#NEW #RELEASE #NEW #REVIEW "I See You" by Clare Mackintosh


The author of the New York Times bestseller I Let You Go propels readers into a dark and claustrophobic thriller, in which a normal, everyday woman becomes trapped in the confines of her normal, everyday world…

Every morning and evening, Zoe Walker takes the same route to the train station, waits at a certain place on the platform, finds her favorite spot in the car, never suspecting that someone is watching her…

It all starts with a classified ad. During her commute home one night, while glancing through her local paper, Zoe sees her own face staring back at her; a grainy photo along with a phone number and a listing for a website called FindTheOne.com.

Other women begin appearing in the same ad, a different one every day, and Zoe realizes they’ve become the victims of increasingly violent crimes—including murder. With the help of a determined cop, she uncovers the ad’s twisted purpose…A discovery that turns her paranoia into full-blown panic. Zoe is sure that someone close to her has set her up as the next target.

And now that man on the train—the one smiling at Zoe from across the car—could be more than just a friendly stranger. He could be someone who has deliberately chosen her and is ready to make his next move…

5 Stars!!!
You all know my favorite genre for quite a while anymore has been and still is Thrillers. This Thriller/Murder Mystery had me hooked from the very first sentence to the very last, and through everything that happens in-between. This is one of my favorites this year so far! This is this author’s second thriller, and her writing has NO problem immediately sucking us up into this book and keeping us on the edge of our seats until the very last page is turned! Get ready to lose sleep, everyone! It’s time to say, “Bravo”, again, to Clare Mackintosh for a second time in a row! You will NOT put this one down until the very end! I guarantee you this. I don’t care what you have planned the next day, but you WILL be reading well into the night!!! Plan accordingly.
Imagine someone you don’t know happens to know your every single move you make every second of your life, but you have NO CLUE as to WHO this person is! Imagine seeing your OWN photo being advertised in the local newspaper in personals website called findtheone.com! Yep! Zoe has a stalker. Someone is after her, and thankfully she does call the police into the scene, thankfully using her better judgement and not allowing her friends and family try to convince her it’s only a photo that looks like her because she knows it’s not. She knows she has a stalker after her. This person knows too many of her personal details for it to not be her. Zoe is looking over her shoulder at every twist and turn. No one knows who this stalker is, and each person she looks at could be the one. She is unnerved.
As you are reading this book, it alternates between Zoe, the Investigator who is Kelly Swift, and the stalker.
This was an excellent thriller. I enjoyed it very much.
I believe this book is being weighed too heavily against this author’s debut thriller, I Let You Go. I wish people weren’t comparing each book against the other, but I understand it. Her debut novel was so strong, very strong, but an author writes each book to stand alone and have their own merits. I believe everyone was expecting to get the same thing out of this second book that they got out of the first. Sure, I admit her first book was stronger, but it was a different book, a different story. Her next book will be different than these two books. This is the beauty of an author and how they write. They leave us wanting for more!! We WILL get more, too! Clare Mackintosh is here to stay and has a LOT of writing left inside of her to put down on the page for us! I truly do look forward to more from her! I highly recommend this book, and I am rating this book on it’s own merits as a stand-alone and am not comparing it to her previous book.
Enjoy your read!!
