My rating: 4 of 5 stars
He’s Gone by Deb Caletti is a dark trip through the life and mind of Dani Keller. It is full of secrets, regrets and questions, lots of questions. After a night of partying, Dani wakes up to find her husband, Ian gone, vanished, no note, nothing, just gone. As the mystery of his disappearance grows with each day, Dani has time to think on her life, and how she got to where she is today. Is Karma paying her back for her choices in life? Has Ian left her for another woman? Is he having an affair? After all, isn’t that how they got together? Is he just tired of trying to always be in control of every single situation? Has the conflicts at work with his partner gotten to be too much? Dani is a bit neurotic, a little insecure, always trying to please others, in a desperate search for her husband. When the police fail to find him and begin to look at her as a possible suspect in some type of foul play, she begins to question herself. Even her own searching turns up nothing but more questions, more doubts about their relationship.
Deb Calleti has penned a dark journey into the complexities of both the characters’ minds and their marriage. Speaking through Dani’s voice, she has brought us into the world of each character as seen by Dani with realistic and often painful insight. This story is a raw and unapologetic look at adultery and its consequence to all involved, while including a mystery that dares to be solved!
