Avid reader/reviewer and editor. I don't pull punches when I review, love it or hate it, you get what I think.
Talk about starting out with a bang! The opening chapter of Gone Daddy Gone certainly grabs the attention of the reader and sets up the whodunit for this tale. This is my first read in this series and it is obvious that Sloane has a past, but I had no trouble following the story line. The book is well-written, the characters are interesting, and the pacing keeps the story moving quickly. We also get snippets from the bad guy that are a bit creepy and a nice addition to the story.
While it doesn't take long to figure out the direction of the tale, the details were a surprise - at least to me. I can't speak for those that are familiar with the series. Overall, this mystery pulled me in and held my interest throughout, and the characters are sufficiently interesting to have me looking up earlier books in the series.
