I’ll Walk Alone by Mary Higgins Clark

i'll walk aloneAlthough this is Clark’s 30th book, it’s the first one I’ve read.  If you, like me, have somehow missed reading her books, I recommend that you give them a try.  This fast-paced suspense novel is a page-turner from beginning to end!

As the novel begins, Father Aiden is hearing confessions in a church in Manhattan.  A young woman confesses, “I am an accessory to a crime that is ongoing and to a murder that is going to happen very soon.  You’ll probably read about it in the headlines.  I don’t want to be part of it, but it’s too late to stop.”  Then she leaves without giving further details.  Priests cannot reveal what people tell them during confession, but even if he were free to tell the police, Aiden has no idea who the woman is.

Interior designer Zan Moreland, on the fifth birthday of her son Matthew, does not know if he is still alive.  Almost two years have passed since his babysitter took him in his stroller to Central Park, fell asleep, and woke up to discover that Matthew had disappeared.  Zan’s life takes an even more devastating turn when she learns that she is a victim of identity theft.

You may think that you have the plot all figured out – but the surprising ending will prove you wrong!
