I've Got You Under My Skin

About the book: When Laurie Moran's husband was brutally murdered, only three-year-old Timmy saw the face of his father's killer. Five years later his piercing blue eyes still haunt Timmy's dreams. Laurie is haunted by more: the killer's threat to her son as he fled the scene: Tell your mother she's next, then it's your turn . . .

Now Laurie is dealing with murder again, this time as the producer of a true-crime, cold-case television show. The series will launch with the twenty-year-old unsolved murder of Betsy Powell. Betsy, a socialite, was found suffocated in her bed after a gala celebrating the graduation of her daughter and three friends. The sensational murder was news nationwide. Reopening the case in its lavish setting and with the cooperation of the surviving guests that night, Laurie is sure to have a hit on her hands. But when the estranged friends begin filming, it becomes clear each is hiding secrets . . . small and large.

And a pair of blue eyes is watching events unfold, too . . .

My review: I love Mary Higgins Clark's books. I love that they are always about a strong female character who has to protect herself from an unknown threat. I love just how suspenseful they are and how even the reader has no idea where or when the proverbial ax is going to fall. I also love how the setting is so well described, in this book, I felt as though I were there in Manhattan with Laurie and her family. I like that her books are basically clean, there might have been a couple of mild swear words, and it talked about people having affairs, but that was it, it didn't go into any graphic detail. This book is a great example of just how great of a writer Mary Higgins Clark is. I can't wait to read more of her books!

I was able to borrow this book from my local library.
