Have You Seen Me? is a psychological suspense novel which begins will Ally Linden arriving at her office, only to be told she hasn't worked there for years. She has to uncover what event could have made her lose her memory and why she feels as if someone doesn't want her to remember what happened. 

McDonald said: "I instantly fell for Have You Seen Me?’s compelling concept – what if you lost your memories, and someone was trying to stop you from recovering them? Kate is a hugely talented writer, already a star in her native US, and I’m very proud to bring her onto Avon’s list."

White, who has written 14 previous novels, commented: "I’m in awe of female British suspense authors – from Agatha Christie to Ruth Rendell to Alex Marwood – and I’m absolutely delighted to have my latest thriller published in the UK with Avon."
