This is an auction for GONE AGAIN by Doug Johnstone. reviews:

"A journey into the dark heart of family secrets, well written with a lot of pace and depth. The Douglas family would appear on the surface to be the 'ideal'. As layer after layer is stripped away in a clever series of revelations it soon becomes obvious they're not. The plot's centred around the suspicious disappearance of mother and wife Lauren Douglas. However; it's really much more about the relationship between father and son, Mark and Nathan, which is well portrayed. As we begin to learn about the true extent of Mark's problems with anger there's a slowly building fear for the safety of Nathan. He's lost his mum and now his dad is slowly spinning out of control. There's anger, danger and uncertainty all around the little boy as he tries to deal with his new circumstances. The police seem to be in no rush to complete their investigation into Lauren's disappearance. Why? Is Mark implicated? I'm not telling you anything - read the book! Without a doubt the best part of Gone Again are the characters and the close look at what holds a family together and what can drive them apart. Overall a decent read with strong, contemporary themes."

"FIVE STARS!!! This was a page turning read; a fantastic evocation of life in and around Edinburgh. The descriptions of raw grief and life were excellent. And the characters were well depicted and insightful. Thoroughly recommend this book for an enjoyable few hours reading."
