This was my first read by Clark -- certainly an éminence grise in the field -- and I must say enjoyed it. I picked this up because I read was about a class reunion as the setting for a former nerd taking murderous revenge on his onetime bullies, and that is exactly the kind of petty fantasy nonsense I can empathise with.

While the reunion part was disappointing, the other plotlines that were introduced picked up the slack. Essentially, the reunion is there to provide a plethora of suspects, and Clark skilfully makes it seem as though they all could be the killer. Of course, tension ramps up towards the end. Nothing surprising, but a quality crime read nonetheless.

So. Not a raving review, but simply a solid whodunnit. ( )

Ties up all ends in last chapter

Jean Sheridan, a college dean and prominent historian, sets out to her hometown in Cornwall-on- Hudson, New York, to attend the twenty-year reunion of alumni of Stonecroft Academy, where she is to be honored along with six other members of her class. There is, however, something uneasy in the air: one woman in the group about to be feted, Alison Kendall, a beautiful, high-powered Hollywood agent, died just a few days before, drowned in her pool during an early- morning swim, the fifth woman in the class whose life has come to a sudden, mysterious end.

I really enjoyed this book, which appealed to me from the very first page. Warning: It is a highly addictive book, which was difficult to put down! This was finished on the same day it was started - although in the early hours of the morning. I like the fast moving paced of books by Mary Higgins Clark, and the way they keep you guessing throughout the book about 'Who Did It'. As the book moved on I kept changing my mind about who 'The Owl' was, but still got it wrong. Curses!
If like fast moving suspense books that keep you fully engaged I would recommend this book. Enjoy! ( )

The definition of an owl had always pleased him: A night bird of prey...sharp talons and soft plumage which permits noiseless flight...applied figuratively to a person of nocturnal habits. "I am the owl," he would whisper to himself after he had selected his prey, "and nighttime is my time."
For Vincinet Viola, a proud West Point graduate,
and his lovely wife, Theresa,
