I’LL WALK ALONE

Author: Mary Higgins Clark

Publisher: Simon & Schuster Aust

RRP: $32.99

THE Queen of crime fiction Mary Higgins Clark, has delivered just what we’ve come to expect from her – a fast-paced story with shocking twists and lots of suspense.

Higgins Clark’s 30th novel features the disturbing issue of identity theft. Meet Alexandra Moreland, a gifted designer who’s living with the recurring nightmare of the day her son Matthew was kidnapped. She has never come to terms with what happened, nor has she lost hope that one day he will come home.

No demands or ransoms were ever made and everyone assumes her son is dead. But Alexandra refuses to accept that.

Then she discovers that someone has gained access to her bank accounts and is stealing her identity. And on Matthew’s 5th birthday photos arrive that point to the kidnapper. But Alexandra can’t show the police the pictures - because the face in the photos is her face!

Under investigation by the police, hounded by the media, she sets out to discover who’s plotting to destroy her.

I’ll Walk Alone twists and turns and just when you think you know what is going on the game changes.
