Long Gone by Alafair Burke

This book had a lot going for it.  A female protagonist floundering along her career path, something I can relate to well.  A current plot hook to drive the story, identity theft connected to social media.  A Hollywood royal family rounds out the cast of characters.  All of these factors should add up to a great book, but for some reason it was just okay, not great.  I didn’t really feel that sense of suspense that you want to feel building in a thriller.  There were no feelings of dread or foreboding.  I just read through to the end with no real feeling of anticipation for the resolution.  I can’t point to any one attribute of the book that caused this lack of emotional response to it, but nonetheless there it is.
