Publisher's Summary

Ellie Cavanaugh was only seven years old when her 15-year-old sister, Andrea, was murdered near their home in a rural village in New York's Westchester County. There were three suspects: Rob Westerfield, 19-year-old scion of a wealthy, prominent family whom Andrea has been secretly dating; Paul Stroebel, a 16-year-old schoolmate, who had a crush on Andrea, and Will Nebels, a local handyman in his 40s.

It was Ellie who had led her parents to a hideout in which Andrea's body was found -- a secret hideaway where she met her friends. And it was Ellie who was blamed by her parents for her sister's death for not telling them about this place the night Andrea was missing. Ellie's testimony eventually led to the conviciton of the man she was convinced was the killer. Steadfastly denying his guilt, he spent the next 22 years in prison.

When he comes up for parole, Ellie, now an investigative reporter for an Atlanta newspaper, protests his release. Nonetheless, the convicted killer is set free and returns to Oldham. Determined to thwart his attempts to whitewash his reputation, Ellie also returns to Oldham, intent on creating a Website and writing a book that will conclusively prove his guilt. As she delves deeper into her research, she uncovers horrifying and unknown facts that shed new light on her sister's murder. With each discovery, she comes closer to a confrontation with a desperate killer.

    "Really? This is what all the fuss is about"
    What would have made Daddy's Little Girl better?

    A believable story.


    What could Mary Higgins Clark have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not been hackneyed and predictable.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jan Maxwell?

    I'll give her one more shot, but only one, to redeem herself.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    For most of the time it was laughter at the horribly badly conceived story. I waited for the narrator to be proven wrong at the end. My wait was in vain. I thought, a character this loathsome has to be shown to be full of it at the end. Nope. I think--and this is the part that really got me--that we were actually supposed to identify with her. Ha! She's arrogant and sloppy and conceited and has the worst instincts of any character I've ever encountered in a book. Really dreadful!


    Any additional comments?

    I know verisimilitude isn't a high priority in books like this, but seriously, this was just plain dreadful. Any "investigative reporter" who behaves this unethically with such a complete agenda from the get go would be denied publication in any source shy of the National Enquirer. Maybe that's the intended audience. Nobody else would read this tripe and find it compelling.

    "Best Of Mary Higgins Clark"
    Where does Daddy's Little Girl rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Among top ten


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not so much on the edge of my seat but kept my mind really busy


    What about Jan Maxwell’s performance did you like?

    She was able to fall into character very believably


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Rewarding!


    Any additional comments?

    Great mystery without vulgarity!

    "Good not great"

    That is tough for me to say since I appreciate the morals that Mary Higgins Clark uses in her books. No vulgar language, lewd sex, etc. This was "just" good for me not great. The story line at times was weak or predictable.

    Having said that I am still glad that I purchased and listened to this one.
