At the heart of Mary Higgins Clark's new novel of suspense is a brutal murder: that of Gary Lasch, a respected and successful young Greenwich, Connecticut, doctor and hospital and HMO head. The news strikes Greenwich society like a thunderbolt - as does the news that Molly Carpenter Lasch, the beautiful young wife of the slain doctor, has been arrested for her husband's murder.
Nobody believes Molly's claim to have no memory of the events of the night of the crime - not her parents, not her friends, not even her own lawyer - and evidence against her is overwhelming. To escape an inevitable murder conviction, she accepts a plea bargain, and subsequently her lawyer wins her early parole.
A few years later, on Molly's release from prison, she reasserts her innocence in front of TV cameras and reporters gathered at the prison gate. Among them is an old acquaintance and schoolmate, Fran Simmons, currently working as investigative reporter for the True Crime television series.
Determined to prove her innocence, Molly convinces Fran to research and present a program on Gary's death. Despite her skepticism, Fran agrees to go ahead.
Fran, intent on assuaging Molly's doubts about her husband's death and her own gnawing questions about her father's suicide, soon finds herself enmeshed in a tangled web of intrigue and menace - more deaths and more unanswered questions about Gary Lasch's murder.
