Former U.S. Marshal Simon Fisk now works as a private contractor, tracking down and recovering children who were kidnapped by their own estranged parents. He only has one rule: he won’t touch stranger abduction cases. He’s still haunted by the disappearance of his own daughter years ago when she was just a child, still unsolved, and stranger kidnappings hit too close to home.

Until, that is, six-year-old Lindsay Sorkin disappears from her parents’ hotel room in Paris, and the French police deliver Simon an ultimatum: he can spend years in a French jail for his actions during a past case, or he can work with them now to find Lindsay Sorkin. So, Simon sets out in pursuit of the missing child and the truth behind her disappearance. But Lindsay’s captors did not leave an easy trail, and following it will take Simon across the continent, through the ritziest nightclubs and the seediest back alleys, into a terrifying world of international intrigue and dark corners of his past he’d rather never face again.

With lightning-fast pacing and a twist behind every turn, Douglas Corleone's Good as Gone is a gripping race against the clock for a young girl with her life on the line and a man who has nothing left to lose.

Book Excerpts

Read an Excerpt

Chapter 1

I was resting in the rear of a taxi heading north out of the city on our way to Charles de Gaulle when I first heard the sirens. I opened my eyes and watched the red needle on the speedometer drop steadily as the driver turned the wheel to the right. In the rearview I glimpsed a half-dozen white Peugeots topped with flashing light bars bearing down on us. As we pulled to the shoulder, two of the cruisers skidded to a halt diagonally just in front of us, two boxed us in on the side, and the remaining vehicles screamed to a stop at our tail.

Praise for Good As Gone

Good as Gone goes from zero to 60 in under six seconds and never lets off the gas! If you like your thrillers filled with nonstop action in a race against time through Europe's underbelly, hop in and take a ride.”ANDREW GROSS

Good as Gone delivers a lightning-fast pace, surprising and heartfelt twists, and action aplenty.”JEFF ABBOTT

Good as Gone is everything I want in a thriller—an ingenious plot, breathless pace, and one of the coolest new heroes to come along in years. My only question is, when can I read the next Simon Fisk thriller?” DAVID ELLIS

Good as Gone is the can't-put-it-down thriller of the year that propels Douglas Corleone into Lee Child territory. Yeah, it's that good.”JASON STARR

Good as Gone is as good as it gets.  Simon Fisk is a fascinating character, and Doug Corleone has crafted one hell of a thriller.  It is a pleasure to recommend this nonstop novel to my readers.”—MICHAEL PALMER

“A terrific international thriller. I expected to be entertained when I picked up a novel by Douglas Corleone and was rewarded handsomely. Highly recommended.”JAMES GRIPPANDO

“Fast paced and lean…Simon Fisk, the former U.S. marshal who makes his living finding children who have been abducted by their estranged parents, is an excellent character…Once the story kicks into high gear, which is pretty much at the top of page 2, it doesn’t let up, period..”—Booklist (starred review)

“If James Bond were in the business of rescuing kidnapped children, he might easily be mistaken for Simon Fisk, the haunted hero of this slam-bam thriller from Corleone…An adrenaline rush with a character worth rooting for.”—Publishers Weekly
