    3. Imala sam to zadovoljstvo da je upoznam na sajmu knjiga u Njujorku davne 2002. i da upravo ovu knjige dobijem od nje sos autogram A onda sam se i uslikala s njom i njenom ćerkom, takođe spisateljicom :)

    4. I was constantly irritated by this book. I kept waiting for a "mystery" to occurr clues to lead to the conviction of someone else like the synopsis saidbut it never came. I was gravely disappointed and bored. I felt all that was wrote was how Ellie loved to go out and order expensive salmon fillets and grilled duck and how Rob was guilty and how bad Ellie felt and waaaahhhh waaaaahhhh waaahhhh. Same thing over and over and over again until the last 2 pages in which she turns all of Ellie's bad c [...]

    5. It started off pretty flat despite it was opened with the finding of a dead body in a garage. Ellie was just 8 years old when she found her sister dead. But, surprisingly enough, she didn't look like an 8 yo girl to me. The way she handled the situation and how she was treated, it was so hard to believe. Why she would blame her self so much about her sister's death? It's beyond normal. If I were Ellie, I would blame my self too, but not so intense like she did. After that, I would spend some day [...]

    6. Another great book by The Queen Of Suspense! I've read many books by Mary Higgins Clark and I've never been disappointed. I'm always caught off guard by the twist near the end that I didn't see coming. I Highly recommend this, and all books by The Queen of Suspense!

    7. Inconsistent pace and predictable ending spoil the suspenseWe're not likely to skip a novel by (mama) Clark, but this -- her 21st -- is far from her best. A good start leads into an absolute slug of a middle book, with most of the exciting action reserved for the three-page epilogue. Ironically, there is a reasonable degree of suspense to the plot, but our interest ebbed and waned so severely we might have put this down if we hadn't lined up for the hardback.The plot revolves around Ellie Cavana [...]

    8. This enthralling story is a first person narrative told by Ellie Cavanaugh, the 30-year-old survivor to a murder that devastated her family when she was only 7. She is now an investigative reporter, and has twice gone to the parole board to fight the parole of the man convicted of the brutal murder of her big sister Andrea. For 23 years, she had been convinced her sister's murderer was in prison, but now he, and his extremely wealthy family, are fighting to prove her wrong.This story twists as E [...]

    9. I have read a few books by Mary Higgins Clark, but this was by far my favorite. Ellie was just a young girl when her sister was murdered. Now years later the man who went away for her murder is getting out of prison. On a road filled with danger, Ellie is on the search for more evidence against Rob that will get him sent back to prison. This story was a twisted web of lies, betrayal, and a families love. The dedication that Ellie shows is what really made this book. She was just a young girl and [...]

    10. Livro deveras espectacular! Muito bem escrito, a acção desenrola-se a uma velocidade vertiginosa e as personagens são muito emocionantes.O suspense mantém-se até ao final e, uma vez mais, enganei-me no suspeito eh eh eh!Mary Higgins Clark é uma autora que nunca se deve deixar de ler.

    11. 3 1/2 stars. I unashamedly love MHC. Her books are very easy to read and play out almost like a movie in my mind. However, I marked this down by 1/2 star for the ending. It felt really rushed, as if she didn't know how to finish, or was too tired to go on. In fact, the book ends with a summary (shudder) explaining how the loose ends were tied up (a little too neatly). The other thing I didn't like about the book was its multitude of unnecessary characters. There were quite a few who were introdu [...]

    12. Y yo que creí que P.D.JAMES era mi idola !!Mary Higgins Clark me ha hecho pasar horas desesperantes y llenas de misterio.-Tuve miedo de recibir una parálisis facial o algo por el estilo - por los minutos que me pase con la boca abierta en la pagina 202- Mamá, supón que me olvido y les hablo del medallón que llevaba. Intentaré no decirlo, pero si me olvido, no dejarás que me metan a la cárcel , ¿Verdad?Casi dudo de Paulie Stroebel, ¿saben lo que significa eso? Tirar por la borda todas m [...]

    13. This was my first dealing with the author and if I’m honest I’m not one hundred percent sure where I sit. The story is interesting from the start yet it is not the fastest moving book I have ever read. Whilst events are moving forward throughout I felt as though there was no real action. It was almost an account of things passing by which compared to other books in this genre was really disappointed. Overall, I really did expect much more action than I was given.The story follows Ellie years [...]

    14. Yet another good mystery. I am not a reader who necessarily expects a book that is unpredictable. Sometimes books that are predictable are just as thrilling. I have enjoyed all of Mary Higgins Clark's works that I have ever read. This book had enormous meaning other then being a mystery, for Ellie she thought she knew her father and his feelings and after time she found out she was wrong. They worked out their differences and became a family again. She was able to obtain a new job, brought the t [...]

    15. Ellie was seven years old when her older sister Andrea was murdered. Now 23 years later her killer is up for parole and Ellie is determined that he stays in jail where he belongs. Rob Westerfield has always insisted that he was innocent of the murder but Ellie is set to prove him wrong. She puts up a website with the evidence that she uncovers which puts her own life in danger.

    16. All around, I enjoyed reading Daddy's Little Girl. I liked the simple way it was written and so it was easy to visualize the events. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was the main character, Ellie. I found her to be obsessive and frankly just plain rude and careless at parts. But other than that, the book itself was quite good.

    17. Wow. Once again, Mary Higgins Clark has drawn my attention to her books and the world she writes about. A very descriptive story, she again proves why she is the "Queen of Suspence".A very thrilling story that keeps you hooked and wanting more. ~Ceci~

    18. 'Daddy's Little Girl' by Mary Higgins Clark is a fabulous story filled with mystery and suspense. Mary Higgins Clark is a phenomenal author who was born December 24, 1929 and she is now 83 years old. She studied at Fordham university and has won many awards for her books. This novel is one of my favourites of Mary's collection. It is an amazing thriller that has so much suspense. Whenever I pick up this book I know I will be up for a long night of reading because this book is impossible to put d [...]

    19. Read this while in my new book shop, which of course is full of booksWas intrigued with Ellie and her journey to find justice for the brutal murder of her sister. I do love MHC books.

    20. A friend of mine recommended this book. It had a synopsis that sounded interesting: The heroine, Ellie, was only 7 years old when she discovered the dead body of her 15-year-old sister. There was a handful of suspects, one of whom was convicted and imprisoned despite his steadfast denial of guilt. 2 decades later he was set free, and Ellie, unable to bear this, began writing a book, bent on proving his guilt. New evidences were unearthed Sounds interesting, yeah?Nope. It was mind-numbingly dullE [...]

    21. There were a few things that I did not like about this novel, however I did appreciate the nuances within the plot, all those little details that suddenly came together were masterful. So here I go with the negatives:Ellie was far too dismissive, short-sighted and judgemental for me to championat all . Throughout the whole novel she believed that Rob was the killer and regardless of any other views or opinions, she just would not budge. I didn't really like that, I wanted her to be flawed and to [...]

    22. 2,5 en realidad El secreto de la noche" es una historia sencilla, sin pretensiones, que consigue entretener pero que yo no lo catalogaría como uno de los libros de la "Reina del suspense". Está bien como lectura ligera, pero tampoco se lo recomendaría a todo el mundo, mucho menos a los amantes del suspensejolapieldeunlector.

    23. The terrible tragedy of the murder of a fifteen year old girl named Andrea Cavanaugh shook the Westchester County community and brought the young girl's family to shambles. Her younger sister, only seven years old at the time, Ellie, helped to bring Andrea's killer to justice. Ellie's heartbreaking testimony put nineteen year old Rob Westerfield behind bars. Born from a wealthy respectable family, Westerfield was locked away and put his family name to shame. After serving jail-time for twenty-tw [...]

    24. Note: I have the hard-cover. Just saying because i put the review on the paperback. Not like it matters. Enjoy the review.This book had sucked me in since the beginning. Not being an avid reader whatsoever, i was amazed how much this book grabbed me, and never let me go. The story-line was so approachable, and i couldn't help but to remember every little second of it, and remember it so clearly, that i could relive it whenever i felt like it.It played out so well in my head, i could have sworn i [...]

    25. BACANYA UDAH DARI KAPAN DAN BARU BIKIN REVIEW SEKARANG. HAHAHAbenernya, saya dulu nggak pernah suka cerita-cerita misteri gitu. gimana, ya, soalnya saya males mikir yang berat-berat banget.
