How well do you know your boss?
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.

LONG GONE is a thrill ride for anyone who loves a good mystery/suspense story. Alice, with all of the best intentions to stand on her own, thinks she's gotten a lucky break when Drew Campbell hires her to manage a gallery. Things go wrong when Drew is found dead and Alice finds herself a prime suspect in more than just a murder. Start reading early, because you will be up late in to the night eager to discover the truth.
