Présentation de l'éditeur

When Laurie Moran’s husband was brutally murdered, only three-year-old Timmy saw the face of his father’s killer. Five years later his piercing blue eyes still haunt Timmy’s dreams. Laurie is haunted by more—the killer’s threat to her son as he fled the scene: “Tell your mother she’s next, then it’s your turn . . .”

Now Laurie is dealing with murder again, this time as the producer of a true-crime, cold-case television show. The series will launch with the twenty-year-old unsolved murder of Betsy Powell. Betsy, a socialite, was found suffocated in her bed after a gala celebrating the graduation of her daughter and three friends. The sensational murder was news nationwide. Reopening the case in its lavish setting and with the cooperation of the surviving guests that night, Laurie is sure to have a hit on her hands. But when the estranged friends begin filming, it becomes clear each is hiding secrets . . . small and large.

And a pair of blue eyes is watching events unfold, too . . .

En savoir plus sur l'auteur

Née et élevée à New York, Mary Higgins Clark, d'origine irlandaise, revendique l'influence sur son écriture de cet héritage culturel : "Les Irlandais sont des conteurs-nés" rappelle-t-elle souvent. Et pourtant, rien ne prédestinait Mary Higgins Clark à devenir écrivain. Elle a dix ans quand son père meurt d'une attaque, laissant sa femme très démunie pour élever la petite Mary et ses deux fils. Malgré de brillantes études, Mary, à la sortie du lycée, s'inscrit dans un cours de secrétariat pour trouver du travail le plus rapidement possible, afin d'aider sa famille. Pendant trois ans, elle travaille dans une agence de publicité. Une envie de voyages la pousse à s'engager comme hôtesse de l'air à la Pan Am. Elle y restera un an avant d'épouser Warren Clark, qu'elle connaît depuis l'âge de seize ans. Peu après son mariage, elle commence à écrire des nouvelles qu'elle envoie aux journaux. Les refus sont nombreux mais Mary s'obstine et, en 1956, Extension Magazine publie enfin une de ses nouvelles. En 1964, Warren Clark meurt brusquement la laissant seule avec cinq enfants. Mary retrouve du travail et écrit des scripts pour la radio. Son premier livre publié, une biographie de George Washington, ne sera pas un succès? "Le livre était déjà en solde avant même d'être sorti de chez l'imprimeur ! " commente-t-elle non sans humour. Elle décide alors d'écrire un suspense. Ce sera La Maison du guet (Where are the children) qui devient immédiatement un best-seller. Le succès accompagnera tous ses livres par la suite. En France, les éditions Albin Michel publient en 1979 La Nuit du Renard donnant par la même occasion le coup d'envoi à la collection Spécial Suspense qui compte à ce jour 19 des 21 livres écrits par Mary Higgins Clark. Après ses premiers succès, Mary Higgins Clark qui s'était beaucoup consacrée à l'éducation de ses enfants, décide de rattraper le temps perdu : elle entre à l'Université de Fordham au Lincoln Center et passe un diplôme de philosophie. Elle a par ailleurs présidé en 1988 l'International Crime Congress, à New York. En 1987, elle était présidente du Mystery Writers of America dont elle a été un membre actif pendant de nombreuses années. La reine du suspense est l'auteur féminin du genre qui vend le plus de livres aux Etats-Unis : plus de 50 millions en "hard cover". Ses romans sont des best-sellers dans le monde entier, en France notamment avec plus de 20 millions d'exemplaires vendus. Mary Higgins Clark a reçu en 1980 le Grand Prix de Littérature policière pour La Nuit du renard et en 1998 le Prix du Festival du film de Deauville. En 1999, un sondage paru dans Le Monde la donnait en seconde position des auteurs les plus lus par les jeunes de 18 ans.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Clark Is Amazing 3 avril 2014
Par boswell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I didn't realize, until I read some of the other reviews of this book, that Clark is 86 years old. That fact makes it even more amazing to me how she can still write such top quality books. In fact, I thought this one was somewhere in the top 5 or so books she has written - almost as good as some of her great initial works like Where are the Children and A Stranger is Watching. The way she interweaves two very interesting mysteries, and the tension she creates as to both, was absolutely riveting. I hope Ms. Clark is able to continue writing well into her 90's as has PD James, because her work is still at such a high level. A must read for any Clark fan (and a good introduction to a great writer for someone who may not have read any of her books).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Long-lived author returns to the old paths of success 2 avril 2014
Par Denis Vukosav - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
‘I've Got You Under My Skin’ written by Mary Higgins Clark is a new novel from a queen of suspense novels, which for four decades entertains readers with her books full of twists and turns. Although her few last novels were of slightly lower quality compared to her best novels of the nineties such as ‘All around the Town’ and ‘I'll Be Seeing You’ with this one Higgins Clark seems to hit again at the center.

The story starts with three-year-old Timmy Moran being the only witness of his father murder that will like a nightmare haunt this boy for many years since unfortunate event happened. On the other hand Tommy’s mother Laurie all those years is haunted by the words that the killer sent with a little boy that two of them are next. ..

Laurie, who in present time works as a producer of TV crime show, as subject of her series deals with the murder known throughout the country of Betsy Powell that remained unresolved for 20 years. Betsy was killed in her bedroom after coming home from the party where she celebrated entry into the adult world of her daughter after she graduated.

Once Laurie for the purpose of her series will reopen the story that has long stood intact, with the help of the people with whom Betsy spent the evening some long-hidden secrets will start to uncover. In addition, Laurie will gradually see the mystery about tragedy that marked her life begins to unravel as well…

To talk about the style of the world-famous author who has wrote fifty novels and behind her in her long career has numerous television and movie adaptations is unnecessary because it is fully known.

However, what Higgins Clark managed to do with this novel that will bring her back into sharp focus is that she delivered a good story and well-made and believable characters for whose fate reader will tremble to the end of the novel.

I cannot boast that I have read all the novels of this fruitful novel author, who publishes in the annual rhythm, but comparing to those I have read (especially her older titles), ‘I've Got You Under My Skin’ is emerging as one of the best choices.

Therefore, recommendations should go to all lovers of suspense genre and especially to the author fans while we can hope that with this novel long-lived author returns to the old paths to success.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 ONE OF MHC'S BEST NOVELS IN RECENT YEARS! 1 avril 2014
Par the GreatReads! - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I've Got You Under My Skin by Mary Higgins Clark is a thrilling and beautifully written crime mystery about a widowed mother and her son haunted by a nightmare. Five years after the death of her husband, Laurie Moran and her young son Timmy are still living in the shadows of that fateful day, always fearful of her husband's killer, who threatened to come back for them.

When her professional work demanded something creative, Laurie settled for unsolved crime cases for her television show, hoping to strike gold. She got more than she bargained for. She and Timmy are perilously perched as the killer strikes again, in the process, giving the cold case a chance to be solved or the killer making good on his threat to Timmy, "Tell your mother she's next, then it's your turn..."

While Mary Higgins Clark is a good story-teller, some of her recent books have not been really that appealing. I've Got You Under My Skin is one of her finer books and offers a chance to redeem herself. The mystery is wrapped beautifully while there is some depth to the story. The characters are both fascinating and likeable. I'm sure many readers will really enjoy this latest mystery from the #1 international and New York Times bestselling author.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Don't waste your time 10 mai 2014
Par Katie S - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I never write reviews for books, ever... but I felt the need to write a review on this book simply as a warning. Don't read it, it's a total waste of time. I've read MHC books before and enjoyed them, but this... this book made me angry. I spent time reading it, hoping/wishing/assuming something interesting was going to happen and NOTHING did. There were no twists, turns or suspense. The characters were terrible and poorly developed (seriously, why was every graduate so insanely creepy?) I assumed, because the book seemed so one-dimensional and off center, that something was going to happen to tie everything together. Nothing did. I love mysteries - and this wasn't a mystery. This was a flimsy who-done-it that could have been written by a high schooler.... Don't hold your breath for any amazing plot twists... the killer(s) are revealed in the final three pages and they are either 1. completely obvious from the beginning or 2. not even a character in the book. Just awful. I returned this book immediately after I read it.... I've never done that before.

And also - can I just say honestly - the premise for the reality show was the most ridiculous premise I've ever heard. "Hey.. remember that crime from 20 years ago? Let's get everyone together again and make them wear the SAME OUTFITS and pose for the same pictures!!"

I can't. I just can't.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I couldn't put it down 3 avril 2014
Par Pamela McCarter - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I truly enjoyed this book. I am an avid reader and love trying to predict who the killer is. 99.9% of the time I get it before I am half way through the book. I was bouncing back and forth trying to figure it out. I never came to a conclusion before the book told me.
