The Anastasia Syndrome

Mary Higgins Clark / Author, Julie Rubenstein / Editor Pocket

This collection's title novella concerns a woman ``retrogressed'' to the 17th century's English Civil War by Dr. Patel, famous for treating a woman claiming to be the Russian royal family's Anastasia. According to PW, these five tales ``amply demonstrate Clark's skill at maintaining suspense by creating nightmarish situations that lie just beneath the surface of ordinary life.'' (Mar.)
