Publisher's Summary

The queen of suspense is back!

Mary Higgins Clark’s new novel - the 30th and most spine-chilling of her long career as America’s most beloved author of suspense fiction - is about the newest and most up-to-date of crimes: identity theft. Who has not read about - or experienced - with a sinking feeling the fear that someone else out there may be using your credit cards, accessing your bank account, even stealing your entire identity.

In I’ll Walk Alone, Alexandra “Zan” Moreland, a gifted, beautiful interior designer on the threshold of a successful Manhattan career, is terrified to discover that somebody is not only using her credit cards and manipulating her financial accounts to bankrupt her and destroy her reputation, but may also be impersonating her in a scheme that may involve the much more brutal crimes of kidnapping and murder. Zan is already haunted by the disappearance of her own son, Matthew, kidnapped in broad daylight two years ago in Central Park - a tragedy that has left her torn between hope and despair.

Now, on what would be Matthew’s fifth birthday, photos surface that seem to show Zan kidnapping her own child, followed by a chain of events that suggests somebody (but who, Zan asks herself desperately, and why?) has stolen her identity.

Hounded by the press, under investigation by the police, attacked by both her angry ex-husband and a vindictive business rival, Zan, wracked by fear and pain and sustained only by her belief, which nobody else shares, that Matthew is still alive, sets out to discover who is behind this cruel hoax.

What she does not realize is that with every step she takes toward the truth, she is putting herself - and those she loves most - in mortal danger from the person who has ingeniously plotted out her destruction.

I loved it - a Great read

I had alot of chores to get done this weekend, and finished the book before all my chores were done. What a disappointment. It was a great story, just the way I like them, to the point, not stretching it out with unneeded descriptions. Highly recommend for a quick read that you can't put down. It's a case of who dunnit and you would never guess who. A real page turner, so to speak.

Another fun Mary Higgins Clark listen

A fun mystery which will keep you entertained. I thought I had figured out who the "bad guy" was but she had me fooled until close to the end. A nice, light mystery which isn't so scary that you have to leave all the lights on after listening!

fragile?

For most of the book I found the main character to be a little dim witted and fragile. Her credit card has huge charges that she neglects to investigate? ? hmmmm

A Page Turner

I enjoyed the twists and turns and surprises. The characters were believable. Being from North Jersey related to the NY locations and landmarks.

Good story, not my favorite

Mary Higgins Clark is one of my favorite authors. With that being said, this one was my least favorite so far. This story seemed to go on forever. Regardless, I’m still a fan and will continue to read her novels.

Terrific!

Loved it. Very well written. Just when I thought I had solved the mystery, I was thrown another curve ball. Love Jan Maxwell. Her voice is wonderful. Here I go on to another Mary Higgins Clark mystery!

Thoroughly enjoyed!

Would you listen to I'll Walk Alone again? Why?

Yes, after a few years... It's just my kinda book! No swearing which shows to me, this writer can make ALL of her points by using language that is intelligent... very interesting with twists and turns and held my interest throughout it's entirety.

What was one of the most memorable moments of I'll Walk Alone?

I don't want to give away anything so I can't answer :-)

Have you listened to any of Jan Maxwell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Compares very well to her other "reads", she's very, very good...

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

ummmm... not sure.

Any additional comments?

If you like a clean, interesting mystery, then this is the books for you!
