And now framed for murder…
‘Should come with a warning…highly addictive.’ Karin Slaughter
The nightmare is only just beginning…
After months of unemployment, Alice Humphrey lands her dream job – managing a Manhattan art gallery in the trendy Meatpacking District. According to recruiter Drew Campbell, the gallery is a passion of its anonymous owner, who remains uninvolved in its daily operations.
But she arrives one morning and walks into a nightmare: the space is empty except for the dead body of Drew Campbell. Alice soon finds herself at the centre of the police investigation.
When every thread of the investigation leads back to her, Alice knows she has been set up. But who is out to get her?
Compulsively readable and masterfully plotted, Long Gone will catapult Alafair Burke onto every bestseller list.
