This one is probably my favorite MHC book. Most of her stuff I find a little simplistic, and this was really no different, but the mixture of the writing style and the plot really added something this time around.
This was a great book that I couldn't put down. The whole story was brilliant and all the characters were well developed. I especially loved the way it didn't really unravel until the very end and there were several suprises. Even though I had a feeling of who the "bad guy" would turn out to be, there weren't really any clues. I only wish there was a little more to read about the main couple in the end. This book leaves you wanting to know more about the characters AFTER the mystery was over. It was a great read!
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.
