Where are the children? - Mary Higgins Clark

Nancy Harmon has a new home, a loving husband and two beautiful children. The thing is, she's had all this before ...Seven years ago she escaped from a volatile marriage and the devastating deaths of her first two children. Now, she's trying to start afresh. The accusations. The newspaper stories. The blame. That's all behind her. Or so she thinks. For someone has not forgotten. Somebody who is determined to bring the terror and the pain hurtling back. One cold morning, Nancy leaves her children to play outside - but when she returns, they have disappeared. With growing terror, she realises it has begun again ...

Nancy was the prime suspect when her first 2 children died years ago, so when her other 2 children also go missing, Nancy is first to be accused. The story centres on trying to trace what has happened to the kids, and to prove her innocence in both cases. It was a thrilling read, I couldn't put it down. This was my 4th MHC book that I've read and it won't be my last

As Julie says, sounds like it could be a sad read.
