Gone by Lisa Gardner
Author Ann Hoehn
Tue 29 May 12
The abandoned car belonging to former police officer, Lorraine Conner, a.k.a. Rainie, is discovered in rural Oregon on a stormy November night. State police officer Carlton Kincaid heads the search for Rainie. Pierce Quincy, a former FBI profiler and Rainie’s estranged husband, is called in. Quincy's daughter Kimberly, an FBI agent, is called in, too. Together, these people try to find Rainie. The initial question on people’s minds is whether Rainie, an alcoholic, has killed herself. Before long, however, a kidnapper contacts Quincy with an odd ransom demand.
The story is told from the alternating viewpoints of Quincy's attempts to save his wife and Rainie’s struggle against her kidnapper. While a bit melodramatic, Gone is well plotted and has a good sense of place. Even though this is not a new title, I’d like to recommend it to those who like thrillers and police procedurals.
