Goodreads synopsis: Imagine your wife disappears. When the police get involved you find yourself thrust into a world where everything you thought you knew about yourself was wrong, and the lies you’ve been living have caught up to you. Do you deny the truth or lose yourself to your demons? This is Jack Turner’s nightmare. This is All The Way Gone. With the police suspecting him, Turner learns you can never outrun yourself. The story turns on a series of seemingly unconnected events. Things become complicated as the two detectives assigned to the case begin following different threads, leading them in opposite directions. Can these men who’ve worked together for years survive their differences and come together to solve the case? Is Jack Turner involved in his wife’s disappearance? More importantly, will they find her in time? All The Way Gone will hold your attention from the first page to the last. You won’t be able to put it down. All The Way Gone is an all the way great read.

I liked this book. I’ve seen other reviews that have compared it to Gone Girl (which I haven’t read yet, but it is on my Nook waiting to be read). There were some scenes that I couldn’t really understand why the author had put them in there, how was it relating to the relationship between the wife and the husband and the ending. Sometimes you felt sorry for the husband, other times you felt like he deserved it. The ending was rather sad, but the author wrapped things up nicely.

I can definitely see the potential for spin-offs from this particular book, more into other cases that the police characters that we meet in the book could go into in the future.
