Summary

Mary Higgins Clark sends chills down listeners' 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.

Nix the narrator - good story

Really had a hard time listening to this one - good story - as usual with MHC - but this narrator is not Jan Maxwell. I am listening to another one now by MHC that is being done by another narrator and I am on the fence on whether to continue listening.

Thrilling

I've read this title years ago and found that it was still suspenseful. Always love MHC thrilling tales. The narrator was so-so but still enjoyed.

Enjoyable story, but not the best

Good story, characters and twists towards the end, but not a "wonderful" read. Just a nice, enjoyable story.

Yes because I got into the Killer's mind and wanted to see how it progressed

Thought the mother was a little selfish and naive

Was not sure I would enjoy a book with a different reader but she was quite good.

Kept Me Listening

Good storyline. Normal Mary Higgins Clark. Kept me interested and listening. For once I did not know who the villain was until the end.

MHG Never Fails Me

Loved It! The drama, who did it and the take down! I wish there could've been more Lacy and Tom.
