Back in another life when I was still reading a lot of books, Mary Higgins Clark was one of my favourite authors. “I’ll be seeing you”, “Where are the children?” and “Remember me” are some of the ones I spend sleepless nights with.
However, once I’ve read a few of her books the concept of her books is so obvious that the story is predictable and plot twists anticipated. Same in this one and I knew after the first 50 pages who the bad guy was and why.
It was also quite silly by introducing twins that could talk to each other over a great distance and relay names and locations. I’m sure that there are studies and that there is probably some kind of proven connection between twins, but it’s just too unrealistic to me.
I won’t be taking much away from this book apart from this quote:
Waiting does not seem long once it has been accomplished.
Overall I couldn’t put the book down though and it is definitely worth reading, even if her first twenty books are miles better.
