Hours after throwing a third birthday party for their twins Kathy and Kelly in their Connecticut home, Margaret and Steve Frawley return home from a dinner in New York to discover the police in the house, their daughters missing, and an eight million dollar ransom note. The Frawleys meet the kidnapper's demands, but the abandoned car they're led to contains only Kelly, the body of the driver, and a suicide note, saying he had inadvertently killed Kathy and dumped her body in the ocean.

At the private memorial Mass for Kathy, Kelly tugs Margaret's arm and says that her sister Kathy "wants to come home right now." More unexplainable occurrences indicate that Kelly is in touch with Kathy, but no one except Margaret believes that Kathy is still alive. As Kelly's warnings become increasingly specific and alarming, however, FBI agents set out on a search for the kidnappers as Kathy's life hangs by a thread.

Delving into the well-documented but still unexplained phenomenon of twin telepathy, worldwide #1 bestseller Mary Higgins Clark takes us deep into the minds of her characters while lifting us to the heights of suspense. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Rivaling Clark’s debut—Where Are the Children?—this suspense thriller is certain to send terror into the heart of any parent.” 

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Will not only keep readers guessing until the very end about the identity of the criminal mastermind but also compel them to check the locks on all the doors and windows before they go to bed. While not graphically violent, this disturbing novel will chill readers to the bone—especially parents of young children.” 

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “The suspense surrounding the kidnapping is completely captivating, especially since the criminal masterminds identity remains a secret till the end. The twin telepathy between Kathy and Kelly is believable and adds an unusual twist to the story. Red herrings are never in short supply in what is one of Clark’s best novels.”

    " This wasnt my favorite novel by Mary Higgins Clark but I will advise you to read it as an audio book. If you listen the one read by Jan Maxwell--you'll enjoy it. She has good modulation, sense stress and excellent reader. It is a good book but if you dont read it, you're not missing anything. Susan "
