Every parents nightmare! missing children! What happened, where are they, it is starting all over again. This is a gripping tale of the horror of not knowing what happened to your children. You can't put it down.

Her first mystery, I believe. Thrilling, chilling! It kept my attention, even though I have read it many times before. Well-written, believable characters. I enjoy her older works the most. This mystery is about a woman who has fled her past, and an accusation of murdering her children, to start a new life in New England. She marries again, has two more children, and life is getting back to normal. Until she goes outside to fetch her children from their playtime one morning, only to discover they are missing.

One of her best!!

Oh my! This book was SO intense! I could not put it down. I stayed up late so I could finish it. I had never read anything from Mary Higgins Clark prior, I had judged her (by her name) to be a happy friendly read. I was really taken off guard and fear reading anything from her again! I was scared to find out what happend to the children but I just HAD to know so I couldn't put it down. If you like roller coaster reads then you will be in for a treat. I was freaked out! :D

I feel that this story was one of her best! Riveting and yet heartbreaking at times. A great read but beware if you have children. It can be a real eye-opener at times for Moms.

Where Are the Children is one of my all time favorites. I have read this book numerous times. The suspense and intrigue is alive and well. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to experience a really great read.

"Where Are the Children?" was the first book I've ever read by Mary Higgins Clark, and I loved it! The characters, the plot, and the structure were developed well throughout the entire book. However, the male characters were almost too similar in characteristic, such as an undying loyalty for their female companions or a history of lost loved ones (i.e. Atty. Jonathan Knowles and Dr. Lendon Miles). Yet despite these identical characteristics & minor grammatical errors, this book was thoroughly enjoyable. The story's pacing was smooth, and the suspense was steadily drawn out until the very end. I hope to read more of this author's brilliant work.

I recommend this book to all adult readers, even those who are not usual fans of suspense novels.

This book is great because while you know what you're reading is fiction, it's one of those books that is entirely plausible so you can get lost in it. An innocent woman has two young children who die, so she changes her name and appearance and moves away. Now, w/ith a new life, she has two more children and suddenly, they are both missing and she's a suspect. This is definitely a suspense story!

Suspense and terror as only Higgins Clark can do it! The characters are true to life, they could live next door, and the plot is full of twists that keep you reading all night.

The jaws of horror were closing on her again - and this time there was no escape.

Nancy Harmon had fled the evil of her first marriage, the macabre deaths of her two little children, the hideous charges against her. She changed her name, dyed her hair, moved from California to New England. Now she was married again, had had two more lovely children, and her life was filled with happiness...until the morning when she looked for her children and found only one tattered red mitten and knew that the nightmare was beginning again...

This may be the first Mary Higgins Clark novel and I think it's one of her best. The suspense is incredible and you'll turn the pages as fast as you can to follow the story of a mother desperate to find and bring home her two kidnapped children. In my opinion Ms. Clark's more recent books are not as gritty as her first efforts which are rich in atmosphere and edge-of-your-seat terror. If you haven't read Where Are the Children, you're in for a treat. If you read it once, read it again.
