Publisher's Summary

Based on an actual abduction that has never been solved, filled with drugs, violence, and lies. 

Missing - Gone but Not Forgotten is about the abduction of a little girl in a rural Florida community. Drugs, family feuds, underage sex, and lots of lies abound. Since this is a fictionalized version, my biggest challenge is to keep it exciting and still true to the real life case upon which the story is based. 

Excerpt: 

Jon unsnapped his gun from its holster but didn’t remove it. Clair reached toward the Colt Official Police Pistol strapped at small of her back and nodded at her partner to let him know she was ready and prepared for anything. 

Jon rapped hard on the door, “Sheriff's Department responding to your call. Please open the door.” 

When the trailer became silent and the door swung open, Clair's first thought was this was another child in the family. The person standing in the doorway was about five foot three or four, thin to the point of emaciated, with long brown hair straggling in her face. She was wearing a rumpled tee and a pair of skinny jeans and tennis shoes. Her large blue eyes with a totally blank expression gave the only hint that this was 17 year old Autumn Daily, the person reporting the missing child. She looked like she was stoned out of her mind on some strong chemicals. 

Behind her loomed a man a bit over six foot in his mid-20s. He had dark short hair, a small mustache, and weighing about 160 with enough muscle to take on either detective. His knuckles were bloody as if he had been punching something, or someone. He clarified that by slamming his fist into the trailer's side. “It's about damn time you get here. Some fucker took my daughter! If I find ‘em, I'll kill 'em so you better get them first.” 

“Calm down, Mr. Shatner. We're going to find whoever took your daughter but we need some background...."

Abducted or Not

This is a very scary story of child abduction and or murder who are never found and a psychopathic family with drug and physical abuse. It is sad they never found Star and what really happened to her. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Thank you

Pretty generic.

This was very, very loosely based on true events. The characters were stereotypical “white trash”, even their names were unoriginal. The only reason I gave it two stars, because at the end of the book, the author gives a short synopsis of actual abductions.

My book review

This was the first book I’ve read by this author.
based on a true unsolved case but written fictitiously.

Fictionalized unsolved mystery

This is a fictionalized account of an unsolved mystery, although speculation does offer some closure to this story. I guess I fail to see the point of
this book, though, since there are plenty of real true crime cases like this that could be written about.

Lee Ann Howlett's narration is excellent.
