Summary:

In the gripping new novel from America's Queen of Suspense, a young woman is haunted by two murders that arc closely linked -- despite the one hundred and ten years that separate them.

Following the breakup of her marriage and her pursuit by an obsessed stalker, criminal defense attourney Emily Graham accepts an offer to work in a major Manhattan law firm.

Feeling a need for roots, she buys her ancestral home in New Jersey, which her family sold in 1892, after the disappearance of young Madeline Shapley one of Emily's forbears.

Now, more than a century later, as the house is being renovated, the bones of a young woman are found in the backyard. She is identified is Martha Lawrence, who disappeared four years earlier. Cluched in Martha's skeletal hand is the finger bone of another woman with a ring still on it -- a Shapley family heirloom.

When Emily investigates the link between her family's past and the recent murder, she provokes a devious and seductive killer, who selects her as his next victim.

    This was my first M.H-Clark and will likely be my last. Good plot, but the dialog was so lame. I kept thinking "how is it this writer is a best seller?" And an Edgar winner? Pass.

    I was enthralled in this book. I couldn't wait until the next set of disk arrived. Very interesting mystery. I really liked it.

    I cannot tell you how disappointed I was in this book. I usually love Mary Higgins Clark but was left wondering what happened to that 'edge of your seat' and 'can't wait to see what happens next' writing that I'm so used to. In this book it was easy to see what would happen next and I guessed everything before it did. Not very exciting. I loved the idea of Emily delving into a hundred year old murder but it just didn't keep me interested.

    This book has a very slow start. It was interesting but not up to speed with Mary Higgins Clark's previous books. The final scene seemed way too contrived and somewhat predictable.
