Aug-3-T-Library“If You Were Here” by Alafair Burke
Review by Gene Schinto

McKenna Jordan is a former New York City prosecutor turned journalist. Working on a story about an unidentified woman who saved a teenager from an oncoming subway train, McKenna views a video of the event. She strongly suspects the rescuer is Susan Hauptman, a close friend. Susan disappeared a decade ago, believed by the police to be dead. McKenna embarks on a search across Manhattan for the truth. This sets into motion a series of heart-pumping events to include false identities, betrayals, and more than one homicide.  “If You Were Here” with its highly complex plot is simply and carefully told. Alafair Burke’s novel of suspense keeps you guessing and not likely to guess right.
