Mary Higgins Clark, the Queen of Suspense, crafts a terrifying story of murder and obsession with "a slambam finish" (Los Angeles Times Book Review).
ALL AROUND THE TOWN
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.
Clark pulls out all the stops in this efficiently suspenseful page-turner, a Literary Guild main selection and a 15-week PW bestseller in cloth, telling of a college senior accused of murder and the televangelist couple who abused her as a child.

This is fun reading! not a mystery but rather a tale of a kidnapping and the trauma that follows!
I couldn't sleep one night after reading the middle part of the tale!
I’m happy to give this book five stars! What a great book. It was filled with love, drama, suspense, intrigue, and evil. I couldn’t put it down. So if you don’t have a few hours to devote to this book, you might want to wait until you have a few hours free because you won’t want to stop once you start reading it...Mary Higgins Clark does it again!
