Hi there, it depends on how the file was sent to you. Was it via a shared link? Did they add it to a shared folder that you’re a member of?
 
Any info you can provide would be helpful!

If the files are in your Dropbox account, try running a search for them. You can also check your deleted files page to see if the file was deleted.
 
If they shared it to your via a shared link, then the file isn’t stored on your account. You’ll need to locate the link from wherever you got it originally, and then open it in the browser.
 
Bear in mind that if the person removed the file from their account, or deleted the link, then the link won’t be valid and you won’t be able to access the book without that person re-uploading it to the site.
 
Hope this helps to clarify matters!
