A thriller which has it all
on 9 November 2006
Mary Higgins Clark is a fantastic writer who always manages to capture her readers' attention. The only book of hers that has disappointed me a little, was "The Lottery Winner", which I think was not up to usual MHC standard.
"Remember me", however, is a thriller which has it all. Fascinating, intricate and believable plot. A wide range of players at the stage. Excellent characterization. Well researched historical background with detailed information about events having taken place three hundred years ago.
Seemingly a psychological thriller, with heroine Menley's PTSD/madness playing a central part, the pieces of the puzzle are slowly falling into place as the story unfolds. Strange co-incidencies are revealed and reality takes over. The (not so surprising) bad girls and guys are caught, and Menley, her husband Adam and daughter Hannah get their life back and a beautiful house in which to enjoy it.
So, even if I guessed "who did it" a bit before the end, that did not keep me from enjoying every word of this page-turner to the full.
Five stars given, the book is highly recommended and a very talented lady given her due.
