Overview

A one-of-a-kind mystery collection that showcases the immense storytelling talent #1 New York Times bestselling author Mary Higgins Clark has honed over her tremendous career—including a bone-chilling, previously unpublished short story forty years in the making.

In 1974, master storyteller Mary Higgins Clark began writing a novella inspired by the dark side of the New York City fashion world. She then put the unfinished manuscript aside to write Where Are the Children?, the novel that would launch her career. Forty years later, Clark returned to that novella and wrote its ending. Now—for the first time ever—Death Wears a Beauty Mask is available for readers along with a stunning array of short fiction that spans her remarkable career.

From Clark’s first-ever published story (1956’s “Stowaway”), to classic tales featuring some of her most memorable characters, Death Wears A Beauty Mask And Other Stories is a jewel of a collection brimming over with the chills and heart-pounding drama we’ve come to expect from the Queen of Suspense. Death Wears A Beauty Mask And Other Stories is a spine-tingling read and a special glimpse into the evolution of a world-class writing career.

I enjoyed reading this Mary Higgins Clark book but not as much as her others.I like her style of writing and her mysteries and reading it through to the finale. This book is good and anyone who wishes to sample hr writing will enjoy it.

When I ordered my copy of "Country Living", there were no problems. I have ordered many books online with no problems.

The Queen of Suspense, Mary Higgins Clark, has taken to writing short stories with aplomb. These stories are packed with intrigue, suspense, vengeance, murder and perfect endings. They all are packed with a punch and have a twist and keeps you guessing until the end. What’s better than that?

I have been a Mary Higgins Clark fan for many years, but really did not care for this book at all. Most of the short stories had endings that left you hanging. Not her best work.

I have read every one of her books and I did not care for this one.  It was boring.  Wait and pick it up at a garage sale.
