Description

IN WORLDWIDE BESTSELLING SUSPENSEWRITER MARY HIGGINS CLARK'S SPELLBINDING NEW THRILLER, A BROADWAY STAR'S MURDER IGNITES A SHOCKING SERIES OF DEADLY EVENTS. . . . After famous actress Natalie Raines is found in her home, dying from a gunshot wound, police immediately suspect her theatrical agent and jealous soon-to-be-ex-husband, Gregg Aldrich. But no charges are brought against him until two years later, when a career criminal suddenly claims Aldrich had tried to hire him to kill her. The case is a plum assignment for attractive thirty-two-year-old assistant prosecutor Emily Wallace. She spends long hours preparing for the trial, and unaware of a seemingly well-meaning neighbor's violent past, gives him a key to her home to care for her dog. The high-profile trial makes headlines, threatening to reveal personal matters about Emily, such as the fact that she had a heart transplant— especially when she experiences eerie sentiments that defy all reason and continue even after the jury decides Gregg Aldrich's fate. But little does she know, now her own life is at risk. . . .

Professional reviews

"Assistant Prosecutor Emily Wallace is excited about the high-profile murder case her boss has assigned her and works hard for a conviction. But did the handsome husband really shoot his wife? Narrator Jan Maxwell treats this thriller too lightly, at times robbing the story of its suspense. While delivering her version of a thug's speaking style, she stops short of putting real muscle into her voice. Likewise, her portrayal of the accused's anguish over his unfair treatment by the court and the press never reaches a credible level of pathos. Trying to figure out whodunit is the best part of any Mary Higgins Clark novel, and the author, thankfully, doesn't disappoint to the extent that her narrator does. R.L.L.
