Publisher Description

A USA Today Bestseller!

From “one of the genre’s most exciting voices” (E! News) comes one of the year’s most-anticipated thrillers.

For the past five years, Ryan Richardson has relived that terrible night. The car door ripping open. The crushing blow to the head. The hands yanking him from the vehicle. His girlfriend Ali’s piercing scream as she is taken.

With no trace of Ali or the car, a cloud of suspicion hangs over Ryan. But with no proof and a good lawyer, he’s never charged, though that doesn’t matter to the podcasters and internet trolls. Now, Ryan has changed his last name, and entered law school. He's put his past behind him.

Until, on a summer trip abroad to Italy with his law-school classmates, Ryan gets a call from his father: Ali's car has finally been found, submerged in a lake in his hometown. Inside are two dead men and a cryptic note with five words written on the envelope in Ali’s handwriting: If something happens to me…

Then, halfway around the world, the unthinkable happens: Ryan sees the man who has haunted his dreams since that night.

As Ryan races from the rolling hills of Tuscany, to a rural village in the UK, to the glittering streets of Paris in search of the truth, he has no idea that his salvation may lie with a young sheriff’s deputy in Kansas working her first case, and a mobster in Philadelphia who’s experienced tragedy of his own.

In classic Alex Finlay form, If Something Happens to Me is told by several distinct, compelling characters whose paths intersect, detonating into a story of twist after pulse-pounding twist. The novel cements Finlay as one of the leading thriller writers today.

Amazing thriller

I couldn’t put the book down. Such a suspenseful, captivating thriller!

Romance213 ,

Intriguing, complex and full of surprises!!

There are so many secrets and dangerous and sinister characters wreaking havoc throughout Alex Finlay’s latest thriller, “If Something Happens To Me.” From Leavenworth, Kansas, to Philadelphia, to Paris, we encounter the good, the bad and the survivors. Mr. Finlay has created a storyline and characters that are intriguing, complex and full of surprises. He reaches back to the past where it all began and weaves an intricate tale of family, devotion and revenge.

At first I thought the crimes began in Kansas, with the disappearance of Ali and the accusations against her boyfriend, Ryan, that he had played a part in this mysterious event. His explanation of what happened that night was foggy, he couldn’t prove anything, and he only had a faint recollection of an unknown man reaching into the car.
Ali was the love of his life and Ryan was never the same after that horrible night. The real question is why was Ali targeted and who was behind this diabolical scheme? We are given a trail of breadcrumbs that take us around the world as we meet the individuals who had the most to win and lose from finding Ali, because in the end, that is where it all started. I love all of Mr. Finlay’s books because they are thought-provoking, they stimulate my mind, and always leave me wanting more!
