Publisher's Summary

Audra has finally left her abusive husband. She's taken the family car, and her young children, Sean and Louise, are buckled up in the back. This is their chance for a fresh start.

She keeps to the country roads to avoid attention and finds herself on an empty road in the Arizona desert, far from home. Looking for a safe place to stay for the night, she spots something in her rearview mirror. A police car is following her, and the lights are flickering. Blue and red.

As Audra pulls over, she is intensely aware of how isolated they are. Her perfect escape is about to turn into a nightmare beyond her imagining....

Dark secrets and a breathtaking race to reveal the truth lie at the heart of this enthralling thriller.

    "6 stars! Suberb!"

    This story is not what is to be expected from the description. A twist came early (much better than the usual cliched twists). I can say no more about it without giving spoilers. Suffice to say, I could not stop listening. The characters, dialogue, places and circumstances are exceptionally well written, and the narration may be the best I have ever heard (and I am not usually keen on American female narrators, as I find they are often nasal and high pitched). It's a wonderful book for anyone who enjoys crime fiction. My recommendation? Just buy it!

    Strong, gripping story line but a subject we don't like to think could happen.

    Story
    "Great read!"
    If you could sum up Here and Gone in three words, what would they be?

    Enthralling, exciting, believable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It kept me involved all the way throughout. Great story!


    What about Abby Craden’s performance did you like?

    Once I got used to her I loved her performance - different characters portrayed by subtle changes in tone and accent - really great.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The characters were all believable - but the obvious moment was at the end of the book - don't want to spoil it for other readers.


    Any additional comments?

    Enthralling, would have read in one go but work prevented that. So easy to pick up again and always left me wondering what next? Loved the narration - fitted perfectly once I got used to Abby Craden - she was great. Will be looking for more from this author and from Abby.

    "Excellent but scary!"

    The story is frightening. How does a lone and vulnerable mother fight an authority tainted with lies in order to save her children? The scary aspect is the feasibility of the story. It really could happen. Gripping me throughout, I listened way into the night and even when I awoke. An excellent author, super narrator and a brilliant audiobook. Clearly I loved it!
