About The Book

The latest thrilling entry in the bestselling Under Suspicion series by Queen of Suspense Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke.

Two identical brothers, both handsome, intelligent and popular recent college graduates, seemingly perfect in every way. That is, until the shocking summer night when one of them killed their parents in cold blood. The other has an iron-clad alibi, but which twin was where during the murders? And is it possible the two of them planned the perfect crime together?

Years later, the case is still unsolved, and the brothers are long estranged. Each of them claims that the other is responsible for the deaths of their parents, and they turn to television producer Laurie Moran and her team to reinvestigate. But as the Under Suspicion crew gets closer to the truth, the danger that was assumed to be left in the past finds its way into the present . . .

Featuring chilling suspense, a cast of characters whom loyal readers have come to love, and a final jaw-dropping twist, It Had to Be You is not to be missed.
