One poor decision will haunt her forever. 

Macy Mercer only wants a little independence. Eager to prove herself grown up, she goes to a dark, secluded park. She’s supposed to meet the boy of her dreams who she met online. But the cute fifteen year old was a fantasy, his pictures fake. She finds herself face to face with Chester Woodran, a man capable of murder. 

Distraught over his own missing daughter, Chester insists that Macy replace his lost girl. He locks Macy up, withholds food, and roughs her up, demanding that she call him dad. Under duress from his constant threats and mind games, her hold on reality starts to slip. Clinging to her memories is the only way of holding onto her true identity, not believing that she is Chester’s daughter. Otherwise she may never see her family again. 

Gone is the first novel in the Gone saga, a trilogy of psychological suspense thrillers. If you enjoy page turning suspense with constant twists and turns, then you'll love this nail-biting read.

    Loved it
  • Awesome Book

    By Mr. Doge faced Pooskay
    I love the story, but there’s a reason I rated 3 and not 5. 2 to be exact, they both deduct points. 1, it’s to short, I can read it to fast, and the other books cost money, the money that I don’t have. 2 The part with Macy’s REAL family is to short. I’d love to have a book about their perspective, not just have it in a short part. Like, if you do my idea, make it a series. Not just 1 book, 1 for the 3 books (I think). AND make the first one free, and, if you don’t want to, don’t give credit to me. I wish someone could gift me the 2 books that involve Macy (the 2 OTHER) but that isn’t happening.
  • Ok read

    By sexikaykay
    I like it but very slow took me 3 months to read. I usually take only a week if it is a really good book. I think it was to many character point of views she just needed to keep with the one character I feel. I really don’t know if I want to to read the second one if it’s going to be like the first. Overall it was ok
  • Chilling with some tears

    By Gotitall47
    OMG from the first page I was hooked. Every character had their own role and the author made sure we knew who everyone was with out going on a random tangent. Every chapter made sense and it flowed so well I could not put my phone down. Now I have to buy the other because I need to know what happens to the “daughter”
  • Wish the second book was free!

    Sehr Gut!
  • Ok

    By erBear13
    The language is cliched and unnatural making many of the characters unbelievable. However, there is a suspenseful storyline that holds your interest.
  • Gone

    By Marketing major
    Some will see themselves at certain ages. The sweetest, saddest, joyful moments of life with our families. Gone should be read by both parents and children with today's addiction to social media. A story of how both should remain vigilant for their safety, yet a captivating story instead for a lecture.
  • GONE!!

    By Annomonity
    Wow!, what a page turning story. I love how Stacy portrays Macy as the unwanted,unwelcome girl at school the outcast. How Macy’s family life is just as a-lot of teen girls see their own. Sadly online predators are there and not just after girls but boys too. We need to teach our kids too be careful online sites. Watch for anything auspicious or strange/unusual. I recommend this book to any parent or caregiver.
  • Depressing

    By Fishing apps.
    If you like depressing, no point in telling the story, you will like this book. I can't understand the value of a plot that simply shows the terror one man brings to a young girl and her grieving family. No redeeming values, it just continues to be sickening and depressing. I won't read the follow up books as I doubt this writer has a feel good bone in her body.
  • Excellent read!

    Couldn't put this book down. One of the best I've read! Can't wait to finish the trilogy.
