Dead girls don't usually get to tell their story, but Alice Lee has always been different. When she arrived in New York on her 18th birthday carrying nothing but $600 cash and a stolen camera, Alice was looking for a fresh start. Now, just one month later, she is the city's lates...t Jane Doe, an unidentified murder victim. Ruby Jones is also trying to start over; she travelled halfway around the world only to find herself lonelier than ever. Until she finds Alice Lee's body by the Hudson River. From this first, devastating encounter, the two women form an unbreakable bond. Stuck somewhere between life and death, Alice is sure that Ruby is the key to solving the mystery of her life - and death. And Ruby - struggling to forget what she saw that morning - finds herself unable to let Alice go. Not until she is given the ending she deserves. Before You Knew My Name is about what happens to a woman's story - to her life - when it is cut short by a deliberate act of violence. Instead of asking whodunnit, this powerful, hopeful novel asks: Who was she? And what did she leave behind? The answers might surprise you.Read more
