I just finished reading I’ve Got my Eyes on You by Mary Higgins Clark. The Queen of Suspense is always good for an interesting murder mystery, and does not disappoint with this police procedural. There are plenty of suspects in this book, and while I guessed the perp early on, I still enjoyed the telling of the story.

Jamie hurried toward the pool. His foot kicked something that was on the ground. It was a golf club. He picked it up, carried it toward the pool and put it on one of the chairs. 

Mary Higgins Clark, I’ve Got My Eyes on You

After a party when her parents are away, eighteen-year-old Kerry Dowling is found fully dressed at the bottom of the family pool. The immediate suspect is her boyfriend, who had a bitter argument with her at the party. Then there is a twenty-year-old neighbor who was angry because she didn’t invite him to the party. Or is there another suspect who has not yet been seen on the radar?

Kerry’s older sister Aline, a twenty-eight-year-old guidance counselor, is determined to assist the prosecutor’s office in learning the truth. She does not realize that now she is putting her own life in danger…


  1. I enjoyed this one. Thanks for sharing, and here’s mine: “THE BOOKISH LIFE OF NINA HILL”

  2. Yes… I tend to like my mysteries a little more cosy than this – but there’s no denying that the premise sounds brilliant. I hope you enjoy it:)
