When Athena disappeared from St. Polycarp's College at Oxford, her friends assumed she had run away - to hide from her overbearing, wealthy Greek family, or even to marry some unacceptable young man. To their shock, they find out at their 10-year reunion that her body has been discovered in an excavation. Private investigator Regan Reilly, Athena's former college roommate, is determined to track down her friend's killer. Despite a 10-year-old trail, she uncovers a host of eccentric and uncooperative suspects. A down-to-earth, likable heroine, a wonderful cast of eclectic characters, and a suspense-laden plot add up to an impressive first novel for Carol Higgins Clark. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessie | 2/20/2014

    " Although this is the "first Regan Reilly" mystery, constant references to past cases made me wonder if I had misunderstood. So that is a bit confusing but doesn't really detract from a cozy little mystery. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 vwool | 2/20/2014

    " decided to read all of the series with the Regan Reilly character and while it has so far kept me busy there is something missing... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Toni | 2/17/2014

    " I love the characters Carol creates in this series. Her writing is lighter than Mary Higgins Clark but I like her style. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandy | 2/9/2014

    " Immature writing style, not at all like her mother. Characters are believable, but descriptions and dialogue are lacking. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lee-ann | 2/3/2014

    " I liked this enough to want to read the next Regan Reilly mystery. The protagonist was humorous without being smutty. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 2/2/2014

    " This is another great Regan Reilly mystery from Carol Higgins Clark that takes place on a cruise ship. A good cozy mystery with suspense and intrigue. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Billie | 1/30/2014

    " The Regan Reilly series is a cute fun read. I have read each one in just a few hours. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 1/14/2014

    " I needed to take a break from book group/intellectual books and tried Carol Higgins Clark's first book. It was a light beach read, but not ridiculously far-fetched as many beach reads are. I'll definitely read more of her books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mare | 1/11/2014

    " Interesting; some what humorous. I'll read a few more to watch the characters develop. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 12/26/2013

    " I've read most of the CHC books. They are not as captivating as her mother's books but it is a decent read. She has the same character - Regan Reilly in all of her books. I"ll just add a few to the list. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Britney | 12/24/2013

    " I highly recommend this series. From book 1 to the end of the series I didn't want to put the books down. Higgins Clark is an excellent writer. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeanette | 12/16/2013

    " This was my first Carol Higgins Clark book and I found it very boring. The mystery progressed very slowly and was poorly written. I'm not sure I will try any others in the series although I hear they do get better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joyce McKune | 12/11/2013

    " Regan was at Oxford for her 10 year reunion when the body of her former roommate was found. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie | 12/3/2013

    " I really enjoyed this mystery. I got to think, just a little, and laugh, which is always a plus. I also enjoyed all of the characters in this book and the way you get everyone's point of view and you don't have to wonder or guess or make up stuff about some of them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pwilliams | 11/25/2013

    " This is Mary Higgins Clark's daughter. Only read this book of hers. Wasn't as quite as suspenseful as a MHC book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brittany Leder | 7/27/2013

    " From what I remember, I didn't like the way the story flowed. It also seemed far fetched. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie | 3/25/2013

    " Thought it was a whitty who-done-it. But it was extremely outdated being that it was written over 20 years ago. But enjoyed it nevertheless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connie | 3/10/2013

    " This is the first in the Regan Reilly series. It was about a murder of a classmate from 10 years prior. Regan sets sail with Lady Exner to the U S as her companion. Little does she know that someone is going to murder both of them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Veronica | 2/23/2013

    " I would have to give this book a 2.5. The characters were interesting but I'm more a fan of mystery then suspense and I called the killer pretty quickly. Still it was well written and an interesting read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maureen Farrimond | 12/23/2012

    " A little dated but a good murder mystery romp none-the-less. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 5/23/2012

    " Quick, easy. Good Beach read. Have read one further along in the series that I really enjoyed and thought I'd catch up a little on the history of the characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 3/3/2012

    " Eh, again just okay. I never realized that I've never really liked any of her books. They are ok, but definitely not great. They are something to read if you have nothing better to do. I really don't like being this harsh..... :( "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barbara | 1/2/2012

    " Way too many points of view for a book this size. Also the story didn't pull me in. I had to force myself to finish the book at points which is strange because it isn't that thick. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tammy | 11/19/2011

    " Carol Higgins Clark definitely did not inherit her mother's talent. I read her first 3 novels and threw them all away. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 11/12/2011

    " This was a really light, easy read. They mystery moved pretty slowly, but I really liked Regan and will definitely be reading more from this series. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stephanie | 10/25/2011

    " This book was just ok. A lot of fluff. Hopefully as the series goes on the books get better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kate | 9/2/2011

    " I vaguely recall unsuccessfully trying to get into this about 15 years ago, but since I just took a cruise I found new motivation. Not a bad run-of-the-mill paperback whodunnit with some witty moments, but needed copy editing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 6/22/2011

    " Quick, easy. Good Beach read. Have read one further along in the series that I really enjoyed and thought I'd catch up a little on the history of the characters. "

    " A good beach book. Although with temperatures in the 30's and 40's this week, I recommend staying inside and imagining a beautiful ocean or lake in front of you. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren | 4/7/2011

    " An enjoyable read. Nothing new here, just a good old fashioned whodunit. Easy and quick to read, with enjoyable characters and a well-paced plot. Good lazy Sunday reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie | 2/10/2011
