Ellie Cavanaugh was only seven years old when her fifteen-year-old sister, Andrea, was murdered near their home in a rural village in New York's Westchester County. There were three suspects: Rob Westerfield, nineteen-year-old scion of a wealthy, prominent family whom Andrea has been secretly dating; Paul Stroebel, a sixteen-uear-old schoolmate, who had a crush on Andrea, and Will Nebels, a local handyman in his 40s.

It was Ellie who had led her parents to a hideout in which Andrea's body was found -- a secret hideaway where she met her friends. And it was Ellie who was blamed by her parents for her sister's death for not telling them about this place the night Andrea was missing. Ellie's testimony eventually led to the conviciton of the man she was convinced was the killer. Steadfastly denying his guilt, he spent the next twenty-two years in prison.

When he comes up for parole, Ellie, now an investigative reporter for an Atlanta newspaper, protests his release. Nonetheless, the convicted killer is set free and returns to Oldham. Determined to thwart his attempts to whitewash his reputation, Ellie also returns to Oldham, intent on creating a Website and writing a book that will conclusively prove his guilt. As she delves deeper into her research, she uncovers horrifying and unknown facts that shed new light on her sister's murder. With each discovery, she comes closer to a confrontation with a desperate killer. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanne | 2/20/2014

    " This was a good read. I haven't read any Mary Higgins Clark books prior but now, I'll look under the "c's" on the "trade library" shelves as we travel along. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Merritt | 2/19/2014

    " I know many of you have had the pleasure, but I have just recently discovered Mary Higgins Clark. I love mystery and trying to figure out what is going on. I have just read two of her books, but have now become a fan. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joel | 2/12/2014

    " I read this book in two days. Fastest I ever read a book. I also read around the time of the Martha Moxley case. It is the only MHC book I have read and I did love it. The plot keeps getting more interesting as facts become unraveled. If you like mystery and a good protagonist and a very unlikeable antagonist then this is for you. The only reason I give it 3 stars and not 4 is because it is a little predictable. If i could I would give 3.5 stars. I reserve 5's for only the most captivating of books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandra | 11/11/2013

    " Another very good mystery by Mary Higgins Clark. Although we pretty much know who the criminal is at the beginning, the mystery was seeing if he would be appropriately punished for his crimes. A good sub-plot about coming to terms with your past and moving forward into the future. "

    " I love reading Mary Higgins Clark books she always keeps you guessing. This was a real good and quick read. I loved that she had you guessing who the real killer was till almost the end. Everytime you thought you knew who it was she would make you doubt yourself and wonder again. "
