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.
