Nell MacDermott is the politically ambitious granddaughter of a canny politician in Manhattan's silk stocking district, and her grandfather wants her to run for his old congressional seat. But there are rumors that Adam Cauliff, Nell's husband, has been involved in a real estate and construction scam, and until Nell gets to the bottom of this her political future will be clouded. When Adam and his assistant are killed in an explosion aboard his boat, Nell is determined to clear his name. Nudged into action by her nascent psychic powers and a medium who may be her only link to Adam, Nell learns more about her husband's mysterious past than she bargained for and--naturally--stumbles onto a conspiracy that puts her own life in danger. The narrative seems more like an outline for a novel than a novel itself; the characters are sketched rather than fully explored--particularly Nell, whose back story doesn't provide enough information to make her actions understandable. But the pacing is expert, and Clark's dedicated fans will doubtless forgive her for not making this her strongest outing. --Jane Adams --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Although this is not MHC's best work, this book is worth the read. Nell MacDermott is toying with the idea of running for office. Read morePublished on Feb. 6 2003 by "papilionidae"
This isn't Mary Higgins Clark's best, but it's still an entertaining story. Unfortunately, I got the audio version in which the narrator's interpretation of men's voices consists... Read morePublished on July 15 2002 by Diane Davis

I am frankly disgusted with Jan Maxwell's reading of this novel. Her reading is at best whiny and annoying rather than representing the strength of character that the various... Read morePublished on May 20 2002 by Katie F.
