Publisher's Summary

November, and evening is closing in as DI Jack Caffery arrives to interview the victim of a stolen car. The man who's stolen the car has also taken an eleven year-old girl.

And she's still missing. Sergeant Flea Marley has heard about the car-jacker. He's done it before, she tells Caffery. Twice. Only previously he's let the girls go.

A day later the car is found. Inside, there's a letter: “It's started”. And Caffery knows that soon the jacker will choose another random car, the only important thing being the girl in the back seat. Caffery's a good and instinctive cop but this time the jacker seems to be ahead of him - every step of the way....

    Love having someone read me a story. Fires in the hearth, rain on the roof, sunny days and surf. Good friends, good food and J S Bach.

    Story
    "Winner of Edgar Award for 2012"

    This is my introduction to Mo Hayder.

    I have just downloaded a second of her books. Interested? Yes I am.
    The characters are plausable.
    The story is interesting and a little scary,

    It is a part of a series and the most recent available on Audible.
    So perhaps, in my not being familiar with what has gone before I may
    be losing something. Keeping that in mind I also figure a story can
    hold its own.

    For me though Mo Hayder is good enough to listen to a second of
    her books in the series.

    In a way she is setting her own style in letting her characters be
    themselves and I do find that interesting. While the series does follow
    a main character, the story line and plots explores how people do
    respond to and react to others and how this influences what happens next.

    No super hero as such, but a team with a team leader is viewed in action.
    The ideosyncratic motivations and interactions are followed, and so there
    are sub plots. It is these that I expect do develop through the series.

    "Excellent listening for busy people"
    If you could sum up Gone in three words, what would they be?

    Good British Thriller


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gone?

    Always when they save the victim


    Which character – as performed by Andrew Wincott – was your favorite?

    Flic


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the police arranged the sting which led to the end of the monster


    Any additional comments?

    Good book for me as I travel by air a lot, and actually look forward to waiting for take-off etc so that I can catch up.

    "Gripping"

    This is one of those rare books that I couldn't put down and had to listen to at the expense of everything else.
    Very emotive especially to anyone who has a child. The narrator was great at the different accents.
    I like that the romance didn't take over the novel. It's a crime novel first and foremost.
    Highly recommend for anyone who enjoys British crime novels

    "A Well Constructed Plot"

    This is one of the best detective stories I have read (or heard!). It was well-read and the plot was gripping - couldn't put it down. I have pre-selected two more Mo Hayder books for next month. Admittedly the ending was a little 'Hollywood', but I didn't mind as it was so well constructed and I enjoyed the twists in the plot.

    "Gone....but not forgotten"

    I had previously read all of Mo Hayder's earlier books. ('Birdman' and 'Tokyo' are both brilliant.) This was my first audio version of one of her books. Initially I wasn't too keen on the reader's voice but then I thought that this might be because I already had my version of Jack Caffrey and Flea Marley's voices in my head.
    The story is excellent and I raced through it. I came to enjoy the narrator's voice and would thoroughly recommend this book. It's one of those stories you can't get out of your head.

    "Not as good as previous books by the same author"

    I really enjoyed the two earlier books I read by this author, but this one is not to the same standard. The ending, in particular, was disappointing - especially after the gritty realism of the earlier books - and descriptions are often repetitive (many faces are 'ashen', for example). The narrator, too, as other reviewers have pointed out, is distracting, and more suited to children's books than to an adult thriller. I still recommend the earlier books, though - I thought they were excellent!

    "Excellent"

    Hanging Hill was the first of Mo Hayders books that I experienced so I decided to try some other titles including Gone, which I thought was first rate. My only criticism is that I have noticed that not all Mo Hayder titles are narrated by the same author, which is a shame as I find my images of the characters link to the voice of the narrator (in this case, Andrew Wincott) and it would be an improvement to always hear Inspector Caffrey (for example) keeping the same voice in all the books. However, the plot was superb... I couldnt wait to keep going although I didnt want the book to end.

    "Frightening"

    Dont read this if you are claustrophobic or afraid of the dark. It's quite depressing and a bit far fetched in places but what else do you expect from this author. I'm glad I read the first Jack Caffrey novels though. It meant I knew all about his brother which the story keeps referring to. Good listen although I personally found the narration a bit annoying.

    "Not thrilling as thriller's go!"

    As said above, not really thrilling although I did want to keep lisening to find out the ending. For me it was too long and predicable. Would I read another of Mo Hayder's books? Yes, I would give the author another chance!

    "Another Great Mo Hayder Thriller"

    I couldn't wait to listen to this after listening to the previous two books in Mo Hayder's 'Walking Man' series. Once again the book was very well written, with an engaging plot and very likeable characters.

    I think I struggled more with the big twist than the rather surreal ending that some reviewers have commented on. I suppose it just took me time to 'process'. Nevertheless, another excellent thriller that I found hard to put down. I just hope that Mo Hayder will bring out another blockbuster in this most excellent series.

    "Enjoyable but......."

    This was rivetting stuff until the end when it all collapsed in a Hollywood style, hardly credible, schmaltzy ending. Shame because until then it was a great listen.
