“A solid read. What I liked most was the pacing. There were no lulls, no unexpected or unwarranted accelerations. Ms. Clark's style is different than the titles I generally choose, but her story was told well. Overall, would recommend.”Kathy Reinhart wrote this review Monday, December 31, 2012.

“Zan Moreland's son was kidnapped two years ago from his stroller in Central Park while his babysitter napped on a blanket. After years of grieving and doing whatever she can to find her son, Zan now finds herself accused of the crime when a tourist comes forward with a photo showing her taking her son from his stroller.
Clark is a master at mysteries, and her stories have a moral clarity that's refreshing--the good guys are good and the bad guys are bad. No one swears or sleeps around, and the Catholic priest is a good guy(!).”
“I love Mary Higgins Clark, but this was not a favorite. If you enjoy suspense and thrill you will have to wait until the end of the book to get it. Zan Moreland is a talented interior designer who was accused of kidnapping her own son years ago. When Zan starts to receive orders she never placed and accused of being places she had never been--Zan suspects foul play. With the help of friends, new and old, Zan is eventually alble to prove her innocnece. But it is not without the author leading you down many paths to think Zan has a psychological defect or that she really could be capable of kidnapping her own son. A twist to the end will keep you reading, but other than that--don't buy it, pick it up for free at the library.
This book could be used for a pleasure read for a psychology class.”
“A clever, suspenseful book. The ending surprised me. I liked seeing the coincidences that led to the resolution of this mystery.”Delila S wrote this review Tuesday, August 21, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“I’ll Walk Alone by Mary Higgins Clark is contemporary fiction dealing with stolen identity, impersonation and the kidnapping of a 3-yr-old boy, Matthew. Zan, a young successful interior decorator is still holding out hope for her son’s return. Even though she is divorced, she agreed to have dinner with her ex-husband on what would be their son’s fifth birthday to reminisce. Things go from bad to worse for Zan when some pictures surface showing her actually kidnapping her own son!
I felt sorry for Zan throughout this story and even though it seems like all is revealed early on, there is still the mystery of who is really behind the kid’s kidnapping. This book held my interest right from the start. The police seemed to be in the dark throughout the book while Zan’s friends work to prove her innocence and find out what’s really going on with Matthew. What a nightmare this poor lady lived through! It’s definitely a book I’d recommend for anyone who likes contemporary fiction with some mystery in it.”
“Read it!! It was so twisted! I never expected the ending!! I really thought the main character was crazy and the author really made you feel like she could be, so for her to not be... and for the real culprit to be revealed... wow... just wow....”Mikki wrote this review Wednesday, July 25, 2012.
