As always, Mary Higgins Clark tells an absorbing tale of mystery, murder and long-lost relatives. Betsy Grant's husband has been murdered. At one time a wealthy, successful orthopedic specialist, Dr. Grant has been suffering from early on-set Alzheimer's disease. His wife has patiently and lovingly cared for him for years, but after a birthday dinner, he is found dead, with his skull fractured. Betsy Grant is now on trial for his murder, and it does not look good for her. Her stepson Alan Grant is desperate for money and cannot wait until Betsy is convicted and his father's estate goes only to him.
At the same time, Delaney Wright, a rising star news reporter for a big television station, and the reporter covering Betsy's trial, is trying to find her birth mother. Friends Alvirah and Willy, amateur investigators, have agreed to help her.
As any Clark reader will tell you, it is impossible to stop reading one of her novels once you start. That goes for this novel too
