Third person-first person-third person. There was also the stereotypical plethora of worn characters: There were also, in addition to the worn out characters, were an abundance of worn out storylines: An old guy has a heart attack. I probably will not finish this book. But I doubt I will finish it. I doubt I will read any more novels by Mary Higgins Clark.

When her professional work demanded something creative, Laurie settled for unsolved crime cases for her television show, hoping to strike gold. She got more than she bargained for.
See a Problem?
She and Timmy are perilously perched as the killer strikes again, in the process, giving the cold case a chance to be solved or the killer making good on his threat to Timmy, "Tell your mother she's next, then it's your turn The mystery is wrapped beautifully while there is some depth to the story. The characters are both fascinating and likeable. I'm sure many readers will really enjoy this latest mystery from the 1 international and New York Times bestselling author.
Apr 02, Toni rated it liked it. This book was very simplistic. I was expecting something more.
Maybe I am just getting to picky in my old age. Sep 10, Heather rated it it was ok. If I never pick up another Higgins Clark book it will be too soon. Too many parts of the book are just ridiculous. Que excelente estreia com esta escritora!
I got you / I've got you
Muito curiosa de ler os restantes livros da serie. I have read all of this author's books over the years and classify this one among her best. There were plenty of suspects, several simultaneous story lines, and personal life stories of the characters revealed along with action drama and suspense. It was written in Clark's unique style, and I found it a satisfying read. Apr 09, Farrah Johnson rated it it was ok.
I am a huge fan of Mary Higgins Clark and I've read every single one of her books. The storyline itself was intriguing: All the suspects from that night, including her I am a huge fan of Mary Higgins Clark and I've read every single one of her books.
All the suspects from that night, including her daughter, her three friends, Betsy's wealthy husband and loyal housekeeper, will gather at the scene of the crime twenty years later. Did I mention that the producer's husband was fatally shot in front of their young son by a man who claims that "she's next, then Timmy"?
Throw in the supposed Blue Eyes killer seeking revenge on the producer and it seems like it's classic Mary Higgins Clark. However, both the killers in this novel are hard to figure out and their motives don't come to the forefront as quickly as they should. It just reads like both killers were picked out of a hat, with their motives being picked out of another hat. I will concede that the actual novel is well written though, and the characters are interesting. But with an ending that lacks authenticity, it kind of falls flat.
Gostei de ler e tive vontade de saber sempre o que ia acontecer a seguir. Mas o desfecho deixou um pouco a desejar, mas nada que me desencoraje a ler mais livros desta escritora. I know exactly to what expect from this author. A good mystery, filled with many characters and many red herrings. She has a very unique style of writing which is pretty easy to read. This book had a good plot — a reality show based on reenacting unsolved murders with the actual persons involved in the case. I found it a bit ha I know exactly to what expect from this author.
I found it a bit hard to engage with most of the characters — perhaps too many and a few things that just did not fit in for me. May 05, Maureen rated it it was ok Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This was as disappointing as her last few books. It was implausible and the culprit in the main story was obvious.
None of the characters in the Graduation Gala were likable and I semi-hoped they'd all go to prison. In the second story line there is no way that Timmy would be allowed to go without documentation, contact with the parent or some other event.
The main character was undeveloped as was that story line. It was as if she started with two book ideas, developed neither fully and decided This was as disappointing as her last few books. It was as if she started with two book ideas, developed neither fully and decided to mash them together. Apr 16, Maryann rated it it was amazing. What can I say! Every year I wait anxiously for spring, when Mary Higgins Clark brings out a new, wonderful book. This is her 33rd mystery and suspense book and I was pleased.
I haven't decided if I want the hard back or the Kindle edition, but I went ahead and borrowed my friend's copy and read it in one day!

I know her books are somewhat formulary,but they always leave me satisfied. Gosto destes policiais levezinhos e mais uma vez li-o a correr, nunca cansa e surpreende no final.. This book started out pretty good. It had a thrilling opener and seemed to have a good potential for a great story.
However, once the production of the TV show started everything just sort of got very dull. I didn't connect with any of the characters and the four graduates who returned for the show to tell the world they were innocent of socialite, Betsy Powell's, murder all became very repetitive in their "stories" and that's all the reader read about for about pages was not only their alib This book started out pretty good. I didn't connect with any of the characters and the four graduates who returned for the show to tell the world they were innocent of socialite, Betsy Powell's, murder all became very repetitive in their "stories" and that's all the reader read about for about pages was not only their alibis but also potential motives.
Speaking of repetitive, the back story on the producer, Laurie Moran, was completely overdone! Her father, an ex-cop and Laurie were absolutely obsessed! And that got irritating.

I wanted to scream "Ok! We get you are scared and overprotective of your son but come on! Timmy clearly remembers the man's eye color blue and constantly says throughout the book that "Blue-Eyes shot my Daddy! Next time it's your mom then you Timmy! So basically there were 2 stories going on. One being the production of the show Under Suspicion in which cold murder cases are investigated and re-created in order to maybe shake someone's memory and find a killer.
Then two Laurie and her father, Leo, on constant watch for Blue-Eyes to return and carry out his threat. Again this could have gone to great places but it was just too repetitive and dull. The plot line around Blue-Eyes was completely unbelievable and actually became distracting to the story.
It's too bad that Clark just seemed to get lazy. This is supposed to be the beginning of a series for her.

Since I already own the next book, I will read it. I just have high hopes that the next is better! Aug 06, Steph rated it it was ok. There was no mystery in this book I didn't find any of the characters interesting or like a bowl I really didn't like anything about it it was very bland.
The most interesting part is the brief description. About the book which made me want to read it but in fact was the only interesting part of the book.

JeffJo , Jun 30, Hello, I knew get as to understand, but I've faced it, what I think, in a different meaning, so as I'm told if something what I want to ask has its thread, I shall ask in this thread. So could you explain to me the meaning of usage the verb 'to get' in such a context: I'm watching Frozen, and it's a scene where Elsa a girl that has magic power of cold unintentionally shot her sister Anna, and then Anna's lying on Elsa's knees and Elsa says: Does it mean I keep you, you're going to be alright?

Or it could be something else Please, make the meaning clear to me and probably for others that will be looking for it in the future! MrRise , Dec 26, Hello MrRise, yes, it's pretty much as you understand it. He sang it with a big band in an arrangement by Nelson Riddle. The slide trombone solo is by Milt Bernhart. Sinatra usually included the song in his concerts, —a tradition carried on by his son, Frank Sinatra Jr.
A live version of the song appears on the album Sinatra at the Sands with Count Basie and his orchestra. The music video was directed by Jean-Baptiste Mondino. Cherry replaced most of the lyrics with a rap on AIDS victims and how society reacts to them. Of the original Cole Porter lyrics, she kept only the first four lines and "Use your mentality, wake up to reality".
