Description
Queen of Suspense Mary Higgins Clark brings us another New York Times bestselling novel that she "prepares so carefully and executes with such relish" (The New York Times Book Review) about a witness to a murder who finds that what she's seen might make her the next casualty.
Mary Higgins Clark sends chills down readers' spines with the story of Lacey Farrell, a rising star on the Manhattan real estate scene. One day, while showing a luxurious skyline co-op, Lacey is witness to a murder—and to the dying words of the victim.... The dying woman is convinced that the attacker was after her dead daughter's journal—which Lacey gives to the police, but not before making a copy for herself. It's an impulse that later proves nearly fatal.

Placed in the witness protection program and sent to live in the Minneapolis area, Lacey must assume a fake identity, at least until the killer can be brought to trial. There she meets Tom Lynch, a radio talk-show host whom she tentatively begins to date—until the strain of deception makes her break it off. Then she discovers the killer has traced her to Minneapolis. Armed with nothing more than her own courage and clues from the journal, Lacey heads back to New York, determined to uncover who's behind the deaths of the two women—before she's the next casualty.

At once seductive and frightening, Pretend You Don't See Her is the "mistress of high tension" (The New Yorker) at her ingenious best.

        March 31, 1997
        There's no arguing with success, and no doubt Clark's eager following will lap up her 13th romantic suspense novel as eagerly as ever. All the elements are in place: an appealing, plucky working-girl heroine placed in instant danger; a virile, adoring would-be lover kept at arm's length until the curtain; a cute moppet (also in danger); a doting but somewhat foolish mother; a dead dad whose spirit is ever-present in times of crisis. What's lacking is any real suspense, or, in this case, a satisfactory windup. Lacey Farrell is a comely young real estate saleswoman in Manhattan who has a client, Isabelle Waring, murdered virtually before her eyes, then has to spend most of the book on the run from the killer, whom only she can identify. In the process she goes into the witness protection program, and the most interesting part of the novel (Clark is always good on research) is the details on how this works. The plot, however--involving Isabelle's certainty that her daughter was murdered, the suspicion that falls on the wealthy man who owns Lacey's real estate firm and his scapegrace son, and a hit man who remorselessly pursues Lacey--is perfunctory in the extreme. When the real villain is finally unmasked--in a few throwaway sentences--the reader has almost forgotten he existed and is given no clue as to how and why he did all his evil deeds. Maybe 13 isn't Clark's lucky number. 1.1 million first printing; Literary Guild main selection; author tour.

      • content: A woman's dying declaration, a blood-stained journal, and vicious predator whose ruthless tentacles reach far inside the NYPD Homicide Department are some of the elements that create suspense in Higgins Clark's novel. Lacey Farrell, a real estate agent in New York City, witnesses a client's murder and must go undercover for her own safety. Cecelia Riddett uses subtle inflection to reflect the strain of living under the Federal Witness Protection Program. She deftly delivers even the story's high drama, making it sound more plausible. While unraveling a growing number of knotted clues that seem to link her family to the crime, our frazzled heroine also manages to meet Mr. Right. K.A.T. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine
