Image of I'll Walk Alone: A Novel

With identity theft and child kidnapping cases hitting the newspapers every day, the queen of suspense has interwoven two terrifying crimes in one case. There’s nobody like Clark to nail the combination of a fast-paced chase, terror, heartache and revelations in an excruciatingly complicated puzzle that doesn’t fall into place until the last shocking pages.

Alexandra “Zan” Moreland discovers that someone has been using her credit cards and bank accounts and also may be impersonating her on the second anniversary of the disappearance of her toddler son Matthew, who was kidnapped in broad daylight from Central Park. When photos surface that appear to show Zan kidnapping her own child, the police take a new look at the case, with her as their prime suspect. Then Father Aiden O’Brien, a parish priest who is seen in the company of a woman who looks like Zan, is attacked. Could it be that Zan is going crazy and can’t remember any of her actions? Or is somebody else setting her up? (SIMON AND SCHUSTER, Apr., 352 pp., $25.99)
