Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Here’s one reason why this thriller by the author of the Kevin Corvelli legal mysteries works so well: it’s fast paced and lean, topping out at barely 300 pages. Here’s another reason: Simon Fisk, the former U.S. marshal who makes his living finding children who have been abducted by their estranged parents, is an excellent character. He has a tortured past, of course—that’s de rigueur for thriller heroes—but his is especially tortured: years ago, his own daughter was taken by an unknown individual, and his wife committed suicide shortly after. Fisk vowed he would never take a case involving “stranger abduction,” but this case is too compelling for him to ignore: the young daughter of an American couple, on vacation in Paris, has been kidnapped, apparently not for ransom. And here’s another reason why you can’t put the book down: once the story kicks into high gear, which is pretty much at the top of page 2, it doesn’t let up, period. The story moves as fast as Fisk’s BMW motorcycle, which takes him from Berlin to Warsaw, as he tracks the men who took the missing girl. It’s a violent story, like the Liam Neeson movie Taken (which shares some DNA with this book), but the violence is essential to the story. This is a remarkable change of pace from the lighter, more leisurely Corvelli mysteries, and—we can only hope—merely the first of many Simon Fisk novels. --David Pitt

Review

"If James Bond were in the business of rescuing kidnapped children, he mighteasily be mistaken for Simon Fisk, the haunted hero of this slam-bamthriller...  [Good As Gone is] an adrenaline rush with a character worthrooting for."
~PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
 
"[F]astpaced and lean...  [O]nce the story kicks into high gear, which is prettymuch at the top of page 2, it doesn't let up, period." 
~BOOKLIST (Starredreview)
 
"Therelentless pace...will have readers clamoring for more." 
~RT BOOK REVIEWS (4 Stars)

 "Good as Gone is as good as it gets.  Simon Fisk is a fascinating character, and Douglas Corleone has crafted one hell of a thriller.  It is a pleasure to recommend this nonstop novel to my readers."
--MICHAEL PALMER

"Delivers a lightning-fast pace, surprising and heartfelt twists, and action aplenty."
--JEFF ABBOTT

"A terrific international thriller. I expected to be entertained when I picked up a novel by Douglas Corleone and was rewarded handsomely. Highly recommended."
--JAMES GRIPPANDO

"Good as Gone goes from zero to 60 in under six seconds and never lets off the gas! If you like your thrillers filled with nonstop action in a race against time through Europe's underbelly, hop in and take a ride."
--ANDREW GROSS

"Everything I want in a thriller--an ingenious plot, breathless pace, and one of the coolest new heroes to come along in years. My only question is, when can I read the next Simon Fisk thriller?"
--DAVID ELLIS

"Good as Gone is the can't-put-it-down thriller of the year that propels Douglas Corleone into Lee Child territory. Yeah, it's that good."
--JASON STARR
