Review: Here and Gone by Haylen Beck

June 27, 2017


Here and Gone is a gripping, wonderfully tense suspense thriller about a mother's desperate fight to recover her stolen children from corrupt authorities.. It begins with a woman fleeing through Arizona with her kids in tow, trying to escape an abusive marriage. When she's pulled over by an unsettling local sheriff, things soon go awry and she is taken into custody. Only when she gets to the station, her kids are gone. And then the cops start saying they never saw any kids with her, that if they're gone than she must have done something with them... Meanwhile, halfway across the country a man hears the frenzied news reports about the missing kids, which are eerily similar to events in his own past. As the clock ticks down on the search for the lost children, he too is drawn into the desperate fight for their return.

**** 4 STAR REVIEW ****


This is one of those books where you need to stay in the dark about it until you read it. The synopsis alone should draw you in. It drew me in!


I kept asking myself, "What am I reading? Do I want to keep reading?". And I asked myself these not because the book wasn't good, but because I wasn't sure if I wanted certain things to happen that seemed to be moving in that direction. 


Let me tell you, the heroine in this book is a bad ass! With everything that she has gone through to get her children safe, then them being taken and disappeared, she does what any mother would do...


For a thriller, this was definitely a page-turner. Everyone knows that I love some big plot twists. There weren't necessarily any of those, but I definitely didn't see some things coming that did.
