Mary Higgins Clark is one of most beloved modern mystery writers. Soon to be 91-years-old next month, "The Queen of Suspense" has sold over 100 million copies of her novels in the U.S. alone.

Many of her books have been turned into movies over the years.

Final Thoughts

I wasn't aware there were so many made-for-television movies based on Mary Higgins Clark's novels until this DVD set was released. The best film in the set is Where Are The Children?, which is one of four films that were released to theaters. While it's not the greatest adaptation, as film quality goes, it's the best out of the fourteen films on this release. The rest of the films are average at best with some very questionable acting. They're not the best films in the world, but I found most of them to be entertaining.

The picture and sound quality varies per movie. A few of the movies looks great and others are a bit grainy, like a VHS tape.

Overall, Mary Higgins Clark: 14 Film Collection would make a fun gift for any fan of Mary Higgins Clark's novels.
