The Queen of Suspense arrives with a special tale for the holidays, featuring the return of two of her best-loved characters. A baby left in a rectory on Christmas Eve, a furtive burglar, and an accidental kidnapping fifteen years in the past leave a mystery to be solved amid the snows and lights of a New York City December. Former cleaning lady and amateur sleuth Alvirah Meehan, with oft-befuddled but always trustworthy mate Willy, return to the pages after appearances in the bestsellers Weep No More, My Lady and The Lottery Winner. Favorite characters, a seasonal tale and another Clark classic promise a triple-decker hit!

Book #41 was All Through the Night , by Mary Higgins Clark.

Eh. It was alright. It’s obviously just meant to be a short little Christmas tale. I’ve read much better from Mary Higgins Clark. But, I wanted something short, and that’s what I got!
