Here and Gone had it’s slow moments with character development but once you got into the book, it was a page turner. Audra Kinney is on her way to California with her two small children, 10-year old Sean and 6-year old Louise. She gets pulled over for a routine traffic stop in a small Arizona locale where crazy stuff happens – she gets charged with marijuana possession with intent to distribute. Now her kids have disappeared and the Sheriff tells her there weren’t any kids in the car when she was pulled over.
Quite a mystery but I have to say, Audra wasn’t an especially likable character and her problems just got….old. With the exception of the novel Broken Harbor by Tana French (which was well written), I avoid books where kids are kidnapped, missing or worse. I won’t be getting more books with that thematic element.
