The New York Times bestselling Under Suspicion series by the "Queen of Suspense" Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke returns with this gripping mystery following television producer's Laurie Moran investigation of the unsolved Met Gala murder—in which a wealthy widow was pushed to her death from the famous museum's rooftop.
Laurie Moran's professional life is a success—her television show Under Suspicion is a hit, both in the ratings and its record of solving cold cases. But her romantic break from former host Alex Buckley has left her with on-air talent she can't stand—Ryan Nichols—and a crippling sense of loneliness.

Now Ryan has suggested a new case. Three years ago, Virginia Wakeling, a member of the Board of Trustees of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and one of the museum's most generous donors, was found dead in the snow, after being thrown from the museum's roof on the night of the Met Gala. The leading suspect then and now is her much younger boyfriend and personal trainer, Ivan Gray.

Ivan runs a trendy, successful boutique gym called Punch—a business funded in no small part by the late Virginia—which happens to be the gym Ryan frequents. Laurie's skepticism about the case is upended by a tip from her father's NYPD connection, and soon Laurie realizes there are a bevy of suspects—including Virginia's trusted inner circle.

As the Under Suspicion crew pries into the lives of a super wealthy real estate family with secrets to hide, danger mounts for several witnesses—and for Laurie.

A fun read with a little different setting and plot line than most mysteries of this type. I enjoyed the characters and the settings. It’s not Pulitzer Prize-worthy literature, but it is a great piece of entertainment that is not too brain-draining! I also appreciate that it is available in the large print edition.

Mary Higgins Clark is an adult author that I will always make time to read. I love how her books are mysteries with a little bit of romance usually thrown in. Every Breath You Take is the 5th book in the Under Suspicion series and kept me engaged throughout the whole book. I love the main character, Laurie Moran, who is a television producer who tries to solve cold cases with her tv show.

Totally formulaic. Reads just like the previous one, with just a few different names.

Mary is better when she has help. No suspense in this one, though. Right away you know the killer.

A solid 4.5 stars for this 5th collaboration of Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke in the Under Suspicion series. This installment investigates a mysterious mystery at the Met making that iconic landmark a strong character in the book. I really enjoyed having the first ladies exhibit front and center, too.

There is definite and realistic character development among the team members and those close to Laurie Moran. A foundation is built for future episodes and I look forward to reading #6 next year.

Mary Higgins Clark has been a favorite author for a long time. This one is is in her "Suspicion" series --- so it's always nice to know the characters (having read the previous books). Another cold case to solve --- lots of characters come together -- plot twists & turns.

The wimpy Laurie Moran caves again. To Ryan. Some female executive. An embarrassment to women.

Enjoyable addition to this series of cold unsolved cases. Well done and kept the mystery as to the real killer to the end of the book. Enjoy these characters and the cases that they are involved with. Pleasant read for a quiet day.

Mary Higgins Clark is one of my favorite authors and when she pairs up with Alafair Burke to write a book, well then you have a winner. In this book, Lorie Moran, the person who had an idea for the hit TV show, Under Suspicion, takes on another cold case. She now has to find out who killed the wealthy widow, Virginia Wakeling. Was it her younger boyfriend, one of her children or someone else is the question. Lorie also has to come to a decision about her feeling for Alex Buckley. I enjoyed this book from beginning to the end.
