Find Me: Virtual Author Event with Alafair Burke

Thursday, January 20, 2022 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

With her newest, addictive thriller FIND ME, New York Times bestselling author Alafair Burke takes readers on a roller coaster ride, where three women’s search for long-buried secrets will upend everything they’ve ever known. Join us for a virtual event with Alafair!

Fans of Burke’s smart, twisty novels will not be disappointed with her newest standalone novel FIND ME (Harper, Hardcover; $26.99/ $33.50 Can; On-sale: 1/11/2022). The thriller features three strong women – a woman who can’t remember her past, her best friend who is a defense lawyer, and Burke’s imitable NYPD detective Ellie Hatcher. In pursuit of answers about long buried secrets, these three women’s search separately for the truth, but when their searches converge, what they find will upend everything they’ve ever known.  

She calls herself Hope Miller, but she has no idea who she actually is. Fifteen years ago, she was found in a small New Jersey town thrown from an overturned vehicle, with no clue to her identity. Doctors assumed her amnesia was a temporary side effect of her injuries, but she never regained her memory. Hope eventually started a new life with a new name in a new town that welcomed her, yet always wondered what she may have left behind—or had been running from. Now, she’s leaving New Jersey to start over once again.

Manhattan defense lawyer Lindsay Kelly, Hope’s best friend and the one who found her after the accident, understands why Hope wants a new beginning. But she worries how her friend will fare in her new East Hampton home, far away from everything familiar. Lindsay’s worst fears are confirmed when she discovers Hope has vanished without a trace—the only lead a drop of blood found where she was last seen. Even more ominously, the blood matches a DNA sample with a connection to a notorious Kansas murderer.

With nowhere else to turn, Lindsay calls NYPD homicide detective Ellie Hatcher, the daughter of the cop who dedicated his life to hunting the Kansas killer. Ellie has always believed there was more to the story of her father’s death twenty years earlier—and she now fears that Hope’s recent disappearance could be related.
