Want another book with these charactors in it, Cassie Sheridan, the reporter!
I bought this book to read over the summer while I was vacationing in Florida because I like to read books that take place where I am traveling to. I could not get interested in it at first because it started off so slow and just packed it away for a few months. I just started reading the book again to try to give it another chance and it got to be a page turner after the first few chapters! I wanted to hear more about Vincent, the boy using his metal detector searching the beach and coming across something that would change everyones lives, his little brother that had cystic fibrosis and his hard working single mother, more about Miami for sure, the locals & resturants. This all makes for a more descriptive type of story line that I look for. I like to feel like I can actually feel, smell and sympathize with the charactors. It is one of those books that you wished there was a next book with all the charactors in the same place. I will keep looking for a book written by Mary Jane Clark about Cassie Sheridan in Miami.

fast-paced and gripping suspense thriller
Washington correspondent Cassie Sheridan is on her way to the top with an evening New York based show on the horizon until her career derails. Cassie reported that a serial rapist raped the daughter of the FBI Director. The teenage girl already struggling to cope kills herself when Cassie reveals her exclusive on national TV. Her station exiles Cassie to the Miami Bureau until her contract ends and her career with it. <P>Her husband and daughter sick of her ambition refuse to talk to her adding to her feelings of isolation. Now she is reporting on a coming hurricane when preadolescent Vincent Baylor finds a human hand with a ring on it on the beach. Vincent takes the ring with plans to pawn it knowing his desperate family could use the cash. However, the killer needs that ring and will murder to obtain it. Cassie and Vincent team up in an attempt to identify the culprit, but neither realize they are in the eye of a murderous human hurricane. <P>NOBODY KNOWS is fast-paced and gripping as the suspense builds up while readers wonder if Cassie will overstep her bounds again and what the killer will do. The crisp story line will grab the audience in spite of the Ferris Bueller-like pontificating. The support cast is somewhat stereotyped but likable as the families of Vincent and Cassie are used to evoke emotion from fans and to provide further insight into the lead characters. Though Mary Jane Clark has written a fine novel, the bottom line is Cassie is not likable and this is her tale. <P>Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
