    Definitely one of her worst

    I've read almost all of MHC's books and this is by far her worst, in my opinion. None of the characters are very likeable and the nicknames given to the killer and his victims are ridiculous. The ending was a major disappointment. Normally, I enjoy Mary Higgins Clark's work but I really had to force myself to finish this one.

    Used to be a fan, this was AWFUL

    I haven't read MHC for awhile now and was very disappointed to read this book and find that she has succumbed to the laziness and greed of so many successful authors. There was NO character development whatsoever and ridiculous leaps of logic. The characters barely had personalities. The heroine was especially lacking in dimension. And the so-called horrible childhood of these misfits was a joke. 'Boo hoo, my parents fought in public, I'm scarred for life.' What a shame. MHC was such an important voice in this genre but this latest piece of junk reads like it was written by a high school student. I hate it when famous authors insult their fan base like that (Clive Cussler and Stuart Woods are other examples).

    I have read everyone of Mary Higgins Clark's books and even gone to two talks she has given. But I found this book terribly disappointing. There were far too many characters set out in the beginning to keep them all straight. And what high school puts out that many students who end up involved with the movies and TV? But the thing that bothered me the most was that the book wasn't well written at all. There was no even flow to her writing at all.

    A disappointment

    I usually love Mary Higgin Clark novels, but this one was a huge disappointment. The false clues that were continually thrown in our faces were insulting and exhausting. One of the false clues was actually an error. The main character suspects someone she is becoming close to because he supposedly knows something about her past that he shouldn't. Except, the main character had told him this information in a previous chapter. I'd go into more detail, but I don't want to ruin it for someone who still wants to read it. Overall, I thought it was trite and contrived. Skip this one and buy Loves Music, Loves to Dance, Remember Me, The Lottery Winner, or any other her other novels.

    This drivel was incredibly boring. I didn't care who the killer would make his next victim. In fact, he would have done us a service by shutting up the victims from spewing their low rent dialogue.
