She was a mega-celebrity. He was a billionaire businessman. Now he's dead. She's in jail.
Laurie Bateman was living the American dream. Since her arrival as an infant in the US after the fall of Saigon, the pretty Vietnamese girl has gone on to become a supermodel, a successful actress, and, finally, the wife of one of the country's top corporate deal-makers. That dream turns into a nightmare when she is arrested for the murder of her wealthy husband.
New York City TV journalist Clare Carlson does an emotional jailhouse interview in which Bateman proclaims her innocence - and becomes a cause célèbre for women's rights groups around the country.
At first sympathetic, then increasingly suspicious of Laurie Bateman and her story, Clare delves into a baffling mystery that has roots extending back nearly 50 years to the height of the Vietnam War.
Soon, there are more murders, more victims, and more questions as Clare struggles against dire, evil forces to break the biggest story of her life.
Beyond the Headlines is perfect for fans of Robert Crais and Harlan Coben. All of the novels in the Clare Carlson Mystery Series stand on their own and can be listened to in any order.
