“It began three months ago when the world as I knew it shattered. My name is Emily O’Connor, Ph.D., age thirty-four, and I teach criminology at Boston Layman College. Three months ago, on September 5th, the first day of the new term, I remember coming into my office feeling pretty good about life…”
So begins the latest thriller from bestselling author and international sensation Mary Higgins Clark – America’s undisputed queen of suspense who “posesses an awesome gift for storytelling” (New York Times).
Clark‘s stunning new novel takes her into uncharted new territory, as Emily, one of three inseparable friends since childhood, learns that Natalie is on life support after a terrible accident. She begs the doctors to allow the third friend, Alice – near death herself – to be the recipient of her heart. But what Emily does not realize is that Natalie’s death was no accident, and that she has unknowingly set in motion a series of shocking and dangerous revelations that will put her own life at risk. Probing as deeply into the human mind as she does into the human heart, Mary Higgins Clark has written a novel of rare suspense and deep emotional terror.
