I sneaked this one into the TBR pile so that I could put it into the mystery/thriller bookbox I'm sending round the UK shortly. This was a nice page-turner, with the suspense building up nicely, if a little predictably.
I found myself looking at it from a writer's point of view as well - I was very impressed with the adept way the atmosphere and situation was told very skilfully in the first few pages, but was irritated by the occasional POV jumps from one character and back again.
Still, well worth the read, a nice entertaining evening or two. Thanks for this :-)

Now going in the UK mystery/thriller bookbox.

I have just received this in the UK mystery bookbox set up by loopy1.

I have never read anything written by Mary Higgins Clark. She is one of those authors that hovers on the edge of my peripheral vision (kind of like Margaret Truman did) willing me to try one of her books. I will definitely give in to the temptation now!

I am also registering this book to find out what happens to it once I send the book box out again. If anybody would like this while the book is still in my custody, it will be available for trade (I will replace it with an equivalent mystery book in the box if that should happen).

I will be back!

This is a picture of the author, Mary Higgins Clark.

I read this very quickly as I am kind of going through an insomniac phase at the moment and this novel was very easy reading.

This was my first Mary Higgins Clark book and I have to say I felt slightly let down by the blurb on the cover promising that Stillwatch would be a "chilling" read. Chilling, unfortunately, it was not, at least not for me. The book was written in 1984 and I think, perhaps, that I have just become used to more gruesome fare. The story was intriguing enough to keep me reading to the end, though. There were some good twists and I did not predict exactly how it was going to end, although I was not too far off the mark!!

As I said above, this book will be available for trade until such time as I send the book box out again. Thanks bodesoda and loopy1!

This book was found in the UK mystery/thriller book box (thanks LeighBCD for the special delivery, and to loopy1 for starting this!). I've read this novel some years back when I used to live in Germany, and it's one of the very good ones.
Back to the box, little book :-)

Mary Higgins Clark is associated in my mind with harrowing stories, I think because of instalments I read of 'Where are the Children?', so I shall leave this one in the UK mystery/thriller bookbox.

This book returned to me in the mystery/thriller bookbox, so I offered it up on the UK list, and it was accepted by kleptokitty, so off it goes again :-)

I've read a couple of Mary Higgins Clark books recently & really enjoyed them, so was really pleased to see this one offered up. It will probably end up quite a long way down my TBR pile I'm afraid, as I've a few Rings on the go, but I'll get there eventually!

Started this last night & finnished it this morning. To my mind, that's always a sign on a good thriller!

I enjoyed this one and it kept me hooked to the end, but perhaps not as much as some of the other MHC books I've read recently.

I'll take this along to the forthcoming Hants meet-up & see if it finds a new home there.

It's a fast read, and a good story.

Aquired this book at a Bookcrossing get-together in Winchester.I wouldn't have said that it was "chilling",
as described on the cover, but it was a good read nonetheless.
