- The third thrilling installment in the bestselling Under Suspicion series from #1 New York Times bestselling author and “Queen of Suspense” Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke—television producer Laurie Moran puts everything on the line to help a woman she thinks was wrongfully convicted of murder.
- Casey Carter was convicted of murdering her fiancé—famed philanthropist Hunter Raleigh III—fifteen years ago. And Casey claims—has always claimed—she’s innocent. Although she was charged and served out her sentence in prison, she is still living “under suspicion.” She hears whispers at the grocery store. She can’t get a job. Even her own mother treats her like she’s guilty. Her story attracts the attention of Laurie Moran and the Under Suspicion news team—it’s Casey’s last chance to finally clear her name, and Laurie pledges to exonerate her.
- With Alex Buckley taking a break from the show—cooling his potential romance with Laurie—Under Suspicion introduces a new on-air host named Ryan Nichols, a young legal whiz with a Harvard Law degree, Supreme Court clerkship, experience as a federal prosecutor, and regular stints on the cable news circuit. He’s got a big reputation and the attitude to match it. Ryan has no problems with steering—and stealing—the show, and even tries to stop Laurie from taking on Casey’s case because he’s so certain she’s guilty.
- An egomaniacal new co-host, a relentless gossip columnist who seems to have all the dirt (and a surprising informant), and Casey’s longstanding bad reputation: Laurie must face this and more to do what she believes is right, to once and for all prove Casey’s innocence—that is, if she’s innocent… The Sleeping Beauty Killer will keep you guessing until the very end.

“I read the first review in which the reader suspected a certain person very early in the book. That person was my first guess, too, but I wasn’t sure that my guess was correct. I would buy the book anyway because of the complicated plot and because of Laurie’s continuing romance, for which any incurable romantic would want a happy resolution. There are so many characters that led to twists and turns in the plot. And yes, I plan to buy the next book in the series when it comes out. This is not the very best Mary Higgins Clark/Alafaire Burke, but I still love this series.” By Liese A. Thomas
“This book isn’t as good as the others in this series. The main character seemed overwhelmed by her project. One of the plot points was predictable. The ending was interesting and well done, but that was the last 20 pages. The romance between the two main characters is getting old and tiresome. Basically, it was an OK book, but not one that is on my “reread” list.” By Fryknfrack
