Books Worth Buying: Gone For Good

2 Aug

For our next installment of “Books Worth Buying”, I have chosen Gone For Good by Harlan Coben. Yep, another thriller. (In all fairness, I have told you that I LOVE thrillers) This one holds a special place in my heart, because it is the first Harlan Coben novel I had the pleasure of reading.

It is also a gateway drug.

Once I read Gone For Good, I sought out the rest of his work. So far, I have only read the stand-alone novels, and they are all stellar.

A haunting tale of secrets and betrayal… and of one man’s search for his missing brother that spirals into a breakneck hunt for a killer, a victim, and the truth.

Gone for Good is at once a powerhouse of suspense and a haunting tale of love—the love between brothers, between lovers, between family members. It is one of those rare thrillers that not only make the pulse pound, but stir the heart as well. – Synopsis courtesy of

Description: As a boy, Will Klein had a hero: his older brother, Ken. Then, on a warm suburban night in the Kleins’ affluent New Jersey neighborhood, a young woman—a girl Will had once loved—was found brutally murdered in her family’s basement. The prime suspect: Ken Klein. With the evidence against him overwhelming, Ken simply vanished. And when his shattered family never heard from Ken again, they were sure he was gone for good.

Now eleven years have passed. Will has found proof that Ken is alive. And this is just the first in a series of stunning revelations as Will is forced to confront startling truths about his brother—and himself. As a violent mystery unwinds around him, Will knows that he must press his search all the way to the end. Because the most powerful surprises are yet to come. – Courtesy of

I promise, you read this one and you will be hooked. Harlan Coben is one of my favorites for a reason. Go find out for yourself. Enjoy and Happy Reading!!
