In If You Were Here by Alafair Burke, a young pickpocket is pulled from the tracks of a subway station seconds before an oncoming train's arrival. When a video of the incident briefly emerges it unlocks a mystery that goes back over a decade.
Alafair Burke's books include her Samantha Kincaid series, the standalone thriller Long Gone, and her highly acclaimed series starring NYPD Detective Ellie Hatcher, the most recent of which, Never Tell, was a Kindle bestseller. A former Deputy District Attorney in Portland, Oregon, Alafair is now a Professor of Law at Hofstra Law School, where she teaches criminal law and procedure. If You Were Here marks her debut on the Faber list, and will be followed by a new Ellie Hatcher novel in 2015.
I absolutely love Alafair Burke - she's one of my favorite authors. I know it's summer when I have one of her books in my hands. IF YOU WERE HERE is her best yet. Highly recommended. Karin Slaughter After finishing If You Were Here, I don't feel I can trust anyone ever again, except Alafair Burke to provide a cracking good read. Linwood Barclay, author of No Time For Goodbye If You Were Here is a winner: a suspenseful, tightly plotted story of friendship, lies, and betrayal. Alafair Burke writes deftly about secrets buried close to home. An accomplished novel by an assured author.
