The BlurbHere and Gone is a gripping, wonderfully tense suspense thriller about a mother's desperate fight to recover her stolen children from corrupt authorities.. It begins with a woman fleeing through Arizona with her kids in tow, trying to escape an abusive marriage. When she's pulled over by an unsettling local sheriff, things soon go awry and she is taken into custody. Only when she gets to the station, her kids are gone. And then the cops start saying they never saw any kids with her, that if they're gone than she must have done something with them... Meanwhile, halfway across the country a man hears the frenzied news reports about the missing kids, which are eerily similar to events in his own past. As the clock ticks down on the search for the lost children, he too is drawn into the desperate fight for their return.
March hasn't been a particularly prolific month for my reading. Birthdays, Visits from Parents, Kids, Moving house, you know the drill, real life have all gotten in the way.
However the books I have read have been amongst some of the best I have read, Here and Gone is no exception. Set in the run down and forgotten Arizona wilds, the story plays on every Parents nightmare. At times its a harrowing tale that made me put the book down for a bit. The story and moves a good pace with well written characters that come to life with realistic dialogue. I thought Danny was a great character who could quite easily have his own series of books, the new Jack Reacher?
A great fast paced thriller that will keep you hooked and wanting more.
