The book is about a woman named Lacey Farrell, a real estate agent. One day, while showing a skyline co-op, Lacey is witness to a murder, and the dying words of the victim. The victim tells Lacey to take her dead daughter's jounal, which Lacey makes a copy for herself, then gives to the police. Lacey is put in the witness protection program and sent to live in Minneapolis. She then discovers that the killer has traced her to Minneapolis. Lacey heads back to New York, determined to find out who's behind the death's of two women, before she herself is killed.
"Queen of Suspense" Mary Higgins Clark writes about attractive, independent young women who are in peril. I always picture a young Jacqueline Smith playing all of her heroines. This novel is not one of her best. It is full to overflowing with a cast of forgettable characters meant to keep us guessing which one could be the villain. The plot unfolds at a snail's pace and is padded with minute and distracting details that lead nowhere. A new character, introduced in the last chapters, changes the outcome, which feels suddenly rushed and trite. Clark has written many nail-biting thrillers; Pretend You Don't See Her is not among them.
But Lacy? Boy, she is one foolish twit.
After witnessing a murder, she is warned that she is in danger. Does she listen? No. She can't leave her beloved family! Then - ooops. A member of her family is shot because she's too stubborn to listen to people who know what they're talking about.
She agrees to go into Witness Protection after this. She is TOLD, over and over and OVER again, that she must not tell anyone the truth about herself. After all, she almost got someone killed because of her stubborness.
Does she listen? NO. Her Mommy whines and pouts and snivels, and Lacy gives in and tells her what city she's in. Wow. It takes Mommy less than a day to do something stupid and betray her daughter's whereabouts to the hitman everyone knows is after Lacy. (I see where Lacy gets her brains.)
