Product Description

Review

"On The Street Where You Live is taking a deserved Ms. Clark back to the New York Times Bestseller List" Harriet Klausner, www.im-ur.com " This is a plot-driven novel, with Clark's story mechanics at their peak of complexity..." Publishers Weekly "A compelling, fast read" Pat Kersten, www.theromancereadersconnection.com "Don't expect anything less than a cast of striking, if paranoid players tracking down and being tracked down by a ruthless killer - as well as a snappy, surprise double-edged ending that closes the book with a mystical flourish. Mary Higgins-Clark is obviously here to stay; this is one writer whose name carries an elaborate reputation for producing taut, suspenseful entertainment..." The Daily News, Massachusetts "All of the elements of a Clark nail-biter are here, with a fast-moving plot and neat conclusion." Richmond Times "Clark outdoes herself" Tampa Tribune

Once you've read one Mary Higgins Clark book you're hooked! This latest mystery is an excellent read, with as always, a strong central character, twisting plot, suspense and a hint of romance. The setting (a New Jersey seaside town) is atmospheric and the characters are well drawn. It's one of those books that you just can't put down and when you finish you're craving the next!
Excellent:read it!

I've read a few of Higgins Clark's books and have enjoyed them all immensely. Some of them are a bit predictable, but that is outweighed by Clark's prose - a prose that catches you in its hooks and refuses to release you (or at least me). I like her style of writing and am a long-time fan of suspense stories. I am a voracious reader and have to say that Clark is among the better writers in my library.
In this book, I find it highly believable that Emily trusts the people she does even though one or two of them is destined to betray her. She seems a fairly decent person whose intentions are above-board. Her only problem is that she is in the wrong place at the wrong time. The culprits are not easy to spot, even though the identity of her stalker becomes fairly obvious after a short time. The murderer though, manages to hide until the last few chapters. Knowing who the murderer is does not make the story less tense. In fact I find it enjoyable following Emily's road to discovery.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Defense Attorney Emily Graham left her job in Albany for a better one. She left behind a greedy ex-husband, who had tried to sue her for half the money she made by selling her dot-com stock, and a stalker, who was now in a psychiatric hospital. Emily purchased a Victorian home in Spring Lake, New Jersey that had originally been owned by her ancestors. In fact, her Great, Great, Great Aunt (Madeline Shapley) had disappeared from the front porch in 1891, never to be found. Not too long afterward, two of her friends (Letitia Greg and Ellen Swain) also disappeared, the dates matching.
While digging for a pool to be built, a skeleton was found in Emily's backyard of a young woman who had disappeared only a couple of years ago. Under her grave was another skeleton, of Madeline Shapley! Emily was not to begin working for the law firm that had hired her for awhile, so she began doing some research. At the same time it seemed a copycat stalker was sending Emily gifts. A second young woman had disappeared. The stalker sent Emily a drawn postcard of two tombstones. She and the police used it to find the location of the second missing woman, buried just above the skeleton of Letitia Greg.
The anniversary of Ellen Swain's disappearance was coming up. One more woman was to killed and buried with the century old corpse.
The media was having a field day stating the killer was the reincarnation of the 1891 murderer. How else could he know where the long lost graves were? Most of the town had motives and were suspects. And Emily was getting close to the truth!
***** A Keeper! I never got the correct answer ... and I thought I was so smart. I was proved wrong. This one will keep you glued to your seat throughout the whole book. Don't begin this one until you have plenty of time to read! Highly recommended! *****

This book encompasses the usual intrigue found in this authors stories, however it was greatly enhanced by the fact that the plot links incidents covering a greater time scale.From start to finish the story kept me on the egde of my seat, I found it very hard to put down. The twists in the plot were on going and the climax to the story was not disappointing or predictable. This is definitely the best book I have read by this author to date

I first started reading Mary Higgins Clark when my aunt was in the hospital. She was in there for a long time and did nothing but read, be sick and receive visitors. Her favourite was MHC and since then, I've also been an avid reader of MHC.
I've made the mistake once of buying one of her daughter's books, Carol Higgins Clark. Carol has a very different writing style than her mother and I was disappointed, not because it was badly written, but because I expected Mary's famous mixture of romance, detective work and a hint of the supernatural.
In On The Street Where You Live I was not disappointed. Emily decides to buy a Victorian house in Spring Lake that was once her family home.
The murderer has found the diary of the 1891 murderer that once made Spring Lake unsafe, and starts re-enacting those murders. The body of his murder, as well as the body of a girl who vanished in 1891, is found in the garden of Emily's new home.
As if that isn't enough to make her feel unsafe in what was to be her dream house, the stalker who was arrested some years ago appears to have reappeared in her life.
MHC manages to introduce a multitude of characters in her story, each with their own personality. You are witness of their inner turmoils, which makes the story so much more life-like.
Good read.
