I See You by Clare Mackintosh

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.
