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.

Praise For…


“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-”

“Alafair Burke’s first standalone is an absolutely riveting must read—and the ending is a shocker you’ll never see coming.”

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

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.”

“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.”

“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.”

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.”

“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.”

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