|Plot Summary of You Belong To Me|
Dr. Susan Chandler, psychologist/radio show host, becomes entangled in a personal investigation into the disappearance of stock analyst Regina Clausen. Regina never returned from a trip on a cruise, and soon Dr. Chandler realises that it is a strong possibility Regina did not disappear voluntarily, and that there is someone with killer designs set on lonely women on cruises. Using her skills and contacts from her past career as an Assistant District Attorney, Susan draws nearer to the killer, but exposes herself to the same deadly danger as the cruise ship victims.

It's great to find a book you don't want to put down and can't wait to get back to. Dr. Susan Chander is host of a radio phone-in show. A discussion of a new book on missing women leads to a series of murders, accusations, suspicions and jeopardy for Dr. Chandler herself. Sister rivalries, love interests, a jealous husband, a porn-shop owner all combine to help twist the plot in You Belong To Me. A good old who dunnit.
This synopsis report prepared by Brian J. Perdue
my first Mary Higgins-Clark novel I was filled with anticipation about this renown novelist. It was a good read, gripping enough, but nothing too exciting. Reasonably predictable, but enjoyable. One of those books you can curl up with and finish quickly and feel like you've been told a good yarn. You know what's going to happen, but you're enjoying been told what you already know!!!!

A man is killing people just for the fun of it to go along with a song that is called you belong to me. He meets girls on a cruise ship and than convinces them to meet him off the ship somewhere. When they do they never come back. He turns out to be someone that you would never expect until at the end of the book. I never even knew who it was and I still don't believe it.

Susan Chandler, a r. Laura Schlessingeresque radio and clinical psychologist who takes it upon herself to solve the Missing Women mysteries. In doing so, she ties herself up in an intrigue that sets her up for the murder's target. Story line is fast moving, an easy read, al-la Higgins Clark.
