Mary Higgins Clark, bestselling author of suspense, always excels in exploring the quirks and twists of the human psyche, and in this new thriller she takes a journey into the uncharted territory of the criminal mind. A popular guest at many of the town's finest homes, he particularly enjoyed participating in the somber discussions about Martha's disappearance that still came up from time to time over the dinner table. 'I could tell you about it, every little detail,' he said to himself with a self-satisfied smile as he strolled the boardwalk, exchanging pleasantries with good friends he met along the way. 'But of course I won't. That's our secret: mine and Martha's.' In the gripping new novel from America's Queen of Suspense, a young woman is haunted by two murders that are closely linked - despite the one hundred and ten years that separate them. Following the acrimonious breakup of her marriage and the searing experience of being pursued by an obsessed stalker, criminal defense attorney Emily Graham accepts an offer to leave Albany and work in a major law firm in Manhattan. Feeling a need for roots, she buys her ancestral home, a restored Victorian house in the historic New Jersey seaside resort town of Spring Lake. Her family had sold the house in 1892, after one of Emily's forebears, Madeline Shapley, then still a young girl, disappeared. Now, more than a century later, as the house is being renovated and the backyard excavated for a pool, the skeleton of a young woman is found. She is identified as Martha Lawrence, who had disappeared from Spring Lake over four years ago. Within her skeletal hand is the finger bone of another woman with a ring still on it - a Shapley family heirloom. In seeking to find the link between her family's past and the recent murder, Emily becomes a threat to a devious and seductive killer, who has chosen her as his next victim.

Get ready to be scared with this great thriller from best-selling author, Mary Higgins Clark. Defence lawyer Emily Graham, recovering from a horrific stalking experience, buys back her ancestral home in the beautiful Victorian resort of Spring Lake, a prestigious enclave with a disturbing past - one that is about to be linked to the present in terrifying circumstances. Within a day of moving into her new home, police discover two bodies in Emily's backyard - their deaths separated by exactly a century. It soon appears that the old death is more than casually connected to the more recent one and further enquiries reveal that another two murders committed at the end of the 19th century are also tied to the disappearances of two young girls in the same area within the last few years. Similarities abound and the question is soon raised as to whether the late 19th century killer has been reincarnated... Fast-moving, page-turning action is accompanied by several sub-plots designed to keep the reader on tenter hooks till the final climactic finish. Not to be missed by any crime afficionados who like a touch of the supernatural. - Lucy Watson
