Publisher's Summary

Growing up, Will Klein had a hero: his brother Ken. But when Will's former girlfriend was found raped and murdered in her family's basement, Ken is considered the prime suspect, and disappears. Ken's disappearance has lasted for ten years, defying an international manhunt. He has been presumed dead. Now, Will's mother, on her deathbed, tells Will that Ken is still alive. At the same time, Will's current girlfriend disappears, and Will finds that she is not all that she seemed. With this dual mystery to solve, Will is drawn closer and closer to darkness, and to a chilling secret that causes him to reconsider what he knows to be true about Ken, his girlfriend, and himself.

Excellent twists and turns

Don't really understand the few negative customer reviews this book received. This is the third Coben book I've listened to and they keep getting better. I had one of the major twists figured out about three quarters of the way through the listen (the final twist) but the other twist surprised me. Coben created some really evil characters in this book. Or did he? That's all I can say about it without providing a spoiler. Also, I found the narration right on. The reviewer who complained of an indistinguishable monotone throughout must have listened to another book. Marosz didn't have extreme variations in tone, but you certainly knew when certain characters (John, e.g.) were speaking. I can't wait until if and when Audible gets the audio problems with another of Coben's books (Just One Look) ironed out so I can download and listen to that one. Spend a credit on Gone for Good. It's definitely worth the listen.

Very interesting book

The book keeps your interest and is a first rate mystery. Maybe too many twists, but put your analytical magnifying glass aside and its a great story.
