Publisher's Summary

Mary Higgins Clark takes you deep into the mysteries of the human mind where memories may be the most dangerous things of all.

Kay Lansing grew up in Englewood, New Jersey, daughter of the landscaper to the wealthy and powerful Carrington family. One day, accompanying her father to work, six-year-old Kay overhears a quarrel between a man and a woman that ends with the man's caustic response: "I heard that song before." That same evening, young Peter Carrington drives the 19-year-old daughter of neighbors home from a formal dinner dance at the Carrington estate, but she is not in her room the next morning and is never seen or heard from again.

Decades later, a cloud of suspicion hangs over Peter, not only for his neighbor's disappearance but also for the subsequent drowning death of his own pregnant wife in their swimming pool. But when Kay Lansing, now a librarian in Englewood, asks Peter's permission to hold a literary benefit cocktail party on his estate, she comes to see Peter as misunderstoodÅ and when he begins to court her, she falls in love -- and marries him. However, she soon makes a discovery that leads her to question her husband's innocence. She believes that the key to the truth lies in the identities of the man and woman whose quarrel she witnessed as a child. What she does not realize is that uncovering what lies behind these memories may cost Kay her life.

Great book!

Have been a fan of Mary Higgins Clark for years. I generally like her older
books better, in some cases much better, but this is vintage Clark. Does not disappoint. Edge of your seat suspense and keeps you guessing pretty much all the way through.

Great listen...

The beginning was a bit confusing as it seemed to have started at the middle of the book but once it got going, it was easy to follow. Lots of twists and turns to keep your attention. Outcome was a surprise for me.

Didn't love the reader.

Like someone reading the news. No acting or emotion. Staccato delivery. Story was okay. Better just to read than listen.

Loved from the 1st chapter to the last

The story didn’t take long to get going. It captured your attention and curiosity from the beginning and didn’t stop until the last page. I would’ve never guessed it turning out the way it did. Another amazing story by Mary Higgins Clark!!

Shmeh...

The story was just ok. And although I am a big Mary Higgins Clark fan, I didn't buy her use of language. The narrator was stiff and formal largely because the writing was stiff and formal. There was no use of vernacular speak at all and I just don't find it believable that talk between friends or family or husband and wife will be prim and proper. This just grated on me throughout my whole listening experience.
This story definitely doesn't rank among her best work.
