Reminiscent of the bestsellers of Laura Lippman and Harlan Coben—with a dose of Big Little Lies or Stranger Things—an absorbing, addictive tale of psychological suspense from the author of the highly acclaimed and Edgar Award-nominated What Remains of Me and the USA Today bestselling and Shamus Award-winning Brenna Spector series, in which a seemingly open-and-shut police case with a clear-cut hero and villain turns out to be anything but simple.

Late one night in the quiet Hudson Valley town of Havenkill, a distraught woman stumbles into the police station—and lives are changed forever.

Aimee En, once a darling of the ’80s pop music scene, claims that a teenage boy stole her car, then ran over another young man who'd rushed to help.

As Liam Miller’s life hangs in the balance, the events of that fateful night begin to come into focus. But is everything as it seems?

The case quickly consumes social media, transforming Liam, a local high school football star, into a folk hero, and the suspect, a high school outcast named Wade Reed, into a depraved would-be killer. But is Wade really guilty? And if he isn't, why won't he talk?

Told from a kaleidoscope of viewpoints—Wade's mother Jackie, his younger brother Connor, Aimee En and Pearl Maze, a young police officer with a tragic past, If I Die Tonight is a story of family ties and dark secrets—and the lengths we'll go to protect ourselves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from :] This was a very good book full of twists and turns. It really kept me guessing who was the suspect and why they did what they did. If you’re looking for a good crime/mystery/family drama book, then look no further! Loved it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An Awesome Drama Mystery! This book is a mystery/thriller delight! A complete mix of murder mystery with character drama - I LOVED how Alison Gaylin pulled this story out from multiple perspectives. A washed up 80's pop/punk star turns up in a small town cop shop soaking wet and hysterical, claiming she was car jacked and a local teenager was killed trying to stop the crime. But who was this carjacker? And what really happened that night? Honestly, this one nearly surprised me with the sheer suspense of the storyline. The story is tight from start to finish, with characters that hit close to home and who were complex and terrifically flawed. We all know I love a flawed character!!! This one should be on your to-read pile for summer - it makes for quick reading on a sunny patio.
