After police finally realize she is missing and not out on one of her infamous get-a-ways, they find her body in a nearby park. Suspects start popping up and the police start a search for Ethel Lambstonï¿½s murderer. Ethelï¿½s nephew moves into her apartment and starts inheriting her fortune. Him being her only kin he is surprisingly not disturbed by his auntï¿½s death, which makes him a main suspect for the police. Another suspect pops up which is Ethelï¿½s ex-husband.

Neeve Kearny struggles with her friendly clientï¿½s death and it brings back memories of her mothersï¿½ death, which happened 2 decades before. With a twisting and mysterious ending the two deaths are intertwined with a shocking murdered.
This was my forth Mary Higgins Clark novel that I have read, even though it was good, I must say it wasnï¿½t one of the best.Read more ›
When Neeve's mother was killed, her family thought it was Nicky Spetti, but when Ethel's throat is the same as the one on her mother's neck, Neeve thinks otherwise.
I liked this book a lot. There were three suspects, and you never know who did it until the last four pages. It was a page-turner. Also, this book was just real confusing, and that is what makes it so good. It is just one of those books that you can't put down. Wouldn't you like to read a book like this? I am pretty sure that I would. That is why I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is interested in reading it.
I read tons of books than this one. In the others you normally find out who killed the person in the middle, but then you have to find the person. In this one you find out in the last pages, and the person is right there. I think that this is one of Marry Higgins Clark's best books. I may have rated it a four, but that is because I think it could have ended a little bit sooner. I don't think that it should've been dragged on so long. It kind of made the book a little bit boring. Also, the book itself could have been more into the story. I mean, it really didn't need the part about her mom dieing, that could've been left out and they still could've found out who the murderer is, because it is a book, not real life/
Neeve Kearny owns a fashion shop in New York City. Her father is the ex- police commissioner and was just offered a job in Washington. Neeve is worried about her father because of his recent heart attack. Her father, Miles, is worried about her. Neeve's mother was killed years ago in Central Park while taking her morning jog. When Nicky Sepetti is released from jail, Miles becomes worried for Neeve's safety, because Renata's killer was never found. Sepetti was the expected killer.
Kitty Conway was a women of 58. She had strawberry blonde hair and gray eyes. She was at Morrison State Park when she first saw it. As her horse raced down an incline she thought she saw the impression of a hand within a bright blue sleeve. When she got home she keep thinking about the blue sleeve. Had she really seen it? She had to go find out. She retraced her steps and found a body. It was later identified as Ethel Lambston. Everyone thinks her ex-husband killed her, to get out of paying alimony. Now two people have been killed and one more in danger of being killed. If this excites you, read the book While My Pretty One Sleeps to find out who really killed them.
I enjoyed this book, because the excitement makes it impossible to put down. This book keeps you thinking until the end. If you love a book with suspense and character twists, give this book a try. If you love trying to figure out whodunit in a good mystery, you should read this book!
