Customer Review

on February 25, 2014
Jack and Jessica Stillwell are a Nick and Nora Charles for the 21st Century. And, in fact, Stephen Campbell's "Gone Tomorrow" reads like it's the launching pad for a series featuring these two engaging characters.

But instead of living the elegant NYC lifestyle of Nick and Nora, Jack and Jessica are closer to John D. MacDonald's famous detective Travis McGee. They live at the (mostly) warm Florida shore and their lifestyle is the lifestyle of boaters and beach people.

The story kicks off when Jack and Jessica return from their morning run to find a dead body just steps from their house. A naked, two hundred and fifty pound man who had been their neighbor. If that's not an invitation to investigation what is? And, of course, complications ensue.

There's some good lines too. Talking about trust fund families, the narrator says "They thought their money made them smart." Having run into people like that in real life, that line struck home. At another point in the story, Jessica favors someone with "one of her B plus smiles." Good description.

"Gone Tomorrow" is a good story and a fun read that shows potential for the author.
