Format:Hardcover
Don't miss this book!

Mary Higgins Clark fans will be delighted with this nicely told mystery, one of her very best. Families provide lots of drama for most people, and Ms. Clark wisely chooses to add family complications to increase the flavor of this excellent story.

What would you think of your only brother disappeared just before finishing college . . . except to make a brief phone call for Mom on Mother's Day? It's pretty frustrating, suggesting that he doesn't care about you at all. Sis is Carolyn MacKenzie, a bright lawyer whose clerkship has just ended sooner than she expected.

Carolyn decides to push brother Mack to permanently surface. He quickly sends a message to back off . . . but Carolyn is not going to do that. Badly dislocated lives are soon fractured in painful ways.

Other currents are moving swiftly in dark places, and soon there are other mysteries to solve. In the process, you'll meet a lot of vulnerable people with secrets to keep. You'll also meet some pretty questionable types. But who did what?

It's a great mystery premise to think about someone who is missing but stays in touch on Mother's Day. I had a hard time imagining what was behind such behavior.

I also liked the way Ms. Clark developed her characters. Lots of them are interesting, and you'll care about what happens to them.

But I must save my special praise for the mystery: It's hard to solve due to excellent misdirection and lots of subtle clues with multiple potential meanings.

Brava, Ms. Clark!

4.0 out of 5 stars Crisp, clear, and clean writing; a surprising and satisfying plot resolution April 9 2008
By Roy E. Perry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Mary Higgins Clark, America's Queen of Suspense, hasn't lost her touch. In Where Are You Now? she writes a chilling tale of a psychopath stalking his prey on the streets of Manhattan near the SoHo night clubs.

Four women are missing and presumed dead. Also missing for the past ten years, but presumed alive, is Charles "Mack" MacKenzie, Jr., who calls his mother once a year on Mother's Day, telling her he is OK and not to search for him.

Mack's sister Carolyn is frustrated that the NYPD and a private investigator, in spite of their intense efforts, have been unable to solve the mystery of Mack's disappearance. She resolves to find him, and, of course, by doing so, puts her own life in jeopardy.

Is Mack still alive, and if so, what kind of trouble is he in? Is he the serial killer? If not, then who is? And what is Mack's motive for dropping out of sight?

Scattering red herrings along the path, Clark leads us to suspect various candidates as being the shadowy predator of young women. We begin to wonder whom can we trust?

Clark's writing is crisp and clear. Although surprising, the plot resolution is convincing and satisfying; the veteran author ties together all the loose ends. And, as always, her work is admirably clean, without obscenity or profanity.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Missing Person April 8 2008
By Tom S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Years ago, a college student named Charles ("Mack") MacKenzie walked out of his life for no apparent reason. Since then, once a year, he calls his mother to assure her that he's all right, and to ask her not to look for him. Now, Mack's younger sister, Carolyn, has decided to find him. Her search uncovers a lot of old secrets among the people closest to her, and someone is trying to prevent Carolyn from solving the mystery behind her brother's disappearance--by any means necessary....

Once again, Mary Higgins Clark has provided us with a sleek, fascinating thriller that builds to a terrific payoff. I read it in one long sitting, and you'll be tempted to do the same. There's a good reason for her 30-year reign as America's "Queen of Suspense," and WHERE ARE YOU NOW? is ample proof of her extraordinary talent. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars He Calls on Mother's Day April 20 2008
By J. E. Stephens - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you have a free afternoon, this book won't disappoint you. Carolyn's brother disappeared over 10 years ago. He calls his mother once a year on Mother's Day.

Carolyn sees the toll his disappearance is taking on her mother. She also wants to get on with her own life. She tells her brother she is going to find him on his most recent call.

On that same day, a young student disappears while walking home from a club.

Carolyn begins to search for her brother while uncovering many connections to the new disappearance and other cases of missing girls.

This book held my interest. Early on I suspected someone but the connections were a total surprise.

You will enjoy this book. It is as good as early MHJ books.

3.0 out of 5 stars Uneven writing April 20 2008
By AMD24 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have been a MHC fan for the past few years and have slowly been catching up on all her previous efforts.
I finished her more distant and far superior While My Pretty One Sleeps two days before starting her latest.
One of the MHC hallmarks for me is that you are instantly hooked with the first paragraph. This book didn't do that for me. I had to force myself to keep at it.
It didn't really start to gel until 80-100 pages in.
The whole plotline with the father and 9/11 felt forced and added zero to the story line. I can see that maybe she wanted to pay tribute to 9/11 but it just seemed added on.
Also the main character tells her part of the story in first person and that seemed out of place with the rest of the story. As well as her love interest never really seemed to spark with her.
I will say though that the ending was very very good. I didn't see a certain twist coming although I did guess another one from the first chapters.
All and all not her best effort, I would wait for the paperback or take it out from the library, it definitely wasn't worth the $16 I paid.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the usual good book from MHC... April 28 2008
By Labkat - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I love MHC. I have read all of her books and I am a huge fan. I am dissapointed in having to say that this book left me bored to tears. It drug on and on. The premise is good-I highly anticipated reading this book and couldn't wait for it to come out. Once I got started it just became a convoluted mess. Too many characters to follow, which I guess were to be red herrings but all it did was add to confusion. I honestly got bored and couldn't wait to finish...not to find out the ending but just be be put out of my misery. Thankfully, I had a bonus reward and got this book for just a couple of bucks. Buy it used y'all or get it at the library or wait the year and get it in paperback. Trust me...you aren't missing a thing.
