Inhaltsangabe:

2012 International Thriller Award Nominee

Jake Reese is a writing teacher at an American university. He lives in a small brick Tudor close to campus with his art buyer wife, Diane. His life is quiet--even ordinary. And he likes it that way. But it wasn’t always quiet. In Jake’s distant past was a life on the streets, inflicting damage and suffering on more people than he can count. And now someone from his past, it seems, has come looking for him.

A raw, gripping thriller about the price paid for past sins, John Rector’s third novel is a live wire that crackles with the intensity of a man who has nothing left to lose. When two men attack Jake in a parking lot 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 his wife, he realizes his dark past is refusing to stay buried, and that his future is about to unfold in ways he could never have imagined.

With taut and brooding prose, Rector paints a formidable portrait of a reformed man’s slow descent into a life he thought he had walked away from forever. As the intensity becomes almost unbearable, the pace quickens and the suspense applies an unrelenting, vicelike grip, as Already Gone hurtles toward its ultimate explosive climax.

Review:

Praise For Already Gone:

"Swift and savage and smart, Rector's thriller delivers high tension with low-key ease, underscoring the way bad karma can disrupt a good life. Literary in the best, most unpretentious sense, Already Gone is superior pulp in the grand James M. Cain tradition." Max Allan Collins, author of Road to Perdition

"Already Gone is a terse, moody thriller by a novelist who I consider to be one of the very best new writers to enter the scene in a very long time... John Rector is a game changer." -Spinetingler Magazine

"At a time when most suspense is more filler than thriller, John Rector's third novel drags the genre kicking and screaming back to its roots. ALREADY GONE is a thriller in its purest and most cinematic incarnation - not a word or emotion wasted, it's a taut, nerve-jangling ride that barrels towards an electrifying conclusion, which will leave you shaken, stirred, and above all else eagerly awaiting the next Rector novel." -Ray Banks author of Saturday’s Child and Gun

"John Rector really knows how to pour on the intensity and leave his readers with a smile on their faces. Rector has written a fast-moving thriller that will take you on a trip through the life of a man who, in his youth, inflicted pain and suffering... Now his past has come back to haunt him and he’s paying a big price."--DJ Weaver, Suspense Magazine

Praise for Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author John Rector:

”John Rector piques our curiosity at every page turn and leaves us hanging at each chapter ending.” -New York Journal of Books

”Its time to get on board, before Rector stops being "the next big thing" and becomes the phenomenon he deserves to be.” -Los Angeles Review of Books

”John Rector is a game changer” - Spinetingler Magazine

”A bestselling author who doesn’t make us embarrassed to have his books on our shelves.”- The Nerd of Noir

”Rector brings some really impressive writing and strong characters into a genre that is often teeming with contrived, cringe-worthy dialogue and flat, unoriginal characters.”- Baltimore Reads

”(Rector’s) consistent excellence in storytelling is already proving his calling card.”- Books and Writer’s

”John Rector writes a lean, mean mystery.”- Lincoln Journal Star

”If Rector came out with a book tomorrow, it would be at the top of my “to-be-read” list by nightfall! He has refined his craft, opening new possibilities for the future. Wherever he goes, I’ll follow.”- Grift Magazine Duane Swierczynski Reviews Already Gone

Books are like houses. Some houses, you can tell right away they're about to collapse at any moment and you need to scramble out quick. Other houses may seem OK at first, but then you realize that maybe the ceiling's too low, or there's not enough natural light in the living room, or the floors creak too much. Finally, there are some houses that are expertly crafted, both in terms of structural integrity and design. But the problem is, you've been inside dozens of houses just like it. Zzzzz.

And then you have houses like the ones John Rector builds...you can't help but marvel at how much weight is supported by his lean, spare sentences. The whole thing should collapse--but doesn't.
