This is the first MHC book I've read. It was definitely a good read. There are 2 plots going on in this story and both were good. Nicholas Spencer is developing an anticancer vaccine but then disappears and millions of dollars are missing from the company. Carley DeCarlo is a reporter who is assigned to the case. She doesn't believe that Nicholas was a con man who swindled people out of money to invest in the Gen-Stone Pharmaceutical company. She also believes after investigations that someone in Gen-Stone was purposely sabotaging the anticancer vaccine.
To make matters more interesting there is a psychopath on the loose. Ned's wife died in a horrible accident and he believes Nicholas Spencer and everyone connected is to blame. Ned sold his house and invested money into Gen-Stone and then lost everything when the scandal came out. How many people will he hurt or kill before he can be stopped?

I think this book is a little different than some of her other books. It's about a reporter named Carley that has been asked by her stepsister to prove that she didn't help her husband steal the life savings of his employees. Carley herself becomes a target herself when she starts searching for the truth.

Nicholas Spencer, the charismatic head of a company that has developed an anticancer vaccine, disappears without a trace. A reporter, Carley DeCarlo is assigned the story. Word that Spencer, if alive, has made off with hugh sums of money, including the life savings of many employees, doesn't do much to change Carley's already low opinion of Spencer's wife, Lynn, who is also Carly's stepsister and whom everyone believes is involved. But when Lynn's life is threatened, she asks Carley to help her prove that she wasn't her husband's accomplice. As the facts unfold, however, Carley herself becomes the target of a dangerous, sinister group that will stop at nothing to get what they want.
Attention holding action, good, easy reading. enjoyable

I have read only a few of Mary Higgins Clark's books, but have enjoyed each one. This one is no exception. This is a mystery involving the death of Nicholas Spencer, head of a medical research company, that has purportedly developed a vaccine for cancer. There are lots of twists and turns throughout this book, including a disgruntled stockholder on a vengeful rampage. I couldn't wait to see how this book ended.
