“Kiss Her Goodbye delivers with nonstop pacing, breathless prose, and page-turning urgency. Provocative and edgy, this book is sure to be the thriller of the year and Robert Gregory Browne the next big thing in heart-stopping fiction.”
—Kathy Mackel, author of The Hidden

“Kiss Her Goodbye is a first-rate novel that will glue you to your chair until you finish the last satisfying word.”
—Gayle Lynds, author of The Last Spymaster

“Kiss Her Goodbye is a taut, absorbing page-turner. Robert Gregory Browne makes his mark with a compelling thriller filled with twists and surprises. A writer to watch!”
—Carla Neggers, author of The Widow


Publishers Weekly

Provocative violence, a colorful Chicago background and a dollop of the supernatural lift Browne's debut thriller. ATF agent Jack Donovan almost captures his nemesis, ruthless gangster Alex Gunderson, during a bank robbery. Gunderson's amoral pregnant wife, Sara, is shot in the ensuing chase, leaving her in a coma. Gunderson seeks revenge by kidnapping Donovan's teenage daughter, Jessica, and burying her in a coffin with enough air for three days.

As the tension builds, a vainglorious Chicago cop shoots the kidnapper, who dies without revealing Jessica's whereabouts. Browne's experience as a screenwriter shows as he shorthands the parallels between the anarchic Gunderson and straight-arrow Donovan, both of whom are single-minded and personally loyal. Elements of the supernatural, including out-of-body experiences, provide humorous relief from the breathtaking pace.

This is not great literature. I'm not sure I can even call it good genre fiction. But if you can deal with a crime thriller with a heavy dose of the supernatural/paranormal, this can be a real page-turner. It wasn't the sort of tale I could really believe, but I could suspend disbelief and enjoy the story. I definitely wanted to know how it turned out.Jack Donovan is a Chicago-based ATF agent and former CPD detective. His chief nemesis kidnaps his daughter and taunts him with the knowledge that she has been buried alive with a limited air supply. This prompts an increasingly frantic investigation, and some risky behavior by Jack. In the process, this skeptic agent faces questions of what happens when we die? when a heart stops and is revived by a medic? Things begin to get very strange.Lots of people die in this book. Suffice it to say, some are deader than others.
