Publisher's Summary

Sam Morpeth is left to fend for her younger sister when their mother goes to prison. But when a stranger begins to blackmail her online, she's drawn her into a trap she may not escape alive.

Reporter Jack Parlabane is indebted to a volatile source, and now that debt is being called in, it could cost him everything. Thrown together by a common enemy, Sam and Jack are about to discover they have more in common than they realise - and might be each other's only hope.

Want You Gone is the superb new psychological thriller in the best-selling Jack Parlabane series. Award-winning best seller Chris Brookmyre is at his best yet with this nail-biting story.

What the Critics Say

Praise for the Jack Parlabane series:

"Reminiscent of the best of Nordic Noir but with its own vivid landscape." (Renee Knight, author of Disclaimer)

    "Clever but really an utter bore?"

    Others will love and I can't help admiring the skill and intelligence of the author, but really? Obvious that the writer has done his homework ... feels like an old guy getting down with the kids! Tedious.

    "So disappointing"

    This was a real disappointment- since finding Chris Brookmyre have really enjoyed his books, some I've even read a couple of times just to make sure I got all the jokes, and I've cried with laughter, but this was soooooo tedious. The Black Widow was the novel that you could perhaps compare with this but that was brilliantly plotted and moved along nicely.

    For me this was so poor I eventually returned the book. It won't stop me getting his next one especially with the Audible returns policy, but if I don't have the credits I might pick something else first.

    The narration, by the way, couldn't be faulted.

    Story
    "don't know why the title is different from the US?"

    Another just Jack being criminal, determined, soppy and always wearing the white hat. Not so sure I'm keen on the woman's voice but main female character would be worth exposing to nerdy teenagers for discussion about female/gender roles in society. Where to next for Jack?

    "Gripping"

    The book was clever as you would expect from brookmyre and I was hooked from the start. Great twists and turns, with Parlabane on form.
    If only the narration had matched the female reader was annoying to listen to and did spoil some of my enjoyment

    "My favourite author never disappoints!"

    Love it! More real and relateable than some of his former stuff methinks. Loved it!

    Story
    "His worst book so far"
    Would you listen to Want You Gone again? Why?

    I would not - poor story, poor characterisation, poor plotting


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The sister with Down's syndrome


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

    Not really - this does not elicit sympathy


    Any additional comments?

    This must be Brookmyres's worst book to date - lazy and poorly written - where has the Christopher Brookmyre od old gone?
