Amazon.com Review

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.

From Library Journal

Jayne Atkinson reads this suspenseful work with increasing credibility. Psychologist Susan Chandler, host of a call-in radio show, runs a segment on missing women. These women left behind only the suspicion of foul play. Susan had no way of knowing that the wrong people would be listening that day or that her program would set off another chain of murders with herself poised as the penultimate victim. Atkinson gives the myriad characters unique inflections. She is also effective at tracking the fast-paced point-of-view leaps that mark the abridgment; minor characters are thoroughly introduced and killed off all in a single paragraph. However, the red herrings are particularly well done. Unfortunately, when the killer is finally unmasked, his/her motivations aren't really defensible not even in the madness of a killer's mind. Nevertheless, Clark's popularity and Atkinson's skill make this a must-buy for public libraries.AJodi Israel, Norwood, MA

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.

I must admit I was not expecting much from Mary Higgins Clark after her last couple of attempts, and I was not disappointed. This is definitely the worst one I have read by her, however. I agree with some of the other reviewers who say that the identity of the murderer was obvious. There is no character development in this novel. What I found to be the worst part about this book was how perfect most of the people were: Susan is beautiful, charming, intelligent, well-dressed, has perfect hair, etc. etc. Plus most everybody was filthy rich. Am I seeing a pattern here? Not worth the time I took to read it.

Psychologist Dr. Susan Chandler hosts a radio call-in show. Her topic is the disappearance of women, including the vanishing of Regina Clausen. A caller, using the alias Karen, tells Susan that she experienced something similar on a cruise ship when a handsome man courted her and gave her a ring inscribed with the inscription "You belong to me". Karen says she also has a photo of her paramour. She will provide both to Susan.
However, before she can deliver on her promise, Karen is run over by a van. Most witnesses and the police insist it was an accident. However, one person swears the victim was shoved into the van. Now Susan, a former prosecutor, begins to investigate what happened even as she places herself in danger from a suave killer.
YOU BELONG TO ME is a superb thriller from one of the genre's all time greats, Mary Higgins Clark. The story line is filled with non-stop action and the lead character is a strong, but obstinate individual. The secondary players add depth, as several of them could be the murderer. Ms. Clark still has the finesse to provide her myriad of fans with a top rate reading experience.

I have read many of MHC books and I have found her latest a dissapointment. The characters completely fit the mold of her other novels and the plot is predictable. MHC is sticking to her plot formula a bit too closely and has forgotten to make it interesting. In her other novels she leaves you guessing until the last minute. Not this one! If you've never read a MHC then I suggest that you don't start with this one.

I really enjoyed the book. Sure, it's not a complicated book, and was a very quick read, but I still could not put it down.
It appears not to have done too well in the Amazon reviews, and is noted as not being her best. If that's the case, I can only imagine what her best must be like. I will definitely be reading more of her books.

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.
