Back Cover / Inside Flap:"On tranquil Cape Cod, a young couple tries to escape from the horrors of their past - only to become trapped in a nightmare beyond their understanding, beyond their control.

Menley Nichols never stopped blaming herself for the accidental death of her two-year-old son. Her marriage to Adam, a high-profile criminal attorney, has started to fall apart - but the birth of their daughter Hannah promises to revitalize their relationship. Adam decides to rent a house on Cape Cod, a serene haven that's ideal for Menley and Hannah.

At Remember House, an eighteenth-century landmark with a sinister past, strange incidents force Menley to relive the accident in which she lost her son, and she begins to fear for Hannah's safety. Then Adam takes on a client suspected of murder after his wife drowns in a violent squall - and the family is drawn into a rising tide of terror. On a dark, rainswept beach, Adam and Menley will confront their worst fears - leading to a harrowing, suspenseful climax that only Mary Higgins Clark, America's Queen of Suspense, could have created."

Review:In Remember Me, Clark presents her usual strong female main character, but this iteration is fighting demons worse than any of her prior stories, including Where are the Children. This story features three diverging story lines - a widower accused of causing or contributing to his young heiress wife's death, a wife dealing with one child's death while trying to be a good mom to her other child, and a husband whose ex-girlfriend has some majorly unresolved feelings. The way in which all three stories are intertwined is masterful and exciting. The tale's end will leave you gasping in shock...and sitting on the edge of your seat. Pick it up today!
