"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.

Back cover copy

After months of struggling, Alice Humphrey finally lands her dream job managing a trendy new Manhattan art gallery. According to Drew Campbell, the well-heeled corporate representative who hires her, the gallery is a passion project for its anonymous, wealthy owner. Everything is perfect until the morning Alice arrives at work to find the gallery gone--the space stripped bare as if it had never existed--and Campbell's body on the floor. Suddenly she's at the center of a police investigation with the evidence stacked against her, and the dead man whom she swears is Drew Campbell identified as someone else entirely.

When the police discover ties between the gallery and a missing girl, Alice knows she's been set up. Now she has to prove it--a dangerous search for answers that will entangle her in a dark, high-tech criminal conspiracy and force her to unearth long-hidden secrets involving her own family . . . secrets that could cost Alice her life.
