To this day, five years later, the piercing blue eyes he saw on that night haunt his dreams. But as he left the scene, the killer had one final message for Timmy - 'Tell your mother she's next, then it's your turn...'

    Now, with murder back in her life - as a producer for a true-crime television show - Laurie reopens a 20-year-old case that was nationwide news to pull in the ratings. But as filming of the reconstruction with the surviving parties begins, it's clear that they all have secrets of their own... and some familiar piercing blue eyes are watching, too!!!

    Tantalising, frightening, and totally unputdownable, I've Got You Under My Skin shows what a professional Mary Higgins Clark is at crafting a thought-provoking novel that will have readers hooked late into the night.

Thanks to his lucrative if not always legal businesses, she and their three -little girls live in luxury. But on the Fourth of July, 1976, Bambi's world implodes when Felix, newly convicted and facing prison, mysteriously vanishes. Though Bambi has no idea where her husband - or his money - might be, she suspects one woman does: his devoted young mistress, Julie. When Julie herself disappears ten years to the day that Felix went on the lam, everyone assumes she's left to join her -old lover - until her remains are found in a secluded wooded park. Now, twenty-six years after Julie went missing, Roberto 'Sandy' Sanchez, a retired Baltimore detective working cold cases for some extra cash, is investigating her murder. What he discovers is a tangled web of bitterness, jealously, resentment and greed stretching over the three decades and three generations that connect these five very different women. And at the center of every woman's story is the man who, though long gone, has never been forgotten: the enigmatic Felix Brewer. Somewhere between the secrets and lies connecting past and present, Sandy could find the explosive truth...
