It Only Takes a Moment by Mary Jane Clark

It Only Takes a Moment by Mary Jane Clark

There are three famous Clarks that write mysteries and suspense. Mary Jane isn’t related to either the mother or daughter of the Higgins Clark family, but she is a great suspense writer.

In this book, Eliza Blake, the hostess of a famous national morning show, is devastated when her daughter, Janie, and her housekeeper, Mrs. Garcia, never return home to Ho-Ho-Kus from Janie’s day camp in upstate New York. Eliza is certain that Janie and Mrs. Garcia must have been kidnapped, but without a ransom demand all lines of suspicion are open for scrutiny.

Clark does a great job with red herrings throwing in details that confuse and enlighten. I didn’t see the truth until the very end; and the truth was there the whole time. In my opinion, that’s the sign of a good suspense author. I enjoyed this audiobook and would give Clark another listen.
