“While I was reading the book, I was planning on giving it a single star because I was so disappointed to know who did it from the start. Boy was I wrong!

“Good read, you will not believe who "did it"! At least, I didn't ---have to say the person was not on my radar. I'll Walk Alone is about a woman whose son is missing, she's been looking for him endlessly. Someone is dressing, looking like her, and photos become public with a woman who looks like her kidnapping her son. How does she prove she's innocent and someone is out to get her?”Jo Ann L.

“Better than her last few books. About a woman who is a victim of identity theft two years after her young son was kidnapped. Features former characters from other books, but has new central characters. Quick read that holds your attention.”csbooklover wrote this review Friday, July 22, 2011.

“Clark's newest mystery/suspense work "I'll Walk Alone" revolves around Zan Moreland, an ambitious interior designer who has suffered the death of her parents in a car accident, and then is faced with the kidnapping of her son. Initially, the media and the police are on her side believing her to be a grieving mother, but soon, when the appearance of a photograph showing Zan kidnapping her son is released to the press, Zan's life is turned upside down and everyone begins to doubt her innocence. Furthermore, she finds out that someone has been stealing her identity when unknown purchases of clothes and interior design equipment are charged on her card. She knows someone is framing her for her son's kidnapping, but no one seems to believe her. Will she be able to prove it in time before the person who seeks to destroy gets closer to his/her goal.
Firstly, I am a huge Mary Higgins Clark fan. I liked this book enough to devour it in two days. What I liked about the book is that it is a page turner, you will be wanting to know "who did it." The story moves along fairly quickly, but at times you may grow weary of the same things being said again and again. Also, I thought the story would be more focused on identity theft than it actually was. Clark just grazed by the subject and it was not a major portion of the book. I think it would have been more interested if that theme was built upon.
The story jumps from one character's point of view to another's each chapter, so if you are new to Clark's books, you will have to get used to memorizing the characters.
Overall, the book was a fun read, but I did not enjoy it as much as I did her previous works. Also, as a previous reviewer mentioned, Clark's books pretty much always follow the same outline and use the same stock characters. So if you are an avid reader, you may be feeling as though "you've read 'em once, you've read 'em all."
All that being said, I am awaiting any new books this author releases, and I look forward to reading them.”
