Charles “Mack” Mackenzie went missing ten years ago. He was in college and had been accepted to law school. He got along with his family, had good friends yet one day he just disappeared. The only time his family hears from him is on Mother’s Day. He calls, says he is o.k. and hangs up. His sister, Carolyn, has had enough. When Mack calls this time, she tells him that she is going to look for him and won’t stop until she finds him. This threat starts a chain of events nobody saw coming.

Will he turn out to be a killer? Carolyn will have to search deep inside herself to find the strength to deal with whatever the answers are. Because the answers may cost Carolyn her life.
This was a very good book by Mary Higgins Clark. Her last couple of books weren’t that great for me. And she always introduces a lot of characters which can be hard to keep track of. Where Are You Now has definitely brought back the old Mary Higgins Clark.
