Ellie Cavanaugh was 7 years old when her older sister was murdered near their home in New York's Westchester County. It was young Ellie's tearful testimony that put Rob Westerfield, the 19-year-old scion of a prominent family , in jail despite the existence of 2 other viable suspects. 22 years later, Westerfield is paroled ... "chilling story of murder that reaches the heights of suspense while exploring the depths of the criminal mind."

Slipped under the door of her Georgetown home, the note was an ominous reminder of Pay's past. The beautiful young t.v. journalist had come to high-powered Washington to produce a TV series. her subject: Senator Abigail Jennings, slated for nomination as the 1st woman vice president of the U.S. I think this is one of Mary Higgins Clark's best literary efforts. A good read!
