Title: Death Wears a Beauty Mask
Author: Mary Higgins Clark
Review: Well if you like Mary Higgins Clark you will enjoy this book of short stories - I found it easy to read and since the stories were short it was easy to put down and walk away after reading one and then coming back and reading another.
The stories are old and some felt dated - but I love Victorian romance and that is dated- right? Well they were all good - some better than others - the first story was a bit longer then I think was needed - but it had suspense.
One story was sad and yet uplifting at the end - I read that one first off - I decided to skip around as I read this book and the airplane story is a good one and I hope I would be willing to risk everything to save a life if needed.
I enjoy reading mystery authors and this one is good - I also really enjoy her series with Alafair Burke- Short stories from an author you know and love -
I received this item for an honest review.
Synopsis: A collection of short stories from the #1 New York Times bestselling “Queen of Suspense” Mary Higgins Clark, including the never-before-published novella Death Wears a Beauty Mask.
From Clark’s first-ever published story (1956’s “Stowaway”), to classic tales featuring Alvirah and Willy, My Gal Sunday and many more, Death Wears a Beauty Mask and Other Stories gives readers the chance to revisit the short story highlights from the “Queen of Suspense.” The jewel of this collection is the novella showcasing the dazzling and dangerous world of high fashion in 1970s New York City: Death Wears a Beauty Mask, which Mary began in 1974 and put aside to write Where Are the Children, the book that launched her career. Mary returned to Death Wears a Beauty Mask nearly forty years later and the result is spectacular.
Featuring the same chills and heart-pounding drama we’ve come to expect from a Mary Higgins Clark title, and including an exclusive author’s introduction, Death Wears a Beauty Mask and Other Stories is a spine-tingling read and glimpse into the evolution of the remarkable career of the “Queen of Suspense.”
