June 2013 Indie Next List
“If You Were Here is the story of a New York City prosecutor long fallen from grace, now working as a news reporter. McKenna Jordan unexpectedly stumbles across a recent photo of a close friend who disappeared nearly 10 years ago. Nothing is as it seems, not even the case that cost McKenna her career. Clever plot twists kept my nose buried until the very last page. Highly recommended for fans of Harlan Coben and Lisa Unger.”
— Bina Valenzano, The BookMark Shoppe, Brooklyn, NY
Chasing a hot story, magazine journalist McKenna Jordan uncovers unexpected information that sends her back to the past, to the disappearance of a close friend a classmate of her husband's at West Point who vanished without a trace a decade ago.
McKenna always believed the truth went deeper than the police investigation ever reached. To find answers, the former prosecutor-turned-reporter embarks on a twisting search that leads across New York City and into dark secrets buried dangerously close to home. . . .
