Book Description

1 May 1998
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.

Product Description

Amazon Review

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. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

Ruth Coughlin Detroit News The chase is on, with the story line zipping along at comet speed.... What's amazing is how expertly Clark manages to keep us hooked time after time, and even better, create new plots, each as fresh as a mountain stream.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast-paced thriller 20 May 2004
Format:Paperback
I think I have all books by Mary Higgins Clark. This one is definitely her best. The story is credible, fast paced and exciting. You can't wait to turn the page to see what will happen.
Lacey Farrel, a real estate agent, becomes close friends with the mother of a girl who has recently died in an accident. Her mother is worried that it might not have been an accident at all. But the mother's concerns are ignored, until she is murdered - and Lacey is a witness to her brutal murder.
The only one to identify the killer, she is quickly placed in a witness protection program and cut off from her family. Time passes as she tries to survive, lonely in a strange city, far from her family, until she decides to take fait into her own hands. She decides to start hunting for the killer herself.
I've recently re-read this book and found it as thrilling as the first time (I'd forgotten the plot). The back of the book says "This book should come with a warning: start it in the evening and you'll be reading way late into the night". Not an exaggeration.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good the second time, too. 5 Mar 2006
By humanitysdarkerside VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I just finished reading "Pretend You Don't See Her" for the second time. I will definitely be reading it a third time.
What I liked about the book:
It is highly believable that when a (in this case) young woman more or less witness the murder of another person, she will be in a great deal of danger. As she is the only one to have seen the, thought to be dead, murderer, her danger is even greater. Now the murderer, in this case Sandy Severano, has a great incentive to kill her, and he is eager to have it out with Lacey.
I also really liked the uncertainty about who was the murderer's informant. It wasn't until the last few chapters that it became really clear who the culprit was.
What was problematic about the book:
Would a woman who knew that she was on the hit-list of a murderer, and had been taught how to behave as a witness-program person, enter into her old field of work? Would she also take the chance of informing her family of where she was? Perhaps, but I'm not certain I buy that. This does increase the suspense in the book. Without having a clue of where Lacey was, Sandy would have a difficult time beginning his search for her. It still made me unhappy. This was the only difficulty I had with this book.
All in all I thorougly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to any and all.

By Mr. A. J. Crook VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
i just finished reading Clark's recent "WHERE ARE YOU NOW" and wanted to be thrilled again!! so searched for a next one to get, and read some reviews on Amazon. The praises for "PRETEND YOU .." grabbed me so i ordered it on ebay for a mere 3! what a pleasure that was, i would say it was even better constructed, and so realistic: a witness to a murder hides under witness protection program, what happens next is Clark's usual talent at making us worried sick for her main female character, and for the first time in as long as i can remember i sat on my sofa and read 6 hours in a row, and RELUCTANTLY finished in 2 more hours the next morning!!! I SAY RELUCTANTLY, COS WHEN SOMETHING THIS GOOD HAPPENS, YOU DON'T WANT IT TO END!
the ending isn't as rushed as in "WHERE R U NOW?" which makes this book a perfect Clark all around!
10/10.
