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.

I Heard That Song Before
by Mary Higgins Clark
In a riveting psychological thriller, Mary Higgins Clark takes the reader deep into the mysteries of the human mind, where memories may be the most dangerous things of all. At the center of her novel is Kay Lansing, daughter of the landscaper to the wealthy and powerful Carrington family and Peter Carrington. Kay sees Peter as maligned and misunderstood, and when he begins to court her she falls in love with him. Over the objections of her beloved grandmother Margaret O'Neil, who raised her after her parents' early deaths, she marries him. To her dismay, she soon finds that he is a sleepwalker whose nocturnal wanderings draw him to the spot at the pool where his wife met her end.

Kitchen Privileges: A Memoir
by Mary Higgins Clark
The title of Clark's memoir derives from the sign her mother used to solicit boarders at their Bronx apartment in the Depression. Clark's life is a rich and fascinating one, full of both tragedy and inspiration. She covers it all here, from her poor girlhood to being widowed with five children to the beginnings of her remarkably successful career as a novelist.
