From the Back Cover

NO ONE BELIEVED HER SHOCKING STORY
Trying to mix business with pleasure, KEY News correspondent Diane Mayfield has brought her children and her sister to the New Jersey Shore town of Ocean Grove to investigate a story on "girls who cry wolf" for the season premiere of "Hourglass," television's highly rated news magazine.

UNTIL IT HAPPENED AGAIN
Diane lands an exclusive interview with a troubled young woman whose tale of being abducted and held against her will for three terrifying days had been disbelieved by the authorities. No sooner does Diane finish taping the interview, though, than a second victim disappears.

--AND AGAIN
The small community, already in the grip of a record heat wave, is now wracked by fear and terror no one knows who could be next. With only the first victim as eyewitness, Diane and the police turn to her for clues. But it may already be too late to save Diane and her loved ones from the mortal danger that lurks in Ocean Grove.

With a Mary Jane Clark novel, every word is a clue.

"A great summer read, one that draws you in and keeps you reading until the end."
Anniston Star

"Keeps readers on the edoge of their seats haunting and entrancing."
--Romantic Times BOOKclub Magazine

5.0 out of 5 stars Dancing In the Dark 8 Mar. 2016
By Tanya - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Another good mystery in this series. The reporter has to postpone her family's vacation or face losing her job. She is sent to report on a girl gone missing for three days but when she is found no one believes she was kidnapped. The story is about girls that cry wolf. But when another girl goes missing but is found dead it throws a whole net light on the story. Lots if people with motives, but who is the killer.

I found this to be a very slow read and lacking in the suspense department.

2.0 out of 5 stars Spare yourself 24 April 2016

The main character, Diane, was hard to identify with. The entire story was about anorexia and cutting. It was so very overdone.

The ending was quite disappointing and hard to digest. Not Ms. Clark's best.
4.0 out of 5 stars storyteller 20 April 2008

I particulaly enjoyed the history around the Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Area. There were many of these types of camps dating back to the thirties where city people had a chance to get away from the hot summer and live reasonably on the water. I also liked the reference to the old abandoned Casino. Old abandoned places are perfect settings for mysteries. Mary Jane Clark did an excellent job of keeping me on the edge and wanting to read more and more. Diane's decision of job versus family is one that many of us can identify with. The cutting was very interesing but I felt left hanging. All in all I enjoyed this book very much. It's a keeper!
