The highly anticipated follow-up to the Queen of Suspense's iconic bestseller, Where Are the Children?. THEY THOUGHT IT COULDN'T HAPPEN AGAIN. THEY WERE WRONG. A lawyer turned successful podcaster, Missy has worked hard to put the past behind her. More than four decades ago, her mother, Nancy Harmon, was convicted of the murder of her first two children and released on a technicality. Shunned by her family and the media, she was building a new life for herself in Cape Cod when her children from a second marriage, Missy and her brother Mike, vanished too. Once again the prime suspect, this time Nancy was able to confront the secrets buried in her past and rescue her kids from a dangerous predator. But Nancy's past has a long reach. Missy has recently married a man whose first wife died tragically, leaving him and their young daughter, Riley, behind. While Missy and her brother Mike help their mother relocate from Cape Cod to the equally idyllic Hamptons, Missy's new stepdaughter goes missing. As history chillingly repeats itself, Missy and Mike must draw on memories of their own abduction as they race to find Riley and save her from the same trauma they experienced - or something much worse . . . Just like the original, Where Are the Children Now? will keep you holding your breath until the very last page.
