And Then He Was Gone


Julie Raynes’ husband has been missing for six months. Devastated and confused, she refuses to believe that he would leave her voluntarily, though her best friend thinks differently. However, her Aunt Alice, a psychic, tells her Adam has been murdered, and when she reveals how she knows this, any hope that Adam is still alive, dissipates.

The police believe Adam Raynes was murdered. And Julie is their prime suspect. Her life in ruins, Julie vows to hunt down whoever is responsible for Adam’s murder and make them pay for their crime.

In the meantime, David Gray, a young man who was pulled from a lake by a fisherman when he was 9 years old, wakens from a coma after nearly two decades. Unknown to Julie, Adam and David share a dark connection, a darkness that threatens to devour them both, in a terrifying race with death.

"Joan Hall Hovey is a consummate storyteller, a master of vivid imagery - and she knows how to spin a dark tale. You’ll cheer for the heroine, a strong woman victimized by fate, and be truly afraid of the evil predator set loose in the pages of And Then He Was Gone.

This book will keep you reading into the wee small hours – and then you’ll have to turn out the light..."

Eden Monroe, Author Dare to Inherit
