** The Melody Lingers On by Mary Higgins Clark


The Melody Lingers On is a sometimes awkward mashup of the Bernard Madoff scandal and a Grisham-esque flight to a fiscal paradise, with the requisite psychopaths (two! how lovely!), damsel in distress (sigh), gauche nouveau riche (hey! 3 French words in a row!), and good looking, hard-working officers of the law (who will rescue the damsel, of course). All that means that reflecting upon the story will not evoke deep truths, but the tale is entertaining and the book short. I can think of worse ways to spend an evening.
