Description

Eight years ago, thirteen-year-old Julie Whitaker was kidnapped from her bedroom in the middle of the night.



In the years since, her family have papered over the cracks of their grief - while hoping against hope that Julie is still alive.


And then, one night, the doorbell rings.



Gripping, shocking, and deviously clever, Good as Gone is perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train and The Ice Twins - and will keep readers guessing until the final page.

Review quote

"Compelling and emotionally nuanced." - The Seattle Times


"Both a mother-daughter and a family-under-fire story, GOOD AS GONE is laden with confused identities and a thrumming plot.." - Bustle


"Debut novelist Gentry delivers on genre expectations with crisp, unobtrusive writing and well executed plot twists." - Kirkus Reviews


"Clever perspective changes give Gentry's debut building suspense...Fans of Paula Hawkin's The Girl on the Train will enjoy the shifting points of view and the complex female characters." - Booklist
