Summary

Summary

In this collaboration between “Queen of Suspense” Mary Higgins Clark and bestselling author Alafair Burke, “the snappy pace, layered characters, and many plot surprises will keep readers guessing in this fascinating mystery” (Booklist).

Television producer Laurie Moran is delighted when the pilot for her reality drama, Under Suspicion, is a success. Even more, the program—a cold case series that revisits unsolved crimes by recreating them with those affected—is off to a fantastic start when it helps solve an infamous murder in the very first episode.

Now Laurie has the ideal case to feature in the next episode of Under Suspicion: the Cinderella Murder. When Susan Dempsey, a beautiful and multi-talented UCLA student, was found dead, her murder raised numerous questions. Why was her car parked miles from her body? Had she ever shown up for the acting audition she was due to attend at the home of an up-and-coming director? Why does Susan’s boyfriend want to avoid questions about their relationship? Was her disappearance connected to a controversial church? Was she close to her computer science professor because of her technological brilliance, or something more? And why was Susan missing one of her shoes when her body was discovered?

With the help of Under Suspicion host Alex Buckley, Laurie knows the case will attract great ratings, especially when the former suspects include Hollywood’s elite and tech billionaires. The suspense and drama are perfect for the silver screen—but is Cinderella’s murderer ready for a close-up?

Together Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke deliver “plenty of intrigue and excitement” (Publishers Weekly) in this exciting start to a new series that will keep you guessing until the final page.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A dynamic new author duo adds new verve to a classic.” Barnes&Noble.com, editorial review
“MWA Grand Master Clark uses the main characters of her thriller I’ve Got You Under My Skin for this engaging collaboration with Burke.” Publishers Weekly
“The snappy pace, layered characters, and many plot surprises will keep readers guessing in this fascinating mystery by two talented writers.” Booklist
“This serendipitous series launch, or continuation, will satisfy Clark’s legion of fans and may well win her some new ones.” Kirkus Reviews
“Jan Maxwell’s clear, appealing voice relaxes the listener…Maxwell differentiates male and female characters slightly and employs nasal or gruff voices to portray older characters. She manages to make each distinct and provides smooth transitions. The premise of the story is smart, and, combined with Maxwell’s acting chops, this is sure to be a popular series.” AudioFile
