Who knew Mary Higgins Clark was such a star in France? The Jerry Lewis of fiction writers? According to the Times, she hits the bestseller list over there regularly at #1, just as she did here last Sunday.
Coincidentally the other three new titles are all set in the states hardest hit by Hurricane Katrina.
At #1 is Two Little Girls in Blue by Mary Higgins Clark: "A small girl communicates telepathically with her kidnapped twin."
At #4 is Shiver by Lisa Jackson: "A New Orleans detective tracks a serial killer."
At #12 is Hey, Good Looking by Fern Michaels: "Family feuds and forgiveness in Baton Rouge."
At #16 is We Are All Welcome Here by Elizabeth Berg: "In Mississippi in 1964, a paralyzed woman struggles to raise her teenage daughter with the help of an African-American aide."
