"I TOLD YOU NOT TO COME..."
Slipped under the door of her Georgetown home, the note was an ominous reminder of Pat Traymore's past. The beautiful young television journalist had come to glamorous, high-powered Washington to produce a TV series. Her subject: Senator Abigail Jennings, slated for nomination as the first woman vice president of the United States.
With the help o...more
Pat Traymore is the protagonist, a newswoman with a new job in Washington D.C. Her parents had died violent deaths there when she was a chil...more
During Camelot (The Kennedy years for those of you going..huh?), there was a young and attractive Senator, his beautiful wife and little daughter. They appeared to have the world at their feet, until the unthinkable happened, and two parents died in a scandal, their little girl broken and expected to follow them to the grave.
Years later, an i...more
Mary Higgins Clark has done it again! "Stillwatch" is a novel that focuses on the life of Patricia Traymore . Pat is hired to put together a documentary on Congresswoman Abbigail Jennings. Pat moves into the home of her birth parents and is looking through her father's information to find out more about them. Pat barely gets settled into the house when she receives a threatening note written..."I told you not to come." Pat literally ignores the note and begin...more
The characters lack some quirks and some spirit. They're not really that unique and they're certainly not gonna stay with me for a very long time, as is the case with all her books. I'm pretty certain I'm gonna forget what the book was all about in a while. Also, calling Clark's 'The Queen of Suspense' se...more
The premise is interesting: it starts with Patricia Traymore (apparently this is part of a series), as she moves to Washington D.C to do a documentary on a potential female Vice-President: Congresswomen Abigail Jennings. However, while it takes place (the novel spans one week), she receives threats that escalate in nature.
This book is genuinely exciting. It re...more
The story line was good, but the writing and the characters just didn't do it. When MHC was describing people who had money, I noticed they were all beautiful, but when she was describing people who didn't, n...more
Ah, Washington. The hustle, the bustle, and the scandals. With threats coming in over her program over Jennings, and the terrors of her past arising, it'll be a miracle if she makes it out alive.
Let me start off by saying that Mary Higgins Clark is a fa...more
If you pick this book apart from a literary or grammatical standpoint, you could probably find things wrong with it that I don't give a fig about. I started this yesterday morning, and couldn't go to bed without finishing it. This book was just fun to read. There were plenty of twists and turns to keep me on the edge, and it managed to create an entertaining, but not too complicated, picture of Washington D.C.
I've always loved Mary Higgins Clark; she was called the Queen of Suspense before writ...more
Interesting side note: When I took this book off of the shelf I discovered that it had belonged to a friend of Navarro County and Texas...."Mrs. Aurhter Keeney" was stampe...more
A number of different plots finding a solution right at the end of the final pages. What more can I ask?
To explain the plot would spoil the ending for any wishing to read this for themselves. This copy was a lucky find in a charity shop. If you find a copy for yourself, just enjoy the ride.
You will see that not all my MHC reviews will be in depth as there's not much to say, and I would be repeating myself. But if you like the good ol who done it with a touch of romance thrown in then this is the book for you.
