Summary
Mary Higgins Clark, la reina indiscutible del suspense, ha escrito un nuevo clásico para su biblioteca: una periodista va en busca de su madre biológica mientras ha de cubrir el juicio de una mujer acusada de matar a su rico marido. La reportera de televisión Delaney Wright está a punto de dar el salto a la fama al dar la noticia del juicio por asesinato en el informativo de las seis. Debería estar entusiasmada, pero en realidad solo piensa en su afán por encontrar a su madre biológica. En juicio por asesinato está Betsy Grant, viuda de un rico doctor que ha padecido de alzhéimer durante ocho años. A pesar de que su antaño famoso abogado la insta a aceptar la negociación de la pena Betsy la rechaza: irá a juicio para probar su inocencia. Alan Grant, el hijastro de Betsy, espera con impaciencia la sentencia, pues su sustanciosa herencia está en el aire y es su único medio de garantizar el pago a su ex, sus hijos y a sus cada vez más agresivos acreedores. Según se desarrolla el juicio y se acumulan las pruebas incriminatorias en contra de Betsy, Delaney está cada vez más convencida de que no es culpable y se consagra a la tarea de probarlo. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION In this exciting thriller from Mary Higgins Clark, the #1 New York Times bestselling "Queen of Suspense," a news reporter tries to find her birth mother just as she is assigned to cover the high-profile trial of a woman accused of murdering her wealthy husband. Television journalist Delaney Wright is on the brink of stardom after she begins covering a sensational murder trial for the six p.m. news. She should be thrilled, yet her growing desire to locate her birth mother consumes her thoughts. When Delaney's friends Alvirah Meehan and her husband Willy offer to look into the mystery surrounding her birth, they uncover a shocking secret they do not want to reveal. On trial for murder is Betsy Grant, widow of a wealthy doctor who has been an Alzheimer's victim for eight years. When her once-upon-a-time celebrity lawyer urges her to accept a plea bargain, Betsy refuses: she will go to trial to prove her innocence. Betsy's stepson, Alan Grant, bides his time nervously as the trial begins. His substantial inheritance hangs in the balancehis only means of making good on payments he owes his ex-wife, his children, and increasingly angry creditors. As the trial unfolds, and the damning evidence against Betsy piles up, Delaney is convinced that Betsy is not guilty and frantically tries to prove her innocence. A true classic from Mary Higgins Clark, As Time Goes By is a thrilling read by a master of the genre
