When Nell MacDermott learns that her husband, architect Adam Cauliff, and three of his business associates have died in an explosion of his new cabin cruiser, she is not only devastated but wracked with guilt. The last time she saw Adam, they had a bitter quarrel over her plan to run for the congressional seat long held by her grandfather; she had told him not to come home.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Mary Higgins Clark knows what she’s doing…This savvy author comes up with something unexpected…A hold-your-breath ending.”  New York Times Book Review
“For someone who loves plot, Mary Higgins Clark’s Before I Say Goodbye should be like manna from heaven…America’s ‘Queen of Suspense’ clearly knows what her readers want. Here she provides it, in spades.”  Los Angeles Times
“Clark has always been a master plotter, and her shrewd use of clever red herrings makes Before I Say Good-bye a treat for mystery fans. The characters are complex enough to be intriguing, imperfect enough to seem real, and enmeshed in a story that bundles up several deadly sins—avarice, envy, pride, and wrath. The twists and turns will keep readers enthralled and guessing right up until the end…Clark at her chilling and charming best.”  Barnes & Noble, editorial review
“Clark, in her latest thriller, is back at her page-turning best…As always, the elements of Clark’s plot masterfully converge to reveal the killer. A fast-paced, fun ride that leaves the reader guessing until the end.”  Booklist
