Nell MacDermott, the attractive and orphaned granddaughter of popular, legendary Manhattan Congressman Cornelius MacDermott, is suddenly struck with a terrible and life-changing tragedy that involves her husband, Adam Cauliff, an aspiring young architect. Nell and Adam, who have been having some silent marriage difficulties lately, have an awful quarrel---which was all over Nell's desire to follow in her grandfather's footsteps and be a congresswoman, a career Adam has always denied Nell---one morning, a quarrel which ends in Nell telling Adam that he might as well not come home tonight. Later that day, Nell is informed that Adam's boat, the Cornelia II---which Adam was using for an architects' conference that day---has exploded, killing Adam, his assistant Winifred Johnson, a real estate agent named Sam Krause, and a young employee, Jimmy Ryan. Peter Lang, who should also have been on the Cornelia II, was saved by a twist of fate because of a minor road accident he was in, deterring him from the boat conference.

Nell is stunned and deeply saddened by Adam's death, regretful that their last time together had ended in such bitterness on her part. Nell's grandfather, whom everyone calls Mac, attempts to console his beloved granddaughter---who has been in Mac's guardianship since her parents' death, when she was a small girl---though it is awkward, for Mac has always disliked Adam because of Adam's refusal to allow Nell to pursue a career in being a congresswoman. Mac has constantly held secret suspicions about Adam, though he has never openly voiced them to Nell; but Mac now has a gut-feeling that these suspicions of his shall soon turn out to be really true.

Jimmy Ryan's widow Lisa is even more wracked with grief about her kind, sweet, and amiable husband Jimmy's horrible death.

It is SO LONG. Really thick. There's nothing in these characters that makes you care about them. Nell is a rich snob with an annoying grandfather. Her "dead" husband Adam is just a boring snob. Nothing in between suggests Clark's penchant for creating riveting tales of horror. Ultimately a letdown. Check out A Cry in the Night or The Cradle Will Fall instead.

I have been reading all sorts of reviews about mary higgins clarks books and I can't believe my ears. I have loved absolutely everyone of her books and for people to say that it was a good plot but a horrible story is absurd! I would definitly have to recommend a head examine for all of those who think so. For the newest mary fans I would really like to say I hope you enjoy them as much as i do and that i have a couple of book of hers that I would highly like to recommend... While my Pretty One Sleeps, Silent Night, Moonlight Becomes You and Pretend you don't see her!

This was a great read. I enjoyed it throughly. Ms. Clark developes wonderful characters, and she uses them to masterfully keep you guessing to the end. Like most of Ms. Clark's novels this story has a surprise ending that won't dissapoint.
After reading this book I felt as is I was looking for something more in the end, and it would be easy enough to spin a sequel from the open ending. That just isn't Ms. Clark's style however. Even with an ending that I felt left too many loose ends, I didn't come away from this read with any true dissapointment. I would definitely recommend this novel to any reader looking for suspense.

On the morning of Friday June 9th, Nell McDermott and her architect husband Adam Cauliff part on bad terms after an argument about her burgeoning political career. However, soon Nell will come to regret the tone of this parting, as later that day Adam's boat will explode, with he and three others on board. Soon, it will emerge that the explosion was caused by a bomb, and Nell, over the coming days, will find herself in the thick of a construction scandal threatening to blow sky-high. But who wanted who dead? Was Adam the target, or one o the others? And why? And did all the others really die, or did one manage to escape in time?
Wracked with guilt, Nell attempts to unravel the threads of Adam's life and quickly discovers a great deal about him that she never knew, and wishes she never discovered. She becomes even more disturbed when, after encouragement form her aunt, she goes to visit a medium in an attempt to gain some closure, and the medium seems shockingly insightful...
Mary Higgins Clark is okay. And that's really the extent of my opinion on the subject. This book, like the others of hers that I have read (all two of 'em) is a decent enough read to take you away or a day or so. Her plotting is good (if sometimes pushing against the boundaries of reason) and her pacing is excellent. The books move quickly, with short chapters, form scene to telling scene in a way that is well structured and thought out. There are twists throughout, and a nice level of suspense right up to the tense climax. The writing style is also good, with well-written, easy to digest prose, but it never reaches very deeply, remaining mostly floating on the surface of the plot. The same is true o her character development.
