Produktbeschreibung
Mary Higgins Clark, America's "Queen of Suspense," delves into the mystery of psychic powers and communication with the dead in her gripping new thriller, Before I Say Good-Bye.
When Adam Cauliff's new cabin cruiser, Cornelia II, blows up in New York harbor with him and several close business associates aboard, his wife, Nell MacDermott, is not only distraught at the loss but wracked with guilt because she and Adam had just had a serious quarrel and she had told him not to come home.
The quarrel was precipitated by Nell's decision to try to win the congressional seat long held by her grandfather Cornelius MacDermott. Orphaned at age ten, she had been raised by "Mac," as she called him, and was always at his side on Capitol Hill. Politics was in her blood, and Adam had known her ambitions when they married. Suddenly, however, he became opposed to her plan to run for Congress.
Nell, like her great-aunt Gert, possesses psychic gifts, which her grandfather scoffingly dismisses as "flights of fantasy." As a child she had been aware of the deaths of both her parents and grandmother at the exact moment they died. She knew because at that very moment she sensed their presence near her.
Even though Nell has the rare gift of extrasensory perception, she is much too levelheaded to accept most of the claims made by many so-called psychics and is skeptical about Aunt Gert's fascination with mediums. After Adam's death, however, Gert begs Nell to see a medium, Bonnie Wilson, who has contacted her, claiming she is in touch with Adam. Still regretting her last angry words to Adam, Nell agrees, hoping that she will be able to reach him through the medium and part from him in peace.
As the investigation into the boat's explosion proceeds, Nell is shocked by the official confirmation that it was not an accident but the result of foul play. Adam, an architect, had been involved in a major construction project on land he had recently purchased and which had since had a spectacular rise in value.
Was Adam the target of the explosion? Or was it Winifred Johnson, his self-effacing, fifty-two-year-old assistant, who knew too much about bribery in the construction business and who was openly in love with him? Or was it Sam Krause, a builder with a questionable reputation who was involved in the new project? Or Jimmy Ryan, the debt-ridden construction foreman whose wife, after his death, discovers money hidden in their home? Or was it Peter Lang, the wealthy man-about-town real-estate entrepreneur, whose minor traffic accident caused him to miss the fatal meeting on the boat?
As Nell searches for the truth about Adam's death, she carries out instructions from Adam transmitted through the medium. What she does not know is that she is being closely watched, and the nearer she comes to learning what actually happened on the boat that night, the nearer she is to becoming the next victim of a ruthless killer.

Autorenporträt
Das Erzählen lag der Tochter irischer Einwanderer einfach im Blut. Mary Higgins Clark wurde 1928 in New York geboren, ihr Vater war Besitzer von "Higgins' Bar and Grillhouse". So hörte sie bereits als Kind abenteuerliche Geschichten und lernte Typen kennen, die später als urige Charaktere in ihren Büchern auftauchten. Als der Vater starb, hatte die damals Zehnjährige ihren Traum von der Schriftstellerkarriere allerdings erst einmal ausgeträumt. Nach der Schule erlernte sie den Beruf der Sekretärin, arbeitete in einer Werbeagentur und als Stewardess. 1950 heiratete sie Warren Clark und hatte fünf Kinder mit ihm. Als Warren 1964 starb, musste sie allein für die Kinder sorgen. Sie besann sich auf ihr Schreibtalent und verfasste einen historischen Roman über George Washington - das Buch war nicht sehr erfolgreich. Aber mit ihren Kriminalromanen landete die Autorin dafür mehr als einen Treffer.
Inzwischen ist Mary Higgins Clark eine der erfolgreichsten Krimiautorinnen der Welt. Sie hat neben dem Schreiben ein Philosophiestudium absolviert und bekleidet heute mehrere akademische Positionen.

Das meint die buecher.de-Redaktion: Das tägliche Leben, Zeitungsartikel oder Gerichtsverhandlungen inspirieren Mary Higgins Clark. Wie man die nötige Spannung erzeugt, hat sie sich von Alfred Hitchcock abgeguckt - ein guter Lehrmeister!
