If Something Happens to Me - a fast-paced, highly entertaining mystery thriller.

Five years ago, Ryan and his girlfriend Alison were parked on the local Lovers' Lane. Ryan is rendered unconscious by a man who attacks them. When he awakens, Alison is gone. The car is gone and everyone in his hometown of Leavenworth, Kansas suspects the tall, popular high school basketball star of murder. Recent DNA evidence has tied a serial killer to the murder of Alison and Ryan is now a law student, hoping to help others. While on vacation in Italy, he learns that the car from that dreaded night has been found in a lake with two bodies inside. Also found is an envelope from Alison that reads: "If something happens to me…" and inside is a coded message. It also happens to be the first day on the job for Deputy Sheriff Poppy McGee, who is determined to figure out the mystery as she is not convinced the true killer has been identified. In Tuscany, Ryan believes he has spotted the man who attacked him the night Alison disappeared, and he goes in pursuit of him. One thing he's never forgotten about the man is that each hand was missing the pinky finger. In a seemingly unrelated incident, a Philadelphia mob boss experiences an unimaginable loss and now he's out for revenge.

There's a lot going on in Alex Finlay's new and exciting book If Something Happens to Me. Grab some popcorn and prepare to be entertained. This fast-paced thriller will keep you on your toes. With three storylines, locales and points of view, the action is kept at a high level. The characters are all intriguing and there are some top-notch surprises awaiting. Finlay has kept his spot on my must-read author list.
