Publisher's Summary

Sam Morpeth is left to fend for her younger sister when their mother goes to prison. But when a stranger begins to blackmail her online, she's drawn her into a trap she may not escape alive.

Reporter Jack Parlabane is indebted to a volatile source, and now that debt is being called in, it could cost him everything. Thrown together by a common enemy, Sam and Jack are about to discover they have more in common than they realise - and might be each other's only hope.

Want You Gone is the superb new psychological thriller in the best-selling Jack Parlabane series. Award-winning best seller Chris Brookmyre is at his best yet with this nail-biting story.

    "Clever but really an utter bore?"

    Others will love and I can't help admiring the skill and intelligence of the author, but really? Obvious that the writer has done his homework ... feels like an old guy getting down with the kids! Tedious.

    "So disappointing"

    This was a real disappointment- since finding Chris Brookmyre have really enjoyed his books, some I've even read a couple of times just to make sure I got all the jokes, and I've cried with laughter, but this was soooooo tedious. The Black Widow was the novel that you could perhaps compare with this but that was brilliantly plotted and moved along nicely.

    For me this was so poor I eventually returned the book. It won't stop me getting his next one especially with the Audible returns policy, but if I don't have the credits I might pick something else first.

    The narration, by the way, couldn't be faulted.

    Story
    "His worst book so far"
    Would you listen to Want You Gone again? Why?

    I would not - poor story, poor characterisation, poor plotting


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The sister with Down's syndrome


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

    Not really - this does not elicit sympathy


    Any additional comments?

    This must be Brookmyres's worst book to date - lazy and poorly written - where has the Christopher Brookmyre od old gone?

    "Best Brookmyre in a while"

    While I have enjoyed every Christopher Brookmyre book I have read, none have lived up to the first one (in my case all 'fun and games until somebody loses an eye') Until now. This was a great story expertly told and read. It kept me guessing until the end and kept me on the edge of the seat the whole way through. I cannot recommend this book enough. If you have never read any Christopher Brookmyre before this, be prepared for a treat as you go back through all of his back catalogue. You will want more...

    "Good but not Great"

    Starts off at great pace but ends up with lots of exposition rather than action.
