Death Wears a Beauty Mask and Other Stories
By - Mary Higgins Clark
From the first-ever published story (1956's 'Stowaway'), to classic 'Alvirah and Willy', 'My Gal Sunday' and many more, Death Wears a Beauty Mask and Other Stories gives readers the chance to revisit the short story highlights from the prolific 'Queen of Suspense'. As a grand finale to this collection of previously published hits comes a brand-new novella showcasing the dazzling and dangerous world of high fashion in 1970s New York City: 'Death Wears a Beauty Mask'.
When Janice steps off the plane in New York City with her new husband Mike, she can barely contain her excitement knowing Alexandra is waiting at the gate. It's been nearly a year since Janice saw her glamorous, fashion model older sister, whose busy workload even kept her from attending Janice and Mike's wedding.
But when Alexandra doesn't meet them at the airport as promised, Janice begins to worry. Even worse, no one has seen or heard from the beautiful model since she returned from shooting a campaign in Europe for the latest in luxury cosmetics: Beauty Mask.
As Janice and Mike race around New York searching for clues, they are swept into the secretive world of modeling agents, fashion photographers, and high-stakes advertisers who are all as desperate as they are to find Alexandra, and learn the truth behind the Beauty Mask.
