Well written mystery that holds unexpected surprises and suspense until the end. Haunting - kept singing the "you belong to me" for months!
A friend gave this to me since I had never read a MHC book before. After about 30 pages I remembered why I had never read one... I don't like murder mysteries becuase they are just as similar as romance novels, they are predictable, lack depth and offer only superficial characters and relationships. At any rate, I finished the book and it was fine for what it was.
YOU BELONG TO ME
A killer who targets lonely women on cruise ships is at the center of Mary Higgins Clark's newest thriller You Belong to Me, a masterful combination of page-turning suspense and classic mystery.
When Dr. Susan Chandler decides to use her daily radio talk show to explore the phenomenon of women who disappear and are later found to have become victims of killers who prey on the lonely and insecure, she has no idea that she is exposing herself--and those closest to her--to the very terror that she hopes to warn others against.
Susan sets out to determine who is responsible for an attempt on the life of a woman who called in to the show offering information on the mysterious disappearance from a cruise ship, years before, of Regina Clausen, a wealthy investment advisor. Soon Susan finds herself in a race against time, for not only does the killer stalk these lonely women, but he seems intent on eliminating anyone who can possible further Susan's investigation.
As her search intensifies, Susan finds herself confronted with the realization that one of the men who have become important figures in her life might actually be the killer. And as she gets closer to uncovering his identity, she realizes almost too late that the hunter has become the hunted, and that she herself is marked for murder.
"The Queen of Supsense", Mary Higgins Clark, does it again with a novel about murder on the high seas. Years ago, Regina Clausen set sail on a cruise, and vanished into thin air. Now, Dr. Susan Chandler is thrust into the middle of a mystery after a guest for her radio show writes a book about missing woman. With the help of Mrs. Clausen, Regina's mother, Dr. Chandler must uncover what happened on that cruise ship. The results are shocking--a man who targets lonely cruise ship victims, his calling card a locket with the words "You Belong to Me." In a race against time, Dr. Chandler must help uncover the idenity of the serial killer before he targets his next victim. This book was EXCLLENT, I loved every page of the novel, and was startled at the unearthing of the idenity of the killer--I never would have suspected! If you enjoy Mary Higgins Clark, or muder mystries, this book is for you!
A book that was suggested to me. I enjoyed it. Nice twist.
