The queen of suspense has a new book of short stories and a new set of sleuths. The setting is the nation's capital, and the detective team, a mere ex-president and his congresswoman wife. They find themselves immersed in a number of intrigues, rescuing the well-connected and powerful from scoundrels of all stripes. Although the setup has promise (a sort of "Thin Man Goes to Washington"), the book doesn't deliver the suspense and plot development that has made Mary Higgins Clark a bestseller. Fans of The Lottery Winner may be disappointed--and not only by the absence of the beloved team of Alvirah and Willy.From the Publisher:
Topping her bestselling success with Alvirah and Willy, in The Lottery Winner, America's Queen of Suspense introduces a new sleuthing couple, Henry and Sunday, an ex-president and his young congresswoman bride.
Henry Parker Britland IV is wealthy and worldly -- a beloved former president who, still youthful, is enjoying early retirement. His new wife, Sunday, is beautiful, smart and seventeen years younger than he, and has just been elected to Congress in a stunning upset victory that has made her the darling of the media.
Henry and Sunday make a formidable team of sleuths -- and never more so than when they set out to solve crimes occurring among their friends in political high society.
When Henry's former secretary of state is indicted for the murder of his mistress, Henry and Sunday suspect he is taking the fall for a crime of passion he did not commit. But why?
With cases ranging from a crime on the presidential yacht to a kidnapping that brings Henry back to the White House as he races against time to unravel the plot, there is never a dull moment for the ex-president and his bride -- or the reader.
With her wit and gift for characterization, the creator of the popular Alvirah and Willy stories brings us another marvelously endearing sleuthing duo, destined to return again and again.
