Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“It’s a tribute to Hayder’s powers as a suspense writer that she completely turns the over-familiar premise of this novel inside out and upside down. The more pages of Gone that we captivated readers turn, the farther away we get from clichéd thriller conventions.” Washington Post
“Chilling... Shocks are in store.” New York Times Book Review
“Riveting…The meticulously crafted plot is heightened by Hayder’s skillful evocation of mood…A captivating thriller.” Booklist (starred review)
“[An] artfully constructed procedural…the visceral thrills don’t come at the expense of character. By giving her villain the intelligence to inflict as much emotional as physical pain, Hayder makes him less of a monster and more of a terror.” New York Times
“A complex, fast-paced, well-written mystery with interesting characters fighting personal and external demons.” Library Journal
“An artfully constructed procedural…The visceral thrills don’t come at the expense of character. By giving her villain the intelligence to inflict as much emotional as physical pain, Hayder makes him less of a monster and more of a terror.” New York Times
“Riveting…Hayder keeps the tension high…The meticulously crafted plot is heightened by Hayder’s skillful evocation of mood as she summons the specter of a highly intelligent criminal who is taking great satisfaction from every parent’s worst nightmare. A captivating thriller.” Booklist (starred review)
“A brilliantly plotted mystery that keeps you guessing not only who the villain is, but what exactly he’s after…First-rate mystery that takes full advantage of the wintry, moonlit West Country and the unusual skills of its lady diver.” Kirkus Reviews
“In addition to the creepy intellectual satisfactions of Hayder’s plot, the setting here is agreeably terrifying…It’s a tribute to Hayder’s powers as a suspense writer that she completely turns the over-familiar premise of this novel inside out and upside down. The more pages of Gone that we captivated readers turn, the farther away we get from clichéd thriller conventions.” Washington Post
