Praise for Mary Higgins Clark's The Lost Years
"Once again Mary Higgins Clark affirms why she is the 'Queen of Suspense'... Ms. Clark has another winner for her readers to enjoy getting us there with this entertaining taut tale in which the suspense spins from family violence to biblical archeological violence." --Mystery Gazette
"At once a breathless murder mystery and a hunt for what may be the most precious religious and archeological treasure of all time." --BookReporter.com
"Clark, known rightly as the queen of suspense, performs her usual magic...An intriguing blend of religious history and contemporary mystery, "The Lost Years" confirms Clark's status as a writer who is willing and able to bend her formula - and to do so successfully--to address topics not often found in the genre." --Richmond Times Dispatch
"If you're someone who enjoys sharing novels with others, though, beware: lend this book and you may never get it back. That's because, for mystery fans, 'The Lost Years' is truly a keeper." --Pittsburgh Tribune
Jan Maxwell infuses Clark's thriller with gravitas via her mellifluous narration and sensitive portrayal of protagonist Mariah Lyons, whose biblical scholar father is found dead after making a discovery (a letter written by Jesus Christ himself) that could upend modern Christianity. Jonathan Lyons is gunned down in his home office in New Jersey, and the culprit appears to be close to home: Mariah finds her mother next to the corpse, covered in blood, and holding what appears to be the murder weapon. Maxwell ably handles book's third-person narration, while also capturing the spirit of its heroine, a woman traumatized by a tragedy that threatens to rob her of both her parents.

Die-hard Clark fans will welcome her latest thriller, which builds a plot of murder and mystery around the disappearance and rediscovery of a letter written by Jesus Christ to Joseph of Arimathea. Other listeners may find the characters shallow, the resolution obvious, and the exposition overly dependent on characters' internal thought processes. VERDICT Broadway actress Jan Maxwell's reading is adequate but not memorable enough to rescue this program. Purchase if demand warrants.
