A young journalist returns to her home town on hearing that the man who murdered her sister is being released from prison after 20 years. She unearths some fresh information on him, proving that he killed others besides her sister. Now he plans to dispose of the journalist as well.
A powerful, haunting story of murder, fame and corruption in which a young woman struggles to convince people - and herself - that a brilliant man about to be released from prison (where he has spent twenty years for her sister's murder) IS, in fact, guilty, and not the victim a media star's campaign makes him out to be. The story is based around a young print journalist who returns to her home town after hearing that the man who murdered her sister is being released from prison after twenty years. The killer is highly intelligent and attractive, which is the main reason a glamorous TV star believes he is innocent and campaigns for his release. During her stay in her New Jersey town, she unearths some information about the killer, proving that not only did he kill her sister, but has killed others, and now that he's been released from prison, he plans to kill her as well. This is Mary Higgins Clark at her suspenseful best.

Andrea, a 15-year-old girl, is bludgeoned to death and her boyfriend Rob is jailed, based on the evidence given by her younger sister Ellie. More than 20 years later he is released and is determined to clear his name, using the evidence of an alleged new witness that frames someone else. Ellie, now an investigative reporter, has always felt partially to blame for Andrea's murder and wants to foil Rob's efforts. She takes leave from work and dedicates her time to creating a website detailing his irascible behaviour in the hope that this will prove his culpability, without a care for the danger she is putting herself in. This is a clever and gripping page-turner from Mary Higgins Clark, the 'Queen of Suspense'.
