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

Mary Higgins Clark is the queen of suspense. When I picked up this book and started to read it I could not put it down until I was done . It is excellent. Mary Higgins Clark does it again.

didn't finish listening March 28 2013

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.
