Mary Higgins Clark displays her unmatched storytelling in this mystery about 7-year-old Ellie and her murdered 15-year old sister, Andrea. When Andrea disappears, Ellie suspects she's at the "hideout," but she doesn't tell. She waits until morning, only to find Andrea dead. Her guilt is compounded by her mother's spiral into alcoholism. Twenty-three years later, Ellie, now an investigative reporter, learns Andrea's killer is scheduled for parole. Jan Maxwell switches characters and gender roles with such ease it sometimes sounds as if there's more than one narrator. Her performance gives added tension to this suspenseful story. G.D.W.
