Former U.S. Marshal Simon Fisk now works as a private contractor, tracking down and recovering children who were kidnapped by their own estranged parents. He only has one rule: he won’t touch stranger abduction cases. He’s still haunted by the disappearance of his own daughter years ago when she was just a child, still unsolved, and stranger kidnappings hit too close to home.
Until, that is, six-year-old Lindsay Sorkin disappears from her parents’ hotel room in Paris, and the French police deliver Simon an ultimatum: he can spend years in a French jail for his actions during a past case, or he can work with them now to find Lindsay Sorkin. So, Simon sets out in pursuit of the missing child and the truth behind her disappearance. But Lindsay’s captors did not leave an easy trail, and following it will take Simon across the continent, through Europe’s ritziest nightclubs and seediest back alleys, into a terrifying world of international intrigue and dark corners of his past he’d rather never face again.
With lightning-fast pacing and a twist behind every turn, Douglas Corleone’s Good as Gone is a gripping race against the clock for a young girl with her life on the line and a man who has nothing left to lose.
