In this suspenseful audiobook from the number-one New York Times best-selling author Mary Higgins Clark, a Manhattan ER doctor is brazenly murdered in front of his young son in a city playground. Five years later, his killer is still at large.
Meanwhile his widow, Laurie Moran, is now an award-winning TV producer. Still haunted by her husband's murder, she has been raising their son alone. Laurie and her TV crew have just received the green light to produce a new cold-case series. Revisiting unsolved crimes one at a time, she and her TV crew will gather a victim's friends and family, who have lived under suspicion of guilt for many years. By getting paid to reenact the crime on TV, each will have the chance to clear their name unless, of course, someone is guilty. The first case centers on the murder of a wealthy Westchester matron, who was killed overnight while her college-aged daughter and her three best friends were having a sleepover following their celebratory graduation party. Now grown, the four women reunite to re-create the scene of the crime.
From the reigning Queen of Suspense comes a fascinating mystery that once again demonstrates a true mastery of the craft that has made her books international bestsellers. Fast-paced, exciting, and expertly plotted, I've Got You Under My Skin is Mary Higgins Clark at her best.

Overall I enjoyed the book, even though the characters voices of Alison and Lorie were a little too whining for my taste. But overall, it was good.
Less charcter development. Over and over
Find another style, getting to be cookie cutter books!
Outstanding. She was the only reason I finished the book.
Think twice before you buy
Better plot. This was the worst storyline ever.
Voice was ok, somewhat boring to listen to. Often put me to sleep, but I'm not sure if that was due to her voice or the boring plot.
I look forward to all of Mary Higgins Clark's books. This one was the first one I really didn't enjoy. The storyline was awful and predictable. Most of the characters were annoying. Very disappointing.
Yes, I love Mary Higgins Clark books! I just can't stand to listen to the narrator's voice so I will be buying the book to read myself.
Anyone else. I am not really familiar with other narrators as this is my first audio book.
I might try another of MHC's books.
This was my first MHC book and I found that it was a good book/story, just not a "Great" one. Wasn't real suspenseful and I was able to figure out the killer less than half way thru. She did a great job on character development and you were able to understand the characters present day actions as a result of their past story line. Worth listening to.
She's an excellent narrator.
I've listened to and read by eye quite a few of MH Clarks work. The thing I always like best about her novels is that they all take place in Manhattan (all the ones I've read, that is). I like the feel of her stories and they make me feel like I"m in Manhattan too. It's very light entertainment. However, I did not think this was up to her usual quality. It was so transparent that I found myself skipping. I read the entire book, but quite rapidly and with a lot of skipping.
You were kept guessing until the end of the book who committed the crimes. Lots of interesting characters, The reader often used a little person's voice. You couldn't have told the difference between the eight year old and the eighteen year old by her voice. She would often slip into a child's voice when the character was an adult. Her voice is pleasant but I don't like "baby talk" unless it's appropriate.
Mary Higgins Clark is the Best writer in the world. The ending left me surprised and speechless. Mary is brilliant at making all of her characters seem like the criminal so it makes the reader curious to read or listen to the next chapters until you finish the entire novel. I listen to her books while driving. You will not be disappointed in this novel! This is a great book with tons of twists and turns!
story had a good line and plot. it was typical of a Mary Higgins Clark novel. it kind of drug on in park but with four main characters Plus extras needed to get the whole back story
I was looking forward to this book that was highly recommended to me. I was disappointed at how boring and slow the plot was. One could guess who the murderer was early on. Story line is much like John Walsh's man hunt program dedicated to cold cases. Narrator reads slowly with nearly monotone.
