Every parents nightmare! missing children! What happened, where are they, it is starting all over again. This is a gripping tale of the horror of not knowing what happened to your children. You can't put it down.

Suspense and terror as only Higgins Clark can do it! The characters are true to life, they could live next door, and the plot is full of twists that keep you reading all night.

This book is great because while you know what you're reading is fiction, it's one of those books that is entirely plausible so you can get lost in it. An innocent woman has two young children who die, so she changes her name and appearance and moves away. Now, w/ith a new life, she has two more children and suddenly, they are both missing and she's a suspect. This is definitely a suspense story!

Her first and her very best! I have read this book several times. If I am disappointed in one of her new releases, I can go back and reread this one and remember what I love about Higgins Clark's writings.

FROM THE PUBLISHER
Nancy Harmon had fled the heartbreak of her first marriage, the macabre deaths of her two little children, the hostile front-page newspaper stories and the shocking charges against her. She changed her name, dyed her red hair sable brown, and left California for the wind-swept peace of Cape Cod. Now she was married again, had two more beautiful children, and the terrible pain had begun to heal...until the morning when she looked in the back yard for her little boy and girl, found only one red mitten, and knew that the nightmare was beginning again...

This may be the first Mary Higgins Clark novel and I think it's one of her best. The suspense is incredible and you'll turn the pages as fast as you can to follow the story of a mother desperate to find and bring home her two kidnapped children. In my opinion Ms. Clark's more recent books are not as gritty as her first efforts which are rich in atmosphere and edge-of-your-seat terror. If you haven't read Where Are the Children, you're in for a treat. If you read it once, read it again.

A great winner. A great thriller. Will keep you on suspense. And will keep you guessing on who the real bad guy is.

Nancy Harmon had fled the heartbreak of her first marriage, the macabre deaths of her two little children, the hostile front-page newspaper stories and the shocking charges against her. She changed her name, dyed her red hair sable brown, and left California for the wind-swept peace of Cape Cod. Now she was married again, had two more beloved children, and the terrible pain had begun to heal...until the morning when she looked in the backyard for her little boy and girl, found only one red mitten, and knew that the nightmare was beginning again....

Oh my! This book was SO intense! I could not put it down. I stayed up late so I could finish it. I had never read anything from Mary Higgins Clark prior, I had judged her (by her name) to be a happy friendly read. I was really taken off guard and fear reading anything from her again! I was scared to find out what happend to the children but I just HAD to know so I couldn't put it down. If you like roller coaster reads then you will be in for a treat. I was freaked out! :D
