“And Then She Was Gone” begins to fill the niche created by the Jack Stratton mystery series. Throughout that very entertaining series about an unusually daring and besieged police detective the reader gets glimpses of his past life as a foster kid. There are hints about his foster brother Chandler; the girl who’s head-over-heels in love with him, Alice aka Replacement; the loving couple who adopted him; and the angelic but tough Aunt Haddie, whose house fills with adoring foster kids.
“And Then She Was Gone” begins like an episode from the Hardy Boys; in this case revived through Jack and Chandler. I had a little difficulty at first adapting their dialogue to the more mature Jack Stratton series. But then it dawned on me that the protagonists were two seventeen year olds.
Frankly, when I thought about that, I decided Greyson’s technical artistry is admirable. He is able to develop immature dialogue in retrospect. Think about it. Take any adult protagonist and try to figure out how he would sound as a teenager. Amazing talent!
Anyway, this who-done-it has it all: the false leads; the hero desperately trying to prove he’s doing the right thing; the good and bad cops; and even a mildly romantic scene with an out-of-reach society girl. It has the bad guy hurting the hero badly. And it has tension from beginning to end. It’s not ‘unputdownable.’ In fact, you have to put it down several times to slow down your racing heart.
For intense enjoyment you need to read this after you’ve read one or two books from the Jack Stratton series; preferably the whole series like I did. You could read it on its own, but you’d deprive yourself of the tremendous enjoyment of unearthing the mysteries you find in the series. And, like I said, Greyson better write at least one more novel in this niche he created.
A well-deserved Five Stars for Greyson and his “And Then She Was Gone.”
This one starts with an old lady who a lanky junkie is trying to rob. The old lady's husbands much needed medication is in that purse and she's not letting go. There are onlookers but in the Hamilton Heights neighborhood its best to keep your head down and eyes closed. The most any of them will do is pull out a phone and record the robbery.
The junkie breaks the strap on the purse and the old woman lands on the ground. The robber then takes off only to run straight into 6'6" and all two hundred and nighty pounds of Chandler. The robber bounced off but Chandler never moved an inch. The old woman begged someone to get her purse back. Of course Jack Stratton who was with Chandler takes off after the purse snatcher.
Stratton catches up with the idiot only to have said idiot pull a knife on him. He gets cuts but manages to put the robber on the ground. The police show up and Jack ends up in trouble and the robber makes his escape. Once the cop hears the old lady and Chandlers story Jack is released. Of course the robber is long gone.
Stacy Shaw has had her new job at H. T. Wells for three months. She's an analyst for the company and has found a few odd things. Her boss Leland Chambers is a real sleaze and tells her to never mind. Someone else will take care of it. Stacy's husband is on a business trip and Stacy has talked with him. She's found out she's pregnant and is on top of the world right now. She's one of the last people in the office and on her way out she speaks with Jeremy the janitor. Jeremy is a little slow but Stacy likes him and always takes the time to speak with him.
Once outside she runs into Betty Robinson who's her supervisor. They discuss the oh so sleazy chambers and Betty and her husband Bruce who came to pick her up leave. Stacy heads out to her car only to find it won't start. She doesn't live to far away so decides to walk. Its a walk she will never complete.
So begins another damned fine read and a good backstory for Jack Stratton.
This one has Jack, Chandler, a Jack and Chandler who are enlisting once they graduate from high school, a jack Stratton who will put in six years and then head for the police academy, Betty, Makayla, Replacement, Aunt Haddie who ran the foster house Jack lived in until he was adopted by a good family, Detective Clark, Kelly a girl Jack goes out with, a Kelly who comes from a wealthy family, a wealthy family that frowns of those from Hamilton Heights, Ted Stratton his Father, Laura his mother, Detective Vargas, Michael Shaw, a Jack and Chandler who find the missing Stacy, a very dead Stacy, a Jack who puts his Army enlistment in jeopardy as he tries to solve the murder of Stacy Shaw, a Jack who can't get anyone to listen to him, a Ted Stratton who tries to reign Jack in and Jack Stratton taking the steps that will lead to he becoming the man he was meant to be, solve the crime, catch the murderer and stay alive.
