Gone the Next by Ben Rehder

Meet Roy Ballard, freelance videographer with a knack for catching insurance cheats. He's working a routine case, complete with hours of tedious surveillance, when he sees something that shakes him to the core. There, with the subject, is a little blond girl wearing a pink top and denim shorts—the same outfit worn by Tracy Turner, a six-year-old abducted the day before. When the police are skeptical of Ballard's report—and with his history, who can blame them?—it's the beginning of the most important case of his life.

Amazing book read NOW

This book was AMAZING I read the whole thing in an hour and a half. Funny, witty, and mystery! Must read.

Good story line, terrible ending

I enjoyed this novel until the end. The end is a really huge cliffhanger and leaves you wondering what happened to the characters. Wish the author would've given more closure. Overall an intriguing storyline, keeps you on your toes.

Gone The Next, a review.

Happy to say I've enjoyed reading this book, so much so I am about to start another of your books.
It isn't often that I find characters within books that I wish I could meet and befriend in real life.But that's what I found reading Gone The Next.
I look forward to reading all of your books, and am hoping you might write and develop these and other interesting character in them as well.
Thank you for the entertainment.
Best wishes to you and yours now and always.
Kindest Regards,
Judy Quinn
