MJC knows how to catch her readers' attention - and keeps it. Another novel with a spine-tingling twist and lots of misleading clues, here's a good mystery if you want one. This is another one of her novels where the heroine is a KEY news broadcast journalist. I always enjoy reading about them, all of them have family issues due to their work. Just when Cassie thought she could spend time with her daughter, to somehow fix their broken ties, she gets an assignment and so, mother-daughter-day gone ...more

This is the fifth in the Key News series, and once again Cassie is covering breaking news. This time, however, she is in Miami, having been temporarily reassigned (or should we say "banished") pending the outcome of a law suit against her and her News show. Stuck with covering less important news stories, she is sent to Sarasota to report on the possible hurricane heading in that direction. She finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery, coming to light when a little boy finds a severed han ...more

This book had some moments of goodness but just couldn't hold my attention...

Another "couldn't put it down" page turner from MaryJane Clark. Just when I think I've figured it out, I realize I'm wrong. Just the right amount of characters with interesting back stories. The friendship between young Vincent and the aged Gideon was heartwarming even if a little off-balance at times. Good amount of heart in this one.
Off to the library for another MJC book!

This was the fourth book I've read by Clark and my least favorite so far. It felt like a LOT of set-up in the beginning with not much action. The whodunit did surprise me, but the climax seemed somewhat rushed and lackluster. I did really enjoy the short chapters, bouncing between characters. That made it a really quick read!
Mar 23, 2016 Marianne rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
Neighbor gave this book to me. Not a very good book IMO. It lacked a certain cohesiveness. With each new chapter I felt jerked around, like where am I now, and who are these people.
Clark did bring it all together in the end, but getting there felt disjointed, like the news shows I watch every evening.

This was a good mystery, maybe not quite a 5 star, but more than a 4. There were several people I thought were the bad guy, so it kept me guessing. The story begins with a poor boy finding a severed hand with a valuable ring on it. You go through a reporter and a hurricane as well. I liked it.

I had never heard of Mary Jane Clark. I really enjoyed her book, and if anyone likes thrillers, this was a good one. It kept me interested, and I finished it in a day and a half. I would like to read some of her previous books.

Not a bad read at all. Love Vincent he is quite the little trouble seeker. Cassie you root for. The plot was great, I kept thinking I knew who it was to find out that was a little detour to who it really was. Well written

Mary Jane Behrends Clark, HB-B @ 2002, 8/02. A little boy with a metal detector finds a woman's severed hand on a beach, and a fast approaching hurricane are the elements of this thriller. Very good...give me more!!

A good mystery. I liked the story of Cassie. I also liked Vincent in the story as well as some of the other characters. The story kept me guessing. I could have done without the adult entertainment part though.
Heather Leach
I very much enjoyed every twist and turn in this engaging story. And now that I see this book is part of a series, I am excited to look for the other books in the series.
May 11, 2014 Jenn rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
This book was exciting and intriguing. There were some really likeable characters and some despicable ones. I just love MJCs books. She always keeps me guessing on who the bad guy is. As usual I didn't figure it out and I love that's. This is one of my favorite series.

Zaujímavé a napínavé čítanie. Na môj vkus tam bolo až príliš veľa náhod a zhôd okolností, ale bavil som sa. Taká jednohubka na dovolenku :-). Po rokoch som sa ku knihe vrátil.

Not aware this book was in a series, it got it at a yard sale. Was a really good book definitely going to read the rest of the series.

I love that the author sets up so many suspects. I rarely guess who the killer is in her books!

Just a good old fashioned murder mystery.
As the mother of a child with special needs, I liked that one of the heroes of the story was an 11 year-old boy with a sibling with special needs (cystic fibrosis). I felt that Clark captured the feelings of responsibility and resentment that such kids experience.

The writing itself is nothing special, but the book is fast-paced and it's fun to have a look the inner workings of TV news organizations. (The main character is a newscaster reduced to reporting on hurricanes in Sarasota.)

Though the beginning was a little slow and confusing, the book as a whole turned out to be super interesting, and I found myself lost in it quite a bit. The mystery and secrets make it super enticing! I loved how I could relate to the book's setting so well speaking that I vacation several times a year in Sarasota and Siesta Key. The book really tied together, and it totally made sense in the end. I would say it was very well executed.

This is a new author for me - the summary on the back of the book sounded promising and I WAS NOT disappointed! Wow, what an excellent mystery. There were so many people who I thought could've been the do-er, what a shock at the end at who had really done-it. And there were a couple of mysteries going on at the same time. I loved the charecters, the setting, everything. Can't wait to get my hand on more by M J Clark :D
Took a break from Kavalier and Clay for a quick dip into this book (K&C is great by the way, but I was really tired and could concentrate on all the details!) This was just the ticket for a little breather, a little escapist mystery that wasn't to hard to predict but with enough little quirks to keep it interesting.

Living in a hurricane prone area it was interesting to see how another area prepares for an onslaught.

This book held my interest right away since I live in Florida I know the Sarasota area and it was fun to read a book talking about places I have been. The story was interesting and I read the book in less than a week. You keep turning pages to see what happens next and a hurricane is coming adding to the excitement. Has all the eliments of a well written murder mystery... Recommend it as a good summer read.
May 12, 2013 Gloria rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
This is a fast-paced book, which I thoroughly enjoyed. It is set in Sarasota, where I live , which made it more interesting to me. There are several characters including children, that touch your heart, and the ending is satisfactory. Part of the book is concerned with preparations for a hurricane, and is told well. I will probably look for another Mary Jane Clark novel to read.
This is a great thriller with short chapters for a quick and easy read. Nice tension, good drama and plenty of action. A good three day read. (P.S. Next weekend, I'll be able to request books and place bonus authors on my queue. I'll be at 22, close enough to 20. I should be done with my summer reads in November and request 10 books at a time, reading 2-3 a day, until I'm all caught up.)

a good mystery, but also i really liked it because the mystery takes place within blocks of where i am in florida right now! the book mentions streets and places i know so well, that made it a really fun read for me. i will be sure to pass this book on to the locals, they will love reading about our town of sarasota.
