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.

Worse than a waste of time

Great narration! The story has too many characters and fails to notify the listener who is speaking or being spoken to. This novel is really a mess.

- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"

Awful

I can't express how disappointed I was. I had a long drive and was so excited about this book, judging by how raving the reviews were.

The only reason it got one star (that and I cannot give it zero) was the narrator. She did a lovely job and wasn't annoying like some.

Storyline had no twist. I waited all day to find the "thriller" part of the story, and there was none. I cannot believe this was compared with Gone Girl and Girl On The Train. Those books were LIGHTYEARS better than this garbage.

I won't spoil it because I hate it when people do that, but let me just say as the story unfolds and details are revealed, the offense of the author was astounding. I have half a mind to write her personally and express my distain.
