“A master of the genre.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer
Jayne Ann Krentz, the New York Times bestselling author of Secret Sisters, delivers a thrilling novel of the deceptions we hide behind, the passions we surrender to, and the lengths we’ll go to for the truth...

Beautiful, brilliant—and reckless—Jocelyn has gone off the grid before, but never like this. In a desperate effort to find her, Charlotte joins forces with Max Cutler, a struggling PI who recently moved to Seattle after his previous career as a criminal profiler went down in flames—literally. Burned out, divorced and almost broke, Max needs the job.
After surviving a near-fatal attack, Charlotte and Max turn to Jocelyn’s closest friends, women in a Seattle-based online investment club, for answers. But what they find is chilling...
When her uneasy alliance with Max turns into a full-blown affair, Charlotte has no choice but to trust him with her life. For the shadows of Jocelyn’s past are threatening to consume her—and anyone else who gets in their way...

When all the girls have gone is an exciting, perfectly paced, romantic suspense novel. I loved every page of this brilliantly crafted book and found it impossible to put down.
Madison Benson, the founder, and mastermind behind an exclusive investment club, carefully handpicked each of her four members. Every member was aware before joining her club that there would be a certain amount of risk involved. If a dangerous situation arose, though, every member, was assured, that they would receive the warning code, via email, in time for them to go into hiding.
When one of the members, Louise Flint was found dead, and another member rushed to the hospital; Jocelyn emailed the emergency code to Madison and Emily. Someone had discovered the true meaning of their club, and their lives were now in danger. Unfortunately, their little anonymous internet investment game had turned deadly.
Charlotte Sawyer was shocked to hear that her step-sister’s best friend Louise was dead. She was equally unnerved when Max Cutler, a private investigator, informed her that her stepsister, Jocelyn was missing. Charlotte and Max teamed up to unravel the mystery of Louise’s death and Jocelyn’s disappearance. As the two worked together, missing pieces and deaths started to pile up, along with their attraction and emotional bond to each other.
This novel had so many twists and turns and layers that it kept me guessing until the end. When All The Girls Have Gone is meticulously crafted and highly entertaining. I loved it!
Many thanks to the publisher, and NetGalley, for my complimentary advanced review copy.
Who REALLY wrote this book?
I am not convinced that the author is Krentz. The plot is convoluted; characters are hardly developed, and there was no suspense or passion. Either Krentz is farming out her work or she's lost her edge. Save your money...
This book read like a Harlequin romance. The characters were poorly developed and unimaginative. The plot was thin and very predictable. I am very disappointed in this book and hope the next two are better quality. I hope for other genres are not affected with poor writing.
