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

"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."
"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."

She did a lot of research that she mixed with fiction. The book’s beginning seemed like historical fiction. The plot wasn’t extraordinary despite some twists and turns at the end of the book. The book hooked me just at the last 50 pages. I found the main personage Mariah interesting. But some other characters were not well enough developed.
The pace was too slow during the first hundred pages. I felt like I was wasting my time. I was tempted to put down the book many times. In fact, I guessed the murderer’s identity way before I finished the book. It never happened before in her previous books that I’ve read. I continued the reading just to confirm my suspicions. It was a disappointment because the intrigue took too long to get started. I am dissatisfied with this book thus I am not recommending it. I give this book 2 out 5 stars.
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.
