Ronald Thompson knows he never killed Nina Peterson... yet in two days the state of Connecticut will take his life, having found him guilty via due process of law. But Thompson's death will not stop the pain and anger of Nina's husband, Steve. Thompson's death will not still the fears of Nna's six-year-old son, Neil, witness to his mother's brutal slaying. Not even the love and friendship of Sharon Martin, a journalist who is slowly becoming a part of their world, will ever erase their bitter memories. Only time, perhaps, will heal their wounds. But in the shadows a stranger waits, a cunning psychopath who has killed before, who has unfinished business at the Peterson home...

Clark’s best book!
This is only the second book I read by Mary Higgins Clark and, believe me when I tell you that it’s a great book! This chilling mystery keeps you glued to the edge of your seat from the earliest chapters! After that, it keeps you invested in the story all the way to the end! I’ve read thirteen books by the “Queen of Suspense”,but they don’t get any better than this one!👍🏻
Edge of your seat
The book is wonderfully written and has you sitting on the edge of your seat! The very first few couple of pages started off slower as it set some background but read through them because once it sets off, it just doesn't stop. Definitely worth a read, I wasnt able to put it down until I got to the end of the story - fantastic!
