Review of 'On the Street Where You Live'

On the Street Where You Live by Mary Higgins Clark

Emily Graham has just moved into her ideal home in the quiet community of Spring Lake, New Jersey just a short drive from the job she has in New York. No sooner has she moved in when the body of a missing girl is found during excavations in her back yard for a pool – the strange thing is that this girl has the bone of another murder victim in her grasp. The murders begin to add up as the copy-cat serial killer stalks his new victims in the small community. Quite a good story with (as may be expected) a lot of potential suspects in the numerous personal asides told from the viewpoint of other residents. Quite good writing with a predictable suprise ending. The pace is quick with the days heading leading up to the final murder aniversary night passing by with more and more tension…Is it the ex-husband? What about the stalker from Emily's previous life? The odd local historian? The failed restauranteur? …
