First edition. Author's first mystery novel. Full page presentation inscription on the front fly leaf, dated in the year of publication, from the author to mystery author Ruth Willock. Ruth Willock had five mysteries published between 1966 and 1977. Fine, bright clean copy in dust jacket with minor wear to the spine ends. A woman with a scandalous past is now living the good life with a husband, two children, a nice home, etc., but a newspaper article appears with a picture that looks like a younger version of herself, and on that same day, her two children mysteriously disappear from the yard. The police are puzzled and ask Where are the children? A tense, taut debut from one of the leading authors of the present day. An exceptionally touching presentation inscription by Mary Higgins Clark.
