Editorial Reviews Review

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 the Hardcover edition.

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

More About the Author

If I were to define myself in one sentence, I would say, "I'm a nice Irish Catholic girl from the Bronx."

I was a Christmas Eve baby all those years ago, the second of the three children of Nora and Luke Higgins. Mother was pushing forty when they married and my father was forty-two. My older brother was named Joseph. Nineteen months later I, Mary, was born. Three and a half years later, my little brother, John, came along.

We lived in a very nice section of the Bronx on a street off Pelham Parkway. I loved our house. I still love it. After my father died, when I was eleven, my mother had to sell it.

I went to Saint Francis Xavier Grammar School. Two years ago I went back and was Principal for a Day. Escorted by two of the tiniest children, I was led into the auditorium while the whole student body sang "Hello Mary. You're back where you belong." I still tear up thinking about it.

I was awarded a scholarship to Villa Maria Academy which is in the Pelham Bay section of the Bronx, otherwise I couldn't have afforded to set foot in it.

I went to Woods Secretarial School and at eighteen had my first full-time job as Secretary to the creative director of Remington Rand's in-house advertising agency. If I were making that choice now I would have gone to college even though God knows we needed the income. On the other hand the three years I spent in Remington Rand was a tutorial in advertising which served me well when I was widowed with five small children. Another plus was that I left Remington to be a flight stewardess with Pan American Airways and when my contemporaries were seniors in college, I was flying to Europe, Africa and Asia.

Warren Clark and I were married on December 26, 1949 and had five children in the next eight years; Marilyn, Warren, David, Carol and Patricia. Warren died of a heart attack in 1964. The highest compliment I can pay my kids are that they are like him.

I sold my first short story when I was twenty-eight. It was alled 'Stowaway'. It had been rejected forty times before a magazine in Chicago bought it for one hundred dollars.

My first book was about George Washington. It was published in 1969 and disappeared without a trace. Three years ago Simon and Schuster co-published it with the Mount Vernon Historical Society and retitled 'Mount Vernon Love Story', it became a bestseller.

My first suspense novel 'Where Are the Children' was bought in 1974 for three thousand dollars by Simon and Schuster. Thirty-three books later, I'm still with S&S.

Time to wind up - at least for the present. As soon as I sold 'Children' I enrolled in Fordham College. Went there for five years at night and earned a B.A. in Philosophy. Summa cum laude, if you please.

I never thought I'd marry again but ten years ago I threw a cocktail party on St. Patrick's day. My daughter, Pat, urged me to invite John Conheeney. Her opening words about him were, "Have I got a hunk for you!" He came to the party and we were married eight months later.

I'm Honorary Chairman of FraXa Research. My grandson, David, has the Fragile X syndrome, which is the second leading cause of retardation after Downs Syndrome. Basically the brain of the people who have it can't send out the proper signals because there's a kind of short circuit in the synapses that carry the signals. We raise money for research with the goal of finding a medication that will work around that short circuit. I go all over the country to the fund-raisers as new chapters of FraXa are opened.

I'm always asked to name my favorite book. They're ALL my favorites. If there is one book that is very special to me, it is my memoir 'Kitchen Privileges' because writing it made me relive my early life including those first struggles to become a writer. I think 'Kitchen Privileges' is both tender and funny and it's me.

For anyone who loves the classic murder mystery story, Mary Higgins Clark's We'll Meet Again will exceed every expectation. The story centers on the socialite Molly Carpenter Lasch, who, five years prior to the beginning of the story, pled guilty to murdering her husband, Dr. Gary Lasch, despite the fact she remembered nothing about the night he was killed. After being released on parole, Molly asserts her innocence again in front of the media. Among the media, Fran Simmons, an old classmate of Molly's from high school, begins covering the story for the local television station for a segment called True Crimes. Molly contacts Fran and convinces Fran to help her investigate the murder further in order to find the answers to that tragic night. During the course of the investigation, tragedy strikes again when the body of a key witness is discovered only hours after Molly questioned the witness. To the surprise of many, the book holds the reader captive until the very end. This is one of Clark's best works so far. For a fast paced and intriguing murder mystery, We'll Meet Again is one of the best new novels available right now and a must read!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Though this book has a slow start... the last 1/3rd is very engrossing! The outcome was a surprise for me and I NEVER suspected the murderer!
"We'll Meet Again" is another book in the long list of excellent and very entertaining mysteries by Mary Higgins Clark.
This story is about Molly, a wife convicted of murdering her cheating husband, Gary. She does not remember the night of his death at all. When she is released from prison she asks her friend, Fran, an investigative reporter to help her find her husband's murderer, even if it turns out to be herself (Molly). While Fran investigates, another murder is committed and it looks like Molly will be tried for this death also!
While Fran uncovers an inhumane research project that Gary and partners are involved in at the hospital she is nearly murdered herself!
Overall, this book is very interesting with a surprising conclusion!

In my opinion, the best mystery writer ever! As in all of her books, the characters and plot are sensational. Never a dull moment and as always, a surprise ending.

"We'll Meet Again" is a mystery about a woman who is convicted and serves time for killing her husband. Although, she doesn't believe she could take another human life, and her memory of the night her husband was murdered is very foggy. I am a new reader of mysteries and the only other one I've read was "The Cradle Will Fall" also by Clark. The plot in the beginning appears to be very similar, malpractice of hospitals and the beautiful woman is the main character. But, this is no ordinary novel. Once I really got to know the characters and got more into the plot, it became very interesting book. Clark does a very good job with description in her writing. The different scenes and characters throughout the novel are so well described, as to when you get to middle of the book you feel as if your just looking on, in these peoples lives. This quote is from the beginning, when the main character, Molly, comes back to her house to describe it, "...touching her grandmother's ornate silver tea service in the dining room while willing herself not to think of the prison dining room, the coarse plates, the meals that had been like ashes in her mouth. Everything seemed so familiar, yet she couldn't help feeling herself to be an intruder." Clark does a great job of incorporating personality characteristics, while still describing the setting as in the above quote. Not only does she describe scenes well, but also she describes characters very well also. "Her body filled out, and like her mother and sister she was now size 14. The dark hair that used to bounce on her shoulders was a trim curly cap around her heart shaped face.Read more ›

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Mary Higgins Clark's novel, "We'll Meet Again" is not a highly recommend book. The novel starts out slow and only starts to pick up after about halfway through. When the novel opens the reader is left hanging, waiting to discover "who did it". Unfortunately, this hanging feeling lasts throughout almost the entire book. The first half of the novel is very slow moving, making it hard to get into the book and get interested. A lot of the characters were also very dull and boring, making it hard to care or feel sorry for them. The novel was at times also hard to follow, because of the constant skipping around to different characters stories. This made it harder to make the connection between the characters to discover what was going on. The middle of the book contained too much extra "fluff", it took too long to get the story started. Toward the end of the novel, however, the suspense began to build slowly and the reader again wonders who committed the crime. As the story picks up Clark gives the reader a reason to suspect each character as the criminal. Clark begins to make the reader think about the different characters who could have committed the crime. This helps the ending become more of a surprise.
Clark uses foreshadowing fairly well in this book to suggest and to hint to the reader who the killer is. In this novel, Clark also uses irony. At the end of the book, for example, when the killer is revealed and the reader finds that who they suspected to be the killer was not the killer after all. Although some parts of the book were well written, the novel is not one of Clark's best because the story takes so long to pick up and get started.
