LONG GONE by Alafair Burke - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOKSee all titles by Alafair Burke
After a layoff and months of struggling, Alice Humphrey finally lands her
dream job managing a new art gallery in Manhattan’s trendy Meatpacking District.
According to Drew Campbell, the well-suited corporate representative who
hires her, the gallery is a passion project for its anonymous, wealthy, and
eccentric owner. Drew assures Alice that the owner will be hands off, allowing
her to run the gallery on her own. Her friends think it sounds too good to be
true, but Alice sees a perfect opportunity to make a name for herself beyond the
shadow of her famous father, an award-winning and controversial film maker.
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 Drew
Campbell’s dead body on the floor. Overnight, Alice’s dream job has vanished,
and she finds herself at the center of police attention with nothing to prove
her innocence. The phone number Drew gave her links back to a disposable phone.
The artist whose work she displayed doesn’t seem to exist. And the dead man
she claims is Drew has been identified as someone else.
When 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.
