From #1 New York Times bestselling â€śQueen of
Suspenseâ€ť comes a thrilling novel about missing billions, a
disgraced financier, and those determined to learn the truth
at any costâ€¦
As the sole assistant to a famous upscale interior designer,
Lane Harmon, mother to five-year-old Katie, is accustomed to
visiting opulent homes around the tri-state area. A born
optimist, Lane finds the glimpse into these gilded worlds
fascinating, and loves the reward of exceeding the
expectations of their often-demanding owners. When she is
called to assist in redecorating a modest townhouse in
Bergen County, she knows the job is unusual. Then she learns
the home belongs to the wife of a notorious and disgraced
financier named Parker Bennett.
Parker Bennett has been missing for two years. He dropped
out of sight just before it was discovered that the $5
billion dollars in the fund he had been managing had
vanished. Bennett had gone out on his sailboat in the
Caribbean. Was it suicide or had he staged his
disappearance? The scandal around his name has not died
down. His clients and the federal government all want to
trace the money and find Bennett if he is still alive.
Lane is surprised to find herself moved by Mrs. Bennettâ€™s
calm dignity and apparently sincere belief in her husbandâ€™s
innocence. Gradually, Lane finds herself drawn to Eric, the
Bennettsâ€™ son, who is similarly determined to prove that his
father is not guilty. Lane doesnâ€™t know that the closer she
gets to the Bennetts, the more she puts her life?and her
daughterâ€™s life?in jeopardy.
With the hair-raising storytelling skill that has made her
Americaâ€™s â€śQueen of Suspense,â€ť Mary Higgins Clark combines a
headline-making financial scandal and a breathtaking tale of
deception and betrayal into one of her finest novels.
