THE QUEEN OF SUSPENSE IS BACK! Mary Higgins Clark’s new
novel—the thirtieth and most spine-chilling of her long
career as America’s most beloved author of suspense fiction—
is about the newest and most up-to-date of crimes: identity
Who has not read about—or experienced—with a sinking feeling
the fear that someone else out there may be using your
credit cards, accessing your bank account, even stealing
In I ll Walk Alone, Alexandra “Zan” Moreland, a gifted,
beautiful interior designer on the threshold of a successful
Manhattan career, is terrified to discover that somebody is
not only using her credit cards and manipulating her
financial accounts to bankrupt her and destroy her
reputation, but may also be impersonating her in a scheme
that may involve the much more brutal crimes of kidnapping
and murder. Zan is already haunted by the disappearance of
her own son, Matthew, kidnapped in broad daylight two years
ago in Central Park—a tragedy that has left her torn between
hope and despair.
Now, on what would be Matthew’s fifth birthday, photos
surface that seem to show Zan kidnapping her own child,
followed by a chain of events that suggests somebody—but
who? Zan asks herself desperately, and why?—has stolen her
Hounded by the press, under investigation by the police,
attacked by both her angry ex-husband and a vindictive
business rival, Zan, wracked by fear and pain and sustained
only by her belief, which nobody else shares, that Matthew
is still alive, sets out to discover who is behind this
What she does not realize is that with every step she takes
toward the truth, she is putting herself— and those she
loves most—in mortal danger from the person who has
ingeniously plotted out her destruction.
Even Zan’s supporters, who include Alvirah Meehan, the
lottery winner and amateur detective, and Father Aiden
O’Brien, who thinks that Zan may have confessed to him a
secret he cannot reveal, believe she may have kidnapped
little Matthew. Zan herself begins to doubt her own sanity,
until, in the kind of fast-paced explosive ending that is
Mary Higgins Clark’s trademark, the pieces of the puzzle
fall into place with an unexpected and shocking revelation.
Deeply satisfying, I’ll Walk Alone is Mary Higgins Clark at
the top of her form.
