WHERE ARE YOU NOW?
TITLE: WHERE ARE YOU NOW
AUTHOR: MARY HIGGINS CLARK
Ten years ago, 21 year old Kevin MacKenzie (Mack) walked out of his room in student housing, never to be seen again. The only contact between him and his worried family has been an annual phone call from him on mother's day.
His younger sister Carolyn, now 26 and between jobs, interrupts his latest mother's day call to announce that she's going to find him. A note, ordering to leave him alone, fails to deter her and soon she's going over all the information available.
But, recent events are interfering. A girl has disappeared, and somehow the mystery concerning her gets connected to Mack, as do two previously disappeared girls.
Under suspicion from the police, Carolyn continues her quest to find out what happened to her brother, unaware that danger lurks very close to home.
For a long time I didn't think this was going to be a good story for me. I felt there were too many angles and characters involved, confusing me quite a few times. However, when it all came together in the last few pages, everything fell neatly into place, and every angle and character turned out to have been necessary.
