Publisher's Summary

To save her only brother, Andrea Finch must face down a criminal mastermind, the FBI, and her own demons in this thrilling novel from the author of the best-selling Tracers series.

Police detective Andrea Finch is a rising star in her department until a split-second decision derails her career. Disgraced and disillusioned, she’s on leave from her job when she gets an urgent call from her younger brother. She’d prefer to ignore his latest plea for cash, but this time instinct tells her something is very wrong. Andrea’s search for answers takes her to a dusty Texas border town where danger lurks in plain sight and nothing is quite what it seems.

FBI agent Jon North is working undercover in west Texas investigating an unsolved murder that may be linked to a broader plot. But when the evidence points to Andrea’s brother, Jon finds that persuading the stubborn cop to help will be harder than cracking his toughest case.

Andrea must find a way to do what’s right while protecting her only sibling. As the clock ticks down on a deadly plot, Andrea and Jon race to confront a heartless killer who will stop at nothing to deliver a final, terrifying message.

    Story
    "Below expectations"
    What disappointed you about Far Gone?

    I really liked the earlier books by Laura Griffin and was looking forward to Far Gone. However, although I can understand that the heroine is frightened of relationships, proud, feels responsible for her brother and all happens very quickly, I often hoped for a more professional conduct by her (since she works as a detective, too). The end, after the showdown, also seemed rushed to me.
    I also had problems with the narration. At the end of the sentence, often the voice of the narrator went up instead of down or stayed the same. Furthermore, I had difficulties discerning the parts presented from the perspective of the main heroine, Andrea, from those of another main female character, Elizabeth which was sometimes confusing until the name of the person doing s.th./thinking s.th. was mentioned.


    Would you recommend Far Gone to your friends? Why or why not?

    The suspense plot with this idea of home terrorism was quite good. I also liked the hero.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Candace Thaxton’s performances?

    Not necessarily.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment

    Story
    "Hopscotch Plot - Makes No Sense"
    What would have made Far Gone better?

    A plot that stayed cohesive...actually making some sense.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Candace Thaxton?

    Probably


    What character would you cut from Far Gone?

    Too many to keep up with....


    Any additional comments?

    I hardly made it past the first hour before giving up. It hopscotches all over the place and did not engage me enough to want to figure it out.

    "Painful narration"

    This story of homegrown terrorism isn't necessarily terrible. It lacks character development and more details to make the plot stronger and pull in the reader. The real shame is the narration. The narrator's cadence throughout the book ruins everything. The inflection at critical parts was completely off and made the exciting parts flat and rushed. Truly irritating.
