The extraordinary new novel from Queen of Suspense Mary Higgins Clark & Alafair Burke
Falsely accused victim? Or cold-blooded killer?
Casey Carter was convicted of murdering her fiancé fifteen years ago. But Casey claims – has always claimed – she’s innocent. And although she was charged and served out her sentence in prison, she is still living ‘under suspicion’. She hears whispers at the grocery store. She can’t get a job. Even her own mother treats her like she’s guilty.
Her story attracts the attention of Laurie Moran and the Under Suspicion news team – it’s Casey’s last chance to finally clear her name, and Laurie pledges to exonerate her.
Now Laurie must face an egomaniacal new co-host, a relentless gossip columnist who seems to have all the dirt and Casey’s longstanding bad reputation to once and for all prove Casey’s innocence –that is, if she’s innocent…
The Sleeping Beauty Killer is another riveting page-turner from the Queen of Suspense Mary Higgins Clark and her dazzling partner-in-crime, Alafair Burke.
