Editorial Reviews

Stephen Upton
As someone who made a living writing ads that strived to arrest and hold readers, I appreciate the gripping prose and captivating descriptions found in Tucker Mayer’s novel Little Girl Gone. In addition to his clever and well reasoned plot, Tucker’s subtle references to Shakespeare and the classics makes this riveting read compelling on more than one level. Expect fast moving action, cloudy mystery, and memorable characters. And, be prepared to hold on to your hat.

    This thriller grips you from the very beginning with its fast-paced story and many twists and turns. Whilst not for the faint-hearted, containing shocking scenarios and violence throughout, I found it to be the perfect novel from my point of view! As I was reading, I was visualizing the action as a movie in my head, and enjoying the story ‘on the screen’.

    The lead character of the book, Pete Zwicker, is an ex-Marine who gets himself into a spot of bother after returning from active service, and has to spend a few years in jail. He is abruptly released and sent on an unofficial mission by ‘the powers that be’. His quest takes him from the US to Canada and then to South America, trying to solve a series of mysterious occurrences which are being orchestrated by a Columbian government minister called Santes, who is the chief coffee baron in his country. He turns out to be an evil criminal who will stop at nothing to control his various business interests throughout the western world and beyond.

    Zwicker recruits a small team of helpers and they head off in search of three kidnap victims who they believe are being held at the stronghold of Santes in Columbia. The area is closely guarded and heavily fortified but they are able to gain entry. However, their plans go awry and a battle for survival ensues between Zwicker’s team and the small army that Santes has in place for his protection. The action moves out to sea, and vessels from both the US and Columbian navies become involved in a fluctuating battle for survival.

    An excellent book, and I would recommend it highly to anyone looking for an enthralling, action-packed read.

    An exciting read!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this thriller novel. Captivating story line and characters you either want to root for or wish would die painful deaths. Cannot seem to find any other books by the author so that is the only downside.

    Highly recommend

    Thrilling, edge-of-your-seat plot that's anything but predictable and an engaging quirky, charismatic hero. I hope this is the first of a series; I can't wait to read the next one.
