Book Summary

with the dramatic story of two women, best friends, one of whom is charged - and convicted - of a murder the other may have committed.

America's "Queen of Suspense" returns with the dramatic story of two women, best friends, one of whom is charged - and convicted - of a murder the other may have committed. When Julia is released from prison at the age of 36, the first item on her agenda is to settle the score with her former friend.

Prologue

The State of Connecticut will prove that Molly Carpenter Lasch, with the intent to cause the death of her husband, Dr. Gary Lasch, did in fact cause his death; that as he sat at his desk, his back to her, she shattered his skull with a heavy bronze sculpture; that she then left him to bleed to death as she went upstairs to their bedroom and fell asleep....

The reporters seated behind the defendant scribbled furiously, roughing out the articles they would have to file in just a couple of hours if they were to meet their deadlines. The veteran columnist from Women's News Weekly began inking her usual gushing prose: "The trial of Molly Carpenter Lasch, charged with the murder of her husband, Gary, opened this morning in the mellow dignity of the courtroom in historic Stamford, Connecticut."

  1. Mary Higgins Clark is wonderfully adept at using imagery to help readers create a detailed mental picture of a character. For example, Molly is described as looking like "a beautiful bird perched at the end of a branch, poised but ready at any second to take flight." (p. 15) Find and discuss another example of imagery used to fine-tune a character's external and internal identity.
  2. Reread the scene in chapter eight where Fran is unpacking in her new apartment, and compare it to Molly's "homecoming" to Greenwich. How does each woman's different situation affect the way she handles the transition into her new life: the way she acts, thinks, feels, and even eats.
  3. Molly's conviction in Gary's murder ...

New York Times Book Review
[A] diabolical plot that Mary Higgins Clark prepares so carefully and executes with such relish.

TheMysteryReader.com
Good, strong, believable characters, the horrors of medical help and HMO's and hints of romance plus murder make for a good psychological murder mystery. We'll Meet Again is a winner! It is a page-turner that you won't want to put down.

Booklist
Clark is a master of suspense and an excellent storyteller. We'll Meet Again is first-rate entertainment.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I have always been a Mary Higgins Clark fan, but always thought that many of her books were a little predictable, however this book was very different. She introduced an ample amount of characters (or suspects if you ...   Read More
