Summary

Mary Higgins Clark takes you deep into the mysteries of the human mind where memories may be the most dangerous things of all.

Kay Lansing grew up in Englewood, New Jersey, daughter of the landscaper to the wealthy and powerful Carrington family. One day, accompanying her father to work, six-year-old Kay overhears a quarrel between a man and a woman that ends with the man's caustic response: "I heard that song before." That same evening, young Peter Carrington drives the 19-year-old daughter of neighbors home from a formal dinner dance at the Carrington estate, but she is not in her room the next morning and is never seen or heard from again.

Decades later, a cloud of suspicion hangs over Peter, not only for his neighbor's disappearance but also for the subsequent drowning death of his own pregnant wife in their swimming pool. But when Kay Lansing, now a librarian in Englewood, asks Peter's permission to hold a literary benefit cocktail party on his estate, she comes to see Peter as misunderstoodÅ and when he begins to court her, she falls in love -- and marries him. However, she soon makes a discovery that leads her to question her husband's innocence. She believes that the key to the truth lies in the identities of the man and woman whose quarrel she witnessed as a child. What she does not realize is that uncovering what lies behind these memories may cost Kay her life.

Great book!

Have been a fan of Mary Higgins Clark for years. I generally like her older
books better, in some cases much better, but this is vintage Clark. Does not disappoint. Edge of your seat suspense and keeps you guessing pretty much all the way through.

Great listen...

The beginning was a bit confusing as it seemed to have started at the middle of the book but once it got going, it was easy to follow. Lots of twists and turns to keep your attention. Outcome was a surprise for me.

Didn't love the reader.

Like someone reading the news. No acting or emotion. Staccato delivery. Story was okay. Better just to read than listen.

MHC can do better...actually has done better!

the performance was good, the writing....not so much. the story was boring and repetitive to me. I am a fan of MHC not this one.

Great story!

I really enjoyed this book! Some of the reviewers felt it was predictable, but I honestly didn’t have any idea who had done it until the very end, and there have been a few other times when I’ve figured out the ending to one of MHC’s books (although I still always enjoy them!). A very sweet story with a good ending.

decent but predictable

narrator was a good reader and did a good job at distinguishing characters. the plot itself was somewhat predictable and I guessed the ending early on, but still was drawn to hear the why.
