Kidnapping is a devastating situation which occurs in everyday life. In "A Stranger is Watching", it shows the viewpoint from which one is kidnapped. The novel gave a horrifying insight on what, the character that had been kidnapped, had to go through. It gave great detail on the emotional distress that the character felt, it made the reader feel as if he/she were the ones going through the terrifying tragedy. It also showed the viewpoint from the police officers and the investigators, and the stress they had to go through as the victems lives depended on them.
It's truely amazing what a difference one person can make and how many lives they effect. Many people were effected by this tragedy and many people put in 110% effort to help save the victems lives and to obtain justice. The novel shows the reader what the many people that are effected have to go through in real life situations. I recommend this novel to anyone who loves intense reading.
The story is about a man whose wife was murdered, leaving him with a motherless son. He has recently fallen in love again, and his son-Neil-is reluctant to bond with his father's romantic interest. The only issue in Steve (Neil's father)'s relationship with this woman is that they both have different views on the death penalty: he is strongly for it, she is strongly against it. This is all connected to the young man sitting on death row, convicted of killing Steve's wife.
However, this young man did not kill Steve's wife. Rather, the guilty person is still alive, free and well and ready to kidnap Neil and Steve's love interest. He hides them in Grand Central Station and the reader's heart is soon beating--hoping somehow that Neil and Steve's love can be delievered home safely.
The one thing I don't like about this book is the title: "A Stranger is Watching." It's a nice title, but it just doesn't seem to fit this specific book.

I've read every Mary Higgins Clark - it's an easy read, keeps you engaged, female protagonist. Can't wait for her to write a new one.Published 16 days ago by Gennara Moore
This was not one of her best. It did not thrill me enough, was not mysterious enough, not many surprises.Published 2 months ago by Zuki
