It has been ten years since twenty-one-year-old Charles MacKenzie Jr. (“Mack”) went missing. A Columbia University senior, about to graduate and already accepted at Duke University Law School, he walked out of his apartment on Manhattan’s Upper West Side without a word to his college roommates and had never been seen again. However, he does make one ritual phone call to his mother every year: on Mother’s Day. Each time, he assures her he is fine, refuses to answer her frantic questions, then hangs up. Even the death of his father, a corporate lawyer, in the tragedy of 9/11 does not bring him home or break the pattern of his calls.

 

Mack’s sister, Carolyn, is now twenty-six, a law school graduate, and has just finished her clerkship for a civil court judge in Manhattan. She has endured two family tragedies, yet she realizes that she will never be able to have closure and get on with her life until she finds her brother. Carolyn’s pursuit of the truth about Mack’s disappearance swiftly plunges her into a world of unexpected danger and unanswered questions—and leads her into a deadly confrontation with someone close to her whose secret he cannot allow her to reveal.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Debbie Maskus | 2/20/2014

    " I enjoy taking a break from fabulous writing and reading a Mary Higgins Clark. Her books contain many characters, like Mauve Binchy, that are never fully developed. The story line, like a James Patterson novel, moves quickly. A race to the finish line, or to discover the killer. Clark does not utilize graphic murder scenes, which makes an easy read. Her stories are like settling down with an old storyteller. In this story, Carolyn, decides to find her brother, Mack, who has been missing for 10 years. The tale undercovers a serial killer, who knows that he will never stop killing. Clark presents a brief look at the thought process of a serial killer. "

    " A very interesting story. The twists and turns kept me guessing. Was it this person? Wait, it has to be this, right? I am very glad Mary Higgins Clark wraps everything us and doesn't leave you wanting to know what became of so and so. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cassandra Roach | 2/5/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Clarice Zhang | 1/23/2014

    " This book is all that i have expected from mary higgins clark. Straight to the point from the start , no draggy beginnings and not too many characters to confuse yourself with. Definitely has the suspense factor. The endings are always with an unexpected twist and the criminals are always someone you would never have suspected. I have always tried guessing who the criminals are in all of her books but have never succeeded. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beth | 12/17/2013

    " I have been a fan of MHC since high school. I know what I'm going to get. It might not knock my socks off, but she entertains me everytime. And quick reads are appealing to me. $5.99 at Borders. .... I couldn't resist. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 12/13/2013

    " Good mystery! Kept me guessing until the last 1/4th or so of the book. However, once you get to that point, it feels like the author was tired of writing and wrapped up everything SO quickly. There is SO much action and so many answers to questions in the last few chapters of the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendi | 12/2/2013

    " Mary Higgins Clark was, as always, very predictable in her attempt to be unpredictable. But I was still entertained. "

    " Every few years I forget and read a Mary Higgins Clark book - and then I remember why I don't read them - I'm sorry to be offensive, but they are really boring - she sometimes seems like she's going somewhere interesting, but she isn't "

    " It's hard to put down...I have to tear myself away to go to bed at night. All of her stories are well written with twists and turns. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melody | 8/12/2013

    " Pretty good, but the ending is kind of vague. I like when stories have an ending, or at least a clear "to be continued" at the end. "
