Mary, how do you keep doing it?

Just like all her previous novels, I was floored at how several strings of plot that seemed to have nothing to do with each other all ended up fitting together like puzzle pieces at the end. Her characters are top-notch, as usual, and she just tells a great, fast-paced...
Just like all her previous novels, I was floored at how several strings of plot that seemed to have nothing to do with each other all ended up fitting together like puzzle pieces at the end. Her characters are top-notch, as usual, and she just tells a great, fast-paced story. I won't say anymore in case of spoilers, but if you're a fan, just read it!

I have to disagree w. previous reviewers and say that I couldnt get thru this book. The storyline centers around the Gregg Aldrichs who is accused of murdering his wife and the life of the prosecutor who has a stalker she is unaware of~Sounds great but the book doesnt deliver! Too many unbelievable storylines,characters, and details that fill the book unneccesarily (such as the emergence of a donor's memories in the recipient of a heart transplant). I jumped around to see the outcome, realizing how the climax left you hanging w/ an unbelievable silly ending...The court room drama is completely different style for the author and I hope she doesnt continue to write these types of books~I want the old Mary Higgins Clark writing style back-just a great who-dunnit

    more from this reviewer

    I've read this story before

    The plot of this book sounds very similar to Dean Koontz's "Your Heart Belongs to ME". In his book, a heart transplant patient believes he is being haunted by his donor. I usually love MHC but it seems strange she would have this come out so soon after the Koontz book.

    Certainly not her best. Am I the only one who thinks Natalie was shot in the chest? What's with the heart transplant? Early books were much better - she needs to retire.

    Plot loose- writing simple- disappointing after returning to her books after many years.
