Charles MacKenzie Jr. ("Mack") went missing ten years ago. A Columbia University senior, about to graduate and already accepeted at Duke University Law School, he walked out of his apartment on Manhattan's Upper West Side without a word to his college roommates and has never been seen again. However, he does make a ritual phone call to his mother every year on Mother's Day. Each time, he assures her he is fine, refuses to answer her frantic questions, then hangs up. Even the death of his father, a corporate lawyer, in the tragedy of 9/11 does not bring him home or break the pattern of his calls.
Mack's sister Carolyn 26, realizes that she will never have closure and be able to go further with her life until she finds her brother, and sets out with her own personal investigation.
And so starts this amazing story, packed with questions, theories, suspects and dangers. The end is a BIG - and horrible - surprise. One does, during the approximate last quarter of the book, start to get an uneasy feeling about one of the key persons in particular, but all in all the plot is so extremely clever that it is impossible to make all the pieces of the puzzle fit, in spite of wage suspicions.
If you look for a book to last you a bit longer than a night or two, this is not it. Once you start, it's impossible to put down.
Yet another superb work from the master of suspense. Highly recommended!
Then there are the men: one's a murderous psychopath; one the man of her dreams; one a red herring.
This novel was well up to her usual standard, keeping me feverishly turning the pages. I had a good idea who the killer was from about chapter 3 but I wanted to be sure I was right (I was!).
I've had problems with the endings of her most recent novels, which are far too rushed. After a long, slow set-up, everything comes tumbling towards the denouement like an out-of-control train. There's a sense of 'with one bound, Jack was free' about them, with leaves me unsatisfied.
And now young women are going missing and the police think that Mack has something to do with it. Carolyn goes back to the investigator that her parents had hired and asks him what he remembers. He does not believe Mack has a part in the disappearance of the missing women and looks into the case again.
Carolyn doesn't stop there. She talks with the managers of the apartment that Mack and two friends shared just before he disappeared. They are very nervous and don't want her ask them any more questions. Nick and Bruce were the roommates. Carolyn had a crush on Nick but Mack didn't want him to be around his sister. Bruce is hostile to Carolyn. Maybe because his wife, Barbara, was in love with Mack before he disappeared. With all these possibilities, you won't believe the twist the ending has. All in all, this is a great book.
Jan Maxwell is easy to listen to and does do a good English accent. Most of the other characters sound about the same. She speaks clearly so you don't misunderstand any of the words and you don't lose track of the story line.
Very fast paced and easy to read. Would certainly recommend.
Mary Higgins Clark fans will be delighted with this nicely told mystery, one of her very best. Families provide lots of drama for most people, and Ms. Clark wisely chooses to add family complications to increase the flavor of this excellent story.
What would you think of your only brother disappeared just before finishing college . . . except to make a brief phone call for Mom on Mother's Day? It's pretty frustrating, suggesting that he doesn't care about you at all. Sis is Carolyn MacKenzie, a bright lawyer whose clerkship has just ended sooner than she expected.
Carolyn decides to push brother Mack to permanently surface. He quickly sends a message to back off . . . but Carolyn is not going to do that. Badly dislocated lives are soon fractured in painful ways.
Other currents are moving swiftly in dark places, and soon there are other mysteries to solve. In the process, you'll meet a lot of vulnerable people with secrets to keep. You'll also meet some pretty questionable types. But who did what?
It's a great mystery premise to think about someone who is missing but stays in touch on Mother's Day. I had a hard time imagining what was behind such behavior.
I also liked the way Ms. Clark developed her characters. Lots of them are interesting, and you'll care about what happens to them.
But I must save my special praise for the mystery: It's hard to solve due to excellent misdirection and lots of subtle clues with multiple potential meanings.
Brava, Ms. Clark!
