Beauty has its price....
Kerry McGrath had only begun to work in the county prosecutor's office at the time of the infamous "Sweetheart Murder Case" - the bizarre slaying years ago of strikingly beautiful Suzanne Reardon. Now, 10 years later, Kerry has gained a reputation as a smart and relentless prosecutor - so much so that her name has been given to the governor as a candidate for a new judgeship - and her new life and career are in full swing.
But Kerry's plans are turned upside down when her daughter Robin is injured in a car accident, requiring treatment from a well-known plastic surgeon. It is in his office that Kerry first encounters a beautiful face she remembers from her past but can't quite place - until she realizes that this angelic face is a troubling link to the "Sweetheart" case. When she starts asking questions, she soon discovers that everyone involved wants the case to remain closed...and will stop at nothing to keep it that way.
A terrifying look into a mind obsessed with beauty, Let Me Call You Sweetheart is America's Queen of Suspense at the very top of her form.

Marvelous suspense thriller!
Author Mary Higgins Clark is a national treasure as a uniquely talented story teller. She released her first in 1968 and released her 51st this year at age 90. This suspense thriller was released in 1995. It's the story of prosecutor Kerry McGrath who is convinced that a man convicted 11 years earlier of killing his wife is innocent. At great risk to her legal career and personal safety, and the safety of her young daughter, she decides she must prove the man's innocence. Like with most of her novels, Mary Higgins Clark comes up with a great plot twist at the end. Narration is excellent.
I hesitate to call this a legal thriller because there is no courtroom drama.
