Daddy's Gone A-Hunting by Mary Higgins Clark
  

Lovereading view...

A highly prolific author of mostly ‘family in jeopardy’ suspense novels gives us a tale of a dreadful fire destroying a family business and nearly killing one of its owners. The victim’s younger sister seeks answers. This is not one of her best but Higgins Clark is very professional and if you are new to her you’ve got some great backlist titles to absorb. If you are a fan then you’ve got to read this while you’re waiting for the next.

If you like Mary Higgins Clark you might also like to read books by Tami Hoag, Linda Castillo and Sophie Hannah.

A dark family secret puts the lives of two sisters in grave danger Hannah Connelly is plunged into a nightmare when she learns that Connelly Fine Antique Reproductions, the family business founded by her grandfather, has been levelled by a huge explosion. The ashes reveal a startling and grisly discovery. Could the explosion have been deliberately set?

With Kate lying in a coma in hospital, it is now down to Hannah to discover what truly happened. But little does she know that someone will do anything they can to prevent Kate regaining consciousness. Will Hannah find out the truth before that person kills to save himself?
