the cases they'd been working - a particularly vicious double homicide or the possible abuse of a deeply disturbed child Rainie took too close to heart? Together with his daughter, FBI agent Kimberly Quincy, Pierce is battling the local authorities, racing against time and frantically searching for answers to all the questions he's been afraid to ask.

 

One man knows what happened that night. Adopting the moniker from an eighty-year old murder, he has already contacted the press. His terms are clear: he wants money, he wants power, he wants celebrity. And if he doesn't get what he wants, Rainie will be gone for good.

 

As the clock winds down on a terrifying deadline, Pierce plunges headlong into the most desperate hunt of his life, into the shattering search for a killer, a lethal truth, and for the love of his life who may forever be gone.

About Lisa Gardner

Lisa Gardner was our Guest Editor in January 2011 - click here - to see the books that inspired her writing.   Lisa Gardner has made a name for herself writing very dark novels but the first books she wrote were romance novels – but she decided that she wanted to write suspense books ‘where she could kill lots of people’.   She had various jobs ranging from waitress to management consultant but loathed morning commutes, claustrophobic cubicles and unsympathetic bosses. The only good things were my coworkers and a fresh appreciation of Dilbert cartoons. Lisa now lives in ...
