    1. OH MY GOODNESS is all I really need to say about this book, but I'll try and say a bit more. I thought the last book I read by Lisa Gardner (The Killing Hour) was a page turner which it was, but this was so much more. Talk about a fast paced, edge of your seat, twists and turns this book had the absolute lot plus more. Gone is the fifth book in the Quincy & Rainie series and boy, what a fabulous series it is. I've probably said this before in my other reviews, but I'll say it again, Lisa Gar [...]

    2. Haunted by the actions of rapists and murderers, particularly those who have escaped conviction, Rainie Conner, an ex-police officer turned private investigator, finds justice in the bottle she has avoided for fifteen years. When her husband, fellow private investigator Pierce Quincy, has had enough, he abandons her, hoping she will realize only one road lies ahead and it leads to AA.Rainie is kidnapped, while taking yet another sequential wrong turn, and discovers everything she has taken for g [...]

    3. Waking from another heart-stopping nightmare, shaking and lonely, Rainie Connor knew she wouldn’t, couldn’t sleep again that night, so dressing hurriedly, she headed out into the pouring rain to go for a drive. Driving around aimlessly seemed to settle her – she had always done it, and supposed she always would. But the devastation and loneliness wouldn’t leave her – it had only been seven days, but it felt like forever…Across town, Pierce Quincy, ex-FBI profiler was pacing the night [...]

    4. There is a saying in Alcoholics Anonymous "Sobriety is a daily reprieve contingent upon my spiritual condition". In previous books in the series Rainie appeared to be an alcoholic but never said the words and never attended an AA meeting. She would play games with a bottle of Bud Light and then pour out the contents. For an alcoholic a very dangerous game. In their profession Quincy & Rainie have seen many horrific things. Now it appears as though one case has pushed Rainie over the edge. S [...]

    5. Gone is an electrifying, quick pace novel, spanning over a non-stop 48-hour period.Pierce Quincy, an ex-FBI profiler, takes a call from the local Bakersville sheriff office, claiming to have found his wife’s car; abandoned and off to the side of a dirt road with the drivers door wide open, gun missing and his wife, Lorraine (Rainie) Conner, gone.Quincy knew Rainie was distraught prior to her disappearance; she had a drinking problem, there were family issue and her recent separation from Quinc [...]

    6. I got to the middle of the book and I was in no mood to continue. I don't know what it is about this book but it's like a deja vu. The kidnap, the evil thoughts Nothing original. Focusing on that dark world of evil people & those feelings of being powerless, clueless; maybe those were too much for me. It's supposed to be fast-paced and yet I thought the story evolved so slowly. I didn't feel like continuing. Anyway after a few days I picked it up again and persevered. I really don't think it [...]

    7. Wow!!! All I can say is how have I missed this brilliant crime/thriller novelist for so long?Lisa Gardner has written a ripper of a roller coaster thriller. It had me twisting and turning and staying up well into the night to finish it. It was not in the least predictable and right to the end I had no idea what the outcome would be, which for me is my idea of the perfect crime/thriller novel.The fact that this was the 5th in a series no way at all detracted from the story line or made me feel th [...]

    8. Great suspense story and it was a good choice for an audiobook. I knew the bad guy as soon as he appeared but my opinion wavered at one point. Gardner does a great job at keeping you tuned into the story. I will go back and read some of the others in the series now as well!Feb 2017:re-read the epub version this time. I had forgotten some of the storyline and was pulled right back in!

    9. Really enjoyed this fast paced mystery. I do have a bad habit of reading series books out of sequence but that's usually when I borrow them from the library and there isn't a whole lot of choice - there are only three Lisa Gardner audio books there from different series and that is it!So, with that in mind I do feel like I missed out on a bit of background on Quincy & Rainie - it does work as a standalone story but I almost felt like I'd cheated and read a few spoilers by skipping the first [...]

    10. i did the audiobook, 85 percent of the characters in the book are male, and the voice was a female. It was painful to listen to her try to sound like 9 different men.

    11. This was one of my favorites of the series. The case itself kept me on my toes and had me gripping my e-reader for the last 20% or so. I also really loved the struggles and demons Quincy and Rainie are still fighting. It's one of the things I love about series that follow the same characters - being able to see the ups and downs of their personal journeys as well.

    12. This is second book of Lisa Gardner I have read. And love it why? Let me explainFirstly there are so big gaps begining of the story and there is no way you can guess who is who, and which charater is good despite clues or proofs with every page you find yourself in a situation which makes story more attractive than you can imagine.Quincy receives phone call about his wife's disapparance abrubtly in somewhere and hisrelationsip with his wife make you guestion his charater whether he is the man be [...]

    13. Gone by Lisa Gardner is apparently the 5th book about Rainie and Quincy. Hmpth. I hate that I read this one first, but can tell you that it doesn't really matter too much! ;) I wish in the book jackets they would tell you this stuff. This isn't the first series or author I've been mad when this happens to me. I mean, just told me, but I wasn't on when I was standing in the library looking at books!! Hmpth.We start the book with Rainie dealing with some terrible nightmares and the knowledge tha [...]

    14. GONE (Procedural/Suspense-Oregon-Cont) – VGGardner, Lisa- 8th bookBantam, 2006- HardcoverFormer policewoman Rainie Conner is haunted by memories of abuse, both to her, the many cases she has handled and the suspected abuse of a boy she knows The murder of a child is one too many and pushes her into alcohol abuse and away from her husband. Rainie’s husband, former FBI profiler Pierce Quincy, loves his wife, but hope to jolt her into sobriety by moving out. But when Raine’s car is found empt [...]

    15. I am loving this series! Each book in the series is so unique, but still adds to the series as a whole.I'm only going to say that in this novel Rainie gets kidnapped and held for ransom. The book is super intense and involves all of the past characters from the previous novels (Quincy, Kimberly and Mac). I enjoyed how Quincy was involved with the local police department and there were some good characters within the Oregon State police. I was really surprised by the kidnapper as well.

    16. So, unbeknown to me, I've picked up the fifth book in the series! While it does refer to things that have happened before (probably in other books), it really didn't matter much. In fact, I want to read the next one in the series before going back to read the ones before!OK, back to the story. Raine and husband Quincy are semi-retired FBI. Trouble, it seems, appears to follow them wherever they go. One rainy night, Raine goes missing and the ransom notes start arriving. The kidnapper wants fame [...]

    17. No. 1. The Keystone Kops handle the investigation;2. No one seems to have a problem with either an off-duty FBI agent or an off-duty cop from Georgia working a case IN OREGON;3. Candi (with an "i") enters, stirs the pot, and then is promptly relegated to tertiary character status;4. The city seems either big (a thriving newspaper) or small (a Wal-Mart that closes) depending on the scene;5. The local yokel goes bananas and kills someone, for some unknown reason;6. Hey, let's get a list of suspect [...]

    18. Wow, this was one of the most boring books I have read in a long time. I don't know why I even kept reading, maybe hoping it would get better. It finally picked up mid way but still fell short. I also didn't know that this was in a series. Maybe I would have liked it more if I had read the rest first, but I don't want to risk it. She was very repetetive with some phrases that I found very annoying.

    19. This book in the Quincy and Rainie series has been the most emotional to me. While all the books hit close to home with the couple this one hits in the home. After a week long separation Quincy finds that Rainie has been kidnapped and his world stops. While this book was much more emotional than others the crime aspect didn't thrill me as much. Maybe I never really expected Rainie to die (view spoiler)[ she doesn't die neither does the boy(hide spoiler)] and it took some of the thrill out of it. [...]

    20. Everything about this novel is just so damn terrifying. I read it every year leading up to Halloween because it's a long-standing favorite of mine. The great thing about this book is that you can read it stand-alone, so if you haven't read the first four Quincy & Rainie books it's not a problem. That being said, go pick up a copy of this book today! You won't regret it and you definitely won't forget it.

    21. Another excellent book in this series! I was mad at Rainie in the beginning but glad at the end lol Such a roller coaster ride!

    22. Okay, so I was a little perplexed (upset, frustrated) after reading the line "And [Quincy's] estranged wife, Rainie Conner, gone" in the synopsis before starting this one. I mean, we finished THE KILLING HOUR with a proposal, and now it's already over? Arg.But then the story, the events from behind the scenes, everything that's happened in the last two years, unfolding throughout the mystery of Rainie's disappearance, comes to light and I was still a little annoyed but I could also understand it [...]

    23. I enjoyed this book BUT It was my first Lisa Gardner read and I was quite impressed with her style. The story was fast-paced however the inconsistencies that annoyed me eventually degraded the book:-I recognized the killer the very SECOND he/she stepped into the picture-When the main character is trapped in the basement of an old house in the middle of nowhere, the killer decides to bust a pipe, and let them drown. Seeing as the house is in the middle of nowhere I presumed that it was serviced b [...]

    24. Not a bad read, my only problem with this series is too much back story in every book - I guess Ms. Gardner has done this so the books could in fact be stand alones although they aren't.Rainie has fallen off the wagon in so many ways, and now it could very well be her demise! The last half of the book was very fast-paced and suspenseful - the best part of the book (to me) actually.Rainie (who isn't my favourite) is kidnapped and held for ransom, then a young foster boy who Rainie has been workin [...]

    25. One hell of a roller-coaster ride!!! It is not a book you are reading.s like you are watching a movie. I avoided my favorite TV shows & movies just to finish reading this book. The first book I read of Lisa Gardner "The Other Daughter" which instantly made me her Fan. After going through several other books which are also fascinating I came to this book atlast. I must say, you won't keep it unless you don't finish it. From start till end you'll be enjoying every sentence, text, dialogues, ch [...]

    26. I enjoyed reading this book, but sometimes found it inconsistent. One one hand, Rainie is described as weak and in pain, and on the next scene she is fighting the kidnapper. Second, if Quincy was such a good profiler, how come they all missed Danicic? I wish the author gave the perspective of the kidnapper, just like we had for Shelly, Kimberly, Quincy and Lorraine. I enjoy reading books which have the perspective of the criminal, so I can see where they were coming from. Dougie Jones was such a [...]

    27. this one took most of the book to even get into. but in the end i liked it. proof that Gardners writing has improved since these early books

    28. I started reading this before I realized it was a Quincy and Rainie book - I am not a fan of Quincy or Rainie so I would not have read it otherwise. I didn't like it much - its very slow to start. It does pick up about half way through. I wasn't a fan of the main storyline - but the side story details about previous cases were interesting.
