Gone the Next - Ben Rehder Book Description

Meet Roy Ballard, freelance videographer with a knack for catching insurance cheats. He's working a routine case, complete with hours of tedious surveillance, when he sees something that shakes him to the core. There, with the subject, is a little blond girl wearing a pink top and denim shorts—the same outfit worn by Tracy Turner, a six-year-old abducted the day before. When the police are skeptical of Ballard's report—and with his history, who can blame them?—it's the beginning of the most important case of his life.  

Edgar and Shamus Award finalist Ben Rehder's novels have made best-of-the-year lists in Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, Kirkus Reviews, and Field & Stream. Reviews for Ben Rehder's novels:

“Murderously funny.” 
—Chicago Tribune

“Another of Rehder’s relentlessly twisted tales. Outrageous fun.” 
—Kirkus Reviews

“Wickedly funny.” 
—Dallas Morning News

“The odd cast of characters and bizarre plots and subplots make for a rollicking good read.” 
—Houston Chronicle

“Rehder has made the leap from writing skillful comic pleasantries to pulverizing satire.”
— Austin American-Statesman 

“Rehder writes with an assured hand and a knowing tip of the wide-brimmed cowboy hat to the ways and wiles of the characters that people his distinctly Texan landscape."

    This was an easy book to read and kept my interest. There was a mix of humor and mystery, and no REAL violence or hot sex which is exactly what I am looking for. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a book to read for entertainment.

    Mystery was exciting to read. Author Ben Rehder words reveal how twisted his story’s characters become. Yes, I will now read all of his published books.

    I am convinced that Ben Rehder is my new favorite author. I enjoyed his quirky first stories (I.e. Buck Fever) but have a new appreciation for the way he has developed his skills in story telling. I will be reading all of the Roy Ballard series and look forward to his future writings.

    This is my first book by this author and I couldn’t put it down. It’s a serious subject matter but the author is very witty and I had more than a few LOL moments. I’m ready for the next book in the Roy Ballard series!

    Kept me intrigued even though the lack of investigation by the law and more by a videographer seemed a bit unusual. Enjoyed the storyline and the characters.
  • Awesome!
