Overview

La detective amateur Alvirah Meehan y la investigadora privada Regan Reilly reciben una invitación navideña para viajar, junto a sus esposos, en el recién inaugurado Royal Mermaid. La intención del patrocinador del acto es reunir en un crucero a un selecto grupo de benefactores que «hayan hecho del mundo un lugar mejor». Pero la tranquilidad termina cuando dos trajes de Santa Claus desaparecen del almacén, una pasajera afirma haber visto el fantasma de un escritor famoso, se cierne una tormenta sobre el barco y un hombre está a punto de perder la vida tras sufrir un misterioso ataque. Mientras el Royal Mermaid navega por un mar encrespado, Alvirah y Regan ­con la ayuda del marido de esta, el jefe de brigada Jack Reilly­ van descubriendo las pistas que los llevarán hasta unos peligrosos criminales que no figuraban en la lista de inivitados inicial. Repleta de suspense y humor, Misterio en alta mar es una novela que no se puede dejar de leer. Mary Higgins Clark, de nuevo en tándem con su hija Carol, nos embarca en un viaje lleno de glamour y sobresaltos hacia un final a la vez conmovedor y espeluznante que tiene lugar en Nochevieja. «Mary Higgins Clark ha transmitido a Carol el talento para escribir y tener éxito.» Paris-Match

Meet the Author

Mary Higgins Clark
Mary Higgins Clark likes to delve into different worlds in her crackerjack novels of suspense; but while the milieus change, her stories are always compelling. As she puts it: "I write about people going about their daily lives, not looking for trouble, who are suddenly plunged into menacing situations."

Biography

The Queen of Suspense, Bronx-born and -bred Mary Higgins Clark has achieved international success against heavy odds. Her father died when she was 11, and her mother struggled to raise and provide for Mary and her two brothers. Clark attended secretarial school after high school and worked for three years in an advertising agency before leaving to become a stewardess for Pan American Airlines. Throughout 1949, she flew international flights to Europe, Africa, and Asia. " I was in a revolution in Syria and on the last flight into Czechoslovakia before the Iron Curtain went down," she recalls. In 1950, she quit her job to marry Warren Clark, a neighbor nine years her senior whom she had known and admired since she was 16.

In the early years of her marriage, Clark began writing short stories, making her first sale in 1956 to Extension Magazine. Between writing and raising a family, the decade flew by. Then, in 1964, Warren Clark suffered a fatal heart attack, leaving his young widow with five children to support. She went to work writing radio scripts; and, around this time, she decided to try her hand at writing books. Inspired by a radio series she was working on, she drafted a biographical novel about George Washington. It was published in 1969 under the title Aspire to the Heavens. (In 2002, it was re-issued as Mount Vernon Love Story.) Her first suspense novel, Where Are the Children?, appeared in print in 1975. It was a huge hit and marked a turning point in her life. Since then, she has developed a loyal fan base, and each of her novels has hit the bestseller lists. She has also co-written stories and novels with her daughter Carol, a successful author in her own right.

In the 1970s, Clark enrolled in Fordham University at Lincoln Center, graduating summa cum laude in 1979. A great supporter of education, she has served as a trustee of her alma mater and Providence College and holds numerous honorary degrees. She remains active in Catholic affairs and has been honored with many awards. Her publisher, Simon & Schuster, funds an annual award in her name to be given to authors of suspense fiction writing in the Mary Higgins Clark tradition.
