You do the same thing every day.
You know exactly where you’re going.
You’re not alone.
When Zoe Walker sees her photo in the classifieds section of a London newspaper, she is determined to find out why it’s there. There’s no explanation: just a website, a grainy image and a phone number. She takes it home to her family, who are convinced it’s just someone who looks like Zoe. But the next day the advert shows a photo of a different woman, and another the day after that.
Is it a mistake? A coincidence? Or is someone keeping track of every move they make . . .
Here’s the thing about this book: it is a very strong thriller on its own, however I had such high expectations after reading Mackintosh’s I Let You Go, I can’t begin to compare. I Let You Go ripped my heart out and stomped it into a million pieces. While still a great book, I did not get anywhere near that dramatic reaction from this one. So my rating is skewed a bit due to my personal experience.
Clare Mackintosh is an extremely talented writer, she has crafted a fast-paced, well-developed plot. This felt more like a police procedural rather than a thriller at times, but both aspects of the plot are extremely well-researched and thought out.
While the reader is constantly second guessing every character, I did in the end, figure out the culprit, but then…BAM. In true Clare Mackintosh style she twists everything you thought was true and makes you look at everything in a different light.
I’m giving this one 3.5 stars rounded up to 4 because I loved the writing and I couldn’t put it down.
Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
