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

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deadly Political Intrigue Oct. 5 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When her daughter Robin suffers facial injuries in a car accident , assistant prosecutor Kerry McGrath goes to the office of plastic surgeon Charles Smith. When Kerry sees a beautiful woman leaving Dr. Smith's office, she can't help feeling that she's seen the woman before. On the next visit to Dr. Smith, when Kerry sees yet another woman who looks strikingly similar to the first, she suddenly realizes why the face seems so familiar: it's the face of Suzanne Reardon, Dr. Smith's daughter, killed over ten years ago in the highly publicized Sweetheart Murder Case. Suzanne's husband, Skip, was convicted of the killing largely on the basis of Smith's testimony but has continued to proclaim his innocence.
Kerry's boss, Frank Green, made his reputation by successfully prosecuting the Reardon case. Now Green is preparing to run for governor, and Kerry herself is about to be nominated for a judgeship thanks to the recommendation of long-time state senator Jonathan Hoover, Kerry's friend and mentor. Hoover warns Kerry that looking into the Reardon case now could be a political embarrassment for all of them.
And then there's Bob Kinellen, Kerry's ex-husband, who's defending mobster Jimmy Weeks at his trial for tax evasion. Weeks was rumored to be having an affair with Suzanne Reardon around the time she was killed. When Kerry begins receiving threats of harm to Robin, she knows somebody has a good reason to keep her from resurrecting the Sweetheart Murder Case.
Another fantastic book from Mary Higgins Clark! Extremely suspenseful and satisfying!

2.0 out of 5 stars Toxic Aug. 17 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've always wondered why Mary Higgins Clark remains so popular, and LET ME CALL YOU SWEETHEART did nothing to provide me with an answer. Never mind Suzanne Reardon, the gorgeous brunette (aren't they all?) who turned up murdered ten years ago. The real corpse is the book, an uneven, utterly unconvincing piece of puerile fluff that I literally threw against the wall upon reaching its thoroughly implausible conclusion.
Clark's sole narrative strength is her control of pace--because her story moves so swiftly and her chapters are so short, it's easy to scarf down the cliche-ridden, plain-vanilla prose even while realizing that you're not enjoying a particularly imaginative or substantial meal. Here we have the same kind, intelligent, beautiful heroine who finds herself lost in a tangled web of murder and lies, yada yada yada...the only thing that distinguishes this bland protagonist from the other prototypes from Clark's feminist factory is her name, Kerry McGrath (God, even that sounds artificial). It really doesn't matter who killed Suzanne Reardon, because Clark doesn't seem to care one way or the other. As I neared the end, I started thinking, "Oh, God, no, she's gonna make the killer that person...no, not even SHE would stoop that low." But she did stoop that low. To me, identity of the killer wasn't just a lame disappointment--it felt like an outright cheat. Especially since I'd invested much more time and energy than these characters really deserved. Someone please explain to Ms. Clark that while it's OK to make the murderer the least likely person--Agatha Christie did it all the time--you might want to include a chain of logic (and maybe even a few clues would have been nice) so that it comes close to making sense, plotwise.
Speaking of the divine Dame Agatha, I think I'll go reread another one of her mysteries right now--that's probably the only way I'll be able to get that awful genre hackwork taste out of my mouth.

Let Me Call You Sweetheart by Mary Higgins Clark
This book was very good. I really enjoyed reading it. Although it starts off slow and out of nowhere, the plot thickens and it is a big surprise at the end. Suzanne Reardon, a wealthy woman, is murdered. Over her body are sweetheart roses, hence the name. Her husband was convicted of the murder. He is in jail for at least 30 years without parole. Ten years later, Kerry Magrath and her daughter are in Dr. Smith's office, for a plastic surgery counseling. Kerry sees a Suzanne Reardon look-alike. She looks into Dr. Smith and finds out he is Suzanne's father. This leads up to a number of other suspects including Jonathan Hoover, Jimmy Weeks and others that may have had interest in Suzanne. It leads up to the end where Dr. Smith is murdered as well. Kerry then finds out who the killer is, but not soon enough. She goes to the killer's house and she and Robin are to be killed until someone who couldn't before helps them. I recommend this book to anyone who is willing to stick with it and loves a good mystery story.
