Overview

Gone the Next by Ben Rehder

Meet Roy Ballard, freelance videographer with a knack for catching insurance cheats. He's working a routine case, complete with hours of tedious surveillance, when he sees something that shakes him to the core. There, with the subject, is a little blond girl wearing a pink top and denim shorts-the same outfit worn by Tracy Turner, a six-year-old abducted the day before. When the police are skeptical of Ballard's report-and with his history, who can blame them?-it's the beginning of the most important case of his life.

This is not one of those stories that half way through you can guess the ending or know who did it. All around great read. I loved it

Having reluctantly purchased an e-reader, preferring hands-on hard covers, I chose a free eBook just to try it out. What a pleasant surprise. I love my little $49 nook and this amazingly book! Why wasn't I aware of this talented author before? "Gone The Next" will not be the last book I read by Ben Rehder, and I must look for a copy of the next Roy Ballard mystery. Would definitely recommend this very fun and well-written novel.

This was a very good read! I skipped housework that desparately needed doing just to see if the girl would be found alive. It was suspenseful, but also humourous at times. It contains a little foul language and references to sex, but no descriptive or gratuitous sex scenes. Just a good mystery!

The interweaving of characters, plot and suspense made this a compelling read withsurprising twists,

Characters are described well had the feeling of knowing them personally. The headaches of abduction are so tragic it's hard to really explain, the who and why of an abduction can get way out of controlling as in this story. Mix in a marriage gone bad and it's sure to cause disaster. Very good read couldn' the put it down.

Fun, light reading. Don't appreciate swear words, but they're common in most of todays novels. I liked the flashback style, definitely saved the story...

When I read a book, it has to hold my attention, be well written, some humor, and have a good story line. Ben Reader has all this and more in this novel!

Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. A thriller of a mystery but laced with a good bit of not so subtle humor.

Good read but the constant attempt at humor was distracting.
