Summary:

In a riveting and unputdownable thriller from the Queen of Suspense, a young woman is ensnared into returning to a place she had wanted to leave behind forever—her childhood home.

At the age of ten, Liza Barton shot her mother, trying desperately to protect her from her estranged stepfather, Ted Cartwright. Despite his claim that the shooting was a deliberate act, the Juvenile Court ruled the death an accident. Many people, however, agreed with Cartwright, and the tabloids compared the child to the infamous murderess Lizzie Borden, pointing even to the similarity of their names.

To erase her past, her adoptive parents change her name to Celia. At age twenty-eight, a successful interior designer in Manhattan, she marries a childless sixty-year-old widower, Laurence Foster, and they have a son. Before their marriage, she reveals to him her true identity. Two years later, on his deathbed, he makes her swear never to tell anyone so that their son, Jack, will not carry the stigma of her past.

Two years later, Celia is happily remarried. Her peace of mind is shattered when her new husband surprises her with a gift—the house where she killed her mother. And it soon becomes clear that there is someone in the community knows Celia.

More and more, there are signs that someone in the community knows Celia’s true identity. When the real estate agent who sold them the house is brutally murdered and Celia is the first on the crime scene, she becomes a suspect. As she fights to prove her innocence, she has no idea that she and her son, Jack, are now the targets of a killer.

    Excellant book! I always like Clark but this was the best. It kept me on my toes wondering what may happen next.

    Not one of my favorite Mary Higgins Clark books, but still liked it. A lot of characters to keep track of. A bit too predictable at parts. Had my suspicions from the very beginning, which proved to be correct. I like it better when I can't figure it out!

    I thought this was a very nice book. It was suspenseful, just as I was expecting, and I thought it had a great ending. I would definatley suggest it to anyone who wants a good, clean suspence book.

    This was a good Mary Higgins Clark novel. Although, I guessed the ending, it was still entertaining. If you like her other novels, you will like this one.

    Being my 1st Mary Higgins Clark book, I was pleasantly surprised. It wasn't that bad. My wife is a big fan, and we got several books to listen to while on vacation. We had my niece / nephew in the car with us for a time, and they even got engrossed in the story.

    This was one of those books you get so involved in, you are sorry when it is over. Another great story by Mary Higgins Clark

    This was a great book. I often found it difficult to leave the car and would drive around the block a few times to continue listening.
