Mary Higgins Clark had been known as the Queen of Suspense. And she always delivered. In No Place Like Home, she gave us chills with shocking twists and turns. Liza Barton was wrongly accused of killing her mother and shooting her stepfather at the age of ten. Twenty years later, with a new name, a son and new husband, things weren't what they seemed, when Alex Nolan brought her old childhood home and knew her secret. One thing led to another from vandalism and pranks to a couple of murders. And she fell apart, right back in the spotlight, when she remembered the past and protected the identity. Right to the end, things come to a head with a disturbing twist, that someone's coming right after her, when she fought for her life.
I experienced cold chills, when I was read this mystery. It was very reminiscent of the true crime of Lizzie Borden. I began to feel real sorrow for Liza. I didn't like her step-father Ted nor Alex. Although he had true intentions, they weren't good. He railroaded her. I didn't like how the people picked on her and her son either. This one would leave you cold all over.
Ready to get chilled? Give this one a try!
