A desperate mother. Her missing child. A stolen chalice. With Silent Night, Mary Higgins Clark, America's own Queen of Suspense, gave her readers their best Christmas present ever. Now, with All Through the Night, she once again celebrates the Christmas season with a tale of suspense that will keep readers turning the pages -- all through the night. At the center of the novel are two of Mary Higgins Clark's most beloved characters, Alvirah, the lottery winner turned amateur sleuth, and her husband, Willy, both of them caught up in a Christmas mystery that calls on all of Alvirah's deductive powers, as well as Willy's world-class common sense. The story begins when a young unmarried woman leaves her newborn child on the rectory doorstep at a church on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. At the same moment, inside the church, a young man is stealing a treasured artifact, a chalice adorned with a single star-shaped diamond. Both the infant and the chalice disappear. Seven years later, a few weeks before Christmas, Alvirah and Willy are busy helping Willy's sister Cordelia, a nun who runs a thrift shop that doubles as an after-school shelter for neighborhood kids, prepare for the upcoming Christmas pageant. The future of the shelter is threatened, however, when the city condemns the building for that use, and it is further jeopardized when a nearby brownstone to which the shelter was to be moved turns out to have been willed to a young couple who were tenants in the building. Alvirah refuses to believe that the will is genuine and sets out to prove that the couple are con artists. Soon she is involved in the mystery of the chalice and the child. In All Through the Night, Mary Higgins Clark has fashioned a Christmas gift for all her readers.… (lisätietoja)

Serviceable Christmas mystery featuring several plot elements, including an abandoned baby, a stolen chalice, and a old lady who loves her soap operas, that all get resolved neatly at the end. Despite the subtitle, if you are looking for real suspense, you won't find it here. ( )

This is a sweet Christmas mystery, actually a double mystery. It's charming with the innocence of the children in the after-school program as they prepare their Christmas pageant. There's tension and sadness in hearing about the life of a concert violinist's internal strife and then the bad guys seem to have no redeeming qualities. What more could you hope for...redemption? Isn't that the perfect Christmas idea?! I do so enjoy these Christmas mysteries of Mary Higgins Clark. ( )

Una joven soltera abandona a su bebé dentro de un cohcecito en la puerta de una iglesia de Manhattan, mientras un hombre está dentro robando un valioso cáliz. El ladrón se lleva también el cochecito. Siete años más tarde, una serie de pistas aparentemente inconexas llevarán a la detective aficionada Alvirah y su marido Willy a desentrañar el dramático enigma.

A Christmas suspense story that involves a missing abandoned baby and a stolen chalice from the church. Years later everything that happened resurfaces and Alvirah and Willy solve mystery.
  SABC | Dec 5, 2015 |
A young unmarried woman leaves her newborn baby on the rectory doorstep of a church on Manhattan's Upper West Side. At that same moment, inside the church, a young man is in the process of stealing a treasured artifact - a chalice adorned with a single star-shaped diamond. Both the infant and the chalice subsequently disappear.

Seven years later, a few weeks before Christmas - lottery winner turned amateur sleuth - Alvirah Meehan and her husband Willy, are busy helping Willy's sister Cordelia - a nun who runs a thrift store that doubles as an after-school shelter for the neighborhood kids - prepare for the upcoming Christmas pageant. However, the shelter's future is threatened when the city condemns the building for that use. Then it is further jeopardized when the nearby brownstone to which the shelter was to be moved turns out to have been willed to a young couple who were already tenants in the building.

Convinced that something suspicious is going on, Alvirah refuses to believe that the will is genuine. She sets out to prove the couple are con artists. Soon she is involved with the mystery of the stolen chalice and child.

While this was certainly a good story and I enjoyed reading it; I'm not entirely sure what grade to give it. In my opinion, the mystery was perhaps a little simplistic, and the plot seemed slightly hurried - at least to me. I would have preferred it if this story had been slightly longer, so that the plot could be better developed and the characters better drawn and more believable. Overall, I give this book a B+! ( )
