A good story--will hold your interest throughout

This is a good mystery, written by Mary Higgins Clark, who is certainly one of the greats in this genre. This story is about a set of twins who are kidnapped, but only one gets rescued, leading to interesting plot developments that arise partly out of the mother's trust that the safe twin can feel what the other is going through and keep hope alive for finding her. Mostly it is unremarkable in other ways, a bit predictable on most levels.

However, what made it greatly interesting to me is that it was sort of a story about how often people see things or have encounters that leave them briefly wondering, then quickly dismiss them as unimportant. This entire book seemed to be circling around the numerous ways alert people misread signals and situations, passed off important clues as trivial events. It is a reminder, especially in these times, that we all probably should be more aware of what seems odd or suspicious, and not ignore unusual things we observe. That appeared to be a central part of this story--things happening that people chose to interpret as innocent events, thus prolonging the crisis.

MHC is an excellent mystery writer. I thought the narrator got off to a bad start, but quickly improved, making the book an overall good listening experience.

Good Story Line, But...

I had heard of Mary Higgins Clark before, but this is my first read/listen to one of her books. I have to say I was disappointed. For such a popular and accomplished author, I found her writing to be sub-par. So, although the plot was interesting and the book suspenseful, I can't help but thinking that the novel would have been much better if the story line was taken and written by a different author.

The narrator was not great. However, in my listening experience, female narrators seldom are. There have been a few female narrators that I've listened to that were outstanding, but not many. (By the way, my wife feels the same way on this.)

Now I've probably got not only all MHC fans upset with me, but all women, too. Sorry about that, but I'm just sharing my honest opinions.
