You Don't Own Me | Mary Higgins Clark, Alafair Burke
13 posts | 15 read | 1 reading | 4 to read
"Queen of Suspense" Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke are back with their fifth enthralling mystery in the New York Times bestselling Under Suspicion series; You Don't Own Me finds television producer Laurie Moran stopping at nothing to solve the murder of a celebrity doctor--even as she finds herself in grave danger as a mysterious stalker plots his next move. When we last saw Laurie Moran, she had recently become engaged to her show's former host, Alex Buckley. Since then, the two have been happily planning a summer wedding and honeymoon, preparing for Alex's confirmation to a federal judicial appointment, and searching for the perfect New York City home for their new life together. But then Laurie is approached by Robert and Cynthia Bell, parents of Dr. Martin Bell, a famously charming and talented physician who was shot dead as he pulled into the driveway of his Greenwich Village carriage house five years ago. The Bells are sure that Martin's disgraced and erratic wife, Kendra, carried out the murder. Determined to prove Kendra's guilt and win custody over their grandchildren, they plead with Laurie to feature their son's case on "Under Suspicion," ensuring her that Kendra is willing to cooperate. Kendra has lived under a blanket of suspicion since Martin's death, with the tabloid media depicting her as a secretive, mentally unstable gold-digger. Laurie's show is a chance for her to clear her name. But unbeknownst to the Bells, Kendra has already refused once before to go forward with a re-investigation of her husband's murder, and her statements to the contrary only add to the appearance of guilt. But once Laurie dives into the case, she learns that Martin wasn't the picture-perfect husband, father, and doctor he appeared to be and was carrying secrets of his own. And what does the web of lies ensnaring the Bell family have to do with a dangerous stranger, who gazes at Laurie from afar and thinks, She is actually quite a lovely girl, I'm sure she's going to be missed...? You Don't Own Me is the perfect, exhilarating follow up to the bestselling Every Breath You Take. The "Queen of Suspense" Mary Higgins Clark and her dazzling partner-in-crime Alafair Burke have devised another riveting page-turner.

In this installment of the Under Suspicion series, Laurie investigates the murder of a prominent doctor. His parents are convinced the wife is responsible and insist that Laurie produce this crime on her television show. Clark and Burke weave an engaging ‘who done it‘ story. This is an entertaining series that is coming to a close with only one more book. #MountTBR

2nd day of a 3 day lockdown to trace people who might have been in contact with a cleaner of one of our quarantine hotels who tested positive. Qld is going hard at keeping this virus out of our state. I am on my fifth review of 2021 books.
This penultimate book in the Under Suspicion series packs a punch and honestly had me flummoxed as to the culprit! These characters have managed to endear themselves to me and I enjoy each edition more and more.

CarolynM It's tough, but better to go hard early and get it under control fast than go through the months of lock down we had in Melbourne. I wish NSW would do it. 2y

Trying to finish the tagged book before it's automatically returned in the morning... I haven't had much time for reading lately, except for some picture books with LO. And yes, I'm wearing HP leggings 😂😂

May Higgins Clark is the author that made me fall in love with reading. I love this series that she writes with Alafair Burke. I love that I can never figure out who the killer is until the reveal who it is. I hope they write more books together!

Lauram My mother LOVED Mary Higgins Clark. Seeing her books always makes me think of her. ❤️ 4y
