I See You by Clare Mackintosh ~ My Thoughts


I See You

I See You by Clare Mackintosh
Kindle Edition, 372 pages
Expected publication: April 4th 2017 by Sphere

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 . . .

I See You is an edge-of-your-seat, page-turning psychological thriller from one of the most exciting and successful British debut talents of 2015.


My thoughts about I See You ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—"The man behind me is standing close enough to moisten the skin on my neck with his breathe. I move my feet forward an inch and press myself into a gray overcoat that smells of wet dog."

Clare Mackintosh has written another great thriller, an edge-of-your-seat kind of story with twists and turns that I never saw coming. And doesn't this title, I See You, just kind of put you on edge too? Creepy!

There are all sorts of suspects and bad people that you think are the good ones. Zoe isn't sure who she can trust. I felt pretty stressed out right along with her, someone may be trying to hurt her, but who could it be?

And wow, what an ending! It's that 'didn't see that twist coming' kind of ending. I've read two of this author's stories now and she is on my must-read list. Love her stories!

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
