Daddy’s Gone A Hunting

Thursday, November 14


At four o’clock in the morning, Gus Schmidt dressed silently in the bedroom of his modest home on Long Island, hoping not to disturb his wife of fifty-five years. He was not successful.

Lottie Schmidt’s hand shot out to fumble for the lamp on the night table. Blinking to clear eyes that were heavy with sleep, she noticed that Gus was wearing a heavy jacket, and demanded to know where he was going.

“Lottie, I’m just going over to the plant. Something came up.”

“Is that why Kate called you yesterday?”

Kate was the daughter of Douglas Connelly, the owner of Connelly Fine Antique Reproductions, the furniture complex in nearby Long Island City where Gus had worked until his retirement five years earlier.

Lottie, a slight seventy-five-year-old with thinning white hair, slipped on her glasses and glanced at the clock. “Gus, are you crazy? Do you know what time it is?”

“It’s four o’clock and Kate asked me to meet her there at four thirty. She must have had her reasons and that’s why I’m going.”

Lottie could see that he was clearly upset.

Lottie knew better than to ask the question that was on both their minds. “Gus, I’ve had a bad feeling lately. I know you don’t want to hear me talk like this, but I sense something dark is going to happen. I don’t want you to go.”

In the shadowy 60-watt light of the night table lamp they glared at each other. Even as Gus spoke, he knew deep down he was frightened. Lottie’s claim to be psychic both irritated and scared him. “Lottie, go back to sleep,” he said angrily. “No matter what the problem is, I’ll be back for breakfast.”

Gus was not a demonstrative man but some instinct made him walk over to the bed, lean down, kiss his wife’s forehead, and run his hand over her hair. “Don’t worry,” he said firmly.

They were the last words she would ever hear him say. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Daddy's gone a hunting", "Une chanson douce" en français, est un très bon Mary Higgins Clark, avec cette fois une palette de personnages un peu plus large que d'habitude. En particulier le portrait d'un ancien du Vietnam devenu alcoolique puis SDF qui nous émeut du fond de sa solitude. Les autres personnages sont plus typiques de la romancière : des trentenaires célibataires, le patron d'une entreprise de copies de meubles anciens et ses deux filles Kate et Hannah, la victime et l'héroïne de cette histoire dont le suspense fonctionne bien, comme d'habitude.
Qui est, par ailleurs, le tueur des deux jeunes femmes disparues dont on nous présente les proches? Quel est le rapport de leur disparition avec l'intrigue principale ? Qui est responsable de l'incendie criminel qui a dévasté l'usine de confection de copies de meubles anciens et son musée contenant les originaux? Pourquoi Kate y avait-elle donné rendez-vous, juste au moment de l'incendie, à un ancien employé retraité de l'entreprise? Qui est donc responsable de la mort de ce sexagénaire et du coma dans lequel elle se retrouve plongée?
Evidemment vous n'aurez la réponse qu'au tout dernier chapitre mais si vous êtes un peu malins, vous l'aurez plus ou moins devinée auparavant.

Deux points faibles cependant : une coïncidence possible mais pas assez crédible et un épilogue bâclé en deux pages et demie qui nous laisse un peu sur notre faim. ceci dit, "Daddy's gone a hunting" vousd procurera un plaisir de la lecture constant dès la première page de ce roman.

Un bon polar, mais pas de la même veine que d'autres plus palpitants tels que 'Remember me' ou ' A cry in the night'...

Le site a accepté que je le retourne. Coût du retour : 10 euro. Je n'ai perçu aucun remboursement.
Je déconseille donc ce vendeur ou alors, ne vous trompez surtout pas. Coût total de mon erreur : 32 euro. Pas mal.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Fun ... a return to Clark's older style 17 avril 2013
Par Jill Dennison - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Mary Higgins Clark has become known as the "Queen of Suspense" in the years since her first novel, Where Are the Children (1975) and for good reason. Her suspense/mystery books are reminiscent of Agatha Christie with plot twists and turns, multiple red herrings, and a dramatic conclusion that the reader comes to understand only in the last pages of the book. Her novels for the last decade or so have focused on the uncanny sleuthing skills of Alvirah Meehan and her husband Willy and did not have the same edge as her earlier works. Daddy's Gone A Hunting, however, is more of a return to her earlier style and was a quick, easy and suspenseful read with just the right mix of suspense, loveable and hate-able characters, plot twists and humor. My only complaint, if in fact I have one, is that there are so many characters that it becomes difficult to remember who's who. Since I read the Kindle version, I must say the x-ray feature would have been of great benefit in this case, but unfortunately was not available for this book.

The story begins with a deadly explosion in the furniture warehouse of the Connelly family of New York, known for their high quality reproductions of fine antique furniture. Injured in the explosion is daughter Kate Connelly and dead is Gus Schmidt, a long-time employee who was bitter over having been fired five years earlier. Kate had called Gus, asking him to meet her at the warehouse in the wee hours of the morning, and now Kate is in a coma and Gus is dead; suspicion naturally falls on these two who cannot tell what actually happened. This is also the story of lawyer Mark Sloan from Chicago, his mother, and his sister Tracey who disappeared 28 years prior when she went to New York to pursue her dream of an acting career. And it is the story of a man named Clyde, a hero, a decorated Vietnam Vet who came home emotionally damaged after the war and left his family for a life on the streets. Their lives all convene in this tale of greed and subterfuge with just a little romance folded into the mix.

The book is fun, fairly non-violent for a mystery and appropriate for any age group from teens to seniors. While I have also enjoyed Ms. Clark's aforementioned series with Alvirah and Willy, this was a welcome switch back to her earlier style which led me to be a fan of her writing decades ago. Don't be put off by my 3-star rating ... those who follow my reviews know that I only give 4 or 5 star ratings to books I believe have significant social value, are destined to become classics, or are among the best books I've ever read.

DADDY’S GONE A HUNTING by Mary Higgins Clark. The story starts with an explosion that destroys the Connelly family antique reproductions business in New York City. Gus Schmidt, a former disgruntled employ, is killed and Doug Connelly’s oldest daughter, Kate, is seriously injured. Her younger sister, Hannah, refuses to believe Kate had anything to do with causing the explosion and keeps a daily watch at her bedside. Mark Sloan, a newly minted lawyer, moves to NYC to pursue his profession and the 28-year-old cold case of his missing sister, Tracey. Another missing girl, Jamie Gordon, daughter of a wealthy investment company executive also goes missing. The story has a multitude of interesting characters and at least three separate plot lines that Clark manages to weave together rather seamlessly. Early on I realized I needed a score card to keep track of Clark’s many characters. Only after I started making notes of each as they surfaced was I able to keep up with the story. Clark skillfully manages to bring each one of them to life. This novel will keep you engaged from the very first page to its shocking finish.
Some say that Mary Higgins Clark, after 40 years of writing, has lost her mojo; others say she should put down her pen. I say, you go girl. You surely have many more tantalizing stories to tell. For so many years you have been the icon of the suspense story-telling world. I, for one, await your next best seller.
I rate Daddy’s Gone a Hunting a strong 5 stars.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Better Than The Last Two But Still Lacking 1 septembre 2013
Par carmela - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This was an improvement over recent MHC novels but nowhere near the quality of her early work. Unlike some reviewers, I was not bothered by the multitude of characters but it certainly contributed to a lack of character development. Everyone seemed to fit a preconceived role - the victim, the sister, the distraught wife, the cop, the friend, the potential love interest and, of course, a select group of possible bad guys who (as any reader could figure out) were actually the bad guys. While I didn't learn much about the motivations of any one of these characters, I was, at least, was interested enough to keep reading this book to its conclusion.

Since there was little question as to who the bad guys were, it was their roles, their actions and their complicity that provided the suspense. Overall, it was an intriguing story, particularly how all of the disparate crimes were pulled together. However, having the main bad guy describe all of his crimes thru an internal dialogue was disappointing. (Still don't quite understand why he did what he did.) Surely there was a better way to provide that reveal.

At least the cops and the private detectives were competent, unlike some of her more recent novels. Her heroine(s)were not particularly interesting, likeable but rather dull and didn't really contribute to the advancement of the plot. MHC continues to feel the need to provide out-of-the blue romantic interests for her main female characters that have nothing to do with the plot and, in this instance, detract from it because of the overload of characters. Her continued reliance on certain expressions/habits wears thin: wearing slacks, eating sandwiches.

I try to keep MHC's novels in perspective - not great literature just easy reads to pass the time.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The formula works 14 mai 2013
Par Hughey Norman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I have read her entire collection. She write in a formula, but I like the formula. Part of my enjoyment is trying to guess the killer and I pride myself that I usually do before the midpoint of the book. This book took me deeper than any others before I figured it out. Ms. Clark, as usual has a sympathetic heroine and two or three romances. She set a scene better than most authors - her descriptions of the locale, the appointments, the scenery, and the character's attire always paint a good picture. I will continue to read the formula.

As usual. Higgins Clark has written another great mystery. Two separate murders had taken p l ace. The story revolves around finding what they had in common.. Lots of characters involved until an ex detective finally finds the connections.
