In Manhattan, Drew Campbell hires thirty something Alice Humphrey to manage his new Highline Gallery. Unemployed for months Alice loves her job. However, a few weeks after starting Alice arrives at the gallery to find it empty except for Campbell's corpse. NYPD suspects she murdered her lover and has proof of a picture of them together in a very friendly pose. Furthermore they think she used the gallery that is in her name to her shock to distribute child porn.

A stunned Alice seeks information on Drew and the gallery, neither seems to have existed. At the same time a PTSD FBI agent unofficially investigates the death of his sister while a teenager in Upstate New York vanished without a trace. Alice, the fed and a small town cop will cross paths as each investigate seemingly unrelated crimes.

The three prime subplots are at times overwhelming; the Alice in the rabbit hole can definitely stand alone while the other two cannot. However each is an intense psychological suspense as someone struggles with what is going on whether it is Alice, the Fed or the teen's mom. Alice owns the tale as she learns identity is not as simple as it may seem.

HarperCollins has been extremely gracious to allow me to read an ARC of this novel, via Netgalley, prior to its release today. I must say that, overall, I enjoyed the novel, but I did struggle with it a little as well. I think that, for me, there were just too many characters and the jump between them all made the novel a little difficult for me to follow. By the end, of course, I was following it pretty well, but the beginning was difficult for me. If you're anything like me, I suggest sticking with the novel because, though the beginning may be confusing, Burke does a wonderful job putting together the murder mystery and I was flabbergasted in the end. I think Burke does a phenomenal job with the suspense in her novel and I never saw the ending coming. Multiple times I thought I'd pinpointed the murdered who'd set Alice up, but I was wrong time and time again. I really enjoy the guessing game that suspense novels evoke, and I recommend this novel to those who love a great mystery. Three stars.
