I always like Mary Higgins Clark because I know what I am getting. Since I have read so many of them, I am getting better at predicting who the "murderer" is, but I still find that I can't stop turning the pages to find if my guess is correct. She is a clean writer and gives me just enough suspense without making me too scared.

Good book, though the ending was disappointing. The author spent so much time building up to a finish, that when the finish came, it was quite a let down. I'm not talking a little let down, I mean really disappointing. The kind of thing where you finish reading and then look for the rest of the pages that obviously fell out of the book. She left the final scene until pretty much the last chapter. But then there was so much to finish off that it just said, "Okay, all these people are dead, all th ...more

I didn't love nor hate this book.

I did like that the book was a page turner. I liked the short chapters allowing me to read 5 minutes here or 10 minutes there. I did like that it was an easy read for the situation I was in. I liked that the author included so many suspects. I did feel creepted out by the murderer thinking in first person. I did think it was blood and guts clean for a murder mystery.

I was disappointed in the main character, Carolyn. She wasn't very characteristic of what I imagi

Fans of Mary Higgins Clark know she has her formula. Her first four books didn't seem to be as formulaic, but ever since then, there are certain things we watch for. The mentally-incompetent person who knows something, but is being protected and told to shush, and when they finally talk, it's the clue to the whole case. We watch for the mentions of clothing and food (during the 1980's, the heroines wore capes and boots, and ate pasta and crusty bread with green salad and wine) We also know that ...more

I feel as though the Mary Higgins Clark books are good for quick reads.

For me all her books seem to be three point five star books. They’re good if you want something quick to read and yet I never seem to enjoy them as much as I love other authors. They’re sort of just there for when I want something quick to read.

I think my main problem is that they all seem to be a lot of the same, in my opinion. Whether it is simply due to the selection of her books I have read or whether such is the case all

I picked this up to see if I could decipher the key to Ms. Clark's longstanding success. I'm done and I still can't say I've deciphered that key. Formulaic with a very anticlimactic and unsatisfying ending...I can't recommend it. And I am certain Ms. Clark will weep bitter tears over this review as she counts her millions on her private jet.

3,5*

Mais um cartucho policial de Mary Higgins Clark que não me deixou desiludido, o final apanhou-me totalmente desprevenido, os suspeitos eram muitos! Gostei!

Predictible. I think her books have really gone downhill but I'll continue to read them I'm sure. I have read all of her books to date. She churns them out too quickly...a good fluff book though I guess.

Could you imagine how bizarre the feeling when your brother disappeared all of a sudden, and only make a phone call only on Mother's Day, and assured the family that he's doing well?

Charles McKenzie Jr. (known as "Mack" in this book) disappeared ten years ago shortly after his 21st birthday. Every year on Mother's Day he rings his mother and assures her that he is fine. Even when his father died on 9/11, he didn't emerge from hiding.

And now his sister Carolyn Mackenzie has had enough. She is de

Good enough mystery from MHC - did not predict the killer this time, but also did not feel there were nearly enough clues hinting at who it was. Clark's books are always quick and easy reads; I know what I'm getting when I pick one up.

“Onde estarás?” foi a minha estreia com a autora Mary Higgins Clark, que possui mais de 30 obras publicadas, tanto de autoria própria, como juntamente com a sua filha Carol Higgins Clark.

Charles MacKenzie Júnior, Mack como é conhecido por todos, é um jovem de 21 anos que desparece misteriosamente, contudo todos os anos no Dia da Mãe contacta a mãe salvaguardando que se encontra bem e que ninguém o deverá procurar. A sua irmã mais nova, Carolyn, passado dez anos do estranho desaparecimento do irm

While the overall premise of the book was intriguing, too many irritating things kept me from enjoying it. Told in multiple POVs (I lost count after the 10th person chimed in), much of the time in the beginning I had to skim back to figure out who was who and how (if at all) they connected.

I found Carolyn, our only first person POV, to be an inconsistent character. One moment she's spouting about being an amazing lawyer and the next she's seeking counsel over general law questions any attorney s

Mary Higgins Clark never disappoints me. Her writing is always smooth, her plots move along, and I like her protagonists. In this book, every Mother's Day, Charles "Mack" MacKenzie, Jr., calls his mother. But it's not your usual Mother's Day call because Mack walked out of his apartment one day and disappeared. Despite a nominal police investigation and a more thorough investigation by a P.I. no trace was found of the young man. However, a call received on the first Mother's Day after his disapp ...more

There is some suspicion that Mack has stolen his own car. Mack has been missing for 10 years. If he's using that car, how does he register it each year without being found? And what *did* happen to his car?
There was another incident that was so completely wrong/impossible but I can't remember what it was.

She goes into great detail and highlights so many incidents that aren't important and introduces so many characters that it helps keep the reader stumped as to 'who dun it' She also leaves so ma

Shelves: 2009-reads
OK, I will admit to being a Mary Higgins Clark fan from the get-go. What I most like about her books is that she builds suspense, but (for me at least) the solution isn't obvious from page 1 - having said that, though, you can still pick the book up and put it down to do something else without losing track of the story. Maybe that doesn't mean it's "Literature," but I always enjoy her stories!

This one is interesting to me, as it deals with a young man from a well-to-do family who disappeared sud

I read Mary Higgins Clark about once a year and usually because someone gives me one of her books. In other words, I'm not a big fan, but don't can't say I dislike her either. One of my problems with her writing is that she tends to repeat pieces of information as if one started reading the book in the middle and, therefore, the plot needed to be recapped. Irritating, especially since I can't name anyone who picks up a book and starts reading it wherever it falls open.

I used to be a big MHC fan, but over the last years & books I became quite disappointed as all the books seemed the same, they were all so predictable and unsuspenseful. But this one reminded me why I used to be a fan.
Mack disappeared one day 10 years ago and calls every year on mother's day to assure everything's ok. But now his sister Carolyn is tired of seeing their mother suffer and decides do go look for her brother. Another girl goes missing without a word and the police starts to thin

No. of pages required to get into book: at least 160.
Probability of figuring out who the killer was based on information provided in book: 0.0000001

The first 160-something pages felt like an introduction, then it took 300 or so pages to build up to the climax. Then there were around 10, maybe 20 pages, of action, and then a two chapter (maybe three page sum up and epilogue).

I read through 300 pages to have a very fast ending. Not that I didn't enjoy my second part of the read, or that the endin
