On The Cover: Long Gone by Alafair Burke

Picked this up as a quick read at an airport and quite liking the thriller.....called 'Long Gone' by Alafair Burke. Here's what the cover jacket says...

'Should come with a warning....highly addictive.' KARIN SLAUGHTER

IT WAS THE PERFECT SETUP......

 '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.

 When Alice arrives one morning, she walks into a nightmare: the gallery is empty, except for the dead body of Drew. Before she knows it, Alice finds herself at the centre of the police investigation.

 With every thread of the investigation leading back to Alice, she knows she has been set up. But who is out to get her?

 COMPULSIVELY READABLE AND MASTERFULLY PLOTTED. LONG GONE IS A NAIL-BITING THRILLER THAT WILL KEEP YOU GUESSING RIGHT UP TO THE LAST PAGE.

 'It's going to be BIG.' - MICHAEL CONNECLLY

 'The plot of an Alafair Burke thriller doesn't just rip from the headlines. She's one step ahead of them.' HARLAN COBEN'
