Overview

In this riveting thriller from Queen of Suspense and #1 New York Times bestselling writer Mary Higgins Clark brilliantly weaves the mystery of twin telepathy into a mother’s search for a kidnapped child, presumed dead.

When Margaret and Steve Frawley come home to Connecticut from a black-tie dinner in New York, their three-year-old twins, Kathy and Kelly, are gone. The police found the babysitter unconscious, and a ransom note from the “Pied Piper” demands eight million dollars. Steve’s global investment firm puts up the money, but when they go to retrieve the twins, only Kelly is in the car. The dead driver’s suicide note says he inadvertently killed Kathy.

At the memorial, Kelly tugs Margaret’s arm and says: “Mommy, Kathy is very scared of that lady. She wants to come home right now.” At first, only Margaret believes that the twins are communicating and that Kathy is still alive. But as Kelly’s warnings become increasingly specific and alarming, FBI agents set out on a desperate search.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Mary Higgins Clark's psychological thriller explores the close -- and sometimes telepathic -- link between twins. After three-year old twin sisters Kathy and Kelly Frawley are kidnapped from their Connecticut home and held for ransom, Kelly is returned safely but Kathy is believed to be dead -- until Kelly incredibly begins imparting information about her sister's whereabouts and the identity of her ruthless abductors.

Although three minor criminals were involved in the actual abduction of the girls, the mastermind behind the heinous crime calls himself the Pied Piper, and he alone is receiving the lion's share of the $8 million ransom. But just as his meticulously constructed crime is about to come to its scheduled conclusion -- with the twins being safely reunited with their parents and the four criminals getting away with the money -- one of the Pied Piper's crew, an emotionally unstable woman hired to take care of the girls during their confinement, throws a monkey wrench into the plans by killing one of the kidnappers and taking off with Kathy. Can the twins' almost supernatural bond help save Kathy?

Thematically reminiscent of Clark's first novel (1975's Where Are the Children?), this 2006 work will not only keep readers guessing until the very end about the identity of the criminal mastermind but also compel them to check the locks on all the doors and windows before they go to bed. While not graphically violent, this disturbing novel will chill readers to the bone -- especially parents of young children. Paul Goat Allen
From the Publisher
"Riveting....Rivaling Clark's debut, Where Are the Children?, this suspense thriller is certain to send terror into the heart of any parent."

Publishers Weekly

Publishers Weekly
Bestseller Clark is at her best when writing of crime against children, as shown in this chilling tale of kidnapping, murder and telepathy. Before leaving for a black-tie affair in New York City, Margaret and Steve Frawley celebrate the third birthday of their twin girls, Kathy and Kelly, with a party at their new home in Ridgefield, Conn. Later that night, when Margaret can't reach the babysitter, she contacts the Ridgefield police. The frantic couple return home to find the children missing and a ransom note demanding $8 million. Though the Frawleys meet all the conditions, only Kelly turns up in a car along with a dead driver and a suicide note saying that Kathy has died. But Kelly's telepathic messages from her sister keep telling her differently, and Margaret won't give up hope. Even the most skeptical law enforcement officers and the FBI, who pursue suspects from New York to Cape Cod, begin to believe Kelly is on to something. Clues from ordinary people lead to a riveting conclusion. Rivaling Clark's debut-Where Are the Children?-this suspense thriller is certain to send terror into the heart of any parent. (Apr.)

Meet the Author

Mary Higgins Clark, #1 international and New York Times bestselling author, has written thirty-three suspense novels; three collections of short stories; a historical novel, Mount Vernon Love Story; two children’s books, including The Magical Christmas Horse; and a memoir, Kitchen Privileges. She is also the coauthor with Carol Higgins Clark of five holiday suspense novels. Her books have sold more than 100 million copies in the United States alone.

Biography

The Queen of Suspense, Bronx-born and -bred Mary Higgins Clark has achieved international success against heavy odds. Her father died when she was 11, and her mother struggled to raise and provide for Mary and her two brothers. Clark attended secretarial school after high school and worked for three years in an advertising agency before leaving to become a stewardess for Pan American Airlines. Throughout 1949, she flew international flights to Europe, Africa, and Asia. " I was in a revolution in Syria and on the last flight into Czechoslovakia before the Iron Curtain went down," she recalls. In 1950, she quit her job to marry Warren Clark, a neighbor nine years her senior whom she had known and admired since she was 16.

In the early years of her marriage, Clark began writing short stories, making her first sale in 1956 to Extension Magazine. Between writing and raising a family, the decade flew by. Then, in 1964, Warren Clark suffered a fatal heart attack, leaving his young widow with five children to support. She went to work writing radio scripts; and, around this time, she decided to try her hand at writing books. Inspired by a radio series she was working on, she drafted a biographical novel about George Washington. It was published in 1969 under the title Aspire to the Heavens. (In 2002, it was re-issued as Mount Vernon Love Story.) Her first suspense novel, Where Are the Children?, appeared in print in 1975. It was a huge hit and marked a turning point in her life. Since then, she has developed a loyal fan base, and each of her novels has hit the bestseller lists. She has also co-written stories and novels with her daughter Carol, a successful author in her own right.

In the 1970s, Clark enrolled in Fordham University at Lincoln Center, graduating summa cum laude in 1979. A great supporter of education, she has served as a trustee of her alma mater and Providence College and holds numerous honorary degrees. She remains active in Catholic affairs and has been honored with many awards. Her publisher, Simon & Schuster, funds an annual award in her name to be given to authors of suspense fiction writing in the Mary Higgins Clark tradition.

Introduction

The priest went to Margaret and Steve and, in a voice trembling with compassion, said,

"God has sent you back one of your little girls. Kelly is safe. Kathy has been taken to Him."

Reeling from the bittersweet return of one of their kidnapped twin daughters, Margaret and Steve Frawley are sadly trying to go on with their lives for the sake of the remaining twin, Kelly. However, Kelly is adamant that her sister is not dead, warning, "Mommy, Kelly is crying for you and she is scared." The police, along with a twins' specialist, think Kelly is just mourning the death of her sister in her own way. But when Kelly gets bruises that appear out of nowhere, exhibits signs of a sickness that isn't hers, and offers important bits of information about the case, it becomes clear to Margaret that her daughter is experiencing twin telepathy — she is feeling Kathy's pain and trying to lead her parents to the missing girl before it is too late.

Fighting against the clock and the popular opinion that she's having a mental breakdown, Margaret Frawley uses her maternal instincts and the special bond between her daughters to bring her family back together. But there are suspicious characters at every turn — from the executives at her husband's company who supply the money for the ransom to the wealthy neighbor who acts as the liaison to the kidnappers to the blackest sheep in their very own family. And one of them is the "Pied Piper," the person who orchestrated the crime . . . the one leading the Frawleys, the police, and even his co-conspirators to Cape Cod where he plans to wash away all the evidence that connectshim to the Two Little Girls in Blue.

Discussion Questions

  1. Who did you think was the Pied Piper? Were you satisfied with the answer? Were there any characters who escaped your suspicion? If so, which ones?
  2. "Staring with disdain at his fellow kidnapper, Lucas was reminded once more that they could not have been more different in both appearance and temperament" (page 4). Compare and contrast the characters of Lucas and Clint. Is one more of the "bad guy" than the other? If so, explain why.
  3. "Why would someone take my babies?" (page 14). After the kidnapping, Margaret goes from being a hysterical mother to a proactive one. Give examples of each phase of grief — shock, denial, bargaining, guilt, anger, depression, acceptance and hope — that she passes through. Which phase triggers a memory that had been eluding her, a memory that brings her closer to the truth?
  4. Prior to the kidnapping, Margaret kept a journal documenting the twins' behaviors. What events does the journal foreshadow?
  5. "I've always been a just-in-case person . . ." (page 142). Examine the character of Angie and piece together her history in the book. Are her behaviors cunning and cautious? Or careless and reckless?
  6. "Everything had been clicking along so smoothly, and then the one weak link in the chain, the one he always knew was a problem, had indeed become the problem" (page 204). Who or what is the "weak link" for Richard Mason and how does it break?
  7. The color blue appears throughout the novel, some in subtle references. List them all. What does this motif add to the story?
  8. "What I like about the way this played out is that he might have gotten away with all of it if he had trusted Lucas not to tell Clint who he was" (page 321). What other instances of irony are there in this novel?
  9. Kathy and Kelly are identical twins yet they have their own distinct personalities. How would you describe each girl? Do you think they seem too dependent upon each other? Or do they each prove their own strengths by the end of the novel?
  10. Review the story The Pied Piper of Hamelin and discuss the obvious, and not-so-obvious links to Two Little Girls in Blue.
  11. Have you read other books on twin telepathy? If so, how are they similar to or different than this novel?

Who Said That?

Test your memory. See if you can guess which character said the quote below.

  1. "Even asleep they're still holding hands. Isn't that precious?" (Answer on page 10.)
  2. "I never had kids, but it doesn't take a lot of imagination to figure out what those poor parents are feeling now." (Answer on page 18.)
  3. "I shall save my appearance before the media for another day." (Answer on page 37.)
  4. "I like red because it is a happy color." (Answer on page 45.)
  5. ". . . criminals make mistakes. They think they've thought of everything, but they do make mistakes." (Answer on page 54.)
  6. "Waiting does not seem long once it is accomplished." (Answer on page 94.)
  7. "Grief separates as many people as it brings closer . . ." (Answer on page 140.)
  8. "I never had trouble getting an attractive woman. I have two divorces from smart, attractive women to prove it." (Answer on page 174.)
  9. "I'll do anything not to lose all this." (Answer on page 201.)
  10. "You and me. The two of us. That's the way it's gotta be." (Answer on page 214.)
  11. "When she disappeared, I put my life on hold, and it will remain on hold until I know exactly what happened to her." (Answer on page 255.)

    unrealistic

    I was extremely disappointed in this book. It seemed too unrealistic with the twin talk and telepathy. Sure it might be based on fact but in my opinion the author took the telepathy too far to the point where it is completely unrealistic. The many different characters that were so briefly described got very confusing. I also didn't feel the suspense at all. I suggest you don't read this book.

    Wow , What a story

    I have not read MHC in a long time , but glad I picked this book to get back into. Two twins that get stolen and how the deep tie the twins have brings them back together. Couldn't put it down because of the need to find out what happens to them. A few word errors but not bad.

    Another Fast Paced Thriller

    Mary Higgins Clark delivers her usual high action, fast paced and thrilling pager turner. This story's pace kept me engaged and finding it difficult to put the book down. The story begins with kidnapping of twin 3 year old girls, evolves into an unsolved mystery surrounding the return of one twin and a frantic search and rescue. During the story telling many great characters, suspects and supporting members of the return and search of the twins enter the drama. In the end they are all tightly woven back to bring the multi story lines into a solid ending.

    Highly recommend this fast paced and interesting read.

    I'm a quick reader - but that is not always good.  Now I have to go back and read the ending of this book.  I tended to daydream while reading it - thinking what would I be feeling and what would I do.  I can't think of anything that would be worse.  I figured that the way it was going, she would be washed ashore.  So I quickread and now I have to go back and read the last part of the book.  I can't say I enjoyed the book as it was frightening.  I immediately was in the mother's shoes.  I'll definitely read more of her books.

    This is a good mystery although not real suspenseful.  Never felt connected to the characters and the telepathy between the twins seemed a little far fetched.  The plot was interesting though and it is a very fast read.
