Publisher's Summary

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.

First novel effort

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No, not compelling/

How could the performance have been better?

Another narrator - please don't let Mary Higgins Clark narrate - keep her at the typewriter!

Could you see Decked being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No

Any additional comments?

Was expecting better.

No disrespect intended

The story was ok, not one of the best by the author. But then my lukewarm feelings for the book may be due to the narration.

I do not mean any disrespect, Mary Higgins Clark is a talented author, but ....please don't have her narrate any more books!

I've listened to hundreds of audio books and only been completely turned off by the narration on three of those, so I'm not that hard to please.

The narration on this book grated so severely on my nerves that I almost could not listen to it. I made it through, but it was actually a relief to get to the end of the story.

Not everyone has the talent to be a respected author, but not everyone has the talent to be a great voice over. Please respect a voice over's talent and hard work and don't narrate just because you are an author. If you must do so, then please take some more, many more, voice over classes before trying it again.

Great Mystery Writer

Really enjoyed my first book by Carol Higgins Clark, and the first in the series with Regan Reilly. I definitely plan on reading or listening to the rest of the series. Great suspense and intrigue with enjoyable characters.

Mother's Coat Tails

Someone needs to tell this lady she can't write. Certainly can't hold a candle to her mother.
