    SURPRISE! Having reluctantly purchased a $49 nook to appease my husband, Marc, I chose a free eBook just to try it out and satisfy him. (I've always been the hands-on, hard-cover book type.) Boy, was I in for a pleasant experience. I love my little nook and I LOVED this amazing book. Why was I never aware of this talented author, before? "Gone The Next" will not be the last book I read by Ben Rehder, and I must look for a copy of the next Roy Ballard mystery in the series. The characters are very SURPRISE!

The characters are very likable and the storyline is fast-moving and fun to read. It never lags or gets boring. Great way to finish the year! Thank you Marc, thank you Ben Rehder, and thank you Barnes & Noble. Definitely recommend.

What I liked -The old-timey radio crime feel of the writing. Ballard talk to us, the reader. He's telling us a story. It's a great book to curl up to in front of a fire while imagining that there's a big old crackly radio in the corner carrying the staticky voice of a wise-cracking detective. -The story. The pacing was great. The sections that were devoted to the kidnapper's voice gave us insight and left us longing for the ultimate capture. What I didn't like -There was very little that I didn't like about this book other than the fact that at the last page I was truly left wanting more. I got this book as a free Kindle ebook via BookBub. #score !

    Book 1 in the Roy Ballard series published 2012. I picked up this book as a free bee quite some time ago and it’s been sitting on my kobo waiting to be read at some point in the future.

After recently reading a positive review on this book by a GR friend I decided the future had arrived. All I can say is ‘WOW’ what a great read it turned out to be. Roy Ballard was at the park with his young daughter just having some fun, enjoying the moment. In the blink of an eye the girl was there one moment and gone the next. This moment changed Roy’s life forever. Not only did his daughter go missing but his marriage came to a crashing end. That was several years ago now and life has moved on. Roy is now a videographer working for insurance companies trying to uncover insurance fraud. When Roy hears that a young girl has been abducted he is taken back to that horrendous day when is own child was stolen. Whilst pursuing the case he is working at the present Roy is convinced that he sees the missing girl in the company of, no other than, the man he is investigating. Roy takes his concerns to the police but they show no interest in what Roy has to say. But Roy is unable to let this go and decides to pursue it on his own. What follows is a tense tale of discovery and the more Roy digs the more tense the tale becomes. There’s lots of ‘off the cuff’ dry humour that helps to lighten the mood. The end was a surprise I didn’t see coming. All in all this was a damned good, 4 Star, read.

    Roy Ballard worked freelance, hired by insurance companies to find fraud cheats. His latest case was progressing in its usual mundane and boring way when Roy spotted a small child with the person he was watching. Was that Tracy Turner, the six-year-old who’d been abducted only the day before? Roy was sure it was – but what was he to do? The police didn’t believe his story so it seemed quite obvious that Roy, along with his new partner Mia, would have to investigate on their own… Gone the Next is Roy Ballard worked freelance, hired by insurance companies to find fraud cheats.

Wry humour along with sarcastic wit; plenty of twists and a mystery which became more dangerous the closer Roy came to answers. There was a blend of past mystery which mimicked the current one – well written and thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommended (and it’s free on Amazon ATM)

    Rehder's Blanco County series was full of humor and wacko characters. Gone The Next is a full on mystery about an abducted girl. I enjoy authors who have the ability to shift gears and still put out a good read. This is listed on Amazon as 'Roy Ballard Mysteries, Book 1'. I'm looking forward to reading more in this series.

    "Classy mystery" There's a phrase we use over here for something that's a cut above the rest - 'different gravy'. Roy Ballard is a videographer, or a master investigator, take your pick. A child goes missing, and he thinks he spots her while on a totally different case. The devil is in the detail; it's handled with great precision by Ben Rehder. The thread of humour that runs throughout this book helps keep you entertained and the sub-plots never let the tension, or the mystery slacken. Super.

I read this on the Kindle app on my iPhone, and every time a page ended with a hyphenated word, the rest of the sentence was missing from the next page. Very annoying! I figured out about half-way through the book that if I increased or decreased the font size, the missing part of the sentence would magically appear, so I no longer had to lose pieces of the book periodically, but it was kind of annoying to have to change font sizes in order to keep reading. First World problem, as they say. A small de traction from an otherwise excellent book that I will be recommending to anyone who loves a good mystery.

I am not sure how realistic the interaction with the cops would have been, but it was amusing banter for sure. This book followed the formula of "give away the kidnapper, then let the investigators figure out the how and why." There were plenty of twists involving the bad guy, and Rehder manages to make the "why" and "who else" interesting. I did NOT like how at first, the italics were the kidnapper's POV...then it was a lady..then a different detective... Very confusing. There was some storytelling at the end of the book that could have easily covered those other storylines, and the italics could have been left for only the kidnappers. Anyway though - as I said, I already have book 2 downloaded and would not hesitate to recommend this book and author to anyone who is a fan of the genre!

    As a Texan, this review may be a little biased considering the book is set in Texas. The story was engaging and I loved the characters.

Mia was a great grounding character for Roy and she was a great balance to him. The author developed the chemistry between Roy and Mia with some great banter that seemed natural to each way the character was portrayed. The mystery definitely grabs you from the beginning and the author builds the suspense for both sides of the story. Roy’s reactions as the mystery deepens seem realistic and not too extreme in any sense. The only issues with the story I think relate to the audiobook version – it was very difficult to keep all the timelines organized and then there was an extended time at the end where the author closing out loose ends that may the story drag a little. The narrator Johnny Peppers did an excellent job. I can some other reviewers didn’t like the narration but I did. He was telling me a story and I was listening with rapt attention. I didn’t need different characterizations to keep me engaged.

I like Ben Rehder portrayal of her characters and the way they interact with each other throughout Gone The Next. Ben Rehder did a great job in describing his settings and engaging me with the plot of Gone The Next. The readers of Gone The Next will see the devastation for the parents when their child goes missing. Also, the readers of Gone The Next will learn about the role and procedures to be a freelance videographer for insurance companies. I recommend this book.

    I really enjoyed this Roy Ballard Mystery book. The MC Roy Ballard is flawed but a good guy at heart. He is deeply affected by something that happened to his daughter years earlier. I also liked his partner Mia and her wit and wisdom. Great first book for a series.

    An entertaining easy read Roy Ballard makes a living investigating insurance fraud. While on a stakeout. he thinks he sees a little girl who matches the description of a missing child recently in the news. Unfortunately, the police don't take him seriously because a few years before, his own child went missing, and he went off the deep end. This is an easy to read psychological thriller. It didn't leave an impression on me so strong that I'll still be thinking about it a month from now. In fact, An entertaining easy read Roy Ballard makes a living investigating insurance fraud.

Roy Ballard has joined the list of my favorite fictional characters. The plot is strong, except for the protagonist's sidekick. She is like the female counterpart in many Bollywood movies - adds nothing of significance to the storyline, but is present just for the sake of it. Will I read the next book in the series? Definitely. At this time, I will read anything that features Roy Ballard in the primary role. Verdict: Highly recommended.

    I know you're not supposed to judge a book by its cover but I have to admit that I almost passed over this gem because of it. It looks rather unprofessional and it didn't give me any clues about what I would find inside. But I took a chance and, happily, found an intriguing main character, super sharp dialog, a plot that kept me up late reading, and an author well-worth pursuing.

So, this Mary Sue character who everyone likes/wants to sleep with violates his parole when he runs into the house, winds up getting shot point-blank with a .357 ('tis only a flesh wound!), traumatizes a little girl, and forces a police officer to kill the girl's uncle before her eyes, which will in turn likely traumatize the officer for the rest of his life.

Instead of going to jail, being reviled by the public, losing his business, and having his life otherwise made a living hell by the officer in charge (completely justified, btw), Roy Ballard's parole mysteriously and conveniently disappears, he survives the gunshot with only slight discomfort, is treated as a hero by the media, is completely let off the hook by everyone he knows because he's just so awesome, actually gets an increase in business, and he banters back and forth with the officer in charge before the officer then tells him everything he wants to know about the case's resolution. What, the author couldn't work in a scene where Ballard's massive dick tears a hole in space-time, opening a stable wormhole into the All right, all right, all right dimension where everything is made out of frozen margaritas and queso?

I liked how he weaved Roy's own loss alongside the abduction of young Tracy in the book-that was well done. There were some very funny lines in it throughout but thankfully he stayed this side of funny and it didn't turn into a tiresome comedy. I liked he used his own photography for his cover as well. It wasn't without nitpicky mistakes like hundreds being used when it should've been hundred and he persisted in leaving out the apostrophe in friends' list which was annoying then mind used in place of minds. The biggest error I spotted was queued used instead of cued which isn't too shabby at all. It's certainly one I'd highly recommend-a gripping read.

    This was a wonderful easy reading crime drama. Roy Ballard, videographer and fraud investigator, stumbles across a child abduction case in the process of one of his work assignments. He is funny and droll and actually solves the case. It is well written and good entertainment.

    Interesting debut of a new character, an insurance fraud videographer \semi amateur detective. Good not absolutely great story line but it was original. Some characters a bit stereotypical ( hard boiled police detective, wisecracking hero) but I enjoyed it overall and might give this series a second chance.

With well-rounded characters, a likable hero even, there are twists and turns to keep about anyone turning the pages; and yet there is not a lot of foul language, gratuitous sex, or violence (for which I am eternally grateful). Just a very good tale of mystery, murder, and intrigue.

    In my mind? Author Ben Rehder hits a home run in Gone the Next, a fast-paced mystery with fabulous and funny repertoire. That's particularly true in his conversations with Mia, a woman with whom he works and maintains a "push me, pull me" relationship. Yeah. A developing love relationship going on there.

That's particularly true in his conversations with Mia, a woman with whom he works and maintains a "push me, pull me" relationship. Yeah. A developing love relationship going on there. But first, some quick background: Ballard is a videographer who works mostly for insurance companies trying to discern the truth behind questionable claims from falls or illnesses. He follow those claimants and surreptitiously watches what they do. Back issue? Then why is the claimant bowling? Yep, Ballard captures it on video, submits it and his job is done. On the down side is Ballard's tragic and well-documented history in the mysterious disappearance of his young daughter decades earlier. The daughter was never found and as the father, well, fathers are always prime suspects — a problem that dogs Ballard emotionally and professionally nearly always. Thus, you can imagine his interest in a case that involves someone else's missing daughter and his pursuit of information even when he's repeatedly told to back off. I needn't tell you the conclusion. Let's just say that for a videographer he makes a damned fine detective. With Mia working with him, his information gathering is all the faster and better, despite plenty of setbacks and false leads. Ben Redher, who writes in first person, is one of the most skillful authors I've discovered who can pen a story so smoothly, so believably, and so wonderfully paced. You won't get bored. You won't hit overly done descriptive passages. You'll just get hooked. Worthy of being slammed onto your no-doubt bulging "to be read" pile. Get it, anyway. And then consider adding more of the author's "Roy Ballard Mysteries." This one was No. 2 in the series. I'll be grabbing up others, myself.
