Mary Higgins Clark's 18th thrilling book, Pretend You Don't See Her, revolves around Lacey Farrell, a brilliant young player on the Manhattan real estate scene. Lacey is hired to help Isabelle Waring, mother of singer and actress Heather Landi, who was recently killed in an apparent car accident, sell Heather's luxurious skyline apartment. Isabelle doesn't believe that Heather's death was an accident, however, and her suspicions prove correct when she becomes the murderer's next victim.
Lacey takes a wealthy lawyer, Curtis Caldwell, to see the apartment, and he makes an immediate offer. But when Lacey returns to the apartment later that day, she accidentally becomes the witness to Isabelle's murder — and to Caldwell, a professional hit man using an assumed name, fleeing the scene. Lacey also hears Isabelle's dying wish — to make sure that no one but Heather's father, restaurateur Jimmy Landi, gets some pages removed from Heather's journal — and promises to comply. She does not give the pages to the police but does make a copy for herself before turning the originals over to Jimmy Landi, an impetuous act that proves almost fatal.
With a contract out on Lacey's life, she must go into the federal witness protection program, giving up her life, her job, and her very identity. But the killer traces her into her new life, and Lacey's only way out is to face down the threat against her by following the clues in Heather's journal. She finds herself caught in a race against time, struggling to figure out who murdered the two women beforeshebecomes the next victim.
