Laurie Kenyon was kidnapped at the age of four, and was returned to her family two years later. Now, her parents have died, and she's suspected of killing her English professor. This book has it all - short chapters, excellent plotting, psychology and even an Australian character in this American book. Go on - read it! (A+)

ALL AROUND THE TOWN by Mary Higgins Clark is a murder mystery involving two sisters. Laurie Kenyon is the younger sister, and her story starts with her kidnapping years ago when she was only 4 years old. She disappeared for 2 years, only to be found again, but never to be the same happy child she once was. Sarah Kenyon is her older sister. She watched as her family fell apart while her parents tried desperately to find their daughter. With this in mind, Sarah becomes Laurie's protector, and vows to always be there when Laurie needed her.
The story revolves around the two women, as a murder mystery unfolds where Laurie is the accused murderer. As the story progresses, Sarah, who is now an attorney, tries to save her sister. But the more Sarah learns, the worse it looks. Laurie is discovered to have multiple personalities, and could one of her personalities have been the murderer?
I've read many Mary Higgins Clark books, and this is probably one of her best. It left me on the edge of my seat and was so riveting that it took me only two days to read it. I highly recommend this book!

If you like other Mary Higgins Clark books, You'll love this one! Laurie Kenyon was kidnapped at the age of 4. Two years later, her kidnappers left her on the steps of a school building. When she was returned to her parents, she acted shy and afraid of everything, unlike what she used to be. What they didn't know is that she developed Multiple Personality Disorder(MPD). After the death of her parents, Laurie, now a college student, falls in love with Proffesor Allan Grant (or,at least, one of her personalities does). When Allan Grant is murdered, Laurie becomes the main suspect. Lauries sister, Sarah, switches sides of the courtroom and becomes Laurie's defendant attorney. Sarah convinces Laurie to see Justin Donelley, a phyciatrist specializing in MPD patients, to help her. As Laurie unveils all of her personalities and discovers what happens the night Allan Grant was stabbed to death, her kidnappers are closing in on her. And this time they mean murder.... This is my favorite Mary H. Clark book. If you love mystery and suspense, you'll love "All Around The Town".

All Around the Town is just perverted. Not scary, or creepy, just perverted. Plus you don't care much about any of the characters like you do in other MHC books. I couldn't bring myself to care about the girl with different personalities, or her sister, or that doctor with the mustache, or the perverted evangelists (although I guess that would defeat the purpose, eh?) Anyway...I didn't like this one. But maybe you will.

This was the first book of Clark's I ever read. It was very interesting and kept my attention. Laurie was kidnapped as a young girl but later found and returned to her family. Life seemed to go on until in college Laurie was accused of murdering her professor. Her sister, Sarah is an attorney and hires a shrink to help with the case. It is determined that Laurie has schizophrenia, a condition brought on by her experience with her 2 kidnappers. The story is very interesting and suspenseful. Laurie has no recollectoin of the murder, though her fingerprints are everywhere. There are lots of twists and turns with a surprise ending. I'd highly recommend this book.

This book is amazing. I had never been intersested in Mary Higgins Clark, but my boyfriend bought this for me because he got her confused with Danielle Steel. I was kinda disappointed, but when I read the descripition, it sounded pretty good. For the first page I was hooked and could not put it down! I was pleasantly suprised by how interesting the story was. I love this book and would recomend it to anyone!

This book is really great! After reading this book, I start to get more interested in multiple personalities. The story plot is well-written. I loved the part when Laurie is having her therapy, where her different personalities start to appear! This book is full of surprises and Mary Higgins Clark can describe it so well that it's as if you are in the story itself! I bet you would want to read her other books as well after reading this one, just like I do! THREE CHEERS TO THE QUEEN OF SUSPENSE!

I think that Mary Higgins Clark did an awesome job on this story. And even though it is a little disturbing it was a great book and keeps you glued to the pages. If you love a mystery and love the suspense that goes with it than this book is totally what you want to read. For a little info on the book: one of the main characters (Laurie) was kidnapped at age 4 and returned two years but never fully recovered from the abduction. 17 years later she has been diagnosed with multiple personality disorder and is accused of murder, however Laurie has no memory of this but all the signs point to her. The kidnappers come back in her life and try to ruin it but Laurie's sister Sarah is helping her through the whole process and.... well I guess you just have to read it to figure out what happens hope you like it.
