Publisher's Summary

In this new novel by the #1 New York Times best-selling author Mary Higgins Clark, the reigning "Queen of Suspense", a dark secret from a family's past threatens the lives of two sisters, Kate and Hannah Connelly.
When the family-owned furniture firm, including the mansion where priceless antiques are kept, explodes into flames in the middle of the night, Kate must escape to save her life. But the suspicious circumstances point to her involvement. Was the explosion set deliberately? Why was Kate, a gorgeous CPA for one of the biggest accounting firms in the country, on the premises at that hour? And why was Gus, a retired and trusted employee, with her? Now Gus is dead and Kate lies in the hospital gravely injured. Hannah, Kate's sister and a rising fashion designer, must discover what drew them there and what dangerous secrets lies hidden in the ashes.
Step by step, in a novel of dazzling suspense and excitement, Mary Higgins Clark once again demonstrates the mastery of her craft that has made her books international best sellers for years. Daddy's Gone A Hunting presents the listener with a perplexing mystery and a fascinating cast of characters - one of whom may just be a ruthless killer.

My Take:

I haven't read a Mary Higgins Clark Book in a good long while so I thought I would give her latest book a try.  This book is just like the other books of hers that I remember.  The mystery kept me guessing till the twist was revealed and it was all done with no language or sexual descriptions (although several of the characters are portrayed as being very free with their sexual favors).  

I thought that Jan Maxwell did a good job with the narration and I will be on the lookout for other books read by her.

If you have read Mary Higgins Clark before you will probably like this audio book.  I would recommend this book if you are more the type of person who likes their mysteries on the cozy side.  I will be looking for more.

I received a review copy fo this book from Simon and Schuster Audio in exchange for my honest review.
