Publisher's Summary

In this electrifying and fast-paced tale of suspense from the New York Times best-selling author of the acclaimed Cash Landing, Cane and Abe, and Black Horizon, Miami criminal defense lawyer Jack Swyteck takes on his first death-row client since The Pardon in a case as twisty as it is shocking.

Sashi Burgette vanished three years ago on her way to school. The night after the teenager's disappearance, ex-con Dylan Kyle was stopped for drunk driving. An article of Sashi's clothing was found in his truck, and a police videotape of his drunken explanation under interrogation sealed his fate at trial. Now, just days from Kyle's execution, Sashi's mother visits Jack Swyteck, who's doing pro bono work at the Freedom Institute, and delivers shocking news: "Sashi called me."

The police dismiss the call as a cruel hoax. The state attorney refuses to consider the new evidence, insisting the case is closed. The governor has already signed the death warrant. An innocent man may be executed, and time is running out - unless his lawyers can locate Sashi.

A man of principle who believes in justice, Jack jumps into the investigation. But the deeper he digs, the more he discovers that nothing is what it appears to be. Not the victim. Not her alleged killer. And definitely not Sashi's parents, whose grief ruptured their marriage, each openly blaming the other for what happened to their daughter.

As their gut-wrenching and hopelessly conflicting version of events unfolds in a Miami courtroom, it becomes clear there is something even more difficult to find than a long-missing girl....

The truth.

Excellent legal thriller with great narration

Gone Again is the 12th novel in the 13 novel Jack Swyteck legal thriller series. Like the other audio novels in the Jack Swyteck series I have listened to it is excellent and almost justifies a 5 star rating. There is no doubt that the narration of Jonathan Davis earns a 5 star rating. I do recommend the novels in this legal thriller series.

Did The Missing Girl Call Her Mother? Or A Hoax...

This is an interesting story where one girl disappears, and later in the story, another girl is seemingly kidnapped. Both girls are the daughters of divorced and feuding parents. Both parents are suspects. This is a real twister. Throughout the story, I thought Mom was crazy and thought Dad was the true suspect. What is the truth? Of course we know from the beginning that a man is about to be put to death for seemingly murdering of one of the girls.

I enjoyed this story but found it needed more background information on the family as a whole so that as the story unfolds, the listener could buy into the buildup to finale. The ending was a bit lackluster, in my opinion, and was hard for me to reconcile with the rest of the story as it was told.

Jonathan Davis is a top notch performer. He elevates stories he narrates.

Full of Twists & Turns

This is my first book from this Author but definitely won't be my last. At times you didn't know who or what to believe.

"Cruel"

Would you listen to Gone Again again? Why?

sorry, but I own over 150 new stories not yet heard, so no not in the near future.
This was a compelling story about a girl whose cruel/ autism spectrum actions caused so much heartache in so many other peoples lives.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

You, just didn't know who to believe. This aspect kept you glued to the listen. In my opinion the editor should have reduced the number of times the name "Sashi" was said. Frankly, it got on my nerves. The author may have used it to keep you tuned into the missing girl.

What does Jonathan Davis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I love Mr. Davis reading talent. See Sandra Brown's Mean Streak, not to be missed. (I did re-listen 2 x's) As a result of that read, I have tried so many new author's, including this author, just for the opportunity to hear Mr. Davis read.
He doesn't disappoint in this book.

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

yes, I did, what a long day! With all the twists and turns, I wanted to know. I did use the new 1.25x speed so the action matched the author's intent.

Any additional comments?

Please Audible, this is not an author I like a lot, but I just don't get enough Jonathan Davis choices to listen ( Mr. Davis does lots of Sci Fi) so I am forced to buy this author just to get a chance to hear Mr. Davis read. He is that good.

Very good until it wasn't

Intriguing premise, and a real "page turner" –– then it completely fell apart at the end, with an unsatisfying solution that revealed almost the entire rest of the book as a truckload of red herrings.

So very good! But some harsh moments

I really like JG’s style. You get caught up right in the middle of events, and although you can have suspicions, everything is possible!!

BUT, I disliked the bad language used a lot is this book (compared to the other one I read of JF): it was hard for me to stay with the story at these times.
And I was quite annoyed at the voice the narrator (otherwise really good) uses for women in general, and especially the heroine (Debra): it makes her sound constantly very melancholic and, yes, stupid.
