The Lost Years by Mary Higgins Clark

Read while home alone? probably
Tissues needed? nope
Overall rating: 3.5 stars

Professor and archaeologist Jonathan Lyons may have found the only letter written by Christ. And he may have been killed for it. Suspicion for his murder falls most heavily on his wife Kathleen who has advanced Alzheimer’s, but daughter Mariah and friends Alvirah and Willy Meehan are out to prove Kathleen’s innocence. What dangers await them?

Mary Higgins Clark is a masterful storyteller and I love how she introduces myriad characters who eventually intertwine themselves into the narrative. I’ve read most (all?) of her books, so I’ve become pretty adept at predicting the outcome, but I still look forward to her newest release. The Lost Years was a quick, enjoyable book, but unless you’re already a Mary Higgins Clark fan it isn’t the book I’d read first.

A letter written by Christ would be an amazing archeological find; what artifact do you think would be the most incredible? 
Do you often solve the mystery before the characters? Does that make the book more or less enjoyable for you?
