A headline-making finance scandal and a breathtaking tale of deception collide in #1 New York Times bestselling author Mary Higgins Clark’s finest thriller yet.

As the sole assistant to a famous upscale interior designer, Lane Harmon is accustomed to visiting opulent homes. So her latest job at a modest New Jersey townhouse is unusual. Then she learns the home belongs to the wife of disgraced finance magnate Parker Bennett, who vanished two years earlier, along with the five billion dollar hedge fund he managed.

The debate over whether Bennett was suicidal or staged his disappearance still continues. Both his clients and the federal government want to trace the money and find him. But Lane is surprisingly moved by Mrs. Bennett’s steadfast faith in her husband’s innocence. Gradually, Lane is also drawn to the Bennetts’ son, Mark, who is equally determined to prove his father is not guilty. What she doesn’t realize is the closer she gets to the notorious family, the more her life—and that of her five-year-old daughter—is in jeopardy.

    Loved this book. Made me remember how much I love to read Mark Higgins Clark. She really flows through the book and tells the story beautifully. No need to go back and re-read older chapters. Enjoyed this story line too!!
  • Another spellbinding book to add to your collection

    I usually love reading her books. The story telling was very sophomoric. Not a book I would recommend.

    Obviously, "ripped from the headlines", it was nonetheless a very engaging book that held my attention the whole time. It helped that one minor theme was about interior design, which is my education and passion. This is more like her previous books, just her writing.
