And Now She's Gone: A Novel Kindle Edition
“Sharp, witty and perfectly paced, And Now She’s Gone is one hell of a read!” —Wendy Walker, bestselling author of The Night Before
Isabel Lincoln is gone.
But is she missing?
It’s up to Grayson Sykes to find her. Although she is reluctant to track down a woman who may not want to be found, Gray’s search for Isabel Lincoln becomes more complicated and dangerous with every new revelation about the woman’s secrets and the truth she’s hidden from her friends and family.
Featuring two complicated women in a dangerous cat and mouse game, Rachel Howzell Hall's And Now She’s Gone explores the nature of secrets — and how violence and fear can lead you to abandon everything in order to survive.

Praise for And Now She's Gone:"It's a feat to keep high humor and crushing sorrow in plausible equilibrium in a mystery novel, and few writers are as adept at it as Rachel Howzell Hall." --Washington Post
"One of the best books of the year...whip-smart and emotionally deep, And Now She's Gone is a deceptively straightforward mystery, blending a fledgling PI's first 'woman is missing' case with underlying stories about racial identity, domestic abuse and rank evil." --Los Angeles Times "Smart, razor-sharp....Full of wry, dark humor, this nuanced tale of two extraordinary women is un-put-downable." --Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Smart, packed with dialogue that sings on the page, Hall's novel turns the tables on our expectations at every turn, bringing us closer to truth than if it were forced on us in school." --Walter Mosley "A fierce PI running from her own dark past chases a missing woman around buzzy LA. Breathlessly suspenseful, as glamorous as the city itself, And Now She's Gone should be at the top of your must-read list."
--Michele Campbell, bestselling author of A Stranger on the Beach. "One of crime fiction's leading writers at her very best. The final twist that will make you want to immediately turn back to page one and read it all over again. And Now She's Gone is a perfect blend of PI novel and psychological suspense that will have readers wanting more." --Kellye Garrett, Anthony, Agatha, and Lefty Award-winning author of Hollywood Homicide and Hollywood Ending "Sharp, witty and perfectly paced, And Now She's Gone is one hell of a read!" --Wendy Walker, bestselling author of The Night Before "Hall once again proves to be an accomplished maestro who has composed a symphony of increasing tension and near unbearable suspense. Rachel brilliantly reveals the bone and soul of our shared humanity and the struggle to contain the nightmares of human faults and failings. I am a fan, pure and simple." --Stephen Mack Jones, award-winning author of the August Snow thrillers "Heartfelt and gripping... I'm a perennial member of the Rachel Howzell Hall fan club, and her latest is a winning display of her wit and compassion and mastery of suspense." --Steph Cha, award-winning author of Your House Will Pay "An entertainingly twisty plot, a rich and layered sense of place, and most of all a main character who pops off the page. Gray Sykes is hugely engaging and deeply complex, a descendant of Philip Marlowe and Easy Rawlings who is also definitely, absolutely her own woman." --Lou Berney, award-winning author of November Road
"A deeply human protagonist, an intricate and twisty plot, and sentences that make me swoon with jealousy...Rachel Howzell Hall will flip every expectation you have--this is a magic trick of a book." --Rob Hart, author of The Warehouse
"And Now She's Gone has all the mystery of a classic whodunnit, with an undeniably fresh and clever voice. Hall exemplifies the best of the modern PI novel." --Alafair Burke, New York Times bestselling author
Praise for Rachel Howzell Hall: "A fresh voice in crime fiction." --Lee Child "Devilishly clever. . .

Then the plot--twisty, complex, each bit of the past narrative shines more light into the present-day mystery, changing and enriching how you feel about (and for) the protagonist. The parts that unflinchingly examine domestic violence and some of the "why does she stay" questions are powerful and true even when uncomfortable. New PI Grayson Sykes is complex but so very human and relatable. So many bits left me with "yeah I've been there." Not being able to find a pen in an unfriendly environment, having to wing it with a threatening/shady character when you're new at this...so real.
I liked that Skye, unlike Hall's Det. Lou Norton, has to do her job as a PI without the authority of badge and official position (I love Lou too, but being a cop is so different from being a novice PI). I do have to note that the bits touching on foster care, teens in FC and adoption, complicated and messy, was dead on target and well-done. I was not expecting the ending--it really caught me by surprise, in the best way. The $$ I spent pre-ordering this was $$ well-spent!
I love Hall's other books and look forward to more Lou Norton tales, but now I'd love to read more of Grayson Skye.
On her first assignment as an investigator for Rader Consulting, Grayson is sent to the handsome Dr. Ian O’Donnell to discuss the disappearance of his girlfriend Isabel Lincoln two months earlier. Isabel took his dog when she went and that seems to bother the doctor more than his missing girlfriend.
But as Grayson digs into this increasingly baffling case, she begins to realize that her abusive former husband has found her and plans to force her back into his life.
This is another brilliant mystery from Rachel Howzell Hall with a spell-binding story that entwines multiple mysteries. It will test your biases as you read. The suspense is spine-tingling as Grayson struggles to find the truth about Isabel and to avoid being taken hostage by her former husband.
