Jack is a kid who was abandoned, in foster care for years, and eventually, after years with an amazing black foster-care woman, was adopted by yet another amazing couple. But he has scars from the few years he had prior of being locked up, burned, and neglected by his druggie/hooker mother and others. But he always wanted to be a cop. This has given him protective instincts and seems to find himself in situations where he's chasing down muggers or chasing leads for suspects in cases...all without any permission from parents or police. It gets him in hot water.
In this case, he knows a kid from his background who is accused of a crime is probably innocent and sets out to prove it.
Good stuff. I highly recommend this book to anyone.
“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.”
Stacy Shaw has her whole life ahead of her: new job, new house, a baby on the way and a doting husband. After working late one night, she disappears in the dark.
Jack Stratton is seventeen and headed for the Army. He's always wanted to be police officer and his plans for the Army put him on track to achieving his aims.
He's just started dating a beautiful girl and for a kid who was abandoned, put in the foster system and doesn't know where his real parents are, Jack's life is on the up and up.
That is... until his world collides with Stacy Shaw's disappearance. Pressed on by codes of honor from his old neighborhood, Jack inserts himself and his best friend, Chandler into Stacy's investigation. Then all his carefully laid plans begin to unravel.
I've been in a book funk until I read this story. Filled with likable characters (main and secondary), the book keeps you interested until the last page.
Packed with red herrings, tense, and not to mention laugh out loud moments, this was a great escape into a 'whodunnit'.
I recommend this book for all ages. It's clean and would appeal to young adults as well as those a bit older.
I'm looking forward to following the adventures of Jack Stratton and the wonderful cast of characters in his life.
