In the gripping new novel from America's Queen of Suspense, a young woman is haunted by two murders that are closely linked -- despite the one hundred and ten years that separate them. Following the acrimonious breakup of her marriage and the searing experience of being pursued by an obsessed stalker, criminal defense attorney Emily Graham accepts an offer to leave Albany and work in a major law firm in Manhattan. Feeling a need for roots, she buys her ancestral home, a restored Victorian house in the historic New Jersey seaside resort town of Spring Lake. Her family had sold the house in 1892, after one of Emily's forebears, Madeline Shapley, then still a young girl, disappeared. Now, more than a century later, as the house is being renovated and the backyard excavated for a pool, the skeleton of a young woman is found. She is identified as Martha Lawrence, who had disappeared from Spring Lake over four year ago. Within her skeletal hand is the finger bone of another woman with a ring still on it -- a Shapley family heirloom. In seeking to find the link between her family's past and the recent murder, Emily becomes a threat to a devious and seductive killer, who has chosen her as the next victim.… (lisätietoja)

I am not going to finish this. I'm disliking every single person in this story, I am just not enjoying it. Let's move over to a more satisfying crime novel. ( )

So this was the first Mary Higgins Clark I’ve ever read and I just really loved it. I’ve seen other reviews that say it isn’t as good as some of her others but for me it is one of my favorite mysteries. I liked all the characters, even the annoying ones and felt the suspense was perfect. Mary Higgins Clark did a fabulous job of intertwining the past with the present and bring into question fate and reincarnation.

I also really liked reading a story where the cops were actually trying to help and didn’t write off the main characters thoughts as paranoia. The main character in this story is great but flawed in her inability to realize the risk she is putting her own life in but what is even better is that several of the other characters call her out on it.

The author does a really good job of closing the loop on several side plots and really weaves the two current mysteries together as well as find closure for the past mystery. I don’t this isn’t a real detailed review but I just really enjoyed this story and found it completely entertaining and engrossing. It will become one of my re-reads.

The ending seemed a bit unsupported and forced, but not to terribly. It is at least unexpected, and there are plenty of red herrings and extra suspects in this serial killing murder mystery. The fashions are a bit dated- the women in this novel wear an awful lot of pantsuits- but the damsel in distress is at least a rational, capable, respected lawyer who stays in character throughout the book. The introduction of reincarnation as a supernatural plot twist is interesting, too, and kinda works. For a fast-reading murder mystery, this one's on my recommended books list. It's definitely not a book from which readers are likely to learn a lot or gain new wisdom and insight, but it is great brain candy to read while mulling over heavier stuff. ( )

An oldie but a goodie. This book was an amazing page turner! Emily Graham wants a change so she accepts a new job in Manhattan.

Emily Graham is a criminal defense attorney who has already been through so much during her lifetime. Having already endured an exasperating ex-husband and the acrimonious breakup of her marriage - as well as the traumatic experience of being pursued by an obsessed stalker - Emily feels the need to get as far away from home as possible. So, deciding that she deserves a change of scenery, she eagerly accepts an offer to leave Albany and take up a position with a major law firm in Manhattan.

Feeling a strong desire to reestablish her roots, Emily buys her ancestral home - a restored Victorian mansion situated in the historic seaside resort town of Spring Lake, New Jersey. Her family had chosen to sell the house back in 1892, after the mysterious disappearance of nineteen-year-old Madeline Shapley - a distant relative of Emily Graham. Unfortunately, Madeline Shapley was never seen again.

More than a century later, as the house is being renovated and the backyard excavated to install a pool, the skeletal remains of a young woman are found. She is soon identified as Martha Lawrence, someone who went missing from Spring Lake over four years ago. However, Martha doesn't seem to have been buried alone - she has another woman's finger bone clutched within her skeletal hand. The lady's finger bone still has a ring on it - a ring that turns out to have been a Shapley family heirloom.

Now, as Emily seeks to discover the link between her family's past and the most recent murder, she actually finds herself haunted by both murders - despite the one hundred and ten years that separate them. Emily's subsequent investigation reveals that both crimes seem to be related to each other, yet this information isn't actually what frightens her the most. What actually begins to frighten Emily the most, is that she has somehow attracted the attention of a very devious and seductive killer - someone who ultimately sees her curiosity as a threat, and has chosen her as his next victim...

I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed reading this particular book. Actually, the story gave me the slightest impression that I was reading an Agatha Christie-style mystery - which means that I hadn't any clue at all who the perpetrator was, but absolutely no one was beyond suspicion. In my opinion, it was an intriguing and intricate plot that held my attention all the way through. I would definitely give this book an A!

I may have said this before, but I will say it again: to me, Mary Higgins Clark is a bit like Barbara Delinsky in terms of enjoyment of their books. The books that I have read by Ms. Clark have all been very entertaining and enjoyable, but sometimes she is a bit of a hit-or-miss author for me. ( )
