    1 thought on “Good As Gone”

    1. I received this book for free through First Reads. I was really looking forward to reading this book based on the description and other reviews. I was immediately disappointed by the lack of logic and overall unbelievable details of events. I had trouble getting beyond page 50 but decided that it had to get better. I was wrong and at the half way point I stalled again. It takes more than moving quickly from city to city and getting into and out of dangerous situations to make a good thriller. I [...]

    2. Everyone makes a “personal”rule, that they do NOT stray from following. Former U.S. Marshall Simon Fisk is no different. He now tries to retrieve children “kidnapped” by a parent and taken out of the United States. His one rule, made after a devastating loss in his past is “Do not take on stranger abduction cases.” Period. When he is detained by the French police who threaten him with incarceration if he does not used his expertise to find the missing six-year-old daughter of a very [...]

    3. I thoroughly enjoyed this fast paced thriller, and am looking forward to reading the author's backlist. The main character, Simon Fisk, was damaged, yet very likeable. The storyline was action packed, keeping me captivated all the way through. Simon Fisk recovers children who have been kidnapped by their own parents. Simon, a former U.S. Marshall, lost all when his daughter was kidnapped, and due to that, he never takes on stranger abduction cases. Just finishing up a case in France, Simon is ta [...]

    5. Good As Gone is a thriller by Douglas Corleone. His protagonist is Simon Fisk. The story starts with Simon in France being arrested, but he's not being taken to jail. Instead they take him to a house where he's asked to find a missing girl who's been abducted. They ask him because they know who he is, a former United States Marshall.

    6. I received this book as part of a Goodread's giveaway contest. The book sounded right up my alley, but the novel was mediocre, at best. The general concept of the story had potential. It reminded me a tad of the film Taken with Liam Neeson. Unfortunately, the story turns out completely lackluster. The problem is that everything is a little too easy in the book. The trail of clues is found one after another with zero investigation and more by sheer luck. The logic is lacking, as well. The main ch [...]

    7. I won Good As Gone on . What a great win that was. I am in love with the main character Simon Fisk. Things do not come easy or always go well for Simon but he is determined to do the right thing. He takes recovering kidnapped kids to a new level and I hope this is the start of a new series. Beware, once you start you will not be able to put the book dpown.

    8. Fantastic -- grabs the reader immediately and doesn't let up. This is the 4th book I've read by Corleone. He's a master of the genre. Without giving anything away, the climax is both nerve-wracking and heart-wrenching. Highly recommend.

    9. This book has very good elements of a man trying to help others, but what he is really doing is battling the demons of his past, plus it has a decent ending.

    10. Simon Fisk has lived through every parent's worst nightmare. His six-year-old daughter was abducted and has never been found. His wife committed suicide but Simon,. former US Marshal, now locates children taken by non-custodial parents and brings them home. He is stopped by the police in Paris and forced to help them locate six-year-old Lindsey Sorkin. The French police don't want the scandal of losing another foreign child. Simon doesn't care about the police but he does care about the little g [...]

    11. A Thrilling Race to Recover a Kidnapped Child Former US Marshal Simon Fisk has just recovered another kidnapped child in France and is heading home when he's detained by the French Police. Six-year-old Lindsay Sorkin has disappeared from the suite where she was staying with her parents. They are distraught. The police give Fisk an option: go to jail for smuggling the child he recovered out of France, or help find Lindsay. Simon avoids looking for kidnapped children unless an estranged parent is [...]

    12. First featured at Whitnage.Blogspot Today I'm reviewing a book from Netgalley called Good As Gone by Douglas Corleone.Good As Gone is the story of former U.S. Marshall Simon Fisk who now retrieves children kidnapped by an estranged parent and taken to foreign countries. Fisk's one rule is that he won't work stranger abductions, having lost his daughter years ago in an unsolved case. However that is about to change, because to avoid a prison sentence in France, Fisk accepts a job searching for 6 [...]

    13. I got this book from a giveaway. This is probably the most excited I've ever been to win a book from a giveaway. The plot sounded fantastic and like something I could very well dive into. Unfortunately, it didn't turn out so for me. I had such a hard time getting through this book, but I decided to stick it out just because I was curious to see what would happen to Lindsay Sorkin (which I wasn't expecting what did actually happen with her, by the way.) This novel didn't seem to have much logic [...]

    14. Warning -- don't start GOOD AS GONE at night or you'll be losing a lot of sleep. This is one of those books that you simply have to read "one more chapter" all the way to the end. Simon Fisk is as real, believable and vulnerable as any character you're likely to find. His race across countries, and against time to find a kidnapped child will have you holding your breath -- and the climax will come as both a shock and surprise. GOOD AS GONE is as good as it gets. Can't wait for the next one. Reme [...]

    15. I feel bad for Douglas Corleone. I'm pretty sure he spent hours and hours writing and I read this book entirely in les than 24! Excellent read. Well done.

    16. Ten years ago, Simon Fisk’s six-year-old daughter Hailey was abducted from the family home, never to be seen again. Devastated by grief and guilt, his wife Tasha committed suicide a short while later. For the last ten years, Simon has tried to outrun his demons by tracking down children unlawfully abducted by non-custodial parents, wanting to spare others the grief of losing a child Simon had to experience himself. However, he has never had to deal with abduction by strangers, so when he is ap [...]

    17. Astounding read. By far the best Thriller I've ever read.Simon Fisk is a former US Marshal now chasing after children who have been abducted by a parent, much like he had been as a child. What he doesn't do, however, is involve himself in cases where a stranger has kidnapped a child, because it is much too painful. His daughter was taken from him years ago by a stranger, and his wife soon committed suicide. When Lieutenant Davignon threatens him with prison if he doesn't take such a case, howeve [...]

    18. I received an advance readers' edition of this book for free through First Reads.This book was a pretty quick read with action from the start. The narrator, Simon Fisk, puts the reader into the mind of a man who lost a part of himself when his daughter went missing. The similarities that he mentions between his wife and Lori Sorkin (the woman whose daughter he is looking for) tell how painful it still is to think about the disappearance of his daughter, Hailey. This book was excellent and kept [...]

    19. So, I won this book from , and I cannot tell you how amazing it is, and how glad I was to win it! This book is an amazing read! (Word of warning: Once you start, there is no putting it down!) The main character is so real! I like how the author does not make the main character (Simon Fisk) seem different from any normal human being. Simon's pain is real, and what he feels, can be felt by the reader as well. The loss of Simon's daughter was a big motif in the book, and it spurred Simon to do thin [...]

    20. WOW!! A fast paced, page turning thriller that kept me involved from page 1. Meet Simon Fisk, who use to be a US Marshall, he now finds children who were abducted by a parent and taken out of the country. While on one of these retrieval missions his own 6 year old daughter is taken. The man who could find other missing children could not find his own. This leads to the suicide of his wife that he loved so much. Now a couple are vacationing in Paris and their 6 year old daughter is taken from the [...]

    21. Read my full review: bit/1evXSEZMy opinion: While I felt this book was entertaining, fast paced and action packed, I did find it a bit too "melodramatic" for my liking. Think 70's private eye TV show, where the detective is way to cool, easy going and, basically, bullet proof. There was almost a feel of cliche to his character. While I will say that, I wont' say that it went as deep as downright cheesy.On that note, I have to say that I whipped through the book because it kept me entertained. Hi [...]

    22. I thought this book was very good and interesting. This book instantly pulled me in and I didn't want to stop reading it. When Andrew Gross says it goes from zero to sixty in under six seconds and doesn't let off the gas, well he is right. I wasn't expecting the ending to the book, but I was happy with the way it ended.

    23. This was a very exciting thriller that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. Simon Fisk was a great character who brought so many intense feeling to this reader. The other characters were well written & made you love them or hate them. I stayed up all night to finish this book & would recommend it to other. I am now a fan Mr. Corleone!

    24. Quick read, but a complete let down. Majority of the story, I felt bored. Perhaps I expected more from a novel that claimed to be a thriller. There was not much that thrilled me throughout the book. I knew I continued to read until the end merely to find out if the main character Simon was able to locate the kidnapped child.

    25. Once I started reading this book, I couldn't put it down! It takes the reader on the most exciting trip through Eastern Europe and constantly keeps you guessing. Can't wait to pick up the next book in the series!

    26. Tense and exciting. The book wasn't stuffed with nonessential stuff, and everything served to push the story forward. This was excellently written.(Read more.)
