Pretend You Don't See Her is Mary Higgins Clark's clever and terrifying new book. It is the story of Lacey Farrell, a young real estate agent on the Manhattan scene. In the mist of selling a late young lady's skyline co-op, Lacey is witness to the murder of her client, Isabelle Waring, the mother of the late Heather Landi. Ms. Waring is convinced that her attacker is after a journal kept by her daughter up until the day she died. Although Lacey hands over the journal to the police, it is not before she makes a copy for herself-a move that could turn out to be almost fatal. After numerous threats are made on her life, Lacey is placed in the witness protection program and moves to Minneapolis. Here, Lacey must assume a totally new identity until the killer can be brought to trial. At first, it was hard for Lacey to assume her new identity of Alice Carroll, but eventually she grows into the new Lacey. While in Minneapolis, Lacey becomes attracted to Tom Lynch, a local radio-show host. Tom and "Alice" go on a few dates, but due to all the confusion, Lacey breaks off their relationship. Shortly after her break with Tom, Lacey discovers that the killer has traced her to Minneapolis. Fearing for her life, Lacey returns home to Manhattan. Left with only her courage and the clues in Heather Landi's journal, Lacey races against the clock in search of identifying who was after her and the journal. Will Lacey Farrell live long enough to put her murderer away for good? Mary Higgins Clark combines murder, mystery, and fun together to make her fifteenth novel one of her best yet.
