Product Description

"I TOLD YOU NOT TO COME..."
Slipped under the door of her Georgetown home, the note was an ominous reminder of Pat Traymore's past. The beautiful young television journalist had come to glamorous, high-powered Washington to produce a TV series. Her subject: Senator Abigail Jennings, slated for nomination as the first woman vice president of the United States.
With the help of an old flame, Congresman Sam Kingsley, Pat delves into Abigail's life, only to turn up horrifying facts that threaten to destroy senator's reputation and her career. Worse still, sinister connections to Pat's own childhood and the nightmare secrets hidden within are surfacing -- secrets waiting to destroy her.

4.0 out of 5 stars Betrayal.... Sept. 17 2000
By "juj"
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It hurts to be betrayed, especially by those people whom you trust most. This is the case for both Patricia/Kerry & yes, even Abigail Jennings. For Patricia, it's her grandmother & aunt/adoptive mom concealing the truth about her parent's relationship. They have the most genuine concern & her interest at heart but hiding the truth & telling something otherwise hurts more. Likewise with Abigail, she may not be an angel nor a saint but she believed (rather chose to believe) lies told to her by her most trusted personnel & that got her into deeper trouble. Again, Toby did (& earnestly believed) what he had to do for Abby's sake (& his as well) but the truest intention when coupled with the wrong means tends to backfire.
I applaud the author's style of molding the characters in the story. Not one individual was 100% evil nor saint. Even our antagonists have a heart. They had the noblest intentions but just got lost somewhere along the way.
This story also awakened a belief taught to me by my mother when I was still a kid & that is 'You'll never succeed if you don't acknowledge where you came from'. Admit it, not everyone is born with a silver spoon in his or her mouth. Most of the time, we have to claw our way up. But we should always remember our past, our beginnings. We should not deny & hide it because we are afraid that we will not be accepted by society if they come to know about our background. Instead, we should make this our inspiration & driving force. & if we do succeed, the more we should acknowledge it to set as an example to others who are still trying to find their way up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stillwatch Oct. 7 2002
By Amber
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Stillwatch, was an exciting book to read. I enjoyed reading this book because the constant events kept my attention. Throughout the book, the main character, Pat Traymore, goes one on one with somone who doesn't wish for her to bring out old memories about the senator's past life. The amount of dedication this person goes through to prevent any information from being accessed by the public is outstanding. Other books I have read don't add up to half that of Stillwatch. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that likes detective novels or mysteries. I had my own opinion of who was involved with trying to stop Pat, but the book fooled me and I learned that who I thought was the perpetrator actually had no actual importance part in the book. This book was one of the best books I have read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stillwatch is a Mary Higgins Clark masterpiece. June 23 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have read practically all of Mary Higgins Clark's novels, but "Stillwatch" is, by far, my favorite. I love the imagery and the character development. The weaving of the characters into each other's lives emphasizes the cliche, "It's a Small World." I actually own this novel as a part of the three-novel collection including "Weep No More My Lady," and "A Cry in the Night." I find myself pulling this book of the shelf time after time, and skipping the other two novels because I think that "Stillwatch" truly displays Clark's mastery as an excellent storyteller. To all who read the reviews before picking up the book, "Stillwatch" is a definite must, to past, present, and future Mary Higgins Clark fans. BRAVO!

5.0 out of 5 stars stillwatch is a really good book. Feb. 25 2000
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Pat Traymore, a reporter doing a special program glorifying Senator Jennings, is a young women whose leg was shattered when she was thrown against the fireplace the night her father killed her mother, then committed suicide. She moves back to the house where the murder-suicide occurred to try to uncover her past. While trying to complete the special, a series of odd events endanger Pat's life. The only way she can survive is if she can remember exactly what happened the night her parents died. Who murdered whom? Was it her distant father? Or was it her talented mother? This book is best suited for women ages 12-60. I enjoyed this book greatly because it was a suspenseful murder-mystery. I would give this book a five star rating.

1.0 out of 5 stars Deeply Dissapointed... Jan. 5 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was so excited to finally read a Mary Higgins Clark novel. I had heard wonderful things so I bought this novel with high hopes and was deeply, deeply dissapointed.
The plot was dull. The love story was not romantic. There was no suspense. I am easy to scare yet this book didn't arouse any fright. The mystery was entirely too easy to figure out. I actually was laughing towards the end of the book because it was so bad. I couldn't believe I had spent money on this dull novel.
Seriously, don't waste your time or your money. Maybe Clark has some other great books, but this one was not one of the good ones. Too bad I read this one first. Now Clark is ruined for me. I doubt I'll try this author again.

I am a big fan of Mary Higgins Clark books, but this one just didn't hit the spot. It dragged in parts of the books, that made me just skip to a different chapter. Read more

I was surprised to find the "occult" as well as "accepted adultery" in this Clark novel. It was not as captivating as most of her novels. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Brain candy
This is a fun thriller but certainly not intellectually stimulating. Some of the dialogue and plot twists are horribly cliched.
