Product Description

Product Description

New York Times bestselling author Carol Higgins Clark is a native of New Jersey. So is her sleuth Regan Reilly. In Mobbed, Clark sends Regan “down the shore” where they have both vacationed since childhood. But this trip turns out to be no vacation for Regan!

PI Regan Reilly and her husband, Jack, head of the NYPD Major Case Squad, plan to spend the weekend at the Jersey shore with her parents. Regan’s mother, suspense writer Nora Regan Reilly, will be celebrating her birthday on Saturday. But Regan’s weekend gets off to an early start when she receives a phone call from her mother asking if she’d hop on a train right away.

Regan had just finished delivering bad news to a high school classmate. Hayley Patton is a successful New York City event planner, who had become suspicious that her beau, Scott, was seeing other women and hired Regan to follow him. When Hayley got the lowdown on Scott’s treachery, she vowed revenge with such vehemence that Regan is worried that Hayley might go too far.

Turns out Nora had also just spoken to an agitated high school classmate. Karen Frawley Fulton, who lives in San Diego, called Nora after learning her mother’s plans for the day. To Karen’s shock, Edna Frawley just sold their home at the Jersey shore and is having a garage sale to end all garage sales. Everything the beautiful young actress Cleo Paradise left behind when she recently rented the house is up for grabs. The irrepressible Edna even rented a plane to fly over the beach touting the sale, using Cleo’s name as bait. Karen’s heading East but asks Nora to please go to the house and, she hopes, curtail any other outrageous antics her mother probably has in mind. Nora agrees and asks Regan to join her.

Regan and Nora arrive at the Frawley home to find a mob of garage-sale junkies waiting at the front gate. Regan is astonished to see Scott’s brand-new fiancée, who quickly makes herself scarce.

Once inside the house, Regan becomes increasingly suspicious about why Cleo left so many belongings behind when she vacated Edna’s home unexpectedly. Was she in that much of a hurry? Regan wonders. “Where did Cleo go?” is a question too many people are suddenly asking. But no one has the answer. It isn’t long before Regan finds herself searching for Cleo, whose next hours may be her last.

Mobbed is another “fast-paced mystery with unexpected plot twists and Clark’s trademark humor” (The Daily Beast).

5.0 out of 5 stars Regan Reilly to the rescue April 6 2011
By Natasha Rose - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Private investigator Regan Reilly gets a call from her mother asking her to join her at a garage sale being run by the mother of an old friend. Cleo Paradise, a famous movie star, had been renting the house but mysteriously disappeared and everything she left behind was going up for sale. When Cleo's parents and best friend call looking for her, Regan decides to investigate. The book moves back and forth between the mayhem at the garage sale, Regan's investigation and Cleo's situation. It makes for a fun read, similar to Carolyn Hart's "Death on Demand" series.

1.0 out of 5 stars Huge disappointment May 9 2011
By E.A. Sparks - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I've read the whole Regan Reilly series. Have enjoyed them all. Not this time. Like others, I found too many characters, too little of Regan and her family, no PI work and a huge cast of characters -- none very interesting and all very hard to follow. I'm glad I didn't buy this book -- even used. I hope Ms. Clark can get back on track.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Read May 15 2011
By D. Love - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The Reilly's are all set to celebrate Nora's birthday when a phone calls waylays their plans and soon Regan is on a mission to find the missing woman who is in danger. The mystery kept me guessing as to who was after the actress. This was fun read and look forward to the next adventures with the Reilly clan.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing May 8 2011
By Agatha Christie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have bought or read all of Carol Higgins Clark's books.

Up to this point they had been relatively inoffensive, light, nothing-but-entertaining-anyway books.

This one however is so thin and jumpy it was not in the least enjoyable. And good grief, the coincidences are totally stretched beyond the breaking point.

This will be the last of her books on which I will waste my money. If the library has the next one I might read it.

Too bad. She had been at least enjoyable in the past.

1.0 out of 5 stars Clark Has Run Out of Ideas April 18 2011
By Earl A. Myers, Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
With each new Regan Reilly mystery, the plots have become thinner and the characters more colorless. Clark has hit the bottom of the barrel with this flavorless episode. The dialogue is so elemental that one must conclude that it was written by a grade-schooler. The chapters( 80 in number ) are rarely more than two pages in length and the situations bounce back and forth like a Mexican jumping bean.
Additionally, Regan Reilly has become a private investigator in name only. This work is destined to hit the sales aisles at Barnes & Noble in a hurry. Similar to Anita Shreve, Carol Higgins Clark has hit the proverbial wall and her readership will, I fear, decline in direct proportion to her uninspiring originality.
