Cleverly-constructed mystery thriller
on 18 May 2006
Mary Higgins Clark is a technically excellent writer. "No Place Like Home" starts off with an improbable event, linked to a decades-old murder, linked to heroine Liza Barton, linked to... This is intriguing, page-turning stuff, full of twists and mysteries as the heroine is faced with one trauma and life-threatening situation after another but battles on against adversity. An enjoyable, hard-to-put-down mystery thriller.
Downsides: none, if you like fast-moving thrillers set in small-town America. People who like a wider canvas may find Liza Barton's world a bit parochial.
