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.
I had high expectations for my first Mary Higgins Clark book, did not expect it to be my first and last one. The book could have been a lot shorter if the author did not continually repeat herself and remind us of what she just wrote in the chapter before over and over again. I felt like she thinks her readers are stupid and unable to recall the characters plot line for more than 10 minutes. I finished the book but it was very frustrating and painful. Never again. I wanted lo love this author but no.
My mother suggested this book to me because Mary Higgins Clark was an easy breezy read and Higgins Clark was an easy read. The chapters were short which I like because I always feel like I'm getting further along in the book. But I also found the book very repetitive. There were four main characters in the book that had a relationship with a deceased character and we heard their story at least 3 times by 3 different characters. But I guess that's part of what makes this book an easy read. I could listen to it at night set the sleep timer and not really miss anything when I woke up. I normally read something a little bit more hardcore like the Butterfly Garden by Dot Hutchison or You By Carolyn Kepnes.
This book was just this side of boring compared to those. The narrator was ehh. The 4 main charaters were woman and it was difficult to determine which woman was speaking from one chapter to the next.
