Having been a LOOOOOONG time fan of Mary Higgins Clark, I bought her new book without even reading the synopsis (actually still hadn't until I was doing this blog entry). It was a pleasant surprise to see that Alvirah Meehan, a recurring character in Mary Higgins Clark's books - whose debut was in Weep No More, My Lady but more famously, The Lottery Winner - was also a character. However, unlike most of the 'Alvirah and Willy' books, she wasn't a MAIN character and I was okay with that as she tends to be a bit over the top.

In typical Mary Higgins Clark fashion, this book kicked off with a bang and kept going with each and every turn of the page. Immediately, as with all 'who-done-it' books, you pick the most odvious of characters and the 'bad' guy but her writing style nevers lets you rest on that... maybe is becomes predictable that your first guess is rarely right but she has been known to throw enough curveballs in that you just never know. Switching from one 'bad' guy to another, wondering if she did it or didn't do it, really made this book a page-turner!

As a parent, if I had read the synopsis of this book, I would have been concerned about the whole kidnap and murder plot as I don't really like reading about young kids in distress (to close to home) so I was happy that the murder ...

... SPOILER ...

...wasn't of her child. In fact, it was nice to see/hear from Matthew a few times throughout the novel. (breathing sigh of relief)

... END SPOILER ...

Overall, another must-read by the queen of suspense.

Format: Hardcover
"I lie awake,
And am like a sparrow alone on the housetop." -- Psalm 102:7 (NKJV)

The book's jacket copy is an artful and unusually good introduction to this book. I couldn't do nearly as well. Read it.

What if someone tried to destroy your life by framing you for a horrible crime that you didn't commit, a crime that would cause everyone to detest you? If you already felt guilty for having made mistakes, no doubt the accusations would be devastating. That's the basis of the suspense and the sympathy that most readers will feel for Alexandra "Zan" Moreland, the book's heroine, whose son was kidnapped two years earlier than the book's beginning.

Two of the strengths of this book are that the pacing is relatively fast and involving a large number of narrators allows for quick splices of perspective that keep the story from dragging as the suspense builds. I know how hard it is to write a novel that's relatively strong in both dimensions, and admired the skill displayed.

One of the book's weaknesses is that it's much too easy to figure out who the villain is.

Another serious weakness is that a number of the minor characters aren't developed enough to make them fully understandable and interesting. Having the characters was necessary for the plot to work, but you won't be engaged by them.

There's also a missed opportunity to put the heroine into more personal peril . . . rather than great anguish. I recently listened to a narration of Cara Black's Murder in the Palais Royal, which also deals with a frame-up and the physical threats in that book made the story much more lively and exciting.

So what's the right star rating? I think it's about 3.5 . . . and I rounded up.

Guard your identity!

Did not ever suspect the real villain in this one until the last pages...reminiscent of early Mary Higgins Clark style
