In this gripping novel from American’s Queen of Suspense, a young woman is haunted by two murders that are closely linked—despite the 110 years that separate them.

Following the breakup of her marriage and her pursuit by an obsessed stalker, criminal defense attorney Emily Graham accepts an offer to work in a major Manhattan law firm. Feeling a need for roots, she buys her ancestral home in New Jersey, which her family sold in 1892, after the disappearance of young Madeline Shapley, one of Emily’s forebears.

Now, more than a century later, as the house is being renovated, the bones of a young woman are found in the backyard. She is identified as Martha Lawrence, who disappeared four years earlier. Clutched in Martha’s skeletal hand is the finger bone of another woman with a ring still on it—a Shapley family heirloom.

When Emily investigates the link between her family’s past and the recent murder, she provokes a devious and seductive killer, who selects her as his next victim.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Clark’s prose…takes readers where they want to go—deep into an old-fashioned tale of a damsel in delicious distress.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “The cleverly complex plot gallops along at a great clip, the little background details are au courant, and the identities of both murderers come as an enjoyable surprise. On the Street Where You Live just may be Clark’s best in years.” 

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “Mary Higgins Clark is at her hair-raising best with On the Street Where You Live; after more than twenty-five years in the biz, Clark’s plotting remains fresh and original, and her prose is still sharp as a knife. Chilling, engrossing, and genuinely enjoyable, On the Street Where You Live shows that the Queen of Suspense continues to work with the deftness and grace of a true master of the form.” 

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “A suspenseful page-turner that will delight her many fans.” 


  • “A highly entertaining thriller that just might provoke you to view your friends and family in a more speculative light.” 


  • A #1 New York Times Bestseller

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Samantha | 2/17/2014

    " All of her books are the same- but they are intense, fast reads and I like them. For the most part, if you like one of her books you'll like them all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Tatiana | 2/15/2014

    " Scary, so not recommended if you are a light sleeper and like to read before bed! But not gory - more emotionally scary. Well written and keeps you guessing. Takes place in Spring Lake, NJ, so was fun as we were in midst of moving to Old Bridge, NJ "

    " I was in the mood for something different so I thought I would try a Mary Higgins Clark Book. I haven't read her in a loooong time. I really enjoyed her older books like "Where are the Children?" but I found this one to just be ok. I couldn't believe how stupid the heroine was to insist on stayin home alone when she knew a killer was going to strike shortly. I wasn't overly surprised by who the killer was either. Nice change from what I had been reading but not a riveting read. "
