At the heart of Mary Higgins Clark's stunning new novel of suspense is a brutal murder: that of Gary Lasch, a respected and successful young Greenwich, Connecticut, doctor and hospital and HMO head. He was found dead at his desk at home, his skull crushed by a blow with a Remington bronze sculpture, a prized piece from his art collection. The news strikes Greenwich society like a thunderbolt - as does the news that Molly Carpenter Lasch, the beautiful young wife of the slain doctor, has been arrested for her husband's murder. According to the trial testimony of her housekeeper, Molly had left home in a rage against her husband to go up to their house on Cape Cod. The morning after Molly's return, the housekeeper found Gary dead in his study and Molly upstairs in bed covered with blood. Nobody believes Molly's claim to have no memory of the events of the night of the crime - not her parents, not her friends, not even her own lawyer - and evidence against her is overwhelming. To escape an inevitable conviction she accepts a plea bargain, and subsequently her lawyer wins her early parole. A few years later, on Molly's release from prison, she reasserts her innocence in front of TV cameras and reporters gathered at the prison gate. Among them is an old acquaintance and schoolmate, Fran Simmons, currently working as an investigative reporter for the True Crime television series. Determined to prove her innocence, Molly convinces Fran to research and present a program on Gary's death.More

Enjoyed Listening to Jan Maxwell
Jan Maxwell's performance. She has a nice voice compared to the other reader, Christina ______. There are a few other Mary Higgins Clark books I would like to read and listen to but cannot listen to Christina's reading but Jan Maxwell does a very, very nice job and now the only books that I will read/listen to (I switch back and forth - when driving in the car or doing housework I will listen and at night, I will read the Kindle version.
