Following the breakup of her marriage and her pursuit by an obsessed stalker, criminal defense attourney Emily Graham accepts an offer to work in a major Manhattan law firm. Feeling a need for roots, she buys her ancestral home in New Jersey, which her family sold in 1892, after the disappearance of young Madeline Shapley one of Emily's forbears. Now, more than a century later, as the house is being renovated, the bones of a young woman are found in the backyard. She is identified is Martha Lawrence, who disappeared four years earlier. Cluched in Martha's skeletal hand is the finger bone of another woman with a ring still on it -- a Shapley family heirloom.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Clark’s prose…takes readers where they want to go—deep into an old-fashioned tale of a damsel in delicious distress.”  Publishers Weekly
“The cleverly complex plot gallops along at a great clip, the little background details are au courant, and the identities of both murderers come as an enjoyable surprise. On the Street Where You Live just may be Clark’s best in years.”  Amazon.com, editorial review
“Mary Higgins Clark is at her hair-raising best with On the Street Where You Live; after more than twenty-five years in the biz, Clark’s plotting remains fresh and original, and her prose is still sharp as a knife. Chilling, engrossing, and genuinely enjoyable, On the Street Where You Live shows that the Queen of Suspense continues to work with the deftness and grace of a true master of the form.”  Barnes & Noble, editorial review
“A suspenseful page-turner that will delight her many fans.”  Booklist
“A highly entertaining thriller that just might provoke you to view your friends and family in a more speculative light.”  BookReporter.com
“Mary Higgins Clark’s strongest novel in years. This is a delicious chiller that will keep you guessing until the very last page is turned.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars)
