Mary Higgins Clark Reader Reviews:
Submitted by Anne M.
Where Are The Children – This is the story of Nancy, a woman whose two children mysteriously disappeared many years ago. Their bodies were later found and she was charged with their murders. She insisted that she had nothing to with their disappearance and deaths, but the District Attorney’s office wasn’t buying it. She was found guilty but the charges were later overturned.
Nancy is abandoned by her husband and moves and changes her identity to start her new life. She later remarries and has two more children and the nightmare begins again. Her two children disappear and all the old suspicious surface again. Did she do this and is she really responsible for her first two children’s deaths?
I loved this book and was equally enthralled with it from start to finish. Would definitely recommend this book as a “must read”!
