Publisher's Summary

Winning the lottery has made Willy and Alvirah Meehan famous. Now that she sports a stylish hairdo and knows how to dress like the wealthy lady she is, Alvirah quite enjoys being a guest on a talk show. But fame has its down side: three ex-cons in the viewing audience choose Willy as a kidnapping target. Unfortunately for the criminals, the Meehans haven't forgotten their old skill: Alvirah can become a cleaning woman at a moment's notice, and Willy still loves plumbing. And the experience Alvirah's had pursuing her interest in sleuthing doesn't hurt either. Bad news for the bad guys is good news for Alvirah's growing number of fans -another story rich in suspense and good humor.

    "An enjoyable listen!"

    Almost as much a comedy as a thriller. The "sister" sisters were just the right touch. A very enjoyable listen!!

    Story
    "Not for me."

    It's unfortunate that I chose this book to be the first by Mary Higgins Clark that I read/ listened to. I'm sure she's a great writer, but this didn't do it for me.

    At first I thought it was charming, but then I realized that I know these people. They were my grandparents. My grandmother was a smart cookie, big mouth, who you couldn't get to do anything she didn't want to do and in that turn, did exactly what she wanted. My grandfather followed everything she said weakly and for the most part handed over control to her. Most likely just to keep her quiet.
    The crime part of it was tepid at best.
    I wasn't moved by the characters and found myself wishing their demise in order to end it.
