In Rachel Howzell Hall's And Now She's Gone, Isabel Lincoln is missing - but does she want to be found? After working as a contractor for Rader Consulting for two years, Grayson Sykes is keen to be a PI, but stumbles at every turn. Her boss, Nick Rader, has just assigned her first real case, to locate a man's missing girlfriend - Isabel.

The client is an arrogant cardiologist who seems more concerned about retrieving his dog than getting his girlfriend back. The more she finds out about him, the more Gray dislikes him - and worries about Isabel's fate. Then she hears from the missing woman, who begs her to stop looking, fearing for her life. This brings back bad memories of Gray's own past with an abusive ex.

But nothing is as it seems in a case that gets more confusing at every turn, but seems to center on insurance fraud. As Gray pursues her investigation, her ex moves closer to her, bent on revenge. Though the plot is interesting, I have to say that I found it hard to follow and the story's characterization off key.
