This early Mary Higgins Clark thriller raises questions about capital punishment and the justice system as it builds suspense. As the execution of a man convicted of his wife's murder nears, the fiancŽe and son of attorney Steve Peterson are kidnapped and stashed in a hidden room at New York's Grand Central Station. The kidnapping leaves Peterson doubting his friends and neighbors, and raises doubts about the impending execution. Richard Ferrone reads the mystery with a sinister voice that creates an air of menace and a chilling mood. The kidnapper's plan, which may have seemed unlikely in 1977 when this novel was published, may strike some listeners as too believable in the current climate of terrorist threats. J.A.S.
