Publisher's Summary

Meet Roy Ballard, freelance videographer with a knack for catching insurance cheats. He's working a routine case, complete with hours of tedious surveillance, when he sees something that shakes him to the core. There, with the subject, is a little blond girl wearing a pink top and denim shorts - the same outfit worn by Tracy Turner, a six-year-old abducted the day before. When the police are skeptical of Ballard's report - and with his history, who can blame them? - it's the beginning of the most important case of his life.

    Story
    "Creepy Fun right from the start!"
    If you could sum up Gone the Next in three words, what would they be?

    Suspenseful, unpredictable, sarcastic


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gone the Next?

    Learning about Roy's background - how his lost child gave him a personal stake in finding the little girl.


    What about Johnny Peppers’s performance did you like?

    I liked the pacing of the narration.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed at times at some of Roy's comebacks. He obviously has a need waiting to be fulfilled.

    "Here One Minute..."
    What made the experience of listening to Gone the Next the most enjoyable?

    The protagonist was awesome. Very engaging main character.


    What about Johnny Peppers’s performance did you like?

    It didn't sound like a performance. His reading blended so well with the story it was like a movie in my head.


    Any additional comments?

    Just a note that there are two story lines going on here. Past and present. I think Mr. Rehder does a good job signaling but just be aware.

    "Great listening"

    Great listening, definitely kept me from falling asleep behind the wheel stuck in commuter traffic ! Witty and at times hilarious dialog.
    Suspense throughout the whole book

    "Horrible Reading Voice"

    Gave up by chapter 4, narrator lacks expression and phrasing. Monotone voice sound computer generated.

    "Not for me"

    It's not fair for me to give this book a review. I simply can't read books about vulnerable children.

    Story
    "Narration makes all the difference"

    Story often difficult to follow because of the narrator's lack of pauses between key events, and the use of only one voice throughout. It would also have been a lot less tedious a listen if narrator would have used different voices.

    "gone the next. ..child kidnapping"

    I would give this story a 5 star rating but I'm put off by the use of profanity. Thankfully, it was more limited.
    The narrator did a good job. made it easy to listen to, with the right amount of tension. No loose ends when the story was done.
