Sashi Burgette vanished three years ago on her way to school. The night after the teenager's disappearance, ex-con Dylan Kyle was stopped for drunk driving. An article of Sashi's clothing was found in his truck, and a police videotape of his drunken explanation under interrogation sealed his fate at trial. Now, just days from Kyle's execution, Sashi's mother visits Jack Swyteck, who's doing pro bono work at the Freedom Institute, and delivers shocking news: "Sashi called me."
The police dismiss the call as a cruel hoax. The state attorney refuses to consider the new evidence, insisting the case is closed. The governor has already signed the death warrant. An innocent man may be executed, and time is running out - unless his lawyers can locate Sashi.
A man of principle who believes in justice, Jack jumps into the investigation. But the deeper he digs, the more he discovers that nothing is what it appears to be. Not the victim. Not her alleged killer. And definitely not Sashi's parents, whose grief ruptured their marriage, each openly blaming the other for what happened to their daughter.
As their gut-wrenching and hopelessly conflicting version of events unfolds in a Miami courtroom, it becomes clear there is something even more difficult to find than a long-missing girl....

Excellent legal thriller with great narration
Gone Again is the 12th novel in the 13 novel Jack Swyteck legal thriller series. Like the other audio novels in the Jack Swyteck series I have listened to it is excellent and almost justifies a 5 star rating. There is no doubt that the narration of Jonathan Davis earns a 5 star rating. I do recommend the novels in this legal thriller series.

Did The Missing Girl Call Her Mother? Or A Hoax...
This is an interesting story where one girl disappears, and later in the story, another girl is seemingly kidnapped. Both girls are the daughters of divorced and feuding parents. Both parents are suspects. This is a real twister. Throughout the story, I thought Mom was crazy and thought Dad was the true suspect. What is the truth? Of course we know from the beginning that a man is about to be put to death for seemingly murdering of one of the girls.
I enjoyed this story but found it needed more background information on the family as a whole so that as the story unfolds, the listener could buy into the buildup to finale. The ending was a bit lackluster, in my opinion, and was hard for me to reconcile with the rest of the story as it was told.
Jonathan Davis is a top notch performer. He elevates stories he narrates.
