Manhattan Real Estate Agent Lacey Farrell witnesses the murder of a client and realizes the murderer is a man she showed the apartment to that very day. Before dying, the victim begs Lacey to read her daughter's diary, and says her daughter, Heather, didn't die in an accident. Put in the Witness Protection Program and moved to another city, Lacey continues to look into Heather's death. But when the killer discovers where she is hiding, Lacey is on the run and must uncover the murderer before she is silenced.

I listened to the abridged version of this book read by Randy Graff. Graff does an excellent job with the various characters in the story. The mystery is interesting, but drags in places. The villain was a surprise for me. I had guessed someone else. My biggest problem with this book was the heroine's TSTL moments. Telling people what city you are hiding out in is a really stupid move. My rating: 3.5 Stars.

"Pretend You Don't See Her" was a well researched book with interesting insight into the witness protection program. Unlike a lot of thrillers, this novel was easy to follow. However, the characters did not leap off the page and many of the scenarios seemed implausible. If I'd related better to Lacey, the protagonist, I might have gotten more chills on her behalf. Having said all that, this is still a good book to take on a plane or to the doctor's waiting room.

A real-estate agent can identify a murderer, so is put in a program designed to keep her identity secret thus keep her alive to testify. It seems she is the only person who can solve this crime so she can go back to her real life. Interesting.

Lacey Farrell, the heroine of Mary Higgins Clark's 15th novel, is having a bit of an identity crisis. While working as a real estate agent in New York, Lacey witnessed a client's murder, and now she's in hiding with a new name and a new life. But changing her identity doesn't completely remove Lacey from the web of danger and deceit that surrounds the crime; new clues keep popping up that suggest some kind of link between Lacey's family and the murder. Meanwhile, a new man comes into the heroine's life, further complicating an already murky situation. As any fan will tell you, Mary Higgins Clark never fails to deliver plot twists and turns that are as unexpected as they are thrilling.

From The Critics
Publishers Weekly
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 Laceyis perfunctory in the extreme. When the real villain is finally unmaskedin 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. Literary Guild main selection

Lacy Farrell is a real estate agent who is selling a condo for her client who lost her daughter in a tragic car accident. Her client is murdered and Lacy sees the killer. She has to go into the Witness Protection Program. Lacy decides the only way to get her life back is to help the police trap the killer. Can she do this or will the killer find her first.

This is my second favorite book by Mary Higgins Clark. It is worth the read and/or listening to it on Cd.
