Book Description

May 1 1996
In this mass market reissue from America’s Queen of Suspense, an investigation into the connection between a long-ago murder and a plastic surgeon’s obsession with a perfect face catapults prosecutor Kerry McGrath into the strange and ominous territory of those so hungry for beauty they’ll kill for it.

It’s a minor accident that brings prosecutor Kerry McGrath to the plastic surgeon’s office with her beloved daughter, Robin. But even as the doctor assures Kerry that her daughter’s scars will heal, she spies a familiar-looking beautiful woman in the waiting room and is seized by an overpowering sense of deja vu. When, on a return visit, she sees the same haunting face—on another woman—she has an intense flash of recognition: it’s the face of Suzanne Reardon, the “Sweetheart Murder” victim, killed more than ten years ago! But for what possible reason would Dr. Smith be giving his patients the face of a dead woman?

As Kerry immerses herself in a fresh investigation, each new piece of evidence she unearths reveals a disturbing cache of questions. Not only does everyone involved want to keep the case closed, it’s clear somebody will stop at nothing to keep it sealed forever.

Interweaving fascinating characters with deeply daring, staggeringly unpredictable plot twists, Mary Higgins Clark reminds us that she is, indeed, America’s Queen of Suspense.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

The latest from the Clark suspense factory has a spunky New Jersey prosecutor, Kerry McGrath, as its heroine in danger. Kerry has taken an interest in a 10-year-old murder case, in which Skip Reardon had been found guilty of slaying his beautiful wife, Suzanne, and has since been pleading his innocence from his jail cell. When Kerry's small daughter, Robin, goes to a New York plastic surgeon after a car crash, it is apparent that Dr. Smith, who was Suzanne's father, is weird. He seems to be fashioning the faces of young women to resemble his dead daughter?and it was his testimony that sent Skip to jail. Kerry's interest in the case (and her parallel interest in Skip's good-guy lawyer) may harm her chances of a judgeship, and it also draws the ominous attention of another possible suspect, James Weeks, a wealthy real-estate magnate with rumored mob connections. Then there's elegant, tasteful art burglar Jason Arnott, who had also known Suzanne.... As usual, Clark's plot, unfolded in dozens of short chapters, is convoluted, full of red herrings and finally wrapped up with a villain out of left field. The writing is crisp but colorless, characterization minimal, atmosphere nonexistent; but the cozy evocation of a deserving damsel in distress who attains a happy ending seems never to disappoint her legions of fans. One million first printing; major ad/promo; Literary Guild selection; author tour.

From School Library Journal

YA?Kerry McGrath, a young attorney on her way to a judgeship, seeks the medical assistance of plastic surgeon Dr. Charles Smith when her daughter is injured in a car accident. While waiting for Robin in the doctor's office, Kerry is amazed to see two women sharing the same face. She is further confused to discover that the face is that of Dr. Smith's own daughter, Suzanne Reardon, murdered 10 years earlier. Skip, Suzanne's husband, is serving a life sentence for her death. His attorney soon gets Kerry's interest in appealing Skip's conviction as well as attracting her romantically. The cast of characters includes Kerry's boss; her benefactors and great friends, State Senator Jonathan Hoover and his invalid wife; and her former husband, who is defending a Mafia client. All of their paths cross as Kerry must choose between her professional future and her belief in Skip Reardon's innocence. A suspenseful novel that's sure to please Clark's fans and create some new ones.?Katherine Fitch, Lake Braddock Secondary School, Burke, VA

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Suspence Great Ending June 27 2003
By A Customer
This was a really good book for MHC, she tends to leave a few unanswered question's in her endings, which I don't care for. Yet this was a good thriller and a surprise ending. ( I knew it ) but was still a blast. I think this is one of her finer novels. Closure is always good at the end of a complex story.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of Her Best! April 5 2003
By A Customer
Mary Higgins Clark is one of my favorite authors and I think Let Me Call You Sweetheart is one of her best books, if you like this author you will like this book and probably find it to be a page turner that you just can't put down until you've read the last page and it's a keeper too that you probably won't mind reading again. If you have read this book and liked it you should watch out for airings on TV of the movie starring Meredith Baxter as Kerry, I actually saw the movie first and liked it and it got me very interested in the book it was based on and now that book is one of my favorites!

4.0 out of 5 stars very cool book Aug. 28 2002
By Nazomi
Format:Mass Market Paperback
i think the best thing about this book is that how you keep changing your mind. first, you're positive it's dr. smith. then, it's definetely jimmy weeks. then you consider other possibilities. or is it really chip? but no, all these things come up, and you settle for what you least expected. and the reason i gave it 4 stars is because it's an all-event book, not the kind you can write a book report on. but it doesn't mean it's action action action. it's very decent and well balanced, and great for passtimes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the Best May 6 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Once again Mary Higgins Clark has penned a suspense that rivits you to the edge of your seat and has you bitting your nails. As with all Ms. Clark's novels this supurb offering will be read and reread by fans, old and new. Just as you think you know the identity of the culprit the plot thickens and you are again mistified. Another great read by the Queen of suspense.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Let Me Call You Sweetheart Dec 17 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is called Let Me Call You Sweetheart. The author is Mary Higgins Clark. This book is a murder mystery about a lawyer who finds some information on an old murder case. The father of the victim is a plastic surgeon and is recreating his daughters face on other women. She researches the case that no one wants to open up. She gets herself into trouble with the murderer.
I have read many Mary Higgins Clark books in the past. She is a great author, this book is no exception. It leads you through a maze of twists and turns and the conclusion amazes you.
I really liked this book. There are surprises everywhere. For example here is a quote from the book. "With a roar, the car came rushing across the road, seemingly aimed right toward her. Just as she thought it was going to come up the curb and hit her, it swerved into a U-turn and then raced down the block. page 117" It's great how Clark lets you think you have figured out who the killer is and then you get new information. I think that I am like the Kerry McGrath the lawyer. If I came upon some information that was important. I wouldn't listen to all the people who want me to leave it alone. I really like Clark's style, a few other of her books I would recomend and, Loves Music Loves to Dance, All Around The Town, and On the Street Where You Live. They are all murder mysterys. If you get scared easily or have nightmares about things you read, I would not recommend this book. It is pretty scary. One of the most scary things about it is that her stories seem like something that could happen to you, her characters are like people you know. If you like to be frightened I would definitly reccomend this book and many of her other ones.
