Get ready to be scared with this great thriller from best-selling author, Mary Higgins Clark. Defence lawyer Emily Graham, recovering from a horrific stalking experience, buys back her ancestral home in the beautiful Victorian resort of Spring Lake, a prestigious enclave with a disturbing past - one that is about to be linked to the present in terrifying circumstances. Within a day of moving into her new home, police discover two bodies in Emily's backyard - their deaths separated by exactly a century. It soon appears that the old death is more than casually connected to the more recent one and further enquiries reveal that another two murders committed at the end of the 19th century are also tied to the disappearances of two young girls in the same area within the last few years. Similarities abound and the question is soon raised as to whether the late 19th century killer has been reincarnated... Fast-moving, page-turning action is accompanied by several sub-plots designed to keep the reader on tenter hooks till the final climactic finish. Not to be missed by any crime afficionados who like a touch of the supernatural. - Lucy Watson
