At the age of ten, Liza Barton shot her mother in their New Jersey home while trying to protect her from her violent stepfather. Despite her stepfather's claim that the shooting was a deliberate act, the Juvenile Court ruled the death an accident.


Trying to erase every trace of Liza's past, her adoptive parents changed Liza's name to Celia. At the age of twenty-eight, she married a sixty-year-old widower, and they had a son. Before their marriage, Celia confided the secret of her earlier life. On his deathbed, her husband made her swear never to reveal her past to anyone, so that their son would not carry the burden of this family tragedy.

Happily remarried, Celia is shocked when her second husband presents her with a gift- the New Jersey house where she killed her mother. On the day they move in, the words BEWARE-LITTLE LIZZIE'S PLACE have been painted on the lawn.

Determined to prove that she was the victim of her stepfather's psychotic behavior, Celia sets out to gather the evidence. When the real estate agent who sold the house is brutally murdered she is once again branded a killer. As Celia fights to prove her innocence, she is not aware that her life and the life of her son are in jeopardy.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Mary Higgins Clark’s awesome gift for storytelling has always been the secret of her strength as a suspense novelist. But let’s credit her as well for something more subtle—her intuitive grasp of the anxieties of everyday life that can spiral into full-blown terror. In the deliciously titled No Place Like Home, this canny writer taps into the tensions that go along with the joys of moving into a new home and comes up with a cunning variation on the haunted-house theme.” 

    New York Times

  • “With sympathy and strength, Jan Maxwell steadily builds the fearful and dangerous path Celia follows to the truth, exposing the sham of her life and the identity of a new killer. This is a standard Higgins Clark formula, but a solid production and tempo offer a hefty helping of chills.” 


  • “A gripping seat-of-your-pants thriller…The intrigue begins on the first page, and the suspense builds rapidly…This is Higgins Clark at her best, a true mystery to satisfy the most ardent fans of the genre.”

    " Sometimes I find Mary Higgins Clark a bit scary. This one was a little bit but it had a lot of twists and turns as Clark's stories usually are. I was surprised at the ending. All in all it was an enjoyable read. "

    " another novel where the hero/ine is able to solve five crimes, protect themselves, and their most beloved and manage to overcome their greatest fea, all in the space of 2 weeks by thinking poorly and relying solely on serendipity. It was still entertaining, just no charachter development. "
