Top customer reviews
Some say that Mary Higgins Clark, after 40 years of writing, has lost her mojo; others say she should put down her pen. I say, you go girl. You surely have many more tantalizing stories to tell. For so many years you have been the icon of the suspense story-telling world. I, for one, await your next best seller.
I rate Daddy’s Gone a Hunting a strong 5 stars.
Since there was little question as to who the bad guys were, it was their roles, their actions and their complicity that provided the suspense. Overall, it was an intriguing story, particularly how all of the disparate crimes were pulled together. However, having the main bad guy describe all of his crimes thru an internal dialogue was disappointing. (Still don't quite understand why he did what he did.) Surely there was a better way to provide that reveal.
At least the cops and the private detectives were competent, unlike some of her more recent novels. Her heroine(s)were not particularly interesting, likeable but rather dull and didn't really contribute to the advancement of the plot. MHC continues to feel the need to provide out-of-the blue romantic interests for her main female characters that have nothing to do with the plot and, in this instance, detract from it because of the overload of characters. Her continued reliance on certain expressions/habits wears thin: wearing slacks, eating sandwiches.
I try to keep MHC's novels in perspective - not great literature just easy reads to pass the time.
