If you're looking for a book that will keep you on edge, than this is the book for you. This is the first book I've read by Clark and I must say, she doesn't fail to disappoint her readers. So full of mystery and suspense, it'll have you biting your nails and not sleeping until you finish reading this book! ( )

This is the story of twin three year old girls who are kidnapped while their parents are at a party. A formulaic crime thriller, well written and very typical of the genre. I enjoyed it. ( )

A very good book. ( )

Two twins are kidnapped for ransom, one is returned and the other is in peril. Everyone scrambles to find her before it's too late.
I really didn't care for this at all. Wooden characters, too much exposition and a pretty lame premise. I think the narrator had sinus issues, too, which made it unpleasant to listen to at times. ( )

Twins are kidnapped and there are several suspects all with something to hide. Only one twin is returned, what will happen to the other? A quick read, it was a pleasant way to spend an evening instead of watching tv. ( )

Book description
Margaret and Steve Frawley celebrate the third birthday of their twin girls, Kelly and Kathy, with an afternoon party in their new home, a modest fixer-upper in Ridgefield, Connecticut.

The evening of the twins' birthday party, Steve and Margaret attend a black-tie dinner in New York. When they return home, the police are in the house, and they are told that the babysitter had been found unconscious, the children are gone, and a note demanding an eight-million-dollar ransom had been left in their room.

Steve Frawley's firm, a global investment company, agrees to pay the ransom. The kidnapper, who identifies himself as the "Pied Piper," makes his terms known -- on delivery of the ransom, a call will come, revealing the girls' whereabouts. The call comes, but only Kelly is in the car parked behind a deserted restaurant. The driver is dead from a gunshot wound and has left a suicide note, saying he had inadvertently killed Kathy and had dumped her body in the ocean.

At the private memorial Mass for Kathy, Kelly tugs Margaret's arm and says: "Mommy, Kathy is very scared of that lady. She wants to come home right now." More unexplainable occurrences follow, indicating that Kelly is in touch with Kathy. At first, no one except the mother believes that the twins are communicating and that Kathy is still alive. As Kelly's warnings become increasingly specific and alarming, however, FBI agents set out on a search for Kathy. The novel reaches a breathtaking climax as they close in on the Pied Piper and his accomplices, while Kathy's life hangs by a thread.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743497295, Mass Market Paperback)

In a riveting thriller, worldwide bestselling suspense writer Mary Higgins Clark brilliantly weaves the mystery of twin telepathy into a mother's search for a kidnapped child, presumed dead.

When Margaret and Steve Frawley come home to Connecticut from a black-tie dinner in New York, their three-year-old twins, Kathy and Kelly, are gone. The police found the babysitter unconscious, and a ransom note from the "Pied Piper" demands eight million dollars. Steve's global investment firm puts up the money, but when they go to retrieve the twins, only Kelly is in the car. The dead driver's suicide note says he inadvertently killed Kathy.

At the memorial, Kelly tugs Margaret's arm and says: "Mommy, Kathy is very scared of that lady. She wants to come home right now." At first, only Margaret believes that the twins are communicating and that Kathy is still alive. But as Kelly's warnings become increasingly specific and alarming, FBI agents set out on a desperate search.
