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.”

    Booklist

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

    " This was the perfect vacation mystery read!! LOVED it. It also was fun since it takes place in New Jersey and that's where we spent part of our vacation. :) I like how MHC keeps throwing you out ideas as to what is going on, but so many people look suspicious you'll be fairly surprised at the end.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanna | 11/16/2010

    " This was an O.K. book. It dealt with three murders from the 1890's and a copy cat murderer in the 2000's. It was interesting and kept me guessing as to who the murderer was. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 11/6/2010

    " I'm so stupid! I read the first 200 pages and put it down confident I had determined the killer. I read another book, came back for this one to just "finish it off" and I was wrong, wrong, wrong. Chilly ending! I loved it. "
