    " Typical Mary Higgins Clark read. Well developed characters, good dialog, suspenseful writing, in an original story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 2/15/2014

    " I read this book for the first time in High School and I have memories of staying up way too late because I could not put it down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trina | 2/15/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rahmadiyanti | 2/6/2014

    " Tokoh-tokoh utama dalam novel Higgins kebanyakan perempuan, dengan segala permasalahan, namun tegak kukuh berlapis baja *halah*. Termasuk novel yang ini. Menurut saya nggak sebagus novel-novel lainnya (kayak Loves Music Loves to Dance, Pretend You don't See Her, dll), tapi menurut teman yang punya anak saat saya bilang novel ini biasa saja: "Kalo elo punya anak, bakal berasa banget deh baca buku ini!". Ugh, komen yang pahit. "

    " Her books are very easy reads when one has nothing else to do but to be entertained for a couple of hours. They are fast page turners that are of a quality better than garden variety. "

    " This was the very FIRST MHC book I read. I was 14 and borrowed it from my aunt. I was hooked and she has been my favorite author every since. I look forward to her newest book every spring and sometimes a little tease with her daughter around Christmas! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurie D'ghent | 12/29/2013

    " Holy fetching crap! Mary Higgins Clark is the BOMB! I literally couldn't put this book down, and I can't even remember the last time that happened. One of the best books ever (and that coming from a confirmed chicken). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Louise H | 12/12/2013

    " So gripping, it disturbed me quite a bit but I couldn't put it down. It's not my usual genre either but I loved this! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 12/10/2013

    " Fun read. A little out of date, but fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 10/22/2013

    " This was typical suspense made famous by this author. I loved all the medical componets and I did notice the spelling of coumodin was wrong. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Edenedits | 10/14/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gena Lott | 3/19/2013

    " This book was so full of twists and turns that it is a wonder I could hold on to it! Just when I thought I finally had the whole thing figured out, Clark showed me that she was the master of the plot and there was nothing to do but race along to the wham-bang conclusion! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joseph | 2/13/2013

    " If I enjoyed mysteries/suspense novels, I would say M.H. Clark is probably one of the best. Unfortunately, I don't, and I'm more entertained by suspense in motion (television) than I am in print. Typical suspense story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 pam | 2/10/2013

    " just one of those good reads by clark. read a long time ago and enjoyed it again. just a good mystery to quickly read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Connie | 11/29/2011

    " This was about Katie, an ADA who saw someone putting a body in the back of a car when she was in the hospital recovering from an accident. It was fast paced and I liked the somewhat small romance behind the scenes between Katie and Richard. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deeann | 10/20/2011

    " great twist at the end "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeff | 9/7/2011

    " Meh. I don't want a murder mystery without the mystery. We're told at the very beginning who did it. Very basic and not much fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison | 8/12/2011

    " I think I've read almost all of Mary Higgins Clark's books. They probably aren't the most educational, but they are a great pleasure read! I enjoyed her earlier books better than some of the later, too predictable; but, I keep reading them. They are always a great, clean, mystery! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 5/8/2011

    " I loved this book. You'll notice in my reviews, I don't tell much other than how much I liked or loved a book and that's because I don't like to give away what the book is about. THIS WAS AN AWESOME READ! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian | 5/3/2011

    " Awesome book. There was never a dull moment. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Garrett | 2/15/2011

    " This pulled me through from beginning to end. I just did not want to put it down.

    It is old, but definitely will remain a classic in my collection. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 La Chipie | 11/26/2010

    " Non mais il fait flipper le docteur! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Giulietta | 11/15/2010

    " Quoto il Killer Mantovano.. la Clark non sarà un'autrice di capolavori, ma scrive per una lettura piacevole e scorrevole, nonchè intrigante!
    Un buon giallo, da ombrellone, da borsetta o da relax. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammy | 10/25/2010

    " Was given this by a friend, so far it is just the type of book I need at the moment, page turning mystery! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bryan | 10/4/2010

    " Better than average mystery, although characters not memorable and predictable end to story a problem. It did keep me interested throughout on what the next move by the murderer would be. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 8/6/2010

    " This is one of the few mysteries that I actually remembered reading because it was so......odd; fascinating; etc.

    Katie is an attorney who is trying to solve a murder or two, while dealing with some health issues. Alough I've read this story before, I still couldn't put it down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 4/18/2010

    " If you have never read this author, take a night and read one of her books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shellie | 4/8/2010

    " a creepy mystery about a baby doctor "
