Product Description

Review

Praise for Mary Higgins Clark's The Lost Years:

“Once again Mary Higgins Clark affirms why she is the ‘Queen of Suspense’… Ms. Clark has another winner for her readers to enjoy getting us there with this entertaining taut tale in which the suspense spins from family violence to biblical archeological violence.” --Mystery Gazette

“At once a breathless murder mystery and a hunt for what may be the most precious religious and archeological treasure of all time.” --BookReporter.com

"Clark, known rightly as the queen of suspense, performs her usual magic…An intriguing blend of religious history and contemporary mystery, “The Lost Years” confirms Clark’s status as a writer who is willing and able to bend her formula – and to do so successfully—to address topics not often found in the genre.” --Richmond Times Dispatch

“If you’re someone who enjoys sharing novels with others, though, beware: lend this book and you may never get it back. That’s because, for mystery fans, ‘The Lost Years’ is truly a keeper.” --Pittsburgh Tribune

From the Inside Flap

(back cover)
"The real usefulness of . . . 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die, is that it provides good ideas for DVD rentals. I have, by the way, seen 943 of the 1001 movies, and am carefully rationing the remaining titles to prolong my life."
--Roger Ebert

"1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die is . . . a great motivating guide to cinema. After reading one of its engaging, often profound entries on a missed film, you want to run out and rent it."
--Dallas Morning News

"Schneider and his team . . . explain why each film is a must see. Schneider's choices are irrefutable."
--Library Journal

I did enjoy reading this book. It wasn't as good as her other books, it dragged in places and it didn't keep me up all night reading. I figured out who the killer was about half way through which I never used to be able to do in a Mary Higgins Clark book. I thought she did a great job describing a person with Alzheimers. As someone who works in a nursing home with people who have various forms of dementia I have seen residents act out in ways similar to Kathleen and then just as quickly revert back to being calm and quiet in minutes as though the outburst never happened. Alvirah and Willy make an appearance, they were good at the beginning of the book but got a bit annoying as the book went on since there's no way the police would ever let a private citizen get as involved in a criminal investigation as she did. But still it was enjoyable and helped to pass the time however it was easy to put it down and go do something else so it wasn't one of her best.

MHC needs to stay in her own realm and not capitalize on deVinci codes success. I'm disappointed that I won't be reading another Mary Higgins Clark this year. I'll have to wait another year to see if she can deliver another classic MHC.

This is my favourite mystery writer. I have not read this novel yet but all of the rest of hers I have. She writes an excellent mystery and keeps my attention from page 1 to the end.

it was really interesting cause you could never guess who had killed; you knew it was not the mother although it looked like her but you suspected everyone else till the end....

Thoroughtly enjoyed The Lost Years with all its twists and turns. Just when I thought I had solved the murder - I was thrown a new twist.
One of the things I've always enjoyed about her writings.
Would highly recommend to all Mary Higgins Clark fans and to any one looking for a great mystery writer.

By Carolyn N. on May 17 2013
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Disappointing plot - few surprises and an obvious villain. Not at all a "keep turning pages because I can't put it down" book that one expects from Mary Higgins Clark. Neither Alvirah and Willy's nor Mariah's roles in the story were well-developed.
