Here and Gone by Haylen Beck

One minute they were HERE and the next they were GONE

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.


I received a copy of this novel prior to publication and reviewed at the time but did not post to my blog… here is my review.

Here and Gone is a solid thriller with so much going on.  I found an excellent fast-paced read which I highly recommend. This book is a fast read & very hard to put down- just what I like!! The chapters end in such a way you just need to keep reading. Thank you to Harvill Secker and Haylen Beck for the opportunity to read and review this novel prior to publication.
