Publisher's Summary

A collection of short stories from the number-one New York Times best-selling "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 listeners 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 40 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 listen and glimpse into the evolution of the remarkable career of the "Queen of Suspense".

    "Must have while driving on short or long trips."

    Really enjoyed it. Kept me wanting to hear more. Mary Higgins Clark has been my favorite author since where are the children.

    "Not the Normal"

    This was an okay listen. It was fun in that these were short stories written in the early years for Mary Higgins. It was disappointing in that I expected a story. My Fault, I know. That being said the shorts were okay.
