Television producer Laurie Moran is delighted when the pilot for her reality drama, Under Suspicion, is a success. Even more, the program -- a cold case series that revisits unsolved crimes by recreating them with those affected -- is off to a fantastic start when it helps solve an infamous murder in the very first episode. Now Laurie has the ideal case to feature in the next episode of Under Suspicion: the Cinderella Murder. When Susan Dempsey, a beautiful and multi-talented UCLA student, was found dead, her murder raised numerous questions. Why was her car parked miles from her body? Had she ever shown up for the acting audition she was due to attend at the home of an up-and-coming director? Why does Susan's boyfriend want to avoid questions about their relationship? Was her disappearance connected to a controversial church that was active on campus? Was she close to her computer science professor because of her technological brilliance, or something more? And why was Susan missing one of her shoes when her body was discovered? With the help of lawyer and Under Suspicion host Alex Buckley, Laurie knows the case will attract great ratings, especially when the former suspects include Hollywood's elite and tech billionaires. The suspense and drama are perfect for the silver screen -- but is Cinderella's murderer ready for a close-up?… (more)

This was a very exciting introduction to a series that was new to me.
Laurie Moran and her team are preparing a reality show. It's about an unsolved old case where a young student was found dead in a park years ago. During the investigation, one witness after the other was murdered. Laurie discovered that everyone involved was in danger. She also found that it was all about money, power, envy and child pornography.
It was an exciting listening and kept me captivated until the end. I will read the rest of the books too. ( )

30% done: So many characters to keep track of. The flashbacks/intro for every single one is making me bored. Do I really need to know? I hope it will all make sense and significant to the main mystery.

This was my first book by both authors. It was a good quick read. I do wish there were less "flashbacks" or introduction. Aside from the main characters there wasn't much need to get in depth background of many side kicks, like Rosemary's neighbor, Lydia or the director's wife or Nicole's husband.

I enjoyed this book. I haven't read the first in this series but I will go back and read it. This book actually reminded me of MHC's former DIL's (Mary Jane Clark) books. TV Producer working on a new reality based series trying to bring new life to cold cases. ( )

This is the first book in a new series by two of the best suspense authors I read, Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke. Laurie Moran is a television producer of a new series called Under Suspicion. Her husband was killed a couple of years prior and this inspired her to showcase unsolved murders on her show to help bring closure to loved ones. In this installment of her show, she is showcasing a crime from twenty years prior known as "The Cinderella Murder". This mystery involves a famous movie director, a cult-like church and it's leader, a computer geek and a college professor. Several murders later and some embezzlement thrown in, the original crime is solved. As is usual in Mary Higgins Clark books, there are several suspects and the one that eventually turns out to be the murderer is not the one that is the most obvious. ( )
