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

A bit rushed in the end, but another great read by Mary (MHC). The new author (Alafair Burk)also add's her legal expertise background to make this story a progression from the 70's and 80's era novels we are used to from MHC. You can hear the new Authors voice throughout the read, adding a younger perspective of the drama as it unfolds.

Not terrible, though I knew who did it within a few chapters.

Another good read from Mary Higgins Clark. If you haven't read any of her books, this is an author you should check out if you like mysteries.

Another good read from Mary Higgins Clark. Believe there's going to be another book in this series because of the way it ended.

Always enjoy the light mysteries that Mary Higgins Clark is famous for and this is no exception. This tale keeps you reading until the end when the final twist is uncovered.
