Now Clare once again plunges back into this sensational story. With new evidence, new victims, and new suspects—too many suspects. Everyone from members of a motorcycle gang to a prominent politician running for a US Senate seat seem to have secrets they're hiding about what really might have happened to Lucy Devlin.
But Clare has her own secrets. And in order to untangle the truth about Lucy Devlin, she must finally confront her own torturous past.

It's News to Me (coming in 2022)
New York City TV news executive Clare Carlson, the narrator of this engrossing mystery from Belsky (Blonde Ice), won a Pulitzer Prize for her coverage of the story of 11-year-old Lucy Devlin, who boarded a school bus one morning never to return. Fifteen years later, Anne Devlin, Lucy's mother, asks Clare to interview her on the air to discuss new developments in the cold case. Clare, whose devotion to her job has already cost her three marriages, reluctantly agrees, and soon starts investigating an alleged sighting of Lucy with a biker at a motorcycle convention in Mountainboro, N.H., shortly after the girl's disappearance. In her obsessive search for the truth, Clare uncovers an expanding list of suspects, including Lucy's father, Patrick, a member of a New York motorcycle gang, and Manhattan federal attorney Elliott Grayson, who's a candidate for the U.S. Senate. Clare must also face her own painful past. Belsky puts Clare's journalistic integrity to a dramatic test in this gut-wrenching tale.
