Total page turner. Absolutely loved it!!!! ( )

Airplane reading.

Rainie Conner, one-half of an investigative team that specializes in profiling, disappears. Her car is found on the side of the road, door open, engine running. Her estranged husband, Pierce Quincy, is the other half of the team and he is desperate to find her.

Rainie has a troubled past. Perhaps it is one reason she pursued law enforcement as a career. It may also be the reason she disappeared.

Quincey and his daughter Kimberly, an FBI agent herself, latch onto the official investigation into his wife's disappearance, and neither will rest until she is found.

Plenty of suspense and hints into Rainie's past. Enough to keep one reading. ( )

This was a very intense read! I loved it! I could not figure out who the culprit was and it did surprise me. I will definitely read more books by this author. ( )

Rainnie Connor has problems. She had an abusive childhood and currently is haunted by past cases and has a drinking problem. She disappears while on a late night drive, and team is formed to find her. Leading the team is Quincy, her estranged husband. The novel cuts back and forth between scenes of the police trying to find suspects, Quincy reaching out to his FBI agent daughter to help him find his wife, and of Rainnie in the hands of the kidnapper.

The are plenty of twists and turns in this fast paced novel. Rainnie is haunted by a past case of a murdered girl and her mother. I don't know if that was from a previous Gardner novel, but just the brief description it got in this book haunted me. "Gone" is an exciting kidnapping mystery. The excitement comes from the characters and their situations, not the plot's ultimate outcome.

Gone is a tightly written thriller where Raine Conner, the wife of former FBI profiler, Pierce Quincy, is abducted. A day later, a troubled little boy who Raine had been working for is also abducted leaving Pierce, his FBI agent daughter, Kimberly, and the local police frantically looking for her. The abductor contacts a local reporter in order to negotiate with him and always seems to be a step ahead of Pierce and the police. Meanwhile, Raine is off anti-depression medication and despite her police training is hardly in shape to save herself.

I enjoyed this novel for a variety of reasons. For one, it was action-packed and fast-paced. There was always some new clue or level of drama being introduced in the story. The characters had their flaws, but were also fairly compelling. Raine has to deal with her alcoholism as she’s dealing with trying to free herself and the boy. Easy drama and tension are created by the race the police have to do against time in order to save them. I read a lot of thrillers and many of them tend to blend together, but this is one of the better ones.

High-tension, fast-paced thriller, packed with sex and violence -- seemed thoroughly OTT to me. I found it difficult to read, both for the tough US crime-fighting jargon and the size and weight of the 342-page hardback. Typical lines - "Fuck it. She let go of his wrist and clamped down hard on his forearm with her teeth. `Aaaaaaagh!' her captor said." "The world was filled with shit. And the only way Quincy knew how to deal with it was j! ust to keep shovelling." (And such a nice young girl the author looks from her photograph)
I can't imagine any reading group discussing this enjoyably or profitably.
