Publisher's Summary

From the number-one New York Times best-selling "Queen of Suspense" comes a thrilling novel about missing billions, a disgraced financier, and those determined to learn the truth at any cost.

As the sole assistant to a famous upscale interior designer, Lane Harmon, mother to five-year-old Katie, is accustomed to visiting opulent homes around the tristate area. A born optimist, Lane finds the glimpse into these gilded worlds fascinating and loves the reward of exceeding the expectations of their often-demanding owners. When she is called to assist in redecorating a modest townhouse in Bergen County, she knows the job is unusual. Then she learns the home belongs to the wife of a notorious and disgraced financier named Parker Bennett.

Parker Bennett has been missing for two years. He dropped out of sight just before it was discovered that the $5 billion in the fund he had been managing had vanished. Bennett had gone out on his sailboat in the Caribbean. Was it suicide, or had he staged his disappearance? The scandal around his name has not died down. His clients and the federal government all want to trace the money and find Bennett if he is still alive.

Lane is surprised to find herself moved by Mrs. Bennett's calm dignity and apparently sincere belief in her husband's innocence. Gradually Lane finds herself drawn to Eric, the Bennetts' son, who is similarly determined to prove that his father is not guilty. Lane doesn't know that the closer she gets to the Bennetts, the more she puts her life - and her daughter's life - in jeopardy.

With the hair-raising storytelling skill that has made her America's "Queen of Suspense", Mary Higgins Clark combines a headline-making financial scandal and a breathtaking tale of deception and betrayal into one of her finest novels.

    "What a mind teaser"

    I thought I knew good from bad but Clark fooled me. I've loved her books for years. This is my first on audio it's great. On your iPhone you can take it with you everywhere. She had many to choose from. Start listening. 😃

    "not her best"

    I liked the book, but it was my least favorite MHC book. More murder and mayhem, less romance.

    Story
    "Slow and Predictable"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    this is not a book that is worth reading. It is slow, more of a cheap harlequin book offers no suspense or mystery. Nothing like the other books I've read from this author.


    Has The Melody Lingers On turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Only from this author if this is where her books are heading.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jan Maxwell?

    the narrator was fine.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Melody Lingers On?

    the entire book
