The extraordinary new novel from Queen of Suspense Mary Higgins Clark & Alafair Burke

Television producer Laurie Moran has spent her career solving cold cases on-screen. But her next case takes place away from the glare of the spotlights . . . and the missing person is a member of her growing family.

Laurie is just days away from her midsummer wedding when her fiancé’s nephew, seven-year-old Johnny, vanishes from the beach. Witnesses spotted Johnny playing in the water and collecting shells, but no one remembers seeing him after the morning. Perhaps he got distracted and wandered off.

When Johnny’s bodyboard washes up to shore, everyone realises that the worst could have happened. The answers to Johnny’s disappearance lie in a family’s long-buried past . . . and the clock is ticking.

Piece of My Heart is another riveting page-turner from the Queen of Suspense Mary Higgins Clark and her dazzling partner-in-crime, Alafair Burke.
