Going Gone! (A Trackers Novel) by Anita Dickason is a political fiction novel that would appeal most to a mixed audience of adults and young adults who enjoy fast paced, suspense filled thrillers. Kerry Branson is an ex-homicide detective turned private investigator who disrupts a scheme to kidnap the children of powerful politicians on Capitol Hill when she rescues the six-year-old son of a U.S. senator on a back road in the Piney Woods of East Texas. Kerry Branson quickly teams up with FBI agent Tracker Ryan Barr to search for the missing children, to break the scheme apart, and to catch the mastermind of the scheme.
Going Gone! (A Trackers Novel) by Anita Dickason was a very enjoyable read that I finished in one go without any breaks; it was just one of those books that grabbed me from the very first page and refused to release me until I finished the whole book. Anita Dickason did a spectacular job with both character development and plot creation; the characters all had natural dialogue and realistic personalities, and the plot was flawless. While I enjoyed the whole book and all the characters, my favorite part was at the beginning when Kerry thwarted the kidnapping of a child as that was the scene that sparked the entire plot of the book. Kerry was also by far my favorite character, her background as an ex-homicide detective made her ability to act as a competent investigator realistic and believable, while her personality as a strong female character who was not willing to stand by as bad things happened made me admire her.
