Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
Now available in paperback from one of the most acclaimed authors in the thriller genre--praised as a "maestro of the sinister" by the "New York Daily News"--Mo Hayder delivers her most excruciatingly suspenseful novel to date. By turns thrilling and horrifying, "Gone" follows the investigation of a brilliant and twisted carjacker with a disturbing game to play.
Detective Jack Caffery's newest case seems like a routine carjacking, a crime he's seen plenty of times before until he realizes the sickening truth: the thief wasn't after the car, but the 11-year-old girl in the backseat. Meanwhile police diver Sergeant Flea Marley is pursuing her own theory of the case, and what she finds in an abandoned, half-submerged tunnel could put her in grave danger. The carjacker is always a step ahead of the Major Crime Investigation Unit, and as the chances for his victims grow slimmer, Jack and Flea race to fit the pieces together in time.
"Gone" is Mo Hayder at her terrifying best. Each dark and captivating twist reveals a new dimension to this tight-knit plot, burrowing deeper into the chilling and clever world Mo Hayder creates.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2010-10-01)

DI Jack Caffery and Sgt. Phoebe "Flea" Marley, a police diver, return in Hayder's latest thriller. This is the fifth appearance for Caffery, who debuted in Birdman, and the third for Marley. The events of the previous novel, Skin, have eroded their personal and professional relationship, and Marley and her team are under scrutiny. A new case brings them together, and the two struggle with their partnership and with the brutal criminal they face.

What appears to be an accidental kidnapping during a carjacking turns more sinister when the child is not released, a pattern of similar attempted incidents emerges, and they receive a letter from the kidnapper outlining what he's done and what he's planning.

Verdict: Readers who can tolerate some graphic descriptions of violence (or skim past them) will be rewarded with a complex, fast-paced, well-written mystery with interesting characters fighting personal and external demons. Recommended for those who enjoy Karin Slaughter and John Connolly.
