Mary Higgins Clark
The conflict in this book is that Zan's son Matthew was kidnapped 2 years ago and was never found. Now someone came forward with pictures showing Zan kidnapping her own son. Zan seems to be pretty convincing that she wouldn't kidnap her own son, and that the pictures are doctored. One character brought up the possibility that if the photos are real Zan has a split personality and one personality stole Matthew. However, I don't think this is true because it was already brought up and if she has a split personality , it wouldn't be suspenseful. Also the author goes into the mind of the real kidnapper. By using dramatic irony the readers know that someone else stole Matthew, but the characters don't know this. I have know idea who it could be. I think it would be someone the author introduced, but I don't think it will be one of the main suspects. Mary Higgins Clark is good at revealing everything until the end and will surprise the reader.
