Laurie Moran’s husband was killed in front of her son- the murder remains unsolved and the killer warned that he’s coming for her and her son next. Besides this, she tries to live her lives as normally as possible, for her son’s sake. Laurie’s father is fiercely protective of his daughter and grandson. A retired police officer, he keeps an eye on his family’s every move. He has a bad feeling about the new documentary his daughter is producing. It is about the unsolved gala murder from 20 years before. This documentary brings Laurie closer then ever before to her husband’s killer and reveals secrets that have been kept for over 20 years.
Wow, another five star read! This book is actually slightly similar to Dirty Little Secrets (the last book I read). This book also has a group of people who each have a secret they are trying desperately to keep. They all have a motive and some of them have kept their motive secret for over 20 years, but the documentary brings all of their secrets out. I really enjoyed seeing each person’s guilt- even those who were not guilty of the crime were glad she’s dead (very like Dirty Little Secrets!). I also liked that there was two story lines going- you’re kept guessing about whether the killer of Laurie’s husband is connected to the documentary. But, the story is told from the point of view of all characters. So even though some parts are told from the killer’s point of view, we still don’t know their real identity or motive. There is no slowing in the story, it draws you in from the start and never drags on. Absolutely love Mary Higgins Clark and would recommend her books to anyone who likes thrillers.
