Hoping to divert the boys from worry about their father, and to temper her own near despair, on Christmas Eve Catherine takes the boys to see Rockefeller Center’s famous Christmas tree. When they stop to listen to a street musician, Brian, the younger boy, sees a woman take his mother’s wallet, which holds a precious memento his grandmother has just given them, a St. Christopher medal that saved her husband’s life in World War II, and which she and Brian believe will save his father’s life now.
Unable to get his mother’s attention, Brian impulsively follows the woman who has taken the wallet into the city’s subways, thereby beginning a journey that will threaten his life and change that of his mother and of the thief, as well.”
This is an older Clark book that has been sitting on my TBR shelf for far too long! It’s a very quick read with an engaging storyline. Any Clark fan or mystery lover looking for a quick afternoon read should pick this one up!
