Hours after throwing a third birthday party for their twins Kathy and Kelly in their Connecticut home, Margaret and Steve Frawley return home from a dinner in New York to discover the police in the house, their daughters missing, and an eight million dollar ransom note. The Frawleys meet the kidnapper's demands, but the abandoned car they're led to contains only Kelly, the body of the driver, and a suicide note, saying he had inadvertently killed Kathy and dumped her body in the ocean.
At the private memorial Mass for Kathy, Kelly tugs Margaret's arm and says that her sister Kathy "wants to come home right now." More unexplainable occurrences indicate that Kelly is in touch with Kathy, but no one except Margaret believes that Kathy is still alive. As Kelly's warnings become increasingly specific and alarming, however, FBI agents set out on a search for the kidnappers as Kathy's life hangs by a thread.
Delving into the well-documented but still unexplained phenomenon of twin telepathy, worldwide #1 best seller Mary Higgins Clark takes us deep into the minds of her characters while lifting us to the heights of suspense.

Married "mom" of 3 crazy dogs and 1 cat! I developed a love for reading just after college & only recently for audio. Loving it so far!
I cut my "mystery/thriller" teeth on Mary Higgins Clark's books. When I first started reading, she was certainly my "go-to". I have evolved, I suppose, and I am not sure if I have changed that much or if the book was that bad - but I did not like this book! The idea was ok... the twin telepathy thing, etc., but the story falls flat. Not to mention, for a while I wondered if this was the work of a well loved author - or a missing excerpt from "World's Dumbest Criminals"!! It may have been the narration, it made the entire thing just pretentious!! The performance of the mom was laughable!! If you just have to add this to your library... I recommend the text version, not the audio!
All of Mary Higgins Clark's books rank top rate. This book was truly exciting! I would rate it high on my list.
The twins communication skills was were very memorable. It is very true to life as there is something intriguing how close twins are.
Jan Maxwell is an excellent storyteller. She keeps you sitting on the edge throughout the book. The suspense is riveting.
The whole story moved me. It was the uniqueness of how the story evolved.
If you want a thriller with unique twists get this story.
Yes. Everything she write has no limits to age or gender!
She is the perfect match to the stories of MHC!
All of it!
My husband and I are never disappointed when we take long road trips and listen to Mary Higgins Clark!
