This book had me guessing who the culprit was from the beginning. I never guessed it would be...well, I'm not saying! It has some slow moments, but all in all, it was good.

From the published summary:
"Set against the glittering world of New York's fashion industry, While My Pretty One Sleeps begins with the murder of Ethel Lambston, a famous gossip writer whose forthcoming book threatens to expose the secrets of some of the most powerful- and glamorous-figures in the world of fashion. At its center is Neeve Kearney, owner of an expensive Madison Avenue boutique where Ethel shopped, daughter of a former New York City Police Commissioner, a beautiful young woman still trying to overcome the horror of her mother's murder seventeen years ago, in what seemed to have been a pointless act of revenge...
Drawn into the drama of Ethel's death, Neeve soon finds herself in danger, puzzled, as is everyone, by the sheer number of people who MIGHT have had a reason for the killing: the wealthy dress manufacturers whose mob connections and sweatshop factories have been exposed; Ethel's debt-ridden ex-husband, crazed by having to pay alimony every month to a woman who has all the money she needs and more; her ne'er-do-well nephew and sole heir, who has moved into her apartment, seemingly aware that she has disappeared...
Neeve plunges into this tangled, dangerous web, not realizing that her own life is threatened, haunted by the feeling that the clue to the murder is something she KNOWS, something which only she (and the victim herself) would have noticed, unaware that the killer is closer to her than she could ever have dreamed...
Richly peopled with fascinating, varied characters from every walk of life--a brilliantly gifted designer whose success conceals an awful secret; a Mafia don, just released from prison, who has vowed vengeance on Neeve's father and his family; a suave prelate who has almost reached the peak of the Catholic hierarchy; a vicious hit man, sworn to carry out a contract on Neeve's life; a brilliant young publisher who may, at last, be the man Neeve has been waiting for-- While My Pretty One Sleeps has all the pace, the excitement, the high-charged suspense, the romance and glamorous background that have made Mary Higgins Clark one of America's most popular writers."

THE DEAD WOMAN WORE RED... Gossip columnist Ethel Lambston knew everything about everybody who was somebody---so there were more than enough suspects in her murder. But for Neeve Kearny, owner of an expensive Madison Avenue boutique, the killing of one of her best customers had eerie echoes of another death that occurred many years earlier---the murder of her own mother. Suddenly, Neeve is plunged into the mystery of Ethel Lambston's murder, following a trail that leads from the glittering pleasure palaces of New York's rich and beautiful to the Mafia underworld. In the tradition of Mary Higgins Clark's staggering bestsellers, Neeve Kearny is a woman determined to find the truth, caught in a swirl of money and romance---and stalked by a killer who's closer than she could ever dream...

Neeve Kearny may be the only person in New York worried about the disappearance of Ethel Lambston. Ethel, a bestselling author famous for her juicy exposés, is one of the best customers at Neeve's exclusive Madison Avenue boutique. But Ethel's ex-husband, her parasitical nephew, and the fashion moguls skewered in her latest article all have reason to be glad she's no longer around.

When Ethel Lambston is found with her throat cut, Neeve's memories of her mother's long-unsolved murder loom up once again. Now as an innocent witness in the Lambston investigation, Neeve is drawn into a new nightmare...a sinister labyrinth of greed and ambition that will lead her into mortal danger...
