Publisher's Summary

The most brazen terrorist attack in history. A country bent on revenge. A love affair cut short. A heart that never truly heals.

I knew on the day of the attack that our lives were changed forever. What I didn’t know then was that I’d never see John again after he deployed. One day he was living with me, sleeping next to me, making plans with me. The next day he was gone. 

That was five years ago. The world has moved on from that awful day, but I’m stuck in my own personal hell, waiting for a man who may be dead for all I know. At my sister’s wedding, I meet Eric, the brother of the groom, and my heart comes alive once again. 

The world is riveted by the capture of the terrorist mastermind, brought down by US Special Forces in a daring raid. Now I am trapped between hoping I’ll hear from John and fearing what’ll become of my new life with Eric if I do.  

From New York Times best-selling author, Five Years Gone is an epic story of love, honor, duty, unbearable choices and impossible dilemmas.

Outstanding!!!

Marie Force has done it with a stand alone novel that is full of all the writing ability this lady has to make a story come to life. The performers are outstanding and so glad she waited for them to do this one for her. All the emotion of the story was brought to life through their voices!

Timely, emotional and a fantastic listen

I loved this book. The narration is fantastic. The story, wow. Each chapter is told from a different persons perspective and experience. I defy anyone to get through this without a tear or having a hard time to put it down. Even though it is fiction the emotions, terror and feelings seem so very real. This is one of the best books I have listened to/read in a long time. Worth the credit and then some!

A great book to listen to

Marie Force has done it again!!! She drew me in to this story from the very beginning and has exposed so much emotion. This the first Marie Force book I have listened to on Audible and loved how Andi and Joe brought the characters to life. I highly recommend this book!!

Five Years Gone

I am left wanting; I really quite enjoyed the not knowing. Rooting for both, but mostly for Ava and everything she was put through. I always say I am not a fan of drama and this was more angst and limbo than drama.

I loved the back and forth, I even enjoyed the different POV’s I couldn’t stop listening I wanted no NEEDED to know what was going to happen.

I am left with an unsettling feeling of hope, loss, and understanding. I love that Marie made me feel so much.

The narration is FANTASTIC, I did get overloaded on Andi for a while and she is a great narrator don’t get me wrong but it was starting to be where all the books she narrated were blending. So I am glad I took an Andi break and I feel like I forgot what a great narrator she is and so is Joe oh lord that man’s voice. I swear.

FIVE YEARS GONE, PLEASANT SURPRISE.

Story written in such away that kept you on edge. After reading every Fatal book in the series twice I was overcome by the sensitive, edgy nature of this book. I hope that we will hear from the family again.

5 WONDERFULLY AMAZING STARS!

This story has all the feels. There's love, there's loss, there's heartbreak, there's joy, happiness, betrayal, healing, emotional blackmail, acknowledging your responsibilities towards others, and I could go on, and on, and on. I just couldn't stop listening until I got to the end. There was a point that I didn't think I was going to be happy with the ending no matter what choices were made, but I was pleasantly surprised to have been wrong. I did like the way everything was handled at the end. Lovely epilogue. This will be a repeat listen for me.

A Thought Provoking Story

Marie Force does it again. A really good story that makes you sit back and think how you would react given the same situation. This is, I feel, three stories in one.
Performed by two great narraters who help bring the story to life.
