The Reillys return home from a summer weekend looking forward to a quiet supper on their newly acquired rooftop terrace. But it’s not meant to be. While Jack goes to pick up Chinese food, Regan enters their apartment, unaware that a nervous thief is hiding in the front closet. A thief who knows about a hidden safe that Regan and Jack have yet to discover. Minutes later, a blackout strikes.

Meanwhile Lorraine Lily, an almost famous actress, returns to New York City the night of the blackout, after spending three months in England doing a play, and is informed by her estranged husband, Conrad Spreckles, that he’d sold his loft to their next-door neighbors, the Reillys. Lorraine had never told him about the hidden safe she’d had installed in the closet. If she doesn’t get back what’s in there, she’s sure her budding career will be ruined.

In Zapped Clark takes listeners on a tour of the city they won’t forget and introduces them to a wonderful cast of colorful, eccentric characters whose stories intersect in precarious and often humorous ways during one very dark and hot summer night.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Clark is among the few authors as talented at performing their books as they are at writing them. Humor is her specialty, whether understated or slapstick. With equal ease she captures eccentric gallery owners, bumbling housebreakers, wannabe comics, wacko jilted lovers, pathetic exes, and conniving teens.”

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jen | 12/8/2012

    " I got through chapter 4 and couldn't bear to go on. Vapid characters, horrible writing and ridiculous plot. Don't bother. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jen | 11/20/2012

    " At first I told myself it was just fluff, so lower your expectations... then it was just too unbelievable and contrived and forced and ridiculous. Still fluff, not horrible, not brilliant. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kay | 11/20/2012

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carly | 10/14/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suze | 1/6/2012

    " It was ok - quite a light read. I'd not read any others by this author/in this series. Book does stand alone and the premise was quite good "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 7/15/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 6/20/2011

    " Don't judge me too harshly for my love of lowbrow fiction! Carol Higgins Clark's books are as simple as her one word titles, but for quick poolside read they are just right. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 6/13/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April | 6/8/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bschulman87 | 6/5/2011

    " Read this on my Kindle. Quick and entertaining. "

    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barb | 5/29/2011

    " It was fun -- a simple mystery without being gruesome or gory. Regan Reilly is always good for a few laughs and is able to solve the case. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 5/22/2011

    " This was just OK. There were too many ultra quirky characters in this story. I like the Christmas books she writes with her mother much better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anita | 5/18/2011

    " This was a quick, fun read which all the Regan Reilley books are. Carol Higgins Clark does a great job creating a variety of interesting, and often twisted, characters and surprises you with who's done it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peggy | 5/18/2011

    " Although I don't like her writing as much as her mother's, and although everyone is a little-too-conveniently tied together, and although it's just mindless reading, I do enjoy her books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennie | 5/17/2011

    " Another fun read from Carol Higgins Clark. A light mystery, there are always lot of entertaining characters and enough twists and turns that while you may have met the bad guy(s), the end result isn't quite what you expected. Quick and fun, I always look forward to these releases. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 5/15/2011

    " Another quick read in this enjoyable series...I may be partial due to the "Jersey Shore"setting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 5/12/2011

    " Like all her Regan Rielly mysteries, this one was short, funny, and not too scary. A good choice for me when I don't have a lot of time to read. I can put it down for a day or so, and not loose track of the story or important details. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/10/2011

    " I love Carol's books (and her mom's) because they take place in New Jersey. I really like recognizing the towns and places in them. This book was a bit anti-climactic, but good. "
