Summary

When Charlotte Sawyer is unable to contact her step-sister, Jocelyn, to tell her that one her closest friends was found dead, she discovers that Jocelyn has vanished.

Beautiful, brilliant - and reckless - Jocelyn has gone off the grid before, but never like this. In a desperate effort to find her, Charlotte joins forces with Max Cutler, a struggling PI who recently moved to Seattle after his previous career as a criminal profiler went down in flames - literally. Burned out, divorced and almost broke, Max needs the job.

After surviving a near-fatal attack, Charlotte and Max turn to Jocelyn's closest friends, women in a Seattle-based online investment club, for answers. But what they find is chilling. When her uneasy alliance with Max turns into a full-blown affair, Charlotte has no choice but to trust him with her life. For the shadows of Jocelyn's past are threatening to consume her - and anyone else who gets in their way.

Very pedestrian

The idea for the story seemed interesting and it had the potential to be, but every single emotion, thought or action of both the heroine and hero is described in agonisingly long drawn out detail, and to make matters worse repeats itself over and over and over again. I started skipping through sections the story and every time I started again there she was she describing a thought or feeling. Turned out it was a (predictable) romance story and not even a good one at that.

Jayne Ann Krentz is back on form

Would you listen to When All the Girls Have Gone again? Why?

Well, I can answer this question easily as I have already listened to it twice and I am currently reading the book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of When All the Girls Have Gone?

I can't say without spoiling the ending - sorry.

Have you listened to any of Amanda Leigh Cobb’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I found Amanda Leigh Cobb's voice very pleasant to listen to, she managed to differentiate between all the various characters so you always knew who was talking. It compares very favourably to her other performances.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes absolutely, unfortunately one has to sleep sometime.

Any additional comments?

I am a fan of Jayne Ann Krentz, having read nearly all her novels over the course of many years.She is well and truly back on form, some of her recent novels (while still good reads and ten times better then some other authors who could do with the services of a decent editor) have not been up to her normal standard. Interesting characters,great story with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing until the very end. Excellent.

Another fantastic story

The characters come to life off the pages of the story. With a mystery and romance thrown in to boot. The plot has twists and turns, keeping the reader unable to put the book down, until the final pages. Great characters and plot. Fell in love with the characters and of course the romantic suspense. Can't wait to see if there is a sequel???

Hope there is more in this lIne!

Different flavor...

I read the story once and felt like there were a lot of details I didn't weave into the plot at the time. Maybe it was me and distractions in my life.

About a week later I was stuck waiting for someone and decided to go back through the beginning of the story.

I was surprised when got totally sucked into these people, their passions and fears and secrets! Definitely a 5 when I can enjoy a book this much on a 2nd run through.

I enjoy most Jayne Krentz' books in all her timeframes. This left me wanting more. NOW! Please. It is going to be hard waiting.

A different Jayne Ann Krentz

I love Jayne Ann Krentz. I have most of her books. This story didn't have her usual sense of humor. The story was interesting, and it held my attention to the end. It might have worked better as a book, rather than recorded. The conversations between Max and Charlotte seemed sometimes unrealistic and not up to JAK's usual standard. It also didn't help that Charlotte's "voice" was weak and whiny. Her constant whimpering "how could I have missed that...how could she do that to me..." was just annoying. Finally, there was quite a lot of profanity. It might have worked in the written word, but it seemed gratuitous and awkward on the recording. All in all, it was a good story, and I liked Max, but I don't recommend it as read aloud. Read the book.

Pleasantly surprised

I had never heard of this author but thought I would give it a try.. very glad I did!! Kept my attention throughout entire book! Hope there is a sequel to Max's quest to find the man he has been searching for since he was a child !

Another great one from JAK!

I loved this book. The thread of family runs deep in this story, along with mystery and romance!! I highly recommend this book.

For a B&B borrowed read

This came close to a two but picked up after the half way point. This would be perfect for a book you pick up while on winter break at a B&B in the mountains.

very disappointing

Ms. Krentz has been a favorite of mine for many years, but this is not even remotely up to her standards. I actually went back to look at the copyright; I thought perhaps it was one of her first efforts and had been re-released. The characters are dull; the dialogue is boring, and there's no chemistry between the heroine and hero. I'd recommend any of her other books over this one.

Good storytelling...

The writing was perfectly paced, the characters were believable, and the ending was satisfying. There were a few surprises thrown in along the way, as well. The narrator did a wonderful job of voicing each character, and the story kept me interested.

I have enjoyed every book written by this author and have read or listened to every single thing she has written by each of her pen names. Ms. Krentz is an 'automatic' read for me. She never disappoints.
