Each book has thoroughly preposterous plots but they are entertaining. The plots are so over the top that you need more than the suspension of disbelief. You just have to give into the craziness.

Two years after Nina Peterson's brutal murder, her husband, Steve, is still fighting to bring the killer to justice. Their six-year-old son, Neil, remains haunted by the terrible vision of the murderer's hands wrapped around his mother's throat. And Sharon Martin, who has grown to love both Steve and Neil, wishes only to ease their pain and suffering. But as 19-year-old Ronald Thompson sits wrongly convicted on the eve of his execution, a stranger is still watching -- still plotting as he did before, living for the moment when he can kill and kill again....

I love Mary Higgins Clark and I have enjoyed her abridged books but this one is missing so much that it really isn’t pleasant. It’s disjointed. The narrator has a nice voice. On to the next one. I’m trying to read / listen to them all.

I like Mary Higgins Clark and wanted to start at the beginning. The audiobook is abridged but complete and well done. The narrator has a pleasant voice. The subject matter is rough but I am not going to give a hint of why.
