All Around the Town


1bOne of my clients gave me the most amazing book to read. All Around the Town by Mary Higgins Clark. First of all, this is the first time in at least a year that I have read a book I can hold in my hands rather than on my Kindle. The down side to this is I cannot read late at night while Jason is already asleep. I am so spoiled with that Kindle and its back light. This was the first book I have read by Mary Higgins Clark and it did not disappoint! It grabbed me from the first chapter and I just could not put it down. I highly recommend it to those who enjoy reading suspense. The synopsis is below.

When Laurie Kenyon, a twenty-one-year-old student, is accused of murdering her English professor, she has no memory of the crime. Her fingerprints, however, are everywhere. When she asks her sister, attorney Sarah, to mount her defense, Sarah in turn brings in psychiatrist Justin Donnelly. Kidnapped at the age of four and victimized for two years, Laurie has developed astounding coping skills. Only when the unbearable memories of those lost years are released can the truth of the crime come out—and only then can the final sadistic plan of her abductor, whose obsession is stronger than ever, be revealed.
