Publisher's Summary

Growing up, Will Klein had a hero: his brother Ken. But when Will's former girlfriend was found raped and murdered in her family's basement, Ken is considered the prime suspect, and disappears. Ken's disappearance has lasted for ten years, defying an international manhunt. He has been presumed dead. Now, Will's mother, on her deathbed, tells Will that Ken is still alive. At the same time, Will's current girlfriend disappears, and Will finds that she is not all that she seemed. With this dual mystery to solve, Will is drawn closer and closer to darkness, and to a chilling secret that causes him to reconsider what he knows to be true about Ken, his girlfriend, and himself.

    "Excellent twists and turns"

    Don't really understand the few negative customer reviews this book received. This is the third Coben book I've listened to and they keep getting better. I had one of the major twists figured out about three quarters of the way through the listen (the final twist) but the other twist surprised me. Coben created some really evil characters in this book. Or did he? That's all I can say about it without providing a spoiler. Also, I found the narration right on. The reviewer who complained of an indistinguishable monotone throughout must have listened to another book. Marosz didn't have extreme variations in tone, but you certainly knew when certain characters (John, e.g.) were speaking. I can't wait until if and when Audible gets the audio problems with another of Coben's books (Just One Look) ironed out so I can download and listen to that one. Spend a credit on Gone for Good. It's definitely worth the listen.

    "What an Audiobook should be!"

    This is about as exciting and mysterious as possible, and it is read by a master.

    Can't wait for the next unabridged Coben.

    "Very interesting book"

    The book keeps your interest and is a first rate mystery. Maybe too many twists, but put your analytical magnifying glass aside and its a great story.

    "A rollercoaster ride"

    I really enjoyed this book. Althought the story line seems to be all over the place at times and you find yourself wondering how it could ever all come together for an interesting ending, it does. And no matter how you think it will end, it doesn't end that way at all. Many, many twists & turns and then, and then....well, I guess you'll just have to read it to find out. Enjoy.

    "Good Stuff !"

    I decided on this book based on prior reader reviews. I thoroughly enjoyed it. As mentioned before, many twists and turns through the very last minute. Some surprised me, a few I had suspected. The narrator didn't detract from the reading. He wasn't the greatest but you get used to it and it doesn't take away from the story at all.

    "Twists & Turns"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes, the story was interesting & kept me engaged until the end.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gone for Good?

    The ending.


    What three words best describe Jonathan Marosz’s voice?

    Nasal, ill fitting


    Do you think Gone for Good needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I don't think this book needs a follow up. The ending was just right.


    Any additional comments?

    I just didn't enjoy the fact that you could hear talking in the background as the narrator spoke. That was annoying, distracting, and made me feel as though this book was not professionally made.

    "Fantastic Story"

    This book was recommended to me, I, in turn, recommend it to anyone that would like a good thriller. Narration was superb. The story kept me on the edge of my seat throughout and I actually shed a tear of joy at the end. Great read!

    "Mystery buffs can't miss"

    My first Coben book; complex storyline that holds your interest and sets up the surprise twists nicely; can definitely see why this author has been decorated with awards; no qualms in my recommendation; unabridged for sure.
