A Stranger Is Watching by Mary Higgins Clark

Ronald Thompson knows he never killed Nina Peterson... yet in two days the state of Connecticut will take his life, having found him guilty via due process of law. But Thompson's death will not stop the pain and anger of Nina's husband, Steve. Thompson's death will not still the fears of Nna's six-year-old son, Neil, witness to his mother's brutal slaying. Not even the love and friendship of Sharon Martin, a journalist who is slowly becoming a part of their world, will ever erase their bitter memories. Only time, perhaps, will heal their wounds. But in the shadows a stranger waits, a cunning psychopath who has killed before, who has unfinished business at the Peterson home...

Classic MHC. A teenager wrongly convicted of a woman's murder, waiting on death row for his execution in a few days. A grieving widower and son, seeking closure and healing. A psychotic killer who has never been traced to five unsolved murders. Well-written, entertaining, nail-biting.

Ronald Thompson is about to face the death penalty for a murder he says he didn¿t commit. Steve Peterson is on television supporting the murder while his new love, Sharon Martin, is protesting it. A few years ago Steve¿s wife was murdered by Ronald Thompson and his son witnessed it. I think he is just supporting the murder because he is still in pain from it, so he wants him to feel pain. That evening, a man kidnapped Neil and Sharon while Steve is out. He hides them out in an abandoned room in the Grand Central Station. A bomb is planted in the room that will kill anyone in the train station. Will Steve save Neil and Sharon before the bomb goes off? Will Ronald Thompson be executed? Is he even guilty? All of this happens in the story of A Stranger is Watching by Mary Higgins Clark. The best-selling author¿s book takes place in the early 70s. There is not much told about the guy who kidnapped Neil and Sharon. I feel that the book was on and off. What I mean by that is that some parts you would not want to put the book down and at others you wouldn¿t even want to move to the next line. The book to me is not very consistent with its suspense. This book is making the readers feel sorry for Neil because he has very bad asthma and gets several asthma attacks throughout the movie. Clark also makes you feel bad for a kid who was 17 when he committed the crime get the death penalty put on him. This story was written in the 70s, so it was different in how hey look for people now then they did then. Now we have all these machines, computers, and cell phones to help us out when back then all they had was to solve the case by good detective work. I thought the book was fairly good. I would give it 7 out of 10. I thought it could have used a little more suspense to keep the readers on their toes and not wanting to put the book down. I also felt that the ending went a little to fast a she put it into too little of words. I think Clark could have put it into more details, so that I could understand the surrounding a little more. Other than that I thought the book was a good story teller and if I had the chance I would read it all over again. I would recommend this to anybody who likes murder stories.

I would like to be an avid reader some day; for now I'm just a wannabe. Before this book, the fastest I ever read a book was two weeks (Daddy's Little Girl, MHC), because I tend to have troule keeping interest in a book. However, I thought this book was wonderfully suspensful and I enjoyed the characters -- I finished it in three sittings.

My friend chose this book for her summer reading in 9th grade. She recommended the book to me when she was done. I started reading and at first was confused by the jumpy scenes but I got in to it. It was good and caught my attention. I love MHC and have read several other books of her since then. But not all her books grab me at first (or at all) This is a very good book!

I always have hated reading and have read the Box Car Children up until right before 6th grade. Then my friend handed be this book and told me try this i think you'll like it. It took me almost 2 months to read this intire book but i kept at it. I don't have a disability in reading i just don't like it. Well i read this book and WOW it was so awsome!! I have been reading Mary Higgins Clark books since then and other adult books! I am so happy to be far away from those box car children. YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK IT'S SO EXCITING!
