I downloaded this book because it was offered gratis for prime customers, which I am. I never would have otherwise, because Rector is a blank page to me.
I disliked the book, will never read another Rector because he leads the reader by the nose. Trips him/her up every time. Like Dan Brown, always a new twist. I hate being made a fool of. The good guy is bad, no he is after all good, or is he? Come on... What a bunch of junk.
I give it one star only because I finished it in order to find out how it ended. I have forgotten the whole plot in the meantime.

Wer denkt, ein Buch, das man kostenlos laden kann, ist nichts wert, liegt hier völlig falsch! Die Geschichte ist gut geschrieben, hat überraschende Wendungen, Gut und Böse, und nicht immer liegt man richtig in der Einschätzung, wer welcher Seite angehört. Stellenweise ist die Handlung sehr brutal, daher nur 4 Sterne. Aber für mich als eifrigen Crime/Suspense Leser war das Buch eine angenehme Überraschung, ich kann es empfehlen!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Face paced Action , Flawed Characters, A good read 10. August 2015
Von Raftice - Avid Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
It has been awhile since I read this book so i cannot remember the details. However, I do recall that I decided to give the book a try after reading a review and liked it well enough to buy and read all of his other books. A key factor in Rector's stories are that his characters are deeply flawed. If you are looking for a prince charming or hero to take home to mom, you will not find them here. The stories are fast paced and held my attention. there are times when you want to scream at the poor choices of the characters and occasionally you the believeablitity of a story is stretched. However, overall, with the exception of "the Grove" which I found creepy and could not wait for it to resolve, I have found all of his books to be fast paced and entertaining.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Diving into Hitchcock territory 7. Mai 2012
Von W. V. Buckley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
There's something familiar about John Rector's Already Gone. A man with a past who's surrounded by people who may not be all they seem, all on a quest to find ... something. (Hitchcock called this "the McGuffin.")

In this case we have Roger Thorndyke ... oops, I mean college teacher Jake (sorry, I couldn't resist another Hitchcock reference) who gets suddenly and violently thrust into the action when two strangers attack him and cut off a finger, the one with his wedding ring. While Jake seems to be a mild-mannered teacher, he has a bit of a checkered past. He and his new wife Diane believe that past is behind Jake now that he has exorcized his demons in a semi-autobiographical novel that earned him his teaching position. But is someone from Jake's past pulling him back? Is the attack revenge for something Jake once did?

The police don't seem too interested in finding Jake's assailants, even when his missing finger is mailed back to him. The detective in charge of the case seems more interested in Jake's criminal past. Meanwhile Diane, an art seller, takes off to a rendevous with an art collector and Jake sinks deeper into the bottle, convinced that Diane is preparing to leave him after only a month of marriage.

Jake is relieved when Diane returns home, but that relief is short-lived. He returns from work to find the house empty, but none of her clothes or other items gone. Jake's convinced she was kidnapped, but the police aren't so sure. Jake decides to do his own investigation and before you know it he's ducking crop dusters and scampering across the faces on Mt. Rushmore. (Oops, sorry, more Hitchcock references.) Let's just say that Jake isn't sure who to trust or what to believe anymore.

Already Gone is a fast-paced thriller with lots of twists and turns. It's one of those books that you can easily read in a day. It's a good thing it's meant to be read fast, too. By zipping through it, it's easy to overlook some of the book's flaws. Probably the weakest part of the book is Jake himself. Despite all the references to his criminal background, he seems utterly incapable of summoning any of his old self when threatened by the bad guys. As a result, he spends much of the book recuperating from injuries after getting smacked around. It became almost predictable, kind of like realizing 'hey, it's been 30 pages ... about time for Jake to suffer another beating.'

While I can't heap enough praise on Rector's previous novel, The Grove, Already Gone pales by comparison. For one thing, in The Grove the central mystery was an internal one. Solving it meant following a spiral in ever decreasing circles into the main character. Conversely, Already Gone's mystery is external to the main character and requires spiraling outward to incorporate ever-widening plots and conspiracies. It's not that either plot device is better; it's more that Rector handled the plot in The Grove far more deftly than he did in Already Gone.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Thrilling book until... 23. Dezember 2013
Von Wendy K - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
In this book, the author proves he has a strong ability to craft plot and a true gift for pacing. This is the only title I've read by him. Unfortunately, there seems to have been a rush to press in the last three chapters. His editor dropped the ball and didn't call him on it.

Suddenly the protagonist becomes wishy-washy. It defeats the subtle "Hero's Journey" theme of the book. After first identifying the protagonist as a person who is trying to get away from an allegedly dark past (which is never actually described), he suddenly becomes a killer who takes things too casually, including the death of someone dear to him. It's an extremely unlikely transition. Worst of all, the end is poorly conceived and unsatisfying. The whole book falls apart in the confusing, unrealistic and tedious last three chapters. There were so many potential plot endings, and the one that turned out was the least favorable of all in my opinion.

A little more thought and another week of effort on the author's part and this could have been a phenomenal book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not bad, a good read. 14. Mai 2017
Von jsmoiker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Good characters, nicely paced, I did think the main character got beat to smithereens a little too frequently, good unpredictable story line, stretched creditability a little but anything is possible I suppose. Ending a tad weak with a few unanswered plot questions, but an otherwise enjoyable read. I liked it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Psychological Thriller That I Read In One Day 8. November 2014
Von JohnnyApril - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
When I saw the preview for this book, my thought was whether or not I wanted to read it since the first scene was about Jake Reese getting his finger cut off. Not a great way to start a book but when I checked the preview, I was happy that the author didn’t make it graphic. Instead, I was intrigued since the mystery was about why two people would want to do something so brutal to someone like that in the first place.
From there, you could say that Already Gone by John Rector is a fast-paced psychological thriller that was on a high octane level from start all the way to the finish line. In this case, Jake Reese is living a nightmare that he may not get out of and I was wondering why this was happening to him.
If that wasn’t enough, seeing his wife disappear only brought out even more tension in the book. If anything, all this kept me glued to the book and I just kept turning the pages not knowing what was going to happen next. Like other psychological thrillers, Jake Reese seems to be on his own in finding out what happened to his wife as the mystery continues to unravel.
Rector kept me guessing throughout the novel as more characters were introduced. One of them was Gabby, a man from Jake’s past who may have the answers to why he was living in this nightmare. Being that Gabby was in the criminal underworld, Jake was reluctant to get in touch with him even after his wife demanded that he stay away from him.
Add some international intrigue to this novel and you have all the makings of a psychological thriller that made me read this book and finish it in one day, which was a first for me. As far as the ending goes, I think that people will not only be surprised at how the book ended but will feel satisfied since the ending will not be open ended.
If you’re a fan of psychological thrillers that have memorable characters like other great authors like Harlan Coben, Gregg Hurwitz, William Lashner, or Linwood Barclay, then I’m sure that you will enjoy Already Gone. It’s one of the best books that I have read this year and my only wish is that I can give it more than five stars.
