Publisher's Summary

A tragic kidnapping... the mystery of twin telepathy... a mother's search for a child, presumed dead.

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.

A good story--will hold your interest throughout

This is a good mystery, written by Mary Higgins Clark, who is certainly one of the greats in this genre. This story is about a set of twins who are kidnapped, but only one gets rescued, leading to interesting plot developments that arise partly out of the mother's trust that the safe twin can feel what the other is going through and keep hope alive for finding her. Mostly it is unremarkable in other ways, a bit predictable on most levels.

However, what made it greatly interesting to me is that it was sort of a story about how often people see things or have encounters that leave them briefly wondering, then quickly dismiss them as unimportant. This entire book seemed to be circling around the numerous ways alert people misread signals and situations, passed off important clues as trivial events. It is a reminder, especially in these times, that we all probably should be more aware of what seems odd or suspicious, and not ignore unusual things we observe. That appeared to be a central part of this story--things happening that people chose to interpret as innocent events, thus prolonging the crisis.

MHC is an excellent mystery writer. I thought the narrator got off to a bad start, but quickly improved, making the book an overall good listening experience.

A Good Plot

Would you listen to Two Little Girls in Blue again? Why?

Any parent's dread is to have their child kidnapped, but to have two missing is a horror. The kidnappers are callous and have no scruples. They even turn on each other. Just read or hear it to find out just how.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the unusual twists in the story.

Which character – as performed by Jan Maxwell – was your favorite?

Angie Aims (Mona) was the most pitiful character.
Margaret was the wise mother who really knew her children.

Kidnapping gone amok.

great book

I always love M.H.C. every book is so suspenseful, even the second time around. The narrator had a pleasant voice, no smacking or long pauses and did different voices for each character. I very much recommend this book.

I was hoping the book was longer.

loved it but it was too short. I drive over 2 hours a day and look forward to a long book while I'm driving.

Twice read!

This is the second time I read this book in 10 years and I still thought it was spectacular! I love the twist and turns. I could not guess who it was that was the pipe piper and I'm usually good in guessing who the guilty party is. This is a full book and I know I'll read it again.

Great book.

Loved this book. They either had illustrated the 'twin connrction' very subtly. And th frustration felt by those who can see that connection while others can not. for a 3 year old something that appears normal to them is not understood by the adults.
Add to all this the mystery and intrigue in the novel.
