From the reigning “Queen of Suspense” and No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Mary Higgins Clark, comes a gripping new mystery that begins when a handsome Manhattan ER doctor is brazenly murdered in front of his young son in a city playground. Only three-year-old Timmy saw the face of his father’s killer, and five years later his piercing blue eyes still haunt Timmy’s dreams. His heartbreaking shriek, 'Blue Eyes killed my Daddy' and the killer's shouted warning, 'Tell your mother she's next, then it's your turn', is overheard by an elderly woman, the only witness to the crime.
Now, five years later, Laurie, Timmy's mother 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 . . .
Fast-paced, exciting, and expertly plotted, I’VE GOT YOU UNDER MY SKIN is Mary Higgins Clark at her best – a master storyteller keeping readers on the edge of their seats with the heart-pounding suspense that has made her books international bestsellers.
