A New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice

"So gripping you might start to question your own family’s past." —Entertainment Weekly

“[One] of the most anticipated summer thrillers . . . Gentry's novel isn't primarily about the version of the self that comes from a name and a family of origin; instead, it draws our attention to the self that's forged from sheer survival, and from the clarifying call to vengeance.” —New York Times Book Review

Anna’s daughter Julie was kidnapped from her own bedroom when she was thirteen years old, while Anna slept just downstairs, unaware that her daughter was being ripped away from her. For eight years, she has lived with the guilt and the void in her family, hoping against hope that Julie is still alive. And then one night, the doorbell rings. A young woman who appears to be Julie is finally, miraculously, home safe. Anna and the rest of the family are thrilled, but soon Anna begins to see holes in Julie’s story. When she is contacted by a former detective turned private eye, she is forced to wonder if this young woman is even her daughter at all. And if she isn’t Julie, what is it that she wants?

“So much about this novel is fresh and insightful and decidedly not like every other thriller . . . Good as Gone ranks as an outstanding debut, well worth reading. This is no mere Gone Girl wannabe.” —Dallas Morning News

Quotes & Awards

  • “Gentry’s debut novel is…so gripping you might start to question your own family’s past.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • "[One] of the most anticipated summer thrillers…draws our attention to the self that’s forged from sheer survival, and from the clarifying call to vengeance.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Begins with a ‘ripped from the headlines’ premise, but broadens to explore themes ranging from the mothering of daughters to the inwardness of suburban life and the lure of the megachurch in an era of consumerism.”

    Minneapolis Star Tribune

  • “It’s Amy Gentry’s realistic portrayals of victims and their families that set Good as Gone apart from other page-turning crime dramas…Hard to put down not only because of our investment in the plot but also because of our investment in the lives of the complicated characters.”

    Austin Chronicle

  • “Holds a mirror up to the myriad ways rape culture is perpetuated.”

    Bustle

  • “Narrator Karen Peakes portrays the sheer joy of Anna, Julie’s mother, and then her unspeakable creeping doubts about the grown-up Julie’s true identity. Peakes’s narration of Julie herself is tinged with a shade of vagueness that invites listeners to question her credibility…[and] Peakes delivers the occasionally elegant prose with grace.”
