Narrowly escaping an abduction attempt, a young woman wonders if serial kidnappings taking place throughout the country are related, a suspicion that compels her to join the investigation and pit herself against a dangerous adversary. By the author of The Second Time Around. Simultaneous.

Simon and Schuster
"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.'"
Jean Sheridan, a college dean and prominent historian, sets out to her hometown to attend the twenty-year reunion of Stonecroft Academy alumni, where she is to be honored along with six other members of her class. There is something uneasy in the air: one woman in the group about to be feted, Alison Kendall, a beautiful, high-powered Hollywood agent, drowned in her pool during an early-morning swim. Alison is the fifth woman in the class whose life has come to a sudden, mysterious end.
Adding to Jean's sense of unease is a taunting, anonymous fax she received, referring to her daughter -- a child she had given up for adoption twenty years ago.
At the award dinner, Jean is introduced to Sam Deegan, a detective obsessed by the unsolved murder of a young woman who may hold the key to the identity of the Stonecroft killer. Jean does not suspect that among the distinguished people she is greeting is The Owl, a murderer nearing the countdown on his mission of vengeance against the Stonecroft women who had mocked and humiliated him, with Jean as his final victim.

Mary Higgins Clark is a master at crafting stories: her command of pace, tension, structure. I enjoy her work primarily because I like witnessing skilled craftspeople do their thing. And I enjoy listening to Jan Maxwell read. But the characters in this book are despicable and dumb - which could still be interesting, but they're only despicable and dumb because the story needs them to be. The whole scenario would fall apart if the main character exhibited any sense. Also, when an author sets up half a dozen different people who all could be the murderer, and who would all make sense as the murderer, then the final reveal doesn't pack much punch. If it could just as well be any of them, then it doesn't much matter who it turns out to be.
