Publisher's Summary

Thirteen-year-old Julie Whitaker was kidnapped from her bedroom in the middle of the night, witnessed only by her younger sister. Her family was shattered, but managed to stick together, hoping against hope that Julie is still alive. And then one night: the doorbell rings. A young woman who appears to be Julie is finally, miraculously, home safe. The family is ecstatic - but Anna, Julie's mother, has whispers of doubts. She hates to face them. She cannot avoid them. When she is contacted by a former detective turned private eye, she begins a torturous search for the truth about the woman she desperately hopes is her daughter.
Propulsive and suspenseful, Good as Gone will appeal to fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, and keep listeners guessing until the final minutes.

Great narration to this unraveling mystery!!

I LOVED this book. Very well told, interesting characters and questions, multiple perspectives, non linear storytelling. The unraveling of past and present simultaneously. And truly amazing narration. The different voices of each character felt truly each their own. I really enjoyed this audio book!

A gripping story well-told.

The story takes you in from the very first chapter and doesn't let go. Alternating timelines unfold in a way that keeps you guessing. It shares some elements in common with other immensely popular novels (especially Gone Girl and Girl on the Train), so this would likely be enjoyable to people who liked those. The performance is also excellent - the actor's voice is pleasant and she provides just enough character in the voices to give them color without being distracting. This is an excellent summer listen, but watch out: I got sucked in and ended up listening to all 7 hours in 2 days!
