When coming up with a thriller title, sometimes it's best not to overthink it. Take Lisa Gardner's latest. One night, a sleepless woman goes for a drive and is abducted. She's... you guessed it. It's far from the only simple thing about Gone which adheres steadfastly to thriller form though Gardner manages to tweak expectations just enough to prevent crime novel déjá vu. Each character is a shade darker than usual. The victim, a former cop, is an alcoholic, and a young boy who might have clues to her whereabouts is a pyromaniac foster child. In the end, Gone's major strength is the chilly, damp setting in coastal Oregon: The book practically emits the feeling of wet forests and cold basements.
