The third thrilling novel in the Under Suspicion series by #1 New York Times bestselling author and "Queen of Suspense" Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke follows television producer Laurie Moran as she tries to help a woman she believes was wrongfully convicted of killing her fianc#65533;.

Fifteen years after being convicted of murdering her fianc#65533;--the famed philanthropist Hunter Raleigh III--Casey Carter is determined to clear her name. Though she has served her time, she finds that she is still living under suspicion. Going on the true crime show Under Suspicion seems to be her only hope to prove her innocence.

The show's producer, Laurie Moran, also believes in her innocence and wants to help Casey. But with Alex Buckley taking a break from the show--cooling his potential romance with Laurie-- Under Suspicion introduces a new on-air host in Ryan Nichols, a hot shot legal whiz with a Harvard Law degree, a Supreme Court clerkship, experience as a federal prosecutor. Ryan has no problems with steering the show, and even tries to stop Laurie from taking on Casey's case because he's so certain she's guilty.

An egomaniacal new boss, a relentless gossip columnist, and Casey's longstanding bad reputation: Laurie must face this and more to do what she believes is right, to once and for all prove Casey's innocence--that is, if she's innocent.

An enjoyable read, but not as good as the other books in the "Under Suspicion" series. I felt that not much happened until about 2/3rds of the way through the book, and I had a hard time connecting to or feeling a lot of sympathy for Casey.

A bit rushed in the end, but another great read by Mary (MHC). The new author (Alafair Burk)also add's her legal expertise background to make this story a progression from the 70's and 80's era novels we are used to from MHC. You can hear the new Authors voice throughout the read, adding a younger perspective of the drama as it unfolds.

Please give some credit to Alafair Burke, since she co-wrote the book.

Not terrible, though I knew who did it within a few chapters.

Another good read from Mary Higgins Clark. If you haven't read any of her books, this is an author you should check out if you like mysteries.

Another good read from Mary Higgins Clark. Believe there's going to be another book in this series because of the way it ended.

Always enjoy the light mysteries that Mary Higgins Clark is famous for and this is no exception. This tale keeps you reading until the end when the final twist is uncovered.
