Book: 48 Clues into the Disappearance of My Sister (June 2024)

By Joyce Carol Oates

June 18, 2024

Sculptor Marguerite has disappeared from her small town in upstate New York. But was foul play involved? Did she merely get away for some fun? Or did she finally decide to leave behind her claustrophobic life of limited opportunities?

Younger sister Gigi wonders if the clues left in Marguerite’s wake – the flimsy silk Dior dress, so casually abandoned; the footprints made by her Ferragamo boots, which end abruptly close to home – are really clues at all.

Bit by bit, revelations about both women are uncovered, together with Gigi’s true feelings about the much-loved Marguerite. The fate of the missing beauty slowly and subtly comes to light in this suspenseful story about the complex relationship between two sisters.
