Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If You Were Here is a thrilling novel of suspense from Alafair Burke, the author Dennis Lehane calls “one of the finest young crime writers working today.”
 
Manhattan journalist McKenna Jordan is chasing the story of an unidentified woman who heroically pulled a teenaged boy from the subway tracks. When she locates a video that captures part of the incident, she thinks she has an edge on the competition scrambling to identify the mystery heroine, but is shocked to discover that the woman in the video bears a strong resemblance to Susan Hauptmann, a close friend who disappeared without a trace a decade earlier.
 
What would have been a short-lived metro story sends McKenna on a dangerous search for the missing woman—a search that will force her to unearth long-buried truths much closer to home…

Synopsis:

Chasing a hot story, magazine journalist McKenna Jordan uncovers unexpected information that sends her back to the past, to the disappearance of a close friend—a classmate of her husband's at West Point—who vanished without a trace a decade ago.

McKenna always believed the truth went deeper than the police investigation ever reached. To find answers, the former prosecutor-turned-reporter embarks on a twisting search that leads across New York City—and into dark secrets buried dangerously close to home. . . .
