Publisher's Summary

As a boy, Will Klein had a hero: his older brother, Ken. Then, on a warm suburban night in the Kleins' affluent New Jersey neighborhood, a young woman - a girl Will had once loved - was found raped and murdered in her family's basement.

The prime suspect: Ken Klein. With the evidence against him overwhelming, Ken simply vanished, spending the next decade as the elusive subject of rumors, speculation, and an international manhunt. When his shattered family never heard from Ken again, they were sure he was gone for good.

Now 11 years have passed. And Will, who always believed in his brother's innocence, has found evidence that Ken is alive - even as he is struck by another act of betrayal. His girlfriend suddenly disappears, leaving behind compelling evidence that she was not the person Will thought she was.

As two dark dramas unwind around him, Will is pulled into a violent mystery, haunted by signs that Ken is trying to contact him after all these years. Will can feel himself coming closer and closer to his brother...and to a terrible secret that someone will kill to keep buried. As the lies begin to unravel, Will is uncovering startling truths about his lover, his brother, and even himself. He knows he must press his search all the way to the end. Because the most powerful revelations are yet to come...

    "wow what a book!!!!!"

    If your ready for a thriller wait till you get a load of this one. this is the second Harlan Coben book I've heard, and it's no disappointment. When you think you know it all trust me you know nothing at all. In Gone for good as well as tell no one, its all in the last 2minutes of the book. There both great a must have!!!!

    "You can't stop listening"

    Harlan Coben is an exceptional writer. Gone for Good is truly his best work. A real page turner when I read it and just as compelling listening to the story. The narration adds a whole new dimension.

    "Too many characters"

    Characters enter the story and are linked with little notice. Good story but gets confusing at times

    "Watch out"

    This story is so-o-o predictable. And the elements of the situation are so-o-o hard to believe. Not nearly as good as the author's "Tell No One" which I thought was great.

    "Pretty good read"

    I found the villians to be a bit overdone. The plot twists were OK, but I found myself thinking at times that it was all too overboard. In all, though, it was entertaining.

    "AWESOME!!!"

    IM WRITING THIS IN CAPS TO EMPHASIZE MY DELIGHT WITH THIS READ. IT KEPT TWISTING AND TURNING AND THE SUSPENSE WAS TRULY UNEXPECTED. I COULDNT WAIT TO GET IN THE CAR, WORK OUT, TAKE A WALK WHAT EVER IT TOOK TO CONTINUE LISTENING. I GOT TO THE POINT OF JUST NOT MAKING UP EXCUSES, SO I LISTENED IN MY HOME. (TO THE READER WHO CANT FIGURE OUT THE LAST 30 SEC REFERENCE, YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO THE EPILOGUE ABOUT 5-6 TIMES TIL YOU CATCH WHO ITS TALKING ABOUT. CANT SPOIL IT FOR THE REST OF THE READERS)
    AGAIN..GREAT BOOK. ALOT BETTER THAT TELL NO ONE.

    "Gone for Good"

    Harlan Coben is a master storeyteller and this book is no exception. It is a MUST-READ book that has many, many twists and turns.

    "Pretty good"

    I enjoyed it. Only had one question - the last 30 seconds or so of the book - I didn't catch what he was referring to in the newspaper clipping. Any help? I must have missed something in the book to what this was referring to.

    Thanks.
