This book has it all, a gripping story that grabs your attention from the first few words and keeps it throughout, well developed characters, and excellent narration.
The story has lots of twists and turns, and keeps you wondering until the very end. This is my idea of an excellent murder mystery. I especially liked the premise of a TV show re investigating cold cases.
Now that I've read this book, I'm going to read more by Alafair Burke, the co-author.
Jan Maxwell's narration is spot-on, one of the best I've heard. She can do both male and female voices, and has a good sense of pacing and emphasis. She's to be commended.
This was my first read of 2015 and it was a good way to start my reading year. I highly recommend this book.

This book is written by two authors I have read over the years and enjoyed. Mary Higgins Clark has been writing stand alone novels for over forty years many which have become best sellers. Alafair Burke is the daughter of author Jamie Lee Burke. Alafair is a law professor and an author in her own right.
“The Cinderella Murder” is to be the first book in a new series. The story will continue Mary Higgins Clark’s story of television producer Laurie Moran’s investigation of cold case murders. In this book the show investigates the decades old murder of a beautiful UCLA student whose body was found in the Hollywood Hills missing a shoe. The murder was dubbed the “Cinderella Case” by the press.
I have found that both authors imbue their novels with unbelievable suspense and that follows through in this story. When I started reading the book I found I could not stop, good thing the audio book was only about 8 hours long. The book is fast moving and riveting. If you enjoy mystery stories you will love this one. Jan Maxwell narrated the book.
