What did she see and what does if have to with the disapperance of DR. Highley, famous for his work "curing" infertile women.
A minor road accident landed county prosdcutor Katie DeMaio in Westlake Hospital. That night, from her window, she thought she saw a man load a woman's body into the trunk of a car..or was it just a sleeping pill-induced nightmare? At work the next day, Katie began investigating a sucide that looked more like murder. Initial evidence pointed elsewhere, but medical examiner Richard Carroll saw a trail leading Dr. Edgar Highley. He suspected that the famous doctor's work "curing" infertile women was more than cibtriversuak-that it was deceitful, depraved, and often deadly. But before Richard could tell Katie his fears, she left the office for the weekend and an appointment for routine surgery...in Dr.Highley's operating room.

Wow can this woman write a mystery! This is the third or fourth novel that I have read of hers and I have to admit that she has quickly become one of my favorite Mystery writers. Every single one of the books that I have read by her I have not been able to set down, at all! They keep you interested and they keep you in suspense. You are never quite sure who is the villain or really what is going to happen. Love it! I will keep reading until I read every single one of her published books! Thanks to Mary Higgins Clark! Nobody could ever replace her writing. She's like a V.C. Andrews but in another genre!
My very first MHC book. Fast paced and character development moves. Plot good. BUT, we knew who the bad guy was from the beginning and it took the fun out of reading a mystery. Book only for MHC fans. Rad about a hundred times in fair condition. Anyone recommend a 5 star MHC book for a newbie to her work?
