Short stories by Mary Higgins Clark. I'm not usually a big fan of short stories, but these all had Mary Higgins Clark's touch. Five stories included. The Anastasia Syndrome (of course), Terror Stalks the Class Reunion, Lucky Day, Double Vision, The Lost Angel.

In this novel, prominent historical writer Judith Chase is living in London and preparing for her marriage to Sir Stephen Hallett, expected to become England's next Prime Minister. Orphaned during World War II, Judith wants to trace her origins. In this quest, she goes to a renowned psychiatrist and becomes the victim of his experiments in regression. When a woman in a dark green cape sets off bombs in London, Sir Stephen and Judith are faced with an intangible, mysterious force threatening their very existence.

Obsessive love is the subject of "Terror Stalks the Class Reunion"; psychic contact with a dead twin sister is the only defense against a murder in "Double Vision; "Lucky Day", compared to O. Henry's "the Gift of the Magi", begins with a premonition of imminent danger; in "The Lost Angel", a desperate mother follows her intuition in a harrowing search for her missing child.

These stories amply demonstrate Clark's skill at maintaining suspense by creating nightmarish situations that lie just beneath the surface or ordinary life.
