#BookReview :: You Belong To Me by Mary Higgins Clark


Check out the Book


Dr. Susan Chandler is a District Attorney turned Psychologist who hosts a radio show. When she invites people to engage about women who went missing and later on turned up dead, she has no idea the hornet’s nest she was stirring up. A caller provides information about a lady who went missing from a cruise ship; a chain reaction is set in motion. Soon there are bodies dropping in order to stop Susan from investigating further. But Susan is determined and realizes that she could be on the killers list next.

I found the character of Susan Chandler to be really interesting. To have served as a district attorney says a lot about her determination and talent. The fact that she then turned to Psychology and hosts a radio show, further intrigued me about her. It is an interesting set of skills that she has and as such it moulds her into a character that was just perfect for this case. Armed with knowledge of both the law and the human psyche, she embarks on a journey that not only tests her skills but also her grit.

Mary Higgins Clark has a style of storytelling that one can always depend upon; every time a book disappoints me, I go back to read one her books to get me out of the funk. This book was no exception. She has cleverly woven a story with drama, mystery and action that keeps the readers turn the pages right till the end. You Belong To Me offers up quite a few red herrings to the readers in order to keep them guessing. While I found every element of the book interesting, I have to say I was slightly disappointed by the antagonist’s motives. While the book rounds up well enough, the actual motive bothered me for a while. And that is the only reason that I am not rating this book a complete five stars.

If you like mysteries and haven’t read Mary Higgins Clark, you definitely should.
