And Then She Was Gone by Christopher Greyson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
**** 4 Cranky Stars ****
Stacy Shaw has her whole life ahead of her: new job, new house, a baby on the way and a doting husband. After working late one night, she disappears in the dark.
Jack Stratton is seventeen and headed for the Army. He's always wanted to be police officer and his plans for the Army put him on track to achieving his aims.
He's just started dating a beautiful girl and for a kid who was abandoned, put in the foster system and doesn't know where his real parents are, Jack's life is on the up and up.
That is... until his world collides with Stacy Shaw's disappearance. Pressed on by codes of honor from his old neighborhood, Jack inserts himself and his best friend, Chandler into Stacy's investigation. Then all his carefully laid plans begin to unravel.
I've been in a book funk until I read this story. Filled with likable characters (main and secondary), the book keeps you interested until the last page.
Packed with red herrings, tense, and not to mention laugh out loud moments, this was a great escape into a 'whodunnit'.
I recommend this book for all ages. It's clean and would appeal to young adults as well as those a bit older. I'm looking forward to following the adventures of Jack Stratton and the wonderful cast of characters in his life.
