One poor decision will haunt her forever. 

Macy Mercer only wants a little independence. Eager to prove herself grown up, she goes to a dark, secluded park. She's supposed to meet the boy of her dreams who she met online. But the cute fifteen year old was a fantasy, his pictures fake. She finds herself face to face with Chester Woodran, a man capable of murder. 

Distraught over his own missing daughter, Chester insists that Macy replace his lost girl. He locks Macy up, withholds food, and roughs her up, demanding that she call him dad. Under duress from his constant threats and mind games, her hold on reality starts to slip. Clinging to her memories is the only way of holding onto her true identity, not believing that she is Chester's daughter. Otherwise she may never see her family again. 

Gone is the first novel in the Gone saga, a trilogy of psychological suspense thrillers. If you enjoy page turning suspense with constant twists and turns, then you'll love this nail-biting read.

    Incredibly stupid! There is no conclusion; the writer just stops writing. It receives one star only because it would not send with zero stars.

  • Slow

    By 1FedUpGramer
    The book was slow and got repetitive. Even boring at times, lets hope the others pick up.
  • Good

    This was a great book and kept me interested. The ending was absolutely horrible. It was like the author just stopped writing! It’s really too bad because I would have purchased the next book, but there wasn’t any closure or anything solved
  • Don't waste your time

    By Ridleys mom
    Dear author, Are you 12? Because this is the type of story a pre-teen would write. Do yourself a favor read any of Karin Slaughters books and learn from one of the best. These characters are poorly formed and shallow. The plot just keeps circling the drain. The adults are stupid and the teenager knows about Stockholm's syndrome. Good thing it was free
  • Awesome Book

    By Mr. Doge faced Pooskay
    I love the story, but there’s a reason I rated 3 and not 5. 2 to be exact, they both deduct points. 1, it’s to short, I can read it to fast, and the other books cost money, the money that I don’t have. 2 The part with Macy’s REAL family is to short. I’d love to have a book about their perspective, not just have it in a short part. Like, if you do my idea, make it a series. Not just 1 book, 1 for the 3 books (I think). AND make the first one free, and, if you don’t want to, don’t give credit to me. I wish someone could gift me the 2 books that involve Macy (the 2 OTHER) but that isn’t happening.
  • Ok read

    By sexikaykay
    I like it but very slow took me 3 months to read. I usually take only a week if it is a really good book. I think it was to many character point of views she just needed to keep with the one character I feel. I really don’t know if I want to to read the second one if it’s going to be like the first. Overall it was ok
  • Wish the second book was free!

    Sehr Gut!
  • Gone

    By Marketing major
    Some will see themselves at certain ages. The sweetest, saddest, joyful moments of life with our families. Gone should be read by both parents and children with today's addiction to social media. A story of how both should remain vigilant for their safety, yet a captivating story instead for a lecture.
  • Depressing

    By Fishing apps.
    If you like depressing, no point in telling the story, you will like this book. I can't understand the value of a plot that simply shows the terror one man brings to a young girl and her grieving family. No redeeming values, it just continues to be sickening and depressing. I won't read the follow up books as I doubt this writer has a feel good bone in her body.
