THE "QUEEN OF SUSPENSE" MARY HIGGINS CLARK'S FINAL NOVEL WRITTEN WITH ALAFAIR BURKE, IS A GRIPPING STORY FEATURING A TERRIFYING CHILD ABDUCTION ONLY DAYS BEFORE TELEVISION PRODUCER LAURIE MORAN'S WEDDING
Laurie Moran and her fiancée, Alex Buckley, the former host of her investigative television show Under Suspicion, are just days away from their midsummer wedding when Alex’s seven-year-old nephew, Johnny, vanishes from the beach. Witnesses recall Johnny playing in the water and collecting shells near an ice cream shack, but when his new sitter turned her head, he had vanished. As the sun sets, Johnny’s skim board washes up to shore, and everyone realizes that he could be anywhere, even in the ocean.
Could the abduction be related to the wedding? Was Laurie's ten-year-old son, Timmy, the intended target? Or was Johnny abducted by a stranger? Laurie and Alex, along with Johnny's parents and Leo Farley, Laurie's father and a retired NYPD detective, are determined to track down every lead.
A ticking clock, a sinister stalker, and fresh romance combine in this exhilarating follow-up to the bestselling You Don’t Own Me—a riveting page-turner from Clark and her dazzling partner in crime, Alafair Burke. This is the masterful final novel from the beloved "Queen of Suspense" Mary Higgins Clark, who was literally writing this novel up until the day she passed away.
