Mary Higgins Clark has delivered to readers the fifteenth of her bestselling suspensers In the starring role this time is Lacey Farrell a big-wheel real estate agent Lacey sells luxury condos in New York City and becomes friends with one of her clients Isabelle Landi Their conversations are centered around Isabelles daughter who died a couple of years ago in a car crash however the mother is terribly disturbed because she does not believe that it was an accident She is convinced that the answer lies in a journal that her daughter kept until she died As a result of her curiosity Isabelle is murdered in her daughters apartment just as Lacey enters the front door In her final moments the dying woman gives her friend the journal -- which Lacey imprudently photocopies before handing over to the police Now she is herself targeted for death and the only thing standing between Lacey and a killer is the Federal Witness Protection Program On the run from the killer Lacey has been relocated to Minnesota and now has to wear a mask and embrace an identity that is not her own Looking over her shoulder every waking moment of the day she is far from having even the replica of a normal life To make things worse the killer has tracked her to Minnesota With the stalker too close for comfort she returns to New York in an effort to catch the killer and save herself The only element of the novel that intrigued me was the cat and mouse chase with the killer always two steps behind the victim Aside from this the novel had a lot of serious flaws The motive was not well illustrated and we never learn anything about the villain -- so when she is finally unmasked the reaction is puzzlement rather than catharsis Furthermore the motive turns out to be very unimportant compared to the number of lives
