El sexto libro de la serie protagonizada por Laurie Moran y el equipo de investigación de Bajo sospecha.

Hace cinco años, el famoso físico Martin Bell fue asesinado mientras regresaba a su casa de Greenwich Village. Sus padres siguen convencidos de que su esposa Kendra pergeñó la muerte y, decididos a hacerse con la custodia de sus nietos, contactan con Laurie Moran para que incluya su caso en el programa Bajo sospecha. Kendra, en cambio, que ha sido perseguida por los medios y a menudo acusada del crimen, ve una oportunidad para limpiar su nombre.

Cuando Laurie empieza a indagar en la historia, descubre que el doctor Bell no era ese perfecto marido y padre, sino que ocultaba muchos secretos. Y ¿qué relación guarda la red de mentiras de los Bell con el peligroso extraño que vigila a Moran desde lejos, aguardando el momento?

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

“Queen of Suspense” Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke are back with their fifth enthralling mystery in the New York Times bestselling Under Suspicion series; You Don’t Own Me finds television producer Laurie Moran stopping at nothing to solve the murder of a celebrity doctor—even as she finds herself in grave danger as a mysterious stalker plots his next move.



When we last saw Laurie Moran, she had recently become engaged to her show’s former host, Alex Buckley. Since then, the two have been happily planning a summer wedding and honeymoon, preparing for Alex’s confirmation to a federal judicial appointment, and searching for the perfect New York City home for their new life together.

But then Laurie is approached by Robert and Cynthia Bell, parents of Dr. Martin Bell, a famously charming and talented physician who was shot dead as he pulled into the driveway of his Greenwich Village carriage house five years ago. The Bells are sure that Martin’s disgraced and erratic wife, Kendra, carried out the murder. Determined to prove Kendra’s guilt and win custody over their grandchildren, they plead with Laurie to feature their son’s case on “Under Suspicion,” ensuring her that Kendra is willing to cooperate.

Kendra has lived under a blanket of suspicion since Martin’s death, with the tabloid media depicting her as a secretive, mentally unstable gold-digger. Laurie’s show is a chance for her to clear her name. But unbeknownst to the Bells, Kendra has already refused once before to go forward with a re-investigation of her husband’s murder, and her statements to the contrary only add to the appearance of guilt.

But once Laurie dives into the case, she learns that Martin wasn’t the picture-perfect husband, father, and doctor he appeared to be and was carrying secrets of his own. And what does the web of lies ensnaring the Bell family have to do with a dangerous stranger, who gazes at Laurie from afar and thinks, She is actually quite a lovely girl, I’m sure she’s going to be missed…?

You Don’t Own Me is the perfect, exhilarating follow up to the bestselling Every Breath You Take. The “Queen of Suspense” Mary Higgins Clark and her dazzling partner-in-crime Alafair Burke have devised another riveting page-turner.
Book 5
Quinto libro de la serie protagonizada por la reportera e investigadora Laurie Morgan y el equipo del programa de televisión Bajo sospecha.

Hace tres años, Virginia Wakeling, miembro de la junta directiva del Museo Metropolitano de Arte y una de sus más importantes donantes, apareció muerta. Había sido arrojada desde la terraza del museo la noche en la que se celebraba una gala para recaudación de fondos. El principal sospechoso del asesinato fue entonces, como sigue siendo ahora, su joven novio y entrenador personal, Ivan Gray.

Ivan regenta un establecimiento llamado Punch, financiado en buena medida por la difunta Virginia… y frecuentado por Ryan Nichols, el nuevo presentador de Bajo sospecha. Fue él, de hecho, quien propuso investigar este caso cerrado para el programa. Cuando la productora, Laurie Moran, lo acepte, pronto se adentrará en una red de secretos y traiciones hasta descubrir que el peligro también lo acecha a ella.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The New York Times bestselling Under Suspicion series by the “Queen of Suspense” Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke returns with this gripping mystery following television producer’s Laurie Moran investigation of the unsolved Met Gala murder—in which a wealthy widow was pushed to her death from the famous museum’s rooftop.

Laurie Moran’s professional life is a success—her television show Under Suspicion is a hit, both in the ratings and its record of solving cold cases. But her romantic break from former host Alex Buckley has left her with on-air talent she can’t stand—Ryan Nichols—and a crippling sense of loneliness.

Now Ryan has suggested a new case. Three years ago, Virginia Wakeling, a member of the Board of Trustees of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and one of the museum’s most generous donors, was found dead in the snow, after being thrown from the museum’s roof on the night of the Met Gala. The leading suspect then and now is her much younger boyfriend and personal trainer, Ivan Gray.

Ivan runs a trendy, successful boutique gym called Punch—a business funded in no small part by the late Virginia—which happens to be the gym Ryan frequents. Laurie’s skepticism about the case is upended by a tip from her father’s NYPD connection, and soon Laurie realizes there are a bevy of suspects—including Virginia’s trusted inner circle.

As the Under Suspicion crew pries into the lives of a super wealthy real estate family with secrets to hide, danger mounts for several witnesses—and for Laurie.

Un thriller contemporáneo sobre un reality de televisión que trata de desvelar los misterios de un caso de asesinato sin resolver que conmocionó al mundo en los años noventa.

La productora de televisión Laurie Moran no podría estar más contenta. El episodio piloto de Bajo sospecha ha sido un éxito.

La muerte de Susan Dempsey, una estudiante de la Universidad de California de Los Ángeles, guapa y con mucho talento, suscitó un sinfín de preguntas:¿Por qué el coche estaba aparcado tan lejos de donde se halló el cadáver?¿Llegó a presentarse al casting en casa de un prometedor director, Frank Parker?¿Qué vínculo tenía con una controvertida iglesia del campus?¿Por qué le faltaba un zapato?

Laurie sabe que este programa puede ser un bombazo, sobre todo porque los sospechosos son ricos magnates de la tecnología o forman parte de la élite de Hollywood. Parece una historia para la gran pantalla¿pero está listo el asesino de Cenicienta para su primer plano?

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

In this collaboration between “Queen of Suspense” Mary Higgins Clark and bestselling author Alafair Burke, “the snappy pace, layered characters, and many plot surprises will keep readers guessing in this fascinating mystery” (Booklist).

Television producer Laurie Moran is delighted when the pilot for her reality drama, Under Suspicion, is a success. Even more, the program—a cold case series that revisits unsolved crimes by recreating them with those affected—is off to a fantastic start when it helps solve an infamous murder in the very first episode.

Now Laurie has the ideal case to feature in the next episode of Under Suspicion: the Cinderella Murder. When Susan Dempsey, a beautiful and multi-talented UCLA student, was found dead, her murder raised numerous questions. Why was her car parked miles from her body? Had she ever shown up for the acting audition she was due to attend at the home of an up-and-coming director? Why does Susan’s boyfriend want to avoid questions about their relationship? Was her disappearance connected to a controversial church? Was she close to her computer science professor because of her technological brilliance, or something more? And why was Susan missing one of her shoes when her body was discovered?

With the help of Under Suspicion host Alex Buckley, Laurie knows the case will attract great ratings, especially when the former suspects include Hollywood’s elite and tech billionaires. The suspense and drama are perfect for the silver screen—but is Cinderella’s murderer ready for a close-up?

Together Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke deliver “plenty of intrigue and excitement” (Publishers Weekly) in this exciting start to a new series that will keep you guessing until the final page.
