I am a big fan of Jonathon Kellerman's books. They are usually tightly constructed psychological thrillers that examine the minds of criminals in the context of the ordinary individual's reaction to the crime. Gone is not one of those books. The plot is tired and the writing weak. Instead of Kellerman's usual thoughtful and deep analysis of the human condition, one is treated to a skim across the surface of what might have been an engaging story. The only thing that is "Gone" is Kellerman's usual style and finese. All that being said, it is still a good "read" once the listener sets aside expectations about hearing a classic Kellerman story.

This story lacked an edge. It was more like the Hardy Boys. Police liutenants sit behind desks not chasing leads. The psychiatrist is more involved than the cops. No surprise at the ending. I was tired of the head to toe description of every character crunched into a single paragraph. I was glad I listened to the abridged version.
