Beyond Gone
by Douglas Corleone

Return Specialist Simon Fisk is about to go on his most dangerous mission: rescuing the granddaughter of the US Secretary of State from terrorists.

Simon Fisk, a specialist in recovering abducted children, is on a routine case in Cape Town when he suddenly finds the body of the suspect he has been following. Believing he is being framed for murder, he runs and soon discovers the job was merely a ruse to lure him to the continent.

There, Simon will be tasked with his most dangerous mission yet: trekking through the African bush to locate a group of terrorists responsible for abducting the granddaughter of the US Secretary of State.

Although Simon prefers to work alone, he is accompanied by university professor Jadine Visser, an old flame, who quickly proves adept at survival. But why is she involved? And how will they locate the underground militant group bent on using the girl in a high-profile terror attack before it’s too late?


A starchy blend of action and suspense fueled by well-placed surprises that frequently upstage the violent set pieces
