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 becomes the next casualty.

At once seductive and frightening, Pretend You Don’t See Her is the “mistress of high tension” (New Yorker) at her ingenious best.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The built-in risks, mystery, and strain of living under cover provide just the right foundation for the many-layered plot of Mary Higgins Clark’s latest novel.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • Pretend You Don’t See Her should come with a warning: Start it in the evening and you’ll be reading way late into the night…This one is well worth the lost sleep.”

    USA Today

  • “Thrilling.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “The story is briskly paced and features a few surprises.”

    Booklist

  • “A fresh bouquet of imperiled female virtue from ever-reliable Clark, who ought to take out a patent…Clark, by concentrating on what she does best—heavy-breathing menace as the hit man’s footfalls echo ever louder—has produced her most successful tale since Remember Me.”

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tina | 2/20/2014

    " I enjoyed reading this book and will probably read more books by this author. Not too heavy of a story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Delicious Strawberry | 2/15/2014

    " While I couldn't give this book 5 stars, it was still a good read, and shows off some of Ms. Clark's writing ability. I especially liked this book because of the surprises that kept coming, and racked my brain trying to figure out whodunnit to Heather Landi. The mark of a good book has a hard-to-figure out whodunnit, and this book is also nicely-paced. Classic MHC, a solid read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lindsay Allison | 2/9/2014

    " yeah, I actually finished the damn thing. I normally love MHC but the characters in this book were stupid and made one really dumb decision after another. Too many bad guys and players in this and just overall her weakest book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendyh | 2/5/2014

    " Very intriguing mystery. It wrapped up just a *little* too neatly at the end for me though, and actually left me with a few questions about some characters who were painted in such a way throughout the bulk of the novel as to have you questioning their character, then in the last chapter, a brief sentence or two was given to tidily explain their innocence. I felt like I was left a little dangling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanie | 1/25/2014

    " Lacey saw a murder and was put into the witness protection program and was sent away. She tried to be her own detective! This was a very good mystery that kept you wanting to turn each page quickly right to the very end! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 1/13/2014

    " There's not many books that keep me guessing until the last chapter who the bad guy is but Mary Higgins Clark did it. Good book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 1/6/2014

    " I really liked this book it was a page turner till the very end but i do have a question...how did they ever figure out that lacey was in Minneapolis? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Francesca Hurley | 1/2/2014

    " this was a good book. mary does go a little overboard on somethings, but this one was awsome. i could read it over and over again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leeyla | 12/22/2013

    " First book I've ever read by her, I must have been 14. Until then, I had no idea such things as witness protection programs existed. I felt so much smarter after reading this, ah ah ! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rrshively | 12/22/2013

    " I liked this book more than most mysteries. I liked the main character, and there were several people whom one could suspect until the end of the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Trish | 11/29/2013

    " "Pretend You Don't See Her" was an okay story. The plot contained a number of coincidences, which, while not completely unbelievable, made for a conveniently neat story. Different aspects of the mystery were somewhat predictable as well. Still, it is not a bad read to pass the time. "
