Book Description

Dec 1 1998
Alvirah Meehan, the ever-resourceful former cleaning lady who struck it rich in the lottery, made her debut when she narrowly survived a stalking killer in the #1 bestseller, Weep No More My Lady. She returned, with her occasionally befuddled mate Willy, in the collection of unabridged, interconnected short stories presented in the S&S Audio favorite, The Lottery Winner. Now, Alvirah and Willy are back once again -- in two dazzling stories that complete the wonderful series: The Body in the Closet and Plumbing for Willy.

In The Body in the Closet, Alvirah discovers the strangled corpse of actress Fiona Winters in a closet in her Central Park South apartment when she and her husband, Willy, return front an adventure in London. Alvirah, a detective who never gives up, may learn too much about it for her own good. In Plumbing for Willy, Alvirah -- who has become something of a celebrity herself with her amateur sleuthing-among-the stars -- appears as a guest on a talk show. This gives some unfortunate ideas to a bunch of kidnappers who demand a hefty ransom far her hapless husband, Willy.

Written with the beloved author's trademark wit, romance, and keen eye for thrilling detection, these two stories are destined to join the family of Mary Higgins Clark perennial favorites!


Product Details


Product Description

From AudioFile

Alvirah Meehan wins the lottery, quits her job as a cleaning woman, and, along with her ex-plumber husband, Willy, accidentally begins a new career in crime-solving. In THE BODY IN THE CLOSET, Alvirah and Willy return from vacation to find a strangled woman in their bedroom closet. In PLUMBING FOR WILLY, poor Willy is kidnapped and held ransom for his lottery money. Frances Sternhagen's Queen's accent shapes the street-savvy Alvirah. Additionally, she creates a Willy perfectly compatible for Alvirah, a befuddled, loving, "salt-of-the-earth" darling. These short story plots are hilarious, clever, and performed with zany enthusiasm. B.J.P. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine

2.0 out of 5 stars didn't finish listening March 28 2013
By Mariposa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio Cassette
A different reader on "Plumbing for Willy" might have convinced me to finish listening to that book and even try the second selection. But I found myself wondering if she had even thought of reading the story before she began recording it. In spots there was a real lack of flow to the words. It was as if she thought a sentence was over, and then realized it wasn't! I enjoy Mary Higgins Clark's books but will definitely never buy an audio version again.
