When psychologist Dr. Susan Chandler uses her call-in radio show to explore the issue of lonesome women who disappear and are later found to have been victims of seductive killers, she has no way of knowing she is exposing herself — and those closest to her — to the very horror she is warning others against.

After a listener calls in offering information about the mysterious disappearance from a luxury ocean liner of wealthy investment advisor Regina Clausen, the caller meets with a terrible accident. Or so say the police. As Susan begins to investigate, she quickly finds herself in a race against time — and an assassin who targets not only vulnerable women, but anyone who might offer clues to his identity. Inching closer to the truth, Susan makes shocking dual discoveries: that the killer may be an important figure in her own life, and that she herself is marked for murder.


I really liked the book. Mary Higgins is such a brilliant author. I’ve read a lot of her books and until now I’m still a newbie in pointing out the real suspect/killer. Her way of “who done it” is really the best! I was so hooked on the story that I can’t afford skipping some lines because I might not be able to pinpoint the suspect.

The story was about a serial killer who kills lonely women and always gives them a turquoise ring inscribed “You belong to me”.  On the other hand, Susan Chandler, a former district attorney turned psychologist and radio host has a show called “Ask Susan” wherein she gathers all the evidence about the mysterious disappearance of these women. She inquires on air about the incident which leads her in finding the killer.

I was very engrossed in the story. Its plot is very interesting. I couldn’t even drop the book for a second. The story was fast paced which makes me feel like I really need to know all the details. She introduced every character in the story which seems to be strong suspects, and she will let you guess till the end. As usual, she used simple words which is what I liked about her books.

And do I have to say it? Hahaha. This book is highly recommended.
