SEEN AROUND TOWN

Rarely does a drop of blood or chunk of gore besmirch the pages of a Mary Higgins Clark killer thriller. Hers are strictly millinery mysteries-well coiffed, perfectly made up, swathed in designer duds (not unlike the author herself). Such genteel murders obviously have a following-I’ll Be Seeing You has been on the fiction list for six weeks now. FICTION WEEKS ON LIST
