Product Description

From Amazon

We'll Meet Again is filled with the ingredients that Mary Higgins Clark devotees will devour: fast-paced suspense, double-crossing villains, romantic intrigue, and a resounding showdown at the end. Harder to swallow is the excessive use of theatricals whenever the author describes a satanic like HMO, and its legion of evil doctors. The darkest knight of all is Peter Black, whose eyes "were cold, angry, menacing--certainly not the eyes of a healer." Still, melodrama aside, Higgins Clark still knows how to spin a good yarn.

Her heroine in We'll Meet Again is an investigative reporter named Fran Simmons, who is not unlike the bright, resourceful Dr. Susan Chandler in You Belong to Me. Fran has just been hired to work on a popular new TV show called True Crime. Coincidentally, her very first assignment involves an ex-pupil from her old high school, the posh Cranden Academy in Greenwich, Connecticut. Molly Lasch had been incarcerated in her mid-20s, accused of pulverizing her husband's head with a Remington bronze sculpture. The murder of this community doctor, and chief executive officer of a local HMO, stunned Greenwich.

For half a decade Molly claimed to have no memory of the event, but now out on parole, slivers of memory trickle back--and Molly informs the press that someone else was in the house at the time of her husband's murder. Few people believe her--even less so when a key witness from the original trial is stabbed to death and evidence links Molly to the scene of the crime. It's up to the ever vigilant Fran to investigate what the police won't--and she unearths some very dark and extremely dirty secrets that will further shock the quiet community. --Naomi Gesinger --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Library Journal

Molly Lasch, a Greenwich, CT, socialite, has just been released on parole from prison. She had been convicted of the murder of her husband, Dr. George Lasch, a prominent physician and hospital administrator. With no clear memory of having committed the crime, Molly sets out to determine what actually happened. To establish her guilt or innocence in her own mind, she enlists the support of her former schoolmate and investigative television reporter Fran Simmons. The two women uncover medical improprieties and attempted coverups that may lead to alternate suspects. As the mystery unfolds, Molly gradually recalls the details of the crime. A cast of characters is introduced, most of whom had as strong a motive for killing Dr. Lasch as did Molly. Jan Maxwell's reading sustains a proper level of suspense as the plot takes unexpected turns, effectively portraying the troubled demeanor of Molly. A good selection from the mystery and suspense genre.ACatherine Swenson, Norwich Univ. Lib., Northfield, VT

In We'll Meet Again, Molly Carpenter-Lasch is tried and convicted of killing her husband, beloved Dr. Gary Lasch. There's one problem though--Molly has no recollection of the events of that night. She awoke the morning after the murder to find herself covered in her dead husband's blood. A plea bargain gets her a shorter sentence and upon her release Molly declares on TV for the world to see that she didn't kill her husband but she will try to find out who did. Enter Fran Simmons, school chum whose father committed suicide for stealing money from the library fund. Fran is now an investigative reporter and Molly wants her to help her find the truth behind her husband's murder.
This story was hard to get into but after it gets going it is well worth the time. There are a lot of characters involved which makes it at times very frustrating keeping them straight. I found myself going back to reread pages trying to keep them straightened out in my mind. The storyline is good, although a little confusing when speaking of the HMO's. The book is fast-paced after about page 100. I found myself not really enjoying the book until I had passed the 100 page milestone. Then it becomes so good I couldn't think of not finishing it. And I must say the culprit was NOT who I thought it would be.
We'll Meet Again is a book well worth reading. Just keep in mind you need to get past the somewhat boring beginning to truly enjoy it. Although not one of my favorite Mary Higgins Clark books one enjoyable to read.

I recently read "We'll Meet Again", by Mary Higgins Clark. It is a mystery that is 283 pages. Dr. Gary Lacsh is murdered one night and everybody suspects that his own wife killed him. The only problem is that his wife claims that she has no memory of that night. She vaguely remembers that someone else was in the house. Did she really murder him?
Mary Higgins Clark was born on December 24, 1929. She was raised in New York. She studied in the Fordham University in 1974. She recieved a BA in philosophy. Her success is due in large part to her likeable characters. She published the book "We'll Meet Again" in 1999.
This book was a great suspense story that got me interested from the first page to the last page. Once I got to know the characters, I felt I was in the court room watching the case with my own eyes. The story had very suspenseful details that twist and turn the story. Clark is very good at describing the character in detial that you start to feel that you are in their heads. Every sentence is important to the case and i felt as if I was investigating. If you like mysteries and stories that will keep you on the edge of you seat, then this is the book for you.

You should know what you're in for if you have read any of Clark's bloody gore or gross language, just a nice, easy read mystery. The plot centers around a hospital, HMOs, and the murder of one of the doctors. Molly is just released from prison for killing her former husband, Gary. She cannot remember doing it but can't prove it. Ten days later, Gary's girlfriend is killed and Molly is again the suspect. Fran, an investigative reporter wants to do a TV show about it. School friends of Molly's offer support as does her lawyer. But do they really believe she didn't do it? Molly's part-time housekeeper has a few secrets she is not sharing so as to protect her not- normal son who doesn't always take his medications. But he likes Molly and wants to visit her. Power plays for the hospital to take over the HMOs are suspicious in their secret meetings. Who is the killer(s) and how were they done? MHC keeps you in enough suspense and flips the suspect out of the stew to surprise all but the very best of readers who often claim to know the killer from page two.

What manner of novel becomes a #1 New York Times bestseller and has the New York Times Book Review raving over as having a "diabolical plot [... prepared] so carefully and [executed] with such relish"? One, obviously, painstakingly researched, every detail checked, rechecked, and then checked again. It is unfortunate then, that the extent of research for We'll Meet Again appears to be limited to a Connecticut state travel guide.

Although the author may be known as a mystery writer, this book is much less a mystery than a fawning description of the New England aristocracy that she most likely yearns for. A world in which coffee is drunk from "demitasse cups," live-in cooks are named Pedro, and which is populated by "attractive and socially desirable women." One of sterile emotion and flat character. A world that she is eager to demonstrate her knowledge of in the most insipid detail. There are so many references to Interstate 95 and the Merritt parkway that one would hardly deny that Ms Clark must be intimately familiar with them.

It seems that MHC has a love affair with adjectives. What, really, is a "generous view," and how exactly are "Virginia ham and Swiss cheese removed from a refrigerator with careful pleasure"? Please! The "dried-up" and "tearless" tautologies become "instantly arid". Then there are these flourishing gems of literary style: "His prodigious memory bank instantly furnished the facts he was seeking." In other words, he remembered? Or heart-rending emotion: "It was as though the entire time had been simply a dream sequence. Dream? No- nightmare!" Good grief! Could she possibly have been conscious of the delicious irony in naming her television station NAF TV?
