Summary

It has been ten years since 21-year-old Kevin MacKenzie, Jr. ("Mac"), has been missing. A Columbia University senior, about to graduate and already enrolled in Duke University Law School, he walked out of his room in Manhattan's Upper West Side without a word to his college roommate and has never been seen again. However, he does make three ritual phone calls to his mother every year: on her birthday, on his birthday, and on Mother's Day. Each time, he assures her he is fine, refuses to answer her frantic questions, then hangs up. Even the death of his father, a corporate lawyer, on 9/11 does not bring him home, or break the pattern of his calls.

Mac's sister Carolyn is now 26, a law school graduate, and has just been hired as an assistant district attorney in Manhattan. She has endured two family tragedies -- her brother's inexplicable disappearance, and the loss of her father. Realizing that neither she nor her mother will ever be able to have closure and get on with their lives until they find her brother, she sets out to discover what happened to Mac, and why he has found it necessary to hide from them.

Her journey into the world of people who willingly disappear from their own lives leads her to learn about others who may or may not still be alive, and ultimately to a deadly confrontation with someone close to her who suddenly becomes an enemy -- and cannot allow her to disclose his secret...

Not sure to make of this

The opening started off, but after that I,m not sure what to make of the rest of it. The narrator gave a good performance, but I think that a different narrator might have been better suited to this story.

Waiting for an ending

I was hooked right from the start so felt really let down by the ending! Maybe I slept through the ending. I attempted to read over and over thinking I must have missed something but if I did I'm still at a loss for how the book finished.

Where are you now?

I have read or listened to every book she has ever written, even co-written. This was my all time favorite! Could not stop listening, she is brilliant.

Outstanding suspense mystery!

Where Are You Now? was released in 2008 soon after Mary Higgins Clark's 80th birthday. This wonderful suspense thriller is as good of any of her earlier novels. The publisher's summary gives a good synopsis of the story, so I will nor repeat it here. Narration is excellent.

Not her best

I usually enjoy her books. This is one I had trouble listening to and really getting into. It was very slow moving. Many of my audiobooks I listen to over and over. This will not be one of them. There was not enough action or suspense to keep my attention.

Terrible!

I hated this book!
451 million characters to try to remember and keep up with and then the end came so unexpectedly fast. It was probably one of the worst books I have ever read.
I’m glad I waded thru one of her books so I know not to ever try one again!

I almost gave up on this book

I almost gave up on this book but glad that I continued. The story started off very slow and not engaging. I continued listening as the suspense and story picked up! Good suspense and story.

An overall good mystery

I feel like when you pick up a Mary Higgins Clark novel you know what you are getting. A solid suspense story with some good twists, interesting characters, and a nice story. I won't claim she is for everyone but I do love her works.

Where are You Now? has a great premise and I felt the mystery behind it was delivered well. I do feel MHC laid the clues out well for how everything was happening if not exactly who was doing it. I think she did a great job presenting a wide range of characters with their own motives and setting out who did what while still delivering some surprises. The book has its flaws. The start of it is a little rough on presenting the characters and their motives (telling rather then showing) and the ending felt a little rushed. There are also a lot of characters to keep track of and I won't say that didn't create some difficulties. However, I was entertained for the novel and I enjoyed the narrations of most of the characters.

As usual Jan Maxwell delivered a good audio performance delivering the proper emphasis and voices to the characters. I didnt have trouble telling her voices apart and I think she delivered an entertaining performance. The quality of the recording is excellent.

A great read

Jan Maxwell has never disappointed as a narrator in all the books I have bought, she always does a great job. A true suspense read, I listened to it all night. Mary Higgins Clark hits it out if the ballpark!!!

Nothing Special

This is my first Mary Higgins Clark book. I read the reviews and thought why not? By midway is the book I already knew one of the revelations that would be unfolded at the end. The Who dun it part was a little weak. Great mystery writers give some hint or clue about possible ties or potential suspects. This one kind of drops it at the end with no real build up. You will have to suspend logic at several point sin the story . The main character soon becomes annoying as the story progresses and near the end you’ll roll your eyes. Again not great, but not terrible. I wouldn’t recommend to any serious mystery readers.
