Author(s): Lisa Gardner
A stunning new thriller from the author of Alone
When someone you love vanishes without a trace, how far would you go to get them back?
For ex-FBI profiler Pierce Quincy, it's the beginning of his worst nightmare: a car abandoned on a desolate stretch of Oregon highway, engine running, purse on the driver's seat. And his estranged wife, Rainie Conner, gone, leaving no clue to her fate.
Did one of the ghosts from her troubled past finally catch up with Rainie? Or could her disappearance be the result of one of the cases they'd been working - a particularly vicious double homicide or the possible abuse of a deeply disturbed child Rainie took too close to heart?
Together with his daughter, FBI agent Kimberly Quincy, Pierce is battling the local authorities, racing against time and frantically searching for answers to all the questions he's been afraid to ask.
One man knows what happened that night. Adopting the moniker from an eighty-year old murder, he has already contacted the press. His terms are clear: he wants money, he wants power, he wants celebrity. And if he doesn't get what he wants, Rainie will be gone for good.
GONE is the perfect follow-up to build on the success of ALONE, the novel that moved Lisa into the major league of thriller writers. Praise for ALONE: 'There is an impressive air of gathering menace in this thriller...not a book you'd want to read alone in a dimly lit place.' The Guardian. 'a fine novel full of twists' The Independent on Sunday. Lisa Gardner is going from strength to strength and gets fantastic praise: 'A high-octane, nerve-jangling tale of suspense' Harlan Coben 'A dark, poweful tale of nerve-shattering suspense' Tami Hoag
Lisa Gardner sold her first novel when she was just 20 years old. In 1993 she graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in international relations. She lives with her husband in New Hampshire.
