Hell and Gone by Duane Swierczynski








Hell and Gone an apt title, Hell for a place comparable to hell, and Gone as in gone of the Grid a ghost vanished. Think in the lines of a rendition a removal of a subject/person and gone as-well as dead. There is a lot out there that we don’t know about, Ghost planes and Ghost prisons to name a few, locations unknown to but of few pen pushing top executives. Charlie Hardie the man who is the best at guarding Homes possessions and people now finds himself in the tightest jam to date prison guarding,
but Where?
And Why?
And Who sent him there?
You going to have to read this novel to find out. Yet again an explosive story from the likes of Duane Swierczynski the author. I loved the first Hardie installment, Fun and Games and this is another treat of a story intricate plotted and cleverly put together in the most interesting locations yet. We have all heard of Alcatraz, Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib prisons. There are psychological experiments out there that studied the way humans behave in captivity and how power control shifts amongst prisoners and prison staff. Someone is pressing the buttons in this prison that Charlie Hardie finds himself in and playing one against another.
The problem with these hard ass guys like Charlie is that they have baggage, strings attached a weak spot, with family in the balance he is going to have to tread carefully.
