An intricate scheme to abduct the children of the most powerful politicians on Capitol Hill gets disrupted when Kerry Branson, ex-homicide detective turned private investigator, inadvertently rescues a six-year-old boy on a fog-laden backroad in the Piney Woods of East Texas.
When Kerry discovers the child is the son of a U.S. Senator kidnapped from his Austin home, her call to the FBI is just the beginning of her problems. Pursued by the gang of kidnappers who seem to know her every move, Kerry manages to connect with the FBI agent, Tracker Ryan Barr, sent to retrieve the boy.
As the abductions continue, Kerry and Ryan’s search for the children pits them against a formidable adversary who uses his wealth and political power to cloak a psychopathic obsession. His manipulation extends deep into the government even to the Office of the President.
A horrific plan slowly emerges—one that has drug cartels and terrorist groups lined up to cash in.

Five Stars:Readers' Favorite Review
"The shift in points of view is brilliant, and the author always leaves the reader at the end of each chapter wondering what will happen next; she always leaves the reader with a burning question in mind, which compels them to read further."
"Going Gone! is a page-turner, a story with well-developed literary elements, but the suspense was biting -- all the time."
"Readers will find themselves engaged in the story from the opening paragraphs and, as the clock quickly ticks down, will urge the team on to a conclusion that will leave them cheering!"
"One of those books that grabbed me from the very first page and refused to release me until I finished the whole book."
"Going Gone! by Anita Dickason is the best political thriller I have read in a long while. I was on the edge of my seat as I read and became involved in the case. I cannot say enough good things about this book. It is so well written, containing fantastic dialog,amazing characters, and an incredible plot that it is a must-read. Anita Dickason has quickly jumped onto my favorite authors list and I cannot wait to read more of her books."
"A tight and convincing noir thriller that would transition well to wider mediums, Going Gone is a step change from Dickason’s Sentinels Of The Night and commendably stronger for it."
"Fast-paced, the supernatural elements are pared-back with the focus on dense realism but her fans will be pleased to see there’s no diminution in the quality of Dickason’s prose or the excitement she generates."
"The plot is expertly handled and the writing is vivid and energetic with events unfolding in tightly focused chapters that take us to the crux of Dickason’s narrative and here again, she excels at ratcheting up the tension and developing well-nuanced characters."
"The ex-homicide detective turned private investigator Kerry Branson proves an authentic and intelligent lead whilst well –wrought dialogue brings a cutting edge to her relationship with Ryan Barr and together they work as a model for implacable storytelling."
"Given her background, it’s not surprising that Dickason is a detail writer and she confidently brings the procedural elements of her story to life whilst tossing us the occasional red herring as she lures us towards a slick denouement."
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Going Gone is a fast-paced crime thriller, guaranteed to have you hooked from the very first page. The mood instantly begins with a tense and frightening scene where a little boy attempts to escape his kidnappers. He stumbles out onto the street where a private investigator, Kerry, is on her way home from a weekend with her best friend. She quickly springs into action, determined to return the boy to his family. Forming alliances with FBI Trackers, Kerry quickly discovers that not everyone is who they seem. From here the story only becomes more intense as you delve into a world of FBI agents, kidnappers, terrorists and drug cartels. Many of the characters involved within the novel are integrated with the government and special task forces, giving the story a political twist. But who can you trust? Between the chaos and action thrown between the agents and investigators, the young boy Tristan provides an innocent visual amongst a world of darkness. This innocence provides a relief in the heavy plot line and is a beautiful reminder of how precious children are. With children’s lives on the line, you will feel even more invested in the outcome of the story and their fate. Anita Dickason paints a picture of the world of crime with such accuracy that you feel as though you are right there with the characters, rescuing children, hiding from criminals or driving away at high speeds with gunshots blaring in the distance. You won’t be able to put this novel down as each page takes you deeper and deeper into a world of criminals where confirmation of delivering packages will make your skin crawl. I would rate this novel a 5/5 and would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a fast-paced, crime drama that will be sure to get your heart racing.
