“Sharp, witty and perfectly paced, And Now She’s Gone is one hell of a read!” (Wendy Walker, best-selling author of The Night Before)

Isabel Lincoln is gone.

But is she missing?

It’s up to Grayson Sykes to find her. Although she is reluctant to track down a woman who may not want to be found, Gray’s search for Isabel Lincoln becomes more complicated and dangerous with every new revelation about the woman’s secrets and the truth she’s hidden from her friends and family.

Featuring two complicated women in a dangerous cat-and-mouse game, Rachel Howzell Hall's And Now She’s Gone explores the nature of secrets - and how violence and fear can lead you to abandon everything in order to survive.

Solid writing

I really liked the characters of this book and the flow was good, as was the narration...
Unfortunately it fell so flat in a lot of ways. The ending seemed rushed and left too many holes, and you just can't find it believable. This is a book you use a free credit for, I wouldn't strongly recommend it.

EXCELLENT :-)

This really is an excellent book, and Je Nie Fleming once again does an amazing job performing the characters :-) :-) :-)
Note: if you were so excited to see a new Rachel Howzell Hall novel being released that you didn’t notice the novel doesn’t star her usual heroine detective, don’t wait for that detective to appear. I did that for quite awhile, before realizing that this is a standalone novel, or, at least, the first in a new series. Oops! ;-)

Good plot, BUT!

Compelling plot, but way, way way too wordy. I have never considered buying an abridged version of a book. However, I would suggest the abridged version of this book.

Best new detective series I’ve read in a long time!

Fresh voice, dynamic characters, and expertly crafted plot! Fun from beginning to end. One of my favorite novels of 2020!

Not One of My Favorites

I thought this book was okay, not great. I was disappointed by the reader's voicing of older African-American characters, which were frankly overblown and unflattering. And the twisty ending seemed contrived. Glad others enjoyed it more than I did.

Excellent Narrator

The narrator was so convincing. I forgot it was only one person reading! The plot was intriguing and suspenseful. The only downside was the ending.It felt abrupt. The epilogue didn’t even mention the doctor or the dog...

A intriguing mystery with powerful social message

This starts as a private detective Grayson gets her first solo case. Thinking it would be an easy one; she steps into a web of lies, and murderous scamming. I loved the plot twists and mystery. But importantly, the characters (especially Grayson) were complex, broken, twisted, brave and damn relatable . The Black cultural norms came alive in the writing and the excellent voice actor's performance. The discussion of DV, racism, abuse of Black women, etc made this book quite powerful. Several scenes had me processing my own experiences as a Black woman. I found the story and Grayson's arc to be healing and inspirational.

Best.Narrator.Ever.

Ms. Fleming is astounding! The accents and dialects made the story even better than it is. It seems it will be a series -- I am hoping very much it will! Clever writing brought alive by the narration makes this a MUST Listen!

Where is Isabel Lincoln?

3.75 ✨

Where is Isabel Lincoln?

I found myself constantly asking this question throughout this entire book. Right when I thought I had it figured out, I realized I was wrong.

We’re following our main character Gray on her first big private investigator case. Grayson Sykes is hired to locate a young doctors missing girlfriend and dog. But is Isabel really missing?

Throughout the story we also see flashbacks into Grayson’s past and find out why she’s in the P.I. business.

I really enjoyed the twist and turns of this book, despite Grayson’s past/storyline being a little predictable. Honestly, I could’ve done without the back and forth between the two stories because it left me a little confused at times.

Overall, I enjoyed this mystery/thriller and its exploration of domestic violence.

Getting hooked on Rachelle and Je Nie

The plot was complex enough that I had to go over it a few times but it was fabulous.

It’s very hard to understand women who are abused and stay. Rachelle handled it very well
