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.

I have read many books and mysteries, but this one is outstanding! The audiobook and reader had me so mesmerized that I carried my laptop everywhere I went and for the length of the audiobook I never put it down and even took it to bed with me until the story was over. Mary Higgins Clark is an outstanding writer and I now plan on ordering more audiobooks written by her.
