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.

A typical MHClark book. A fast read and keeps you interested. PG for adult situations

Always enjoy a MHC book. Good read. Guess if its what you expected and you are sarcastic, don't read any more of her books

This blurb doesn't match the book I just finished! Sounds more interesting, however.

I have been an avid fan of Mary Higgins Clark and have read almost every book that she has written. Again, she did not disappoint with this book. It kept my interest and kept me wondering how it would end. Loved it!!!!!

Exactly as expected. In case you missed the sarcasm, this is not a compliment.

One of my favorite authors but this was not quite up to her normal suspense. I would recommend to her fans but she has written better books!

It was a very good read. Mary Higgins Clark books usually grab me in chapter 1. If you like her books, you will enjoy this one.
