Book Review - If You Were Here by Alafair Burke

This is well plotted and well written, holding interest to the last when there are extra twists and turns. Ambitious ex-prosecutor, McKenna Jordan is still paying for mistakes she made when a case went horribly wrong and she ended up losing her job. She sees a video which seems to suggest that an old friend, Sarah, is still alive although she has been missing presumed dead for many years. Sarah appears to have been caught up in a group of active eco-terrorists but nothing is as it seems as McKenna digs deeper into the secrets and evasions around her friend's disappearance. Believable characters with their own tragedies and flaws contribute to the story. The only clue I will give you is follow the money – it's so often good advice! Wendy
