Publisher's Summary

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.

©1991 Mary Higgins Clark (P)2011 Simon & Schuster

Ok story

I am sure the story would have been better for me if I didn't have to listen to the narrator's voice. My goodness she got on my nerves. So glad Mary Higgins Clark doesn't use her anymore

Unusually good for an abridged book

I generally detest abridged books, but this one was easy to follow, and kept the story intact reasonably well. Had it been the full version, I probably would have given it 5 stars.

The performance was a bit dragged, but MHC has much better readers these days. This one did have clear pronunciation and enunciation. Very nice, as that isn't always the case.

Bad language

I couldn't believe that at the vet last chapters they used God's name in vain. Ruined the book for me.
