Product Description

Review

Praise for Long Gone:

Michael Connelly: ‘this is smart, hip and always keeps you guessing. This is Alafair Burke's break out book. It's going to be big.’

Dennis Lehane: ‘Alafair Burke is one of the finest young crime writers working today’.

Harlan Coben: ‘The plot of an Alafair Burke thriller doesn’t just rip from the headlines. She’s one step ahead of them.’

Lisa Unger: This is a red-hot firecracker of a thriller with all the right stuff—perfect pacing, plotting, and suspense.’

Product Description

A nail biting thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat.

When prep school junior Julia Whitmire is found dead in the bathtub of her family’s Upper East Side apartment, her left wrist slashed and suicide note resting on her dresser, Ellie Hatcher and her partner, J.J. Rogan initially write the case off as a suicide.

Julia’s parents insist that their daughter would never take her own life, but Ellie knows all too well that family members can be the last to accept the truth.

But when Julia’s mother appeals to her with the evidence – including a hand-written suicide note she believes her internet-obsessed daughter would never have composed – Hatcher is confronted with the possibility of a troubled young girl's murder.

More About the Author

Alafair Burke is the author of what the Sun-Sentinal has hailed as "two power house series" featuring NYPD Detective Ellie Hatcher and Portland Deputy District Attorney Samantha Kincaid. Alafair's novels grow out of her love for writing, her experience as a prosecutor in America's police precincts and criminal courtrooms, and her ability to create strong, believable, and eminently likable female characters. According to Entertainment Weekly, Alafair "is a terrific web spinner" who "knows when and how to drop clues to keep readers at her mercy."

A graduate of Stanford Law School and a former Deputy District Attorney in Portland, Oregon, Alafair is now a Professor of Law at Hofstra Law School, where she teaches criminal law and procedure.

Alafair is often asked about the origin of her name, especially by readers who are familiar with the fictional character, Alafair Robicheaux, featured in her father's novels. Alafair was named for her father's maternal grandmother. It was a more common name in the United States, particularly the south, at the turn of the twentieth century. Now it is a name that belongs to her, two of her cousins, and, from what she can find on Google, ten cats, two dogs, an alpaca, and a boat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple thriller which ticks all the boxes 3 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The plot is simple enough. A suicide looks solid enough. A body and a note but the mother will not accept that her daughter killed herself and so begins the plot-line. I've never read any of her stuff before but I tried this one and found it to be a great thriller which keeps you turning the pages. I will read more from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised! 15 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I don't usually read books if I've never heard of the author, but I'm glad I took a chance on this. Twists in every chapter, and a lot of different characters whose stories all get satisfactorily tied up. Worth a read and I look forward to reading more of her work.

This book would make a great movie.

A little bit slow but keeps the reader interested. Lots of characters that could benefit from expanding but not too predictable.

I do enjoy this author's writing, and this book was a well-written entertaining read. I did not see the "twist" until quite late on in the book either.
