Description
A one-of-a-kind mystery collection that showcases the immense storytelling talent #1 New York Times bestselling author Mary Higgins Clark has honed over her tremendous career—including a bone-chilling, previously unpublished short story forty years in the making.In 1974, master storyteller Mary Higgins Clark began writing a novella inspired by the dark side of the New York City fashion world. She then put the unfinished manuscript aside to write Where Are the Children?, the novel that would launch her career. Forty years later, Clark returned to that novella and wrote its ending. Now—for the first time ever—Death Wears a Beauty Mask is available for readers along with a stunning array of short fiction that spans her remarkable career. From Clark's first-ever published story (1956's "Stowaway"), to classic tales featuring some of her most memorable characters, Death Wears A Beauty Mask And Other Stories is a jewel of a collection brimming over with the chills and heart-pounding drama we've come to expect from the Queen of Suspense. Death Wears A Beauty Mask And Other Stories is a spine-tingling read and a special glimpse into the evolution of a world-class writing career.

        April 27, 2015
        MWA Grand Master Clark assembles a selection of nine previously published tales, including her first published story (1958's "Stowaway") and one long original tale—begun in 1972 but only finished recently—that lends its name to the volume. Blending Clark's trademark mystery, suspense, and romance, "Death Wears a Beauty Mask" focuses on famous model Alexandra Saunders. When Alexandra disappears, her lookalike sister, Janice, and Janice's new husband, Michael Broad, try to find her. Since three sinister men are also on Alexandra's trail and one is a killer, Janice and Michael must get to her first. Clark's sleuths range from lottery-rich oldsters Alvirah and Willy Meehan in "The Cape Cod Masquerade" to former U.S. president Henry Parker Britland IV and his wife, Sandra, who use his still potent influence to rescue his former secretary of state, Thomas Shipman, from a murder charge in "Definitely, A Crime of Passion." This collection nicely illustrates Clark's range and superlative storytelling talent.
