In Silent Night, America's most beloved writer of suspense has crafted a very special story about the power of love, and of a child's courage and faith.

When her husband was diagnozed with lukemia, Catherine Dornan and their two young sons accompanied him to New York, during the Christmas season, for a life=saving operation.

Hoping to divert the boys from worry about their father, and to temper her own near despair, on Christmas Eve Catherine takes the boys to see Rockefeller Center's famous Christmas tree. Whey they stop to listen to a street musician, Brian, the younger boy, sees a woman take his mother's wallet, which holds a precious momento his grandmother has just given them, a St. Christopher medal that saved her husband's life in World War II, and which she and Brian believe will save his father's life now.

Unable to get his mother's attention, Brian impulsively follows the woman who has taken the wallet into the city's subways, thereby beginning a journey that will threaten his life and change that of his mother and of the thief, as well.

Written with warmth, yet set against a background of menance and thrilling suspense, Silent Night is about courage in the face of adversity, and faith renewed and faith rewarded.

It is Mary Higgins Clark's Christmas gift for readers of all seasons. (front and back flap)

It is Christmas Eve in New York City when Brian, a determined seven year old, follows the thief who took his mother's wallet, hoping to retrieve the St. Christopher's medal that he believes will save his father, who has leukemia, just as it saved his grandfather in World War II. However, the child is kidnapped by a vicious escaped convict who needs a hostage. The central characters come to life rapidly as the fast-moving story quickly builds suspense. Teens will appreciate the realistic, paradoxical description of the relationship between Brian and his older brother: caring, concerned, and name-calling at the same time. Although readers know that the ending will be a happy one, they won't expect the coincidences and the touching holiday details.?

While in New York for a lifesaving operation for her husband, Catherine Dornan takes their young sons to see the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center. Stopping to listen to a street musician, seven-year-old Brian sees a woman take his mother's wallet. The wallet holds his grandmother's St. Christopher medal--the medal that saved her husband's life in WWII and which Brian believes will save his father's life now. Unable to get his mother's attention, young Brian follows the thief into the city's subways--beginning a journey that will threaten his own life and forever change the lives of his mother and the thief.

-I read this the morning after Christmas. It was an enjoyable quick read. I am usually not a fan of Mary Higgens Clark but this one kept my attention. It's the story of a family who is in NY for Christmas. The father has leukemia and is having an operation to remove his spleen. The mother and two boys, Brian and Michael, are spending some time looking at the Christmas decorations in the city. Taking a break from the tention, they are watching a fiddler play Christmas carols. When the younger boy, Brian sees a young girl pick up his mom's wallet that has fallen out of her purse, he follows the girl because the wallet contains a special metal he wants to give to his father for Christmas. He doesn't realize he is beginning a dangerous journey that will eventually take him hundreds of miles away from safety with an escaped convict. If you are looking for a quick, suspensful, heartwarming story, this is a good one to try!

Catherine Dornan is in Manhattan with her two sons because her husband, Tom, an Omaha pediatrician, is hospitalized there for leukemia and has just had his spleen removed. When a troubled stranger, Cally Hunter, makes off with Catherine's wallet, seven-year-old Brian Dornan doggedly pursues her because the wallet contains a St. Christopher medal that saved the life of his grandfather in WWII, by deflecting a bullet. Brian believes that the medal will save his dad's life, too, as his grandmother has predicted, and he is determined to get it back. Enter Jimmy Siddons, Cally's brother, a cop killer escaped from Riker's Island prison, who abducts Brian, holding him hostage at gunpoint as he heads for Canada in a stolen car.

I've never read a book by Mary Higgins Clark before, so I decided to try this one since it had a Christmas theme and I wanted a holiday book. It was a fast and easy read and although it was based at Christmas time, the actual storyline didn't have much to do with Christmas itself. Overall though, it was a decent read, it kept me interested and I liked the somewhat predictable ending.

I rate this book 3.5 out of 5 stars
