When Professor Allan Grant is found stabbed to death, all the evidence points to an obsessed student, 21-year-old Laurie Kenyon. She sent him passionate letters, stalked him, watched him through his study window. And after the murder, she wakes up in her dormitory, covered in blood and clutching the knife that killed him, with no memory of the brutal crime. Laurie's sister and attorney, Sarah, is the only one who understands Laurie's daily nightmare and the shocking lingering effects of a childhood kidnapping too hideous to be recalled. Laurie's abductors - Bic Hawkins and his wife Opal, now prominent TV evangelists - fear she will start to remember her life with them.

Publishers Weekly, 1992-03-30 Effectively exploiting her canny knack for placing women and children in deadly peril, Clark has pulled out all the stops in her newest effort (after Loves Music, Loves to Dance ). As a child, Laurie Kenyon was kidnapped and abused by a creepy pair named Bic and Opal, and she developed complex multiple personalities as a result. Now she is a college senior and a prime suspect in the murder of an attractive male professor. Might one of her personalities have been responsible? If so, can her protective sister Sarah, now an ace lawyer? confusing as is--if she's prosecutor, she wouldn't be defending her sister , defend her successfully? And will Bic and Opal, now successful televangelists, manage to silence her if she seems likely to identify them as her childhood tormentors? The plotting is swift and slickly managed, with a genuinely surprising twist toward the end. Clark wastes no time on extraneous details of character and atmosphere, but the very skills that make her a popular fast read mean that readers who look for nuance, flavor and shading even in their suspense thrillers will find their cravings unsatisfied. Still, of its efficient, machine-made type, this is a suspenseful page-turner. 500,000 first printing; Literary Guild main selection; author tour. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
