Belle | 4 comments Hi guys,

I read a book telling a boy followed the wallet of his mum which contains kind of valuable veteran medal of his belovingly passed-away dad.
The bad guy who pickpocketted the wallet realized he's been noticeably stalked then kidnapped the boy.

I did read it from bookshelf of hostel in SF where I love the city so much.
San Francisco herself & the book have been nicely imprinting in my heart.

I cannot remember the book's name, nor the author's.
Please help me guys with this.
Thank you very much.
Greeting from Thailand.

Best regards,
N Chiangmai

Belle, how old is the boy? Is the book for teens or adults?

Can you describe the detective? Is this a mystery novel?

What's the location (country, region, well-known city, small town)?

Here's the Google Books preview of Silent Night by Mary Higgins Clark - Rosa's suggestion:

https://books.google.com/books?id=Kvo... There are different cover images.

Quote: "Brian Doman's mother is still keeping watch at the spot where her son disappeared shortly after 5:00 P.M. Authorities believe Catherine Doman's theory that Brian may have seen someone steal her wallet and followed that person. The wallet contained a St. Christopher medal, which Brian was desperately anxious to bring to his father's hospital bed."

Actually, your comment prompted me to look for a preview and search for a quote.

Belle | 4 comments Oh Kris! Thank you very much for the searchings. You made it!
YES IT IS! 'The Silent Night' by Mary Higgins Clark.

Although the story takes place in NY; I relate it to SF, my beloved city, coz I read the there while leisurely in a hostel.

Be my guest if you'd be in Chiangmai. It might have made it your beloved city I bet.

Greeting from Chiangmai, Thailand.

Belle | 4 comments Dear Rosa

You suggested me the right book and I'm dumb enough to read the Google search only 1 search saying 'Silent Night' by Ms Danielle story an aunt and her niece. That's why I told you that was not I'm looking forward to.

I'm terribly sorry Rosa.

Be my guest if you'd be in Chiangmai. It might have made it your beloved city I bet.

Greeting from Chiangmai, Thailand.
