Less of a figure out the mystery than other books by the author. In this one we get to follow the bad guys moves with only the mastermind of the kidnapping the unsolved part. Interesting concept of the twins able to feel and communicate with each other even when far apart. As the police said, it was just a matter of time when the bad guys would make a mistake. ( )

The story was good... but some of the characters needed to be a bit more believable...especially the kidnappers. They were a rag-tag group of morons who decide to kidnap twins in an effort to gain ransom and they were bumbling idiots. The "twin talk" the girls shared was fairly interesting. I know there has been some long-term studies done on this and the results are pretty amazing. It was in whole, a good mystery...but not great nor was it the best or the worse that I have read by this author. My suggestion would be that this would more than adequately fill the gap if you just need a slow and easy break from hard core mystery & suspense. ( )

Synopsis: Kathy and Kelly are identical twins who get kidnapped. Only one is returned but the returned twin insists the other is alive and that their parents must find her.

My Rating:

4/5

I am a mother of twins and loved the concept of this book. Kelly and Kathy have an incredible bond which connects them almost supernaturally. I loved the premise of this book as well as the way it was pulled off. The plot was really well done.

I thought the book was well paced. I couldn't put it down and ended up reading the whole thing in a single day. The stakes in this book, the life of one of the children, were high enough that I was desperate to know if she would be found in time.

I enjoyed learning about the person who had the twin and seeing the complexity of their character. In some ways I could relate to this character and her reasons for kidnapping the twin however the kidnapper has a dark side which doesn't allow me to offer her to much sympathy by the end even if I understood her pain and plight.

Despite overall loving this book there were a few things that didn't work for me.

Near the end of the book there were several things that felt like they just happened or that they came out of nowhere. There were times people were in peril and they just happened to be saved by something random.

Another issue I had was with the, for lack of a better word, subplot. The reader knows who kidnapped the children but not who arranged the kidnapping. There are four suspects and each has perspectives written from them. I wasn't thrilled with who the orchestrated ended up being nor the way these vignettes from the potential mastermind were placed into the book. I was fine that these people were being investigated but I didn't need whole scenes showing what was actually happening with them that made them suspicious. At times it distracted from the main story.

Another issue I had, and this was also an issue in Mary Higgins Clark's other book Where Are the Children, is the use of obesity in the portrayal of the "bad guy." In both books the "bad guy" being fat and sweaty is used and I felt the handling of obesity was often insensitive.

Also, in both this book and Where Are the Children, so many clues are withheld by well meaning "townsfolk." I am wondering if this is just a recurrent trope the author uses. I understand that it heightens the suspense but it got annoying that people had information and just didn't think it was relevant enough to bring forward to the police etc.

I think this is a good entry point to Mary Higgins Clark. It is the third I have read and my favorite so far. This one was fairly modern which is a plus for me as I felt some of her older novels did not age well.

I recommend this book if you are looking for a fun high stakes thriller. ( )
