As the sole assistant to a famous upscale interior designer, Lane Harmon, mother to five-year-old Katie, is accustomed to visiting opulent homes around the tri-state area. A born optimist, Lane finds the glimpse into these gilded worlds fascinating, and loves the reward of exceeding the expectations of their often-demanding owners. When she is called to assist in redecorating a modest townhouse in Bergen County, she knows the job is unusual. Then she learns the home belongs to the wife of a notorious and disgraced financier named Parker Bennett. Parker Bennett has been missing for two years. He dropped out of sight just before it was discovered that the $5 billion dollars in the fund he had been managing had vanished. Bennett had gone out on his sailboat in the Caribbean. Was it suicide or had he staged his disappearance? The scandal around his name has not died down. His clients and the federal government all want to trace the money and find Bennett if he is still alive. Lane is surprised to find herself moved by Mrs. Bennett’s calm dignity and apparently sincere belief in her husband’s innocence. Gradually, Lane finds herself drawn to Eric, the Bennetts’ son, who is similarly determined to prove that his father is not guilty. Lane doesn’t know that the closer she gets to the Bennetts, the more she puts her life―and her daughter’s life―in jeopardy.

A typical MHClark book. A fast read and keeps you interested. PG for adult situations

Always enjoy a MHC book. Good read. Guess if its what you expected and you are sarcastic, don't read any more of her books

This blurb doesn't match the book I just finished! Sounds more interesting, however.

I have been an avid fan of Mary Higgins Clark and have read almost every book that she has written. Again, she did not disappoint with this book. It kept my interest and kept me wondering how it would end. Loved it!!!!!

Exactly as expected. In case you missed the sarcasm, this is not a compliment.

One of my favorite authors but this was not quite up to her normal suspense. I would recommend to her fans but she has written better books!

It was a very good read. Mary Higgins Clark books usually grab me in chapter 1. If you like her books, you will enjoy this one.
