Henry Parker Britland IV is wealthy and worldly—a beloved former president who, still youthful, is enjoying early retirement. His new wife, Sunday, is beautiful, smart, and seventeen years younger than he, and has just been elected to Congress in a stunning upset victory that has made her the darling of the media.

Henry and Sunday make a formidable team of sleuths—and never more so than when they set out to solve crimes occurring among their friends in political high society. With cases ranging from a crime on the presidential yacht to a mysterious murder implicating the former secretary of state, there is never a dull moment!

With her wit and gift for characterization, the creator of the popular Alvirah and Willy stories brings us another marvelously endearing sleuthing duo, destined to return again and again.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurie | 2/19/2014

    " This is a book of short stories about an all too perfect husband/wife sleuthing team. They are all too perfect in that they are rich, both attractive and all around too wonderful. Frankly, I found their perfectionism a bit much, and therefore, had to subtract two stars. The stories were okay, but there really wasn't any suspense involved because the couple was too perfect, so you knew that everything was going to turn out okay. Definitely not one of my favorite Mary Higgins Clark books. I would probably not read anymore about this sleuthing couple if given a choice. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jacqueline | 2/16/2014

    " This was an "ok" book for the lovely MHC. It's not my favorite, by far, but was a decent read nonetheless. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eddy Allen | 2/10/2014

    " A dashing ex-president and his young congresswoman bride become an irresistible sleuthing duo in four acclaimed stories from the Queen of Suspense. Henry Parker Britland IV -- wealthy, worldly, and popular -- is enjoying an early retirement. His new wife, Sunday -- as clever as she is lovely -- has just been elected to Congress in a stunning upset victory that has made her a media darling. Henry and Sunday make a formidable team...and never more so than when they set out to solve baffling high-society crimes. From a long-unsolved case they reconstruct aboard the presidential yacht to a kidnapping that brings Henry frantically back to the White House, the former president and his bride engage in some of the most audacious and original sleuthing ever imagined. Only Mary Higgins Clark can so seamlessly meld spellbinding suspense, wit, and romance. My Gal Sunday is entertainment of the highest order. "

    " Nice collection of short mysteries involving Henry Parker Britland IV( the former president) and his new bride Sandra O'Brien(also known as Sunday) who is a congresswoman. Hope to read more of these. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Creveling | 2/5/2014

    " I love Mary Higgins Clark and this book was actually pretty good. I am usually not a fan of short stories but I enjoyed all of theses except for the last one. I thought there wasn't enough suspense as in the others, and it "wrapped up" too quickly and simply for me. Otherwise, a nice read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andrea | 1/27/2014

    " I found this book less than suspenseful and predictable. This is a collection of short stories and each story was easily figured out before it was half read. The characters seems to me to be a bit out of step with the ages described and were a bit two-dimenstional. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 1/20/2014

    " This was 3 short stories with the same two main characters. It was good and a quick read. It worked out well to have it with me while flying. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn | 1/16/2014

    " I like Mary Higgins Clark books but this one, although enjoyable was not all that good. A quick read though. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Deborah | 1/16/2014

    " This collection of shorts about an American ex-President and his darling Congressman wife will suffice if this is the only book left in the hostel book swap and there is time to kill at a coffee shop. Even then, the minutes might be better spent people watching. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marie Howard | 1/16/2014

    " I have been a fan of Mary Higgins Clark for a while now. I usually enjoy her style of writing. The problem with this collection of short stories is....they are just too short. While the characters are likable, the plot line speeds along until a bad guy appears out of left field. The lure of a mystery is to try to figure it out before the last chapter. Not have it handed to you. Definitely would not recommend this book to anyone. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 JackieK | 1/14/2014

    " This is a book of short stories. The character weren't well developed or believable. They are perfect, flawless people. The stories themselves would have been better suited to a book instead of a short story. The book follows a formula that in a short story just does not work. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsay Nelson | 1/4/2014

    " Not bad, but not my favorite of her novels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 LeMira | 12/30/2013

    " I think I'd give this 3.5 stars. It's still a Mary Higgins Clark book, but it has four short stories about the same characters. I liked the characters although they were very fairytale-ish in the reality of them existing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 12/19/2013

    " This is a good mystery from Mary Higgins Clark. It deals a little bit of politics in Washington D.C. A good read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Telitha | 10/6/2013

    " Cute! Mary Higgins Clark's suspense stories scare the heck out of me so I don't read them anymore, but this was pretty low key and I got to enjoy her mysteries (this one has four short stories) without being scared to stay home alone. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 9/20/2013

    " Mary Higgins Clark writes a good, clean mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alice | 6/23/2013

    " Nothing special--interesting to read 4 short mysteries featuring the same husband a wife team. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gabrielle | 6/21/2013

    " Really good book I read it in a day. It has 4 short stories in it and they all involve the ex president and A woman named Sunday. Really good book it you love short stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurie Stoll | 4/26/2013

    " Such a small book with a big story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 4/7/2013

    " can't remember what this was about "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cindy | 3/3/2013

    " I really didn't care for this "Couple". Too cute and too predictable and totally unbeleivable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kori | 12/31/2012

    " This was a group of short stories. Good to read if you have time to kill and don't want to think very hard. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katy | 11/14/2012

    " This was a fun, easy read though a little predictable. I enjoy Mary Higgins Clark, but I thought that these short stories had characters that were too perfect and cheesy. I would recommend her other novels over this. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Frank Snell | 11/3/2012

    " These are novellas featuring Henry Parker Britland IV, the 44 year old multibillionaire ex-president of the United States, and his wife Sunday who came from poor but humble origins but is now the beautiful and brilliant lawyer, Congresswoman. It gets worse from there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaye | 9/22/2012

    " A nice gentle read. Sal is a congresswoman who has married the recently finished two term president. They are wealthy, popular and loving. The book is really four different adventures or mysteries. It makes me wish Clark had written a series with just these characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annamarie | 8/15/2012

    " Another hit out of the ball park! Mary is such a wonderful author I have never found another author that could measure up. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathi | 8/11/2012

    " Typical MHC. No depth to the characters, not enough information given to the reader to figure out what is really going on or how its going to turn out. But a quick read and easy escapism. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Whitney | 8/11/2012

    " Eh, it was okay. I honestly had no desire to keep reading any of the four stories, but I did want to get the book over with. The stories weren't that bad, but I just didn't feel drawn into them or care what happened--especially since it was obvious they would all have a happy ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 8/7/2011

    " There are four stories here with the same key charakters. The second story was good but the last two not really good. It just simple story with simple problem. No need really deep analysis. "
