Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Mary Higgins Clark, America's Queen of Suspense, launched her career with the publication of Where Are the Children?, her debut suspense thriller about a woman whose past holds a terrible secret.

Nancy Harmon had been found guilty in a California court of murdering her two young children, but she was released from prison on a legal technicality. Deciding to make a fresh start, to change her identity, she left San Francisco and sought tranquillity on Cape Cod.

Seven years later, Nancy is remarried and has two small children: five-year-old Michael and three-year-old Missy. Finally she feels that she has been able to reclaim all that she had lost. Then the nightmare begins again.

One day a local Cape Cod paper runs an article about a famous California murder trial involving a mother accused of killing her two children. Along with the article is a photo of Nancy. On that same morning, Michael and Missy disappear. They had been playing in the yard, but when she looked for them, they were gone...all that remained was Missy's red mitten.

While Nancy becomes the prime suspect in the disappearance of her children, no one in the small Cape Cod town is aware of a stranger in their midst - someone whose plans for revenge have been festering for seven long years.

QUEEN OF ROMANTIC SUSPENSE

It’s easy to see why Mary Higgins Clark is considered to be the Queen of Romantic Suspense. On her first swing, she hits it out of the park. Perfectly written and brilliantly narrated, this book is a gem.

Classic MHC

The authors intro of this novel as her first accepted by her publisher, and now released as an Anniversary edition of its first publication is for authors loyal fans. All the positive reviews on this story can attest to the authors fanship.
I purchased this novel on members only sale due to my new fave narrator January LaVoy, who performed authors I’ve Got My Eyes On You so well that I went looking for more of her reads by this author. I do use the 1.25x speed to match the adventure.
This is my third story by this author in which Ms LaVoy narrates and she does a fabulous job of bring this story to life.
However, if you have trouble with characters who are in a shell shocked state of mind, as I do, you may want to pass on this novel if it is your first exposure to this author or Ms LaVoy as I truly feel you must be a devoted fan of author.
The publishers summery is spot on so no need to add to it. This story seems to stand the test of time for the authors fans.
The subject matter is pretty hard to take and like another reviewer states this novel is not for me either.
This story is certainly not like a Karin Slaughter novel, so no gore, happy to say.
Author is re publishing her earlier novels so I will seek those stories that have a strong heroine that are narrated by Ms LaVoy
