Publisher's Summary

In this exciting thriller from Mary Higgins Clark, the number-one New York Times best-selling "Queen of Suspense", a news reporter tries to find her birth mother just as she is assigned to cover the high-profile trial of a woman accused of murdering her wealthy husband.

Television journalist Delaney Wright is on the brink of stardom after she begins covering a sensational murder trial for the six p.m. news. She should be thrilled, yet her growing desire to locate her birth mother consumes her thoughts. When Delaney's friends - Alvirah Meehan and her husband, Willy - offer to look into the mystery surrounding her birth, they uncover a shocking secret they do not want to reveal.

On trial for murder is Betsy Grant, widow of a wealthy doctor who has been an Alzheimer's victim for eight years. When her once-upon-a-time celebrity lawyer urges her to accept a plea bargain, Betsy refuses: She will go to trial to prove her innocence.

Betsy's stepson, Alan Grant, bides his time nervously as the trial begins. His substantial inheritance hangs in the balance - his only means of making good on payments he owes his ex-wife, his children, and increasingly angry creditors.

As the trial unfolds and the damning evidence against Betsy piles up, Delaney is convinced that Betsy is not guilty and frantically tries to prove her innocence.

A true classic from Mary Higgins Clark, As Time Goes By is a thrilling story by a master of the genre.

    "Excellent story"

    As all of Mary Higgins Clark books, As Time Goes By has an Excellent story. With the audible version allows me to listen to the story without having the book in my hands. Thank you Ms. Clark.

    "LOVED IT!"

    I loved it and just couldn't stop listening to it. I know I'll have bags under me eyes from staying up so late. But I don't think I've read(when I used to read books) any Mary Higgins Clark's books I didn't like.

    Story
    "A lot of recycled plot points..."

    This was the least original of any of MHC's works--in fact, it was weirdly similar to one she wrote a few years ago--spouse with early onset dementia murdered, caregiver spouse blamed (it was the reverse in her prior book) and a thief in the house that night that has new information. So it was predictable, been written before (but clearly by someone else as this had a distinctly different/more modern voice). Jan Maxwell was fine as the narrator and it was entertaining enough, but overall, It felt like something I'd heard before.

    Story
    "Plot is way too obvious"

    This mystery lacked the cleverness and twist that makes things interesting. I thought the plot was way too obvious and it was too easy to figure out what happened way too early in the story. Also the characters were stick figures, just stereotypes.
