Publisher's Summary

When someone you love vanishes without a trace, how far would you go to get them back?

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 Rainie's troubled past finally catch up with her? 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 alias of a killer caught 80 years before, 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.

Sometimes, no matter how much you love someone, it's still not enough.

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.

    "Two-star narration"

    I honestly can't tell you what I think of the content of the book, b/c for the entire listen, I was distracted by the narration. The narrator's voice is simply harsh and unpleasant -- that is, her "normal" reading voice. And then there are her male voices -- simply atrocious. She sounds like grade school kids trying to sound like men. Interestingly, the only sound she did well (eerily on-target)was a mechanical voice.

    I hate to be so negative, but I had to force myself to listen to this book since I didn't want to waste the credit. The story earns 3 stars, best I can recall.

    "2 credits !!!!"

    Why is this book 2 credits?.... It is only a 10hour unabridged title. Not worth it.

    "Narration awful! Couldn't finish!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I love Lisa Gardner's books in general, but I couldn't get through this book due to the narrator, so I can't give a fair rating to the story.


    Has Gone turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narration was awful! The voice changes, the inflections, everything was wrong. I really tried to keep listening, thinking I would get used to her like I have others with other books. Nope, never did, never will. Maybe it was just this book for her, but it was awful.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    At this point I can't say what because really, truly, I was trying so hard to suffer through the narration and telling myself I will get used to her, that I can't remember a whole lot about whether or not there was.


    Any additional comments?

    I will try reading the book, it's possible I will like the story itself. The narration was so awful, it ruined listening to the book for me.

    "Good listen"

    Pretty darn good little mystery-thriller -- Gardner is usually a good bet for a good "read" . Also Anna Fields does a wonderful job of narration but it's a little creepy listening to her read the part about a basement flooding (just too sad)

    "Hard to listen to"

    Since I already paid for it at some time in the future I intend to finish it. I only made it about an hr into the story before I found myself another book, Anna Fields just kills the whole story. Her voice doesn't change depending on who is speaking so I keep finding myself lost on what character is saying what. Some how a character from the west coast has a southern accent.

    "Intolerable narration"

    I returned this book. The narration was completely intolerable. I have now found a narrator worse than Scott Brick. It's Anna Fields

    "Good Book, good story, recommend"

    This is my second Lisa Gardner book, I enjoyed it. The story was interesting and i never expected the ending. The narrator is ok but didn't do the child voice so well. I would recommend this book if you like suspense.

    "Exciting"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, if they're into thrillers. Lisa Gardner is always good.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. It's not your typical story. This is not a feel good easy to listen to book. You have to actually pay attention. You have to think.


    What about Anna Fields’s performance did you like?

    Love her.....all her stuff...always have. I hate knowing she will never be able to do new ones. Thanks Anna :)


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. Too long.


    Any additional comments?

    Gardner always writes great stories. They are funny, sad, dark, exciting..in a word complicated. You never know just how it's gonna end. She doesnt always leave you feeling happy. I like happy, that's why it did not get 5 stars.
