Summary:

At the age of ten, Liza Barton shot her mother in their New Jersey home while trying to protect her from her violent stepfather. Despite her stepfather's claim that the shooting was a deliberate act, the Juvenile Court ruled the death an accident.

Trying to erase every trace of Liza's past, her adoptive parents changed Liza's name to Celia. At the age of twenty-eight, she married a sixty-year-old widower, and they had a son. Before their marriage, Celia confided the secret of her earlier life. On his deathbed, her husband made her swear never to reveal her past to anyone, so that their son would not carry the burden of this family tragedy.

Happily remarried, Celia is shocked when her second husband presents her with a gift-the New Jersey house where she killed her mother. On the day they move in, the words BEWARE -- LITTLE LIZZIE'S PLACE have been painted on the lawn.

Determined to prove that she was the victim of her stepfather's psychotic behavior, Celia sets out to gather the evidence. When the real estate agent who sold the house is brutally murdered she is once again branded a killer. As Celia fights to prove her innocence, she is not aware that her life and the life of her son are in jeopardy.

    Excellant book! I always like Clark but this was the best. It kept me on my toes wondering what may happen next.

    Not one of my favorite Mary Higgins Clark books, but still liked it. A lot of characters to keep track of. A bit too predictable at parts. Had my suspicions from the very beginning, which proved to be correct. I like it better when I can't figure it out!

    I thought this was a very nice book. It was suspenseful, just as I was expecting, and I thought it had a great ending. I would definatley suggest it to anyone who wants a good, clean suspence book.

    This was a good Mary Higgins Clark novel. Although, I guessed the ending, it was still entertaining. If you like her other novels, you will like this one.

    Being my 1st Mary Higgins Clark book, I was pleasantly surprised. It wasn't that bad. My wife is a big fan, and we got several books to listen to while on vacation. We had my niece / nephew in the car with us for a time, and they even got engrossed in the story.

    This was one of those books you get so involved in, you are sorry when it is over. Another great story by Mary Higgins Clark

    This was a great book. I often found it difficult to leave the car and would drive around the block a few times to continue listening.
