Publisher's Summary

Growing up, Will Klein had a hero: his brother Ken. But when Will's former girlfriend was found raped and murdered in her family's basement, Ken is considered the prime suspect, and disappears. Ken's disappearance has lasted for ten years, defying an international manhunt. He has been presumed dead. Now, Will's mother, on her deathbed, tells Will that Ken is still alive. At the same time, Will's current girlfriend disappears, and Will finds that she is not all that she seemed. With this dual mystery to solve, Will is drawn closer and closer to darkness, and to a chilling secret that causes him to reconsider what he knows to be true about Ken, his girlfriend, and himself.

    "Excellent twists and turns"

    Don't really understand the few negative customer reviews this book received. This is the third Coben book I've listened to and they keep getting better. I had one of the major twists figured out about three quarters of the way through the listen (the final twist) but the other twist surprised me. Coben created some really evil characters in this book. Or did he? That's all I can say about it without providing a spoiler. Also, I found the narration right on. The reviewer who complained of an indistinguishable monotone throughout must have listened to another book. Marosz didn't have extreme variations in tone, but you certainly knew when certain characters (John, e.g.) were speaking. I can't wait until if and when Audible gets the audio problems with another of Coben's books (Just One Look) ironed out so I can download and listen to that one. Spend a credit on Gone for Good. It's definitely worth the listen.

    "Very interesting book"

    The book keeps your interest and is a first rate mystery. Maybe too many twists, but put your analytical magnifying glass aside and its a great story.

    "What an Audiobook should be!"

    This is about as exciting and mysterious as possible, and it is read by a master.

    Can't wait for the next unabridged Coben.

    "Coben Can REEEEELY Tell A Story"

    More twists than spiral staircase, yet the all lead to a well plotted end. The characters are interesting and even tug at heart strings at times. If you're looking for a nice gym/pool/driving listen that will entertain you throughout.... This will do it. This was my first Harlen Coben. I'll listen to another, especially if it's read by Jonathan Marosz.

    "A rollercoaster ride"

    I really enjoyed this book. Althought the story line seems to be all over the place at times and you find yourself wondering how it could ever all come together for an interesting ending, it does. And no matter how you think it will end, it doesn't end that way at all. Many, many twists & turns and then, and then....well, I guess you'll just have to read it to find out. Enjoy.

    "Fantastic Story"

    This book was recommended to me, I, in turn, recommend it to anyone that would like a good thriller. Narration was superb. The story kept me on the edge of my seat throughout and I actually shed a tear of joy at the end. Great read!

    "Narration Annoying"

    I enjoyed the story but did not like the narrator's reading of the story. He sounded the same all the way through-whether he was talking about being beaten up, his lover, his long-lost brother, or the fruit basket brought over by a neighbor. I almost gave up. I think this narrator might have done better reading the few chapters in the book written in 3rd person, and a younger, more enthusiastic reader should have read the parts in 1st person. I will check the next book I download, and will not download one by this narrator.

    "Good story, terrible narrator"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Probably not, I liked the book although not Harlan Coben's best.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Kept you on your toes - it seemed to wrap up too soon only to take a sharp turn at the end.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jonathan Marosz?

    Scott Brick. Jonathan Marosz is a terrible narrator, I had to play at the "faster" setting on my iPod to make it tolerable to listen to.


    Was Gone for Good worth the listening time?

    Yes

    "Good Stuff !"

    I decided on this book based on prior reader reviews. I thoroughly enjoyed it. As mentioned before, many twists and turns through the very last minute. Some surprised me, a few I had suspected. The narrator didn't detract from the reading. He wasn't the greatest but you get used to it and it doesn't take away from the story at all.
