Editorial Reviews

Crescent Blues Book Reviews
And Then She Was Gone will enthrall you....Maggie Ryan will be a welcome addition to the literary detective force.
Harriet Klausner
readers will easily identify with the characters that feel like neighbors, friends, and relatives. This is what makes the novel even more frightening and unforgettable.
I love a Mystery
Romantic Times
And Then She was Gone is a real heart-in-your-throat page-turner. Every woman will empathize with the situation of a missing child and feel the terror of the Spencer family. McBride does a masterful job of creating harrowing situations, and Maggie Ryan is a character worth watching.
Thea Davis
...[I]ntroduces a dozen or more active characters, plus social issues such as child abuse and pornography...in a mere 238 pages. So, it's not surprising that the plot lurches along in short, choppy movements and that scenes, at times, shift abruptly. But despite this lack of flow and continuity, the book does provide action and an interesting small town setting.

What People are saying about this

Jeri Wright
This promising first novel features a likeable heroine and a suspenseful mystery...an enjoyable read.
— Jeri Wright, Author of Under the Covers
Martin J. Smith
Susan McBride hot-wired her first novel straight into my psyche. And Then She was Gone is rock-solid, well-researched and blessedly unpredictable with a heroine who's both extraordinary and refreshingly human. McBride writes with a practiced hand.
