CRIME THRILLER REVIEW: Already Gone - John Rector

Release Date: 08/12/11


Jake Reese is an ordinary guy with an ordinary job, trying to block out the memory of his violent past by planning for the future with his new wife, Diane. But the past has a habit of refusing to stay buried...When two men attack Jake in a car park and cut off his ring finger, he tries to dismiss it as an unlucky case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. But when events take a more sinister turn and Diane goes missing, Jake knows he can no longer hide from the truth. As he embarks on a mission to find Diane, Jake finds himself dragged back into the life he thought he had walked away from forever and the days ahead begin to unfold in terrifying ways...


The third release by John Rector and one hell of a crime thriller as threads from the principle characters past and present come together for an explosive combination. It’s well written, the lead character, one that the reader can associate with and as the novel wends its merry way, you can see the darker half of Jake Reese reassert itself as he needs it to survive whats coming.

Its real edge of your seat stuff and the story really doesn’t let up from the start to the end. Finally add to this decent prose, cracking dialogue and a character that the reader can really get behind and its clearly demonstrates an author who clearly plots where he wants to go but allows the character enough freedom to get there their own way. Top notch.
