A one-of-a-kind mystery collection that showcases the immense storytelling talent #1 New York Times bestselling author Mary Higgins Clark has honed over her tremendous career—including a bone-chilling, previously unpublished short story forty years in the making.

In 1974, master storyteller Mary Higgins Clark began writing a novella inspired by the dark side of the New York City fashion world. She then put the unfinished manuscript aside to write Where Are the Children?, the novel that would launch her career. Forty years later, Clark returned to that novella and wrote its ending. Now—for the first time ever—Death Wears a Beauty Mask is available for readers along with a stunning array of short fiction that spans her remarkable career.

From Clark’s first-ever published story (1956’s “Stowaway”), to classic tales featuring some of her most memorable characters, Death Wears A Beauty Mask And Other Stories is a jewel of a collection brimming over with the chills and heart-pounding drama we’ve come to expect from the Queen of Suspense. Death Wears A Beauty Mask And Other Stories is a spine-tingling read and a special glimpse into the evolution of a world-class writing career.

Review:

Praise for Death Wears a Beauty Mask and Other Stories

“This collection nicely illustrates Clark's range and superlative storytelling talent.” (Publishers Weekly)

“A gem...a tale with all of Clark’s trademarks: multiple twists, rising tension and a true whodunit. It’s a story to savor, as are the remaining pieces – all previously published – in the collection...There’s something about Mary, and that something is her unfailing ability to grip her legion of readers. And those fans are in for a triple treat as her anniversary year proceeds.” (Richmond Times-Dispatch)

Praise for I've Got You Under My Skin

"Fans of MWA Grand Master Clark will find plenty of intrigue and excitement in this contemporary thriller." (Publishers Weekly)

"Fans of MWA Grand Master Clark will find plenty of intrigue and excitement in this contemporary thriller...Clark keeps readers guessing and in suspense." (Publishers Weekly)

"The snappy pace, layered characters, and many plot surprises will keep readers guessing in this fascinating mystery by two talented writers."

(Booklist)

"This serendipitous series launch, or continuation, will satisfy Clark's legion of fans and may well win her some new ones." (Kirkus Reviews)

Praise for Daddy’s Gone A Hunting

“Mary Higgins Clark has penned yet another mystery that will keep her at the top of the suspense writers list for a very long time....Daddy’s Gone A Hunting will chill readers....This one is not to be missed.” (Bookreporter.com)

Praise for I'll Walk Alone

“Teeming with tantalizing twists, Clark’s crackling tale of identity theft, revenge, and murder is a tempting and thought-provoking thriller.”

(Booklist)

“Fans will bite their nails to the quick.”

(Kirkus Reviews)
