America's "Queen of Suspense" has done it again. "On the Street Where You Live" is excellent. Emily Graham is a criminal defense attorney who moves to the seaside town of Spring Lake, New Jersey, a town filled with beautiful historic Victorian homes. Emily is compelled, without much consideration, to purchase an older Victorian home that belonged to her ancestors. The house hasn't been in her family since 1892 when it was sold after her ancestor Madeline Shapley's mysterious disappearance. As the backyard is being excavated for a swimming pool, the skeletal remains of a young woman are unearthed; they are the remains of Martha Lawrence, a young woman who disappeared in Spring Lake over four years earlier. Strangely, in the young woman's hand is the finger bone of a skeleton that is over one hundred years old, with the ring still on it. The ring is identified as a Shapley family heirloom. Emily's curiosity and determination to solve the murders that existed one hundred years apart is a threat to her well-being. She soon finds that she is being stalked and taunted with photographs of herself, and the town beings to wonder if they are being tortured by the sick mind of a reincarnated killer. The suspense builds and builds eventually leading to an unexpected ending. Clark has crafted yet another masterpiece.

Emily Graham, an attractive young New York City defense attorney in her thirties, is very relieved. She is currently on the path of recovering from her nasty divorce from Gary White, a man she thought was in love with her but was only after her money. She also feels safer, now that Ned Koehler---her stalker who became obsessed with silently terrorizing her by sending her envelopes with photos of herself after Emily won the case for the man Ned believes killed his mother---is finally behind bars. She has a new job working for Walter Todd, a prominent New York attorney, as well. What is more, Emily recently came into ten million dollars when she sold her stocks from her friend Eric Bailey's online stock markets. And using a portion of that money, Emily has purchased the late-Victorian mansion that once belonged to her ancestors, the Shapleys, in the old seaside town of Spring Lake, New Jersey.

But when the landscaping crew begins digging in Emily's backyard for the pool, they make a gruesome discovery: the skeleton of a young woman in her twenties identified as Martha Lawrence, who disappeared four years ago. But the truly shocking part is that clutched in Martha's hand, was a fingerbone with a sapphire ring---an ancient Shapley family heirloom---on it. No one doubts that the fingerbone belongs to nineteen-year-old Madeline Shapley, who mysteriously went missing from Spring Lake in the 1890s, followed by two more young women, Letitia Gregg and Ellen Swain. But things become even worse for Emily, who is thoroughly shook up by this finding, when later that night, she finds an envelope pushed under the door, addressed with her name, and inside a photo of her sitting at the kitchen table. Could Emily's true stalker still be out there somewhere?

I have read many of MHC's novels. This one I must say was sort of a let down. The story involved too many characters, making it hard to follow and easy to forget who all of them were. I didn't think that the ending was all that great, either. Sorry, but this one was just "alright".

I liked this book. It was an easy read and very interesting. I love stories that center around history or historical events and this centers around, what else, murders that happened years ago and are now happening again on the same dates, in the same manner etc. And of course no MHC story would be complete without a little love story, or love triangle, so Clark throws that in as well. This probably would make for an interesting suspense movie, as the general public loves plots like this. I did like this book, but I still love A Cry in the Night and All Around the Town the best.

This was by far the worst book by Mary Higgins Clark and I'm usually a fan of her work. There were way too many characters and they weren't developed enough so you couldn't keep straight who was who and what they had to do with the story. The ending was just plain stupid! The story ended with some of the most important characters on the verge of something important and poof that's that you don't know what happened to them. I closed this book feeling frustrated, disappointed and confused. So confused in fact that I went back and read the last chapter thinking maybe I missed something.....I didn't but I think the author did!

Lawyer Emily Graham has just moved into her ancestral home in a picturesque seaside village when a series of murders begins. And not just any murders: They replicate to the last detail a series of murders that took place there one hundred years ago, and the anniversary of the last killing is this Saturday...who will be next?
Mary Higgins Clark has created a strong heroine in Emily and filled the story with a large cast of suspects that will keep you guessing until the last minute. My favorite chapters were those narrated by the unseen killer, who may be just demented or may be the reincarnation of the original killer.
The frequent comparisons between town life in the Victorian era and the present make me think this would make a lovely and suspenseful film. And the big question (has the original killer been reincarnated?) makes for fun, if creepy, speculation. Heartily recommended.
