Reviews

"Outstanding....Burke's accuracy in legal and judicial technicalities is impressive although most readers will find simpler pleasures in her sharp writing, well-constructed plot, and dimensional characters."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Captivating.... Burke excels in writing compelling character-driven stories mixed with baffling mysteries."--Associated Press
"If You Were Here is a winner: a suspenseful, tightly plotted story of friendship, lies, and betrayal. Alafair Burke writes deftly about secrets buried close to home. An accomplished novel by an assured author."--Meg Gardiner, author of The Shadow Tracer
"After finishing If You Were Here, I don't feel I can trust anyone ever again, except Alafair Burke to provide a cracking good read."--Linwood Barclay, author of Trust Your Eyes

"The plot complexity of this richly populated book keeps the action pumping, but it is the delicate shifts in perception that intrigue...keeps readers edgily engaged."--Houston Chronicle

"Nicely crafted, plenty of suspense to go around, a couple of unanticipated twists - what's not to like?"--BookPage
"You know you are in good hands with her, and can relax without wondering if things are going to fall apart midway through. ...Burke's female characters are always very involving, with big, strong voices."--Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl, in O, the Oprah Magazine
"One of the more-talented crime writers working today."--Pittsburgh Tribune
"Fast-paced nail-biter."--National Examiner
