Billed as the “Queen of Suspense” on the book cover, Mary Higgins-Clark does keep one turning the pages to find out what is going to happen next. I read another of her books recently “Where are the Children?”, and observed some similarities in style as well as sharing the same first two words in the title. In both books it looks like someone is being framed for a murder or an abduction and in both books the current events of the book relate to an incident many years earlier. In this book the protagonist’s brother, Mack disappeared ten years ago, but seemingly rings home once a year on Mother’s Day. His sister is desperate to find out what happened to her brother, why he disappeared and why he calls his mother once a year on Mother’s Day. The book builds to a nail biting climax.
My rating 4 out of 5
