Sarah Broadhurst's view...
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 by Lisa Gardner
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.
' The twists and turns in the book will keep you guessing up until the last page is read. First rate!'
'An ex-FBI profiler gets back on the case after his wife goes missing in mysterious circumstances. A nerve-jangler if ever we read one.' - MORE
'It's been a while since Gardner's fantastic Alone, but this follow-up makes the wait worthwhile.'
'a fast-moving crime thriller with lots of suprises' - WOMAN
