Description-

  • "Long Gone is a tremendous novel, and Alafair Burke is one of the finest young crime writers working today."
    —Dennis Lehane, author of Moonlight Mile

    Echoing the intensity of Harlan Coben's Tell No One and the psychological depth of Laura Lippman's What the Dead Know, Alafair Burke's first stand-alone novel catapults her into the top ranks of modern suspense. In New York City's cut-throat world of art, appearances can be deceiving—especially when art world newcomer Alice Humphrey becomes a suspect in a gruesome murder at a Chelsea gallery, and is thrown into a treacherous labyrinth of intrigue, crime, and conspiracy. Now, Alice must discover the truth behind the murder before the unsolved mystery claims her as its next victim.

About the Author-

  • Alafair Burke is the New York Times bestselling author of ten previous novels, including the standalone thrillers Long Gone and If You Were Here, and the Ellie Hatcher series: All Day and a Night, Never Tell, 212, Angel's Tip, and Dead Connection. She is also the coauthor of the Under Suspicion series with Mary Higgins Clark. A former prosecutor, she is now a professor of criminal law and lives in Manhattan.

Reviews-

  • Publisher's Weekly

    May 16, 2011
    Near the outset of this impressive novel of suspense from Burke (212), her first stand-alone, 37-year-old Alice Humphrey, the daughter of controversial film director Frank Humphrey, meets charming Drew Campbell at a sparsely attended Manhattan art opening; he asks if she would like to manage the fledgling Highline Gallery. While the job appears too good to be true, Alice, who's been unemployed for eight months, accepts the offer. All goes well until Alice finds Drew dead in the gallery a few weeks later. The police regard Alice as the prime suspect in the murder of "Drew Campbell," who was not the man he claimed to be. Evidence against her includes paperwork supposedly showing that she leased the gallery space. Feeling trapped, Alice wonders if she's being set up and if it has anything to do with her famous father. Alice must dig deep into her family's checkered history if she's to prove her innocence. Burke skillfully orchestrates the mounting tension and claustrophobia of Alice's world collapsing in on itself.

  • Les Roberts, Cleveland Plain Dealer

    "Blistering.... As carefully plotted as a surgeon's heart transplant.... [Burke] writes with style, class and precision; just try to guess the identity of the killer here. A-"

  • Lisa Scottoline, New York Times-bestselling author of Save Me

    "Alafair Burke's first standalone is an absolutely riveting must read--and the ending is a shocker you'll never see coming."

  • Dennis Lehane, New York Times-bestselling author of Moonlight Mile

    "Long Gone is a tremendous novel, and Alafair Burke is one of the finest young crime writers working today."

  • Lisa Unger, New York Times-bestselling author of Darkness My Old Friend

    "Long Gone is a red-hot firecracker of a thriller with all the right stuff-perfect pacing, plotting, and suspense. If you already love Alafair Burke's novels, buckle up for her best book ever. If you haven't read her yet, the time is now."

  • Nelson DeMille, New York Times-bestselling author of The Lion

    "Alafair Burke understands the criminal mind. Long Gone is both an education and an entertainment of the first order. This is a very clever and very smart novel by a very clever and smart writer. The dialogue crackles, the plot is intriguing, and the pacing is perfect."

  • Jeff Ayers, Associated Press

    "Addictive.... Alafair Burke delivers her best book to date with her first stand-alone thriller.... A masterful read. Humphrey is an everywoman, and readers will care about what happens to her.... Compelling."

  • Karin Slaughter, New York Times-bestselling author of Fallen

    "Long Gone is the type of book that should come with a warning. It's a compulsively readable, highly addictive story. The ending will leave you breathless."

  • Romantic Times (4 ½ Stars)

    "Burke's first stand-alone novel is a chilling psychological thriller which weaves disparate characters together in a web of revenge, deceit and betrayal. This clever, twisting plot serves up numerous victims and numerous criminals--plus police who can't be bothered with the truth."

  • Carole E. Barrowman, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

    "Sensational.... Exciting.... Alice is a compelling heroine and the nightmare she finds herself dropped into is scary believable."
