Death wears a beauty mask : and other stories
A collection of short stories from Mary Higgins Clark, including the never-before-published novella Death Wears a Beauty Mask.From Clark's first-ever published story (1956's "Stowaway"), to classic tales featuring Alvirah and Willy, My Gal Sunday and many more, Death Wears a Beauty Mask and Other Stories gives readers the chance to revisit the short story highlights from the "Queen of Suspense." The jewel of this collection is the novella showcasing the dazzling and dangerous world of high fashion in 1970s New York City: Death Wears a Beauty Mask, which Mary began in 1974 and put aside to write Where Are The Children, the book that launched her career. Mary returned to Death Wears a Beauty Mask nearly forty years later and the result is spectacular. Featuring the same chills and heart-pounding drama we've come to expect from a Mary Higgins Clark title, and including an exclusive author's introduction, Death Wears a Beauty Mask and Other Stories is a spine-tingling read and glimpse into the evolution of the remarkable career of the "Queen of Suspense."
