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.

  • 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!

  • Ok

    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!

    The moment I read the first chapter I was hooked. Then after I had finished it it left me with questions that I had to get the second. This book is great period.

    I work overnights as a nurse with a very stable client. I read this entire book in one night. I had to go out and buy the rest of the trilogy. My new favorite author!!
