Book Description

April 1 1999
“The mistress of high tension” (The New Yorker) and undisputed Queen of Suspense Mary Higgins Clark brings us another New York Times bestselling novel that USA TODAY calls “her page-turning best” about a killer who targets lonely women on cruise ships, a masterful combination of page-turning suspense and classic mystery.

When Dr. Susan Chandler decides to use her daily radio talk show to explore the phenomenon of women who disappear and are later found to have become victims of killers who prey on the lonely and insecure, she has no idea that she is exposing herself—and those closest to her—to the very terror that she hopes to warn others against.

Susan sets out to determine who is responsible for an attempt on the life of a woman who called in to the show offering information on the mysterious disappearance from a cruise ship, years before, of Regina Clausen, a wealthy investment advisor. Soon Susan finds herself in a race against time, for not only does the killer stalk these lonely women, but he seems intent on eliminating anyone who can possibly further Susan’s investigation.

As her search intensifies, Susan finds herself confronted with the realization that one of the men who have become important figures in her life might actually be the killer. And as she gets closer to uncovering his identity, she realizes almost too late that the hunter has become the hunted. Is she the next one marked for murder?

Product Description

From Amazon

Much like the real-life Dr. Laura Schlessinger, Dr. Susan Chandler, the star of You Belong to Me, is a clinical psychologist who hosts a call-in radio show. She's bright, sharp-tongued, and even has "shoulder-length dark blonde hair." Fortunately for Dr. Laura, the similarities end there. During an episode of Ask Dr. Susan, Chandler unwittingly gets herself tangled in the web of a dangerous serial killer. It begins innocently enough when Chandler invites Dr. Donald Richards, a criminologist/psychiatrist/author to talk about his book, Vanishing Women and the plight of lonely women who are preyed upon by calculating killers. Chandler is particularly interested in the disappearance of woman named Regina Clausen, a high-profile investment advisor who vanished on a luxury cruise. Chandler feels indebted to Clausen--an investing tip she offered on CNBC turned a modest birthday check into a "bonanza"--so the good doctor uses her radio forum to help crack the case. Sure enough, during the last moments of the show, a nervous, married woman who goes by the name "Karen" calls in with invaluable clues. Apparently, she was almost a victim and can identify the murderer, but is frightened to come forward because of an insanely jealous husband. As Dr. Susan pursues her timid witness and digs deeper into the case, she realizes a hair too late that she is also one of the hunted. The fast-moving story line and easily digestible plot of You Belong to Me is vintage Mary Higgins Clark. --Rebekah Warren --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars You Belong to Me Sept. 10 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The attractive Dr. Susan Chandler, an assistant district attorney turned psychologist in her early thirties with her own popular advice radio show titled Ask Dr. Susan, is bringing in a new guest for today's episode. It is Dr. Donald Richards, a criminologist/psychologist who has come to Susan's show to discuss his new book, Vanishing Women, which focuses on a group of various real-life cases where women have disappeared over the years. On the show, Susan mentions the recent disappearance of Regina Clausen, an internationally known CNBC investments advisor who went missing soon-to-be four years ago when the Gabrielle, the cruise ship she had been on, stopped to port in Hong Kong. Susan requests that if anyone may have any information on Regina's disappearance, they should please call during the show's call-in segment.

During the call-in, most of the phone calls Susan receives are mundane. But finally, the last call is from a frightened woman who will only identify herself as "Karen," which she says is not her real name. Karen tells Susan and Donald that, a few years ago, she herself was approached by a man while on a worldwide cruise. Karen had been separated from her husband during that period because of his anger and jealousy. She almost got off the ship in Algiers with the man, to run away with him. All Karen still has of her mystery man is a gold band embedded with little turquoise stones and the sentimental inscription "You belong to me" on the inside of the band. Karen's case seems remarkably similar to Regina's, only Karen got away and returned to her contrite husband. Susan begs Karen to come to her office tomorrow, and she reluctantly complies.

But it is already too late for Karen, who turns out to be Carolyn Wells.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced and rivoting April 11 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Mary Higgins Clark writes a well-crafted novel that succeeds in luring the reader in and keeping them turning those pages. In "You Belong to Me" her highly lucrative formula of alternating chapters focusing on the varying third person perspectives works extremely well to keep the reader from guessing the identity of the murderer until Clark sees fit to reveal it at the very end of her story.

The plot revolves around likeable call-in radio psychologist Susan Chandler who inadvertantly triggers a spree of seemingly unlinked killings when she decides to center a few of her broadcasts on the subject of disappearing women, in particular Regina Clausen, a leading financial analyst who disappeared 4 years earlier without a trace while on a cruise in the Far East. As readers, we get a glimpse into the mind of the murderer as he himself listens to the show and strategizes to keep his overall plan a secret by eliminating people who simply get in his way. We are privy to police investigations, and the ruminations of private eyes and eye witnesses. We walk for a while in the shoes of intended victims and share their horror as the murderer moves along his amoral course without regrets. We uncover facts about Dr Susan, immediately understanding that she is undergoing some personal problems of her own regarding her parent's divorce and her father's subsequent marriage to someone she dislikes; her mother's ensueing depression and her sister's angry betrayals. Most entertaining is guessing which of the three men linked to Dr. Susan personally is our deranged serial killer and what motivation has provoked such a terrible vengenance.

Clark doesn't disappoint, she keeps you interested until the last page.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm not the type that usually reads mystery books. In the past I favored fiction and science fiction books. After reading this mystery thriller I have become interested in mystery reading. This book is about a killer who targets lonely women on cruise ships. Dr. Susan Chandler decides to use her daily radio talk show to find out more clues about these strange disappearances of women. Most of these women targeted are lonely and insecure. Dr. Susan Chandler has no idea that she is exposing herself and others around her to the killer who will seek out anyone who is trying to obtain clues of there whereabouts. Dr. Susan Chandler receives a call from a listener who was on the same cruise ship when Regina Clausen was aboard and suddenly disappeared. On her way to meet Dr. Chandler personally she comes to a terrible end that was ruled an accident.
Dr. Susan Chandler finds that she doesn't have much time left. The killer is getting closer.
I recommend this book to people who like mysteries. If you're not a mystery reader like me you should give it a try. This story will grasp you into it and gets you glued to the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars You belong to me, or do you April 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
Mary Higgins Clark has always written great books, so I knew You Belong to Me would not be an exception. At first, the book seemed to be somewhat confusing due to the fact that there were ten main characters and each chapter was devoted to one character, so the book kept skipping around between people. After learning who was who though, the book went great. I have never been so intrigued or into a book as much as I was with this one.
Trying to summarize this book without giving away the murderer might be a challenge, but I will give it a try. As the story starts out in New York, there is a daily radio talk show host named Susan Chandler who decides to bring it upon herself to find out whatever happened to Regina Clausen, a forty year old woman who went on a cruise and never returned home. The first day of the show an unidentified woman calls into the show to say that she was on a cruise before, after her husband and she had a fight, and a man gave her a ring with the inscription that said, "You belong to me." She then said that she would bring the ring to the show incase it had any relevance to solving the mystery. As she was delivering the ring, a man, who turned out to be the murderer, pushed her in front of a van which sent her to the hospital with a coma. Regina's mother then found a ring with the exact identity as the one from the unknown woman, so she gave it to Susan. Another woman later called in and said she had a ring that sounded almost the same as the one the other women described. The murderer was listening to the show and he knew he had to get rid of this woman so she would not tell where she bought the ring from. As the investigation continued on the air of the talk show, the murderer has to continue killing people who might know he is the killer.
