Kay Lansing grew up in Englewood, New Jersey, daughter of the landscaper to the wealthy and powerful Carrington family. One day, accompanying her father to work, six-year-old Kay overhears a quarrel between a man and a woman that ends with the man's caustic response: "I heard that song before." That same evening, young Peter Carrington drives the nineteen-year-old daughter of neighbors home from a formal dinner dance at the Carrington estate, but she is not in her room the next morning and is never seen or heard from again.

Decades later, a cloud of suspicion hangs over Peter, not only for his neighbor's disappearance but also for the subsequent drowning death of his own pregnant wife in their swimming pool. But when Kay Lansing, now a librarian in Englewood, asks Peter's permission to hold a literary benefit cocktail party on his estate, she comes to see Peter as misunderstood...and when he begins to court her, she falls in love -- and marries him. However, she soon makes a discovery that leads her to question her husband's innocence. She believes that the key to the truth lies in the identities of the man and woman whose quarrel she witnessed as a child. What she does not realize is that uncovering what lies behind these memories may cost Kay her life. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “Clark deftly keeps the finger of guilt pointed in many directions until the surprising conclusion.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Jan Maxwell captures the duplicity, blackmail, and murder that surround the Carrington family. She portrays Kay Lansing, Englewood librarian and daughter of the Carringtons’ former landscaper, with a tone of naïveté…Clarks suspense and Maxwell’s rich characterizations will keep listeners guessing.”

  • “Reminiscent of du Maurier’s Rebecca, Clark’s latest intrigues with engrossing suspense when a new bride suddenly finds herself defending her husband, who is accused of murdering a woman 22 years ago. Clark is at the top of her game. Her mystery novels just get better and better.”

    " The first few chapters were a little slow, but then I could not put it down! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Rebecca | 2/14/2014

    " Not bad at all. Not the best book I've read by far, in fact it was quite a slow plod of a story until the last couple of chapters, but the twists and turns in the plot, the character depth, short snappy chapters and multiple view points did make it a good read overall. "

    " I love all for Mary Higgins Clarks books-even if the plots seem to always seem the same. Easy and fun read. "
