When McKenna Jordan, a magazine journalist investigating the story of a heroic and unidentified woman, finds the video footage, she thinks she recognizes her as Susan Hauptmann. But Susan disappeared without a trace ten years earlier, having just introduced McKenna to her future husband, Patrick.
In this sublimely plotted mystery about marriage, private security and journalistic scandal, McKenna’s complex search for her missing friend forces her to unearth secrets that lie deep in all their pasts.
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.
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.
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.
