Produktbeschreibung
Dr. Jonathan Lyons, a seventy-year-old biblical scholar, believes he has found the rarest of parchments - a letter that may have been written by Jesus Christ. Stolen from the Vatican library in the fifteenth century, it was assumed to be lost forever.Under the promise of secrecy, Jonathan attempts to confirm his findings with several other biblical experts. But on the eve before his own murder, he confides to Father Aiden O'Brien, a family friend, that one of those whom he trusted most is determined to keep it from being returned to the Vatican.The next evening Jonathan Lyons is found shot to death in his New Jersey home. His daughter, twenty-seven year old Mariah, finds her fathers body sprawled over his desk in his study, a fatal bullet wound in the back of his neck, and her mother, Kathleen, an Alzheimers victim, hiding in the study closet, incoherent and clutching the murder weapon. The police suspect that Kathleen, who in her lucid moments knows that Jonathan was involved with a much younger woman Lily Stewart, has committed the murder.But Mariah believes that the key to her fathers death is tied to another question: Where is the missing parchment? Whom, among his close circle of friends, might he have consulted? And did one of them kill to keep possession of the letter? What Mariah doesnt know is that there was an eyewitness to the murder, someone whose unwise attempt to blackmail the killer begins a new circle of death, with Mariah as the ultimate target of one persons obsession with a priceless historical treasure.

Rezensionen
Praise for Mary Higgins Clark's The Lost Years:

"Once again Mary Higgins Clark affirms why she is the 'Queen of Suspense'... Ms. Clark has another winner for her readers to enjoy getting us there with this entertaining taut tale in which the suspense spins from family violence to biblical archeological violence." --Mystery Gazette

"At once a breathless murder mystery and a hunt for what may be the most precious religious and archeological treasure of all time." --BookReporter.com

"Clark, known rightly as the queen of suspense, performs her usual magic...An intriguing blend of religious history and contemporary mystery, "The Lost Years" confirms Clark's status as a writer who is willing and able to bend her formula - and to do so successfully-to address topics not often found in the genre." --Richmond Times Dispatch

"If you're someone who enjoys sharing novels with others, though, beware: lend this book and you may never get it back. That's because, for mystery fans, 'The Lost Years' is truly a keeper." --Pittsburgh Tribune
