She knows that the nightmare is beginning again....


My Comments:

Where does one start with the “queen of suspense”? I suppose at the very beginning would be a good place...

Where Are The Children? is Mary Higgins Clark’s debut suspense thriller, originally published in 1975, and the first book I read from her. I didn’t actually get to it until about the mid 80s, and by then she’d released a few more That suited me fine because I really enjoyed her writing style and was eager for more.

In my opinion, this is one of Clark’s best novels and the perfect one to start with if you’ve never read anything by her. The tension builds up quickly in this highly-suspenseful story that you won’t want to put down. You’ll want those children to be found so badly...but will they?

Read the book and find out.
