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.

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.
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.
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.
This is my first time reading Mary Higgins Clark. I figured I couldn't go wrong.( Best selling author.) This story was boring, cliché, and predictable. When it came time for the " grand who done it moment, I was so uninterested I didn't even finish listening.The characters were typical and so obvious. They were not deep, complex, or even likable. The plot was so predictable, and the way the story was told through the reporter doing a TV show was horrifically unbelievable. All of a sudden the killer confesses just because! No particular reason just to end the book. This was so bad,I thought I could immediately quit my day job and write better than this. This was one of those stories where they have to lead you by the nose because it isn't clever enough to subtly let the plot develop in a way that would be believable or interesting enough to figure out.
They were all 1 dimensional and obvious. This is murder mystery for kids 101.
I often read MHC, and I enjoy them. Not so much this book. There were many characters, and it would have been easier to keep track of them reading the book rather than listening.
The performance was good. It was easy to distinguish between characters - and there were a lot of them.
I'm a writer and I love books of all types
As a long time fan of this author I can say this has been one of her best to date.
The plot keeps you on your seat waiting for the next chapter! she keeps her crown as the
queen of suspense!
Mary Higgins Clark writes great "whodunits" and this was no disappointment. I have read every book she has written and look forward to many more.
As with all of MHC's books the suspense keeps you guessing almost to the last page. In addition to the usual young successful woman making her way in the world who is being stalked by a crazed killer, this story added the dimension of a small child also being stalked.
This audio book is the worst! I bought it for "immersion" reading, but it often seemed that the narrator was reading a different version of the story. Most annoying was the fact that it continuously froze up.
Yeah, pre-order her next book!
