About the author :

Mary Higgins Clark likes to delve into different worlds in her crackerjack novels of suspense; but while the milieus change, her stories are always compelling. As she puts it: "I write about people going about their daily lives, not looking for trouble, who are suddenly plunged into menacing situations."


The murdered woman could have been her double. When reporter Meghan Collins sees the sheet-wrapped corpse in a New York City hospital, she feels as if she's staring into her own face. And Meghan has troubles enough already without this bizarre experience. Nine months ago, her much-loved father's car spun off a New York bridge. Now, investigators are saying that there's no trace of his car in the river, and they suspect he faked his own death. With frightening speed, links start to appear between Meghan's father and her dead lookalike. Meghan may be in danger herself, but she's determined to find the truth to the mystery. In a nightmare journey spiraling from New York to Connecticut to Arizona, Meghan finds that the truth can sometimes be deadly.

The author whose phenomenal blockbusters have sold more than 25 million copies in the U.S. writes a relentlessly terrifying novel about a reporter dragged into her family's hidden past--a chilling web of secrets and betrayals where nothing is as it seems, and the truth may be too devastating to pursue.

Chapter One

Meghan Collins stood somewhat aside from the cluster of other journalists in Emergency at Manhattan's Roosevelt Hospital. Minutes before, a retired United States senator had been mugged on Central Park West and rushed here. The media were milling around, awaiting word of his condition.

Meghan lowered her heavy tote bag to the floor. The wireless mike, cellular telephone and notebooks were causing the strap to dig into her shoulder blade. She leaned against the wall and closed her eyes for a moment's rest. All the reporters were tired. They'd been in court since early afternoon, awaiting the verdict in a fraud trial. At nine o'clock, just as they were leaving, the call came to cover the mugging. It was now nearly 11. The crisp October day had turned into an overcast night that was an unwelcome promise of an early winter.

It was a busy night in the hospital. Young parents carrying a bleeding toddler were waved past the registration desk through the door to the examination area. Bruised and shaken passengers of a car accident consoled each other as they awaited medical treatment.

Outside, the persistent wail of arriving and departing ambulances added to the familiar cacophony of New York traffic.

A hand touched Meghan's arm. "How's it going, Counselor?"

It was Jack Murphy from Channel 5. His wife had gone through NYU Law School with Meghan. Unlike Meghan, however, Liz was practicing law. Meghan Collins, Juris Doctor, had worked for a Park Avenue law firm for six months, quit and got a job at WPCD radio as a news reporter. She'd been there three years now and for the past month had been borrowed regularly by PCD Channel 3, the television affiliate.

"It's going okay, I guess," Meghan told him. Her beeper sounded.

"Have dinner with us soon," Jack said "It's been too long." He rejoined his cameraman as she reached to get her cellular phone out of the bag.

The call was from Ken Simon at the WPCD radio news desk. "Meg, the EMS scanner just picked up an ambulance heading for Roosevelt. Stabbing victim found on Fifty-sixth Street and Tenth. Watch for her."

The ominous ee-aww sound of an approaching ambulance coincided with the staccato tapping of hurrying feet. The trauma team was heading for the Emergency entrance. Meg broke the connection, dropped the phone in her bag and followed the empty stretcher as it was wheeled out to the semicircular driveway.

The ambulance screeched to a halt. Experienced hands rushed to assist in transferring the victim to the stretcher. An oxygen mask was clamped on her face. The sheet covering her slender body was bloodstained. Tangled chestnut hair accentuated the blue-tinged pallor of her neck.

Meg rushed to the driver's door. "Any witnesses?" she asked quickly.

"None came forward." The driver's face was lined and weary, his voice matter-of-fact. "There's an alley between two of those old tenements near Tenth. Looks like someone came up from behind, shoved her in it and stabbed her. Probably happened in a split second."

"How bad is she?"

"As bad as you can get."

"Identification?"

"None. She'd been robbed. Probably hit by some druggie who needed a fix."

The stretcher was being wheeled in. Meghan darted back into the emergency room behind it.

One of the reporters snapped, "The senator's doctor is about to give a statement."

The media surged across the room to crowd around the desk. Meghan did not know what instinct kept her near the stretcher. She watched as the doctor about to start an IV removed the oxygen mask and lifted the victim's eyelids.

"She's gone," he said.

Meghan looked over a nurse's shoulder and stared down into the unseeing blue eyes of the dead young woman. She gasped as she took in those eyes, the broad forehead, arched brows, high cheekbones, straight nose, generous lips.

It was as though she was looking into a mirror.

She was looking at her own face.

Clark's novel about a reporter's investigation of her family's secret past was a 13-week PW bestseller. (May)

School Library Journal

YA-First-time readers and longtime fans will find Clark's new book a fast-paced, intricately woven tale of suspense and intrigue. Meghan Collins, newly hired TV reporter, makes a startling discovery while on assignment at a large metropolitan hospital. An unidentified young woman dying of a knife wound is rushed into the emergency ward, and Meghan finds herself staring down at a person who could be her double. She is thrust into an investigation that not only involves finding out the identity of the dead woman, but also uncovering the details of her father's puzzling death 10 months earlier. No trace of his body or car was ever found. To complicate things further, Meghan's next assignment reveals some questionable procedures at a fertility clinic in regard to in vitro fertilization of identical twins. Clark masterfully fits all the pieces together, delivering an expertly written, gripping mystery that will appeal to YAs.-Nancy Bard, Thomas Jefferson Sci-Tech, Fairfax County, VA

It's only fitting that duplicity be the theme of the tale that raises the number of Clark's novels to double digits. In it, our heroine is Meghan Collins, a young reporter who's just landed a coveted spot on network news, but her satisfaction is tempered by sadness and worry as the investigation into her father's puzzling death flounders in uncertainty. It seemed as though Collins was swept into the Hudson River in a freak accident on the Tappan Zee bridge, but there's no trace of car wreckage and no body. The insurance company won't pay up, and Meghan's grief-stricken mother, who believes she is entitled to double indemnity, is afraid that she'll loose her cherished Connecticut inn if funds aren't forthcoming. Then Meghan has a jolting experience while covering a news story at a Manhattan hospital. An unidentified young woman is rushed in, dying from a knife wound to the heart, and--there's not other way to put it--she's a dead ringer for Meghan. Who is she? Is Collins dead or alive? As Meghan turns sleuth, she uncovers some highly unethical procedures at a fertility clinic involving in vitro fertilization and--what else?--identical twins. Then she discovers evidence of her father's double life and we realize that many characters have dual identities and hidden motives. Sleek and substantial, this classy thriller will make the lists.
