Mary Higgins Clark

Mary Higgins Clark is one of those writers that for the longest time I'd managed to miss. I knew the name, but hadn't read anything other than the occasional short story by her. I set out to rectify that earlier this year and started in on a pile of her books.

One of the first ones I read was quite good even though it was somewhat dated. A Cry in the Night was chilling and an enjoyable read. I also really enjoyed reading All Around the Town. Both were excellent examples of the suspense novel. The main character in both novels found herself in frightening situations in which there seemed no way out.

Mary Higgins Clark also seems to explore different themes or twists in each book. A Cry in the Night talks about a woman who gets cut off from help by a husband who has convinced everyone that she's dangerous and going mad. In All Around the Town, the main character is suffering from split personalities because of trauma she experienced as a child.

Reviews of both those books are now posted at Book Help Web.
