I would like to thank Berkley Publishing Group and NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book.

As a female, I was raised with words of caution that I always needed to do certain things to look out for myself, such as not going into certain parts of town alone after dark, or even alone at all. That I should carry my purse with its strap across my chest so that it is harder for someone to take it from me. That I always needed to keep an eye on what was going on around me and be aware of who and what is going on around me. I’ve even heard that it is not a good idea to get into the habit of following a routine for too long because someone could use that against you.

As a female who has been raised with these cautionary words ringing in my ears my whole life, I found this book to be the literary version of one of my worst nightmares come to life. In I See You, women who get into routines and follow that same comfortable routine on their way to work every day become the prey of men who may or may not have nefarious plans for them. And suddenly what used to be comfortable and familiar is frightening for the MC, Zoe Walker.

I distrusted almost every single male in this book by the end. I cannot think of another book where I have suspected so many different characters during the course of the story. Just when I was absolutely sure that I had figured it out, I would suddenly be absolutely sure that his next person was the bad guy, and off I would go again. And honestly, I loved every single minute. My blood was pounding and I was completely anxious for hours at a time while reading this book, but I was THERE…I was there on the Tube while Zoe was scared of everyone, and in her house, while she discussed things with her family. I was there with the police while they did their jobs.

I was able to experience this frightening story from the safety of my home, and I learned a lot. I got that (probably much needed) reminder that falling into a comfortable routine on one’s commute to work or school is not a good idea. As I’ve always been told, it’s best to mix it up with different times and different routes. Don’t make it easy for someone to take a shine to wanting to hurt you. Because while PROBABLY nothing will ever happen, who’s to know?

I’m giving this 5 stars because I really, really loved this book. I was emotionally invested and I lost myself in the story for what must have been hours on end without even realizing that time was passing.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own and I am never compensated for my reviews.

Clare Mackintosh’s debut novel I LET YOU GO was one of my favorite books last year, so I was excited to read her follow up. I SEE YOU is an intriguing blend of psychological thriller and police procedural told from different POVs in alternating chapters.

The story grabbed my attention right away. When Zoe sees her photo advertising a mysterious website, she is understandably concerned. Her concern turns to panic when she realizes other women whose photos have appeared in the same ad have become victims of terrible crimes. Who is behind this awful site, and is she the next victim?

I flew through this book quickly. The chapters alternated between Zoe, Kelly (a cop investigating the case), and a mysterious third person. The author did a great job of building suspense by ending chapters with mini cliff hangers. I had to cheat several times and peek ahead.

The premise of this book was an interesting and unsettling concept, especially in the social media age, though maybe not entirely plausible. While I was quite surprised to learn who was behind the website, I was a bit let down at the reasoning behind it. Overall, though, I enjoyed the book, and it kept me guessing about who the baddie was until the end.

When flipping through a London newspaper Zoe Walker comes across what looks to be a photo of herself in a rather sketchy ad in the classifieds section. No explanation of what the ad is meant to be about other than a website and phone number that doesn’t work.

The next day there is another ad with another woman, the day after yet another ad and another woman. Zoe doesn’t know what to make of the photos but when she finds that something starts happening to the other women pictured she becomes to determined to find out what is happening before she becomes a victim herself.

I See You by Clare Mackintosh was one of those books that was easy to become completely engaged in the story. This is the type of thriller read that gives me chills as I go along since the content seems so real to life that something like this could actually take place in today’s society which makes the story just that much more captivating waiting to find out just what will happen with our main character and how it will end.

The main character in this book is an average working mother who finds that she is being watched and really has no idea why or what it all means. With easy to relate to characters and a plot that seems like it could happen this was one that I just couldn’t put down at all. There are plenty of suspects to keep a reader guessing all throughout the book and wondering just how it will all work out in the end. Definitely one I’d recommend checking out if a fan of mystery/thrillers.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.

From my blog: Always With a Book:

My thoughts: Clare Mackintosh became an immediate fan favorite for me after her debut psychological thriller, I Let You Go, last year. As soon as I saw her new book, I knew I had to read it and once again, she managed to hit it out of the park!

Having just been to London myself, I could really appreciate this story. One of the first things my husband and I noticed is that there are cameras everywhere in London - very different from here in the US. So, I could appreciate the "eyes" on you feeling that Zoe got and that is a major part of this story. It's chilling - how often do we find ourselves doing the same thing everyday - taking the same route to work, park in the same spot in the parking lot, going to the same coffee shop at the same time, etc? Could someone pin point your exact movements based on your daily routine? 

This story grabs you from the start and doesn't let up. There are two strong female leads that narrate the story - Zoe and Kelly - as well as the perpetrator, who we do not find out the identity of until the very end. And let me just tell you, the sections told by this mystery person are quite chilling! I thought I had it figured out a few times as to who was behind everything only to be completely off-base - boy was I completely surprised when I came to the end!

Clare Mackintosh has proven with this book that she is definitely not a one-hit wonder! This book is just as good as her debut and I cannot wait to see what comes never from her...this girl can spin a mean tale!!!

Thank you to Netgalley and Berkley for a copy of the eARC in exchange for a fair review.


Zoe is a normal Londoner going about her daily business when she catches a picture in the adverts that takes her by surprise. Her picture, but she puts it out of her mind when she brings it up to her family and they aren't for sure it is her, until she sees and recognizes another picture. She then contacts Kelly and informs her of a crime and the pictures.

 

PC Kelly is a disgraced police officer working at the BTP, while looking into theft and possible connection between Zoe, the other woman, Zoe contacts her again this time with a picture in the adverts and a recent murder. PC Kelly then takes it to the murder squad and attempts to get on the case.


Zoe is getting more and more paranoid especially after she trips and almost falls in front of a train. When she sees the man who saved her twice more after the rescue she begins to feel like she is losing her mind. Until PC Kelly tells her there is a website and people are paying for women's information in order to stalk them or attack them. The adverts are now linked to one theft, two murders, and one rape. 


As the case gets trickier and trickier will Zoe be able to stay ahead of her stalker, or will she lose the battle. Will PC Kelly and the murder squad be able to find out who is behind it before it is too late?


I read Mackintosh's I Let you go and was blown away so when I saw this I knew I had to request it and hope they would approve me. It didn't disappoint, I was on the edge of my seat the entire book, I couldn't read it quickly enough. I was so wrong too, but I am not mad I love the twists they are so freaking clever, Clare is definitely on top of her game writing thrillers! 


I can't wait to see what she writes next, but for now if you haven't read either book I highly suggest you get out and read them both!

Sometimes you read a book and you decide that going outside is not worth it any more. The paranoia of who is watching you. The tickle in the back of your neck. That creepy feeling you get when something is just not right. All of those factors head the list with this read!

This book brings the goods and includes some police drama and action too! The author is very well versed in that arena as she is a past officer.

I See You is completely Engrossing! I loved every page and simply could not stop reading. Thankfully, I had a half a day set aside to devour this novel and that I did. With rich description and plenty of twists, this story kept me on my toes. I thought I had it figured out, but I loved that I was wrong! A stunning turn of events at the end that I certainly did not expect!

I love police drama, a bit of mystery, and suspenseful thrillers and this book hit all of my favorites. This author is definitely one to keep on your radar!

Completely by accident, Zoe Walker comes across an advert in the paper that happens to have a picture that appears to be of her. This discovery is strange and discomfiting, but it doesn’t really show her face and family is convinced it can’t be her because, why would it be? But it eats at her and she keeps checking the papers, seeing pictures of other women in the same advert, with similar pictures. Then one of the women has her keys stolen on the tube and Zoe contacts the police about the adverts. Then another of the women is murdered. Zoe doesn’t know what’s going on, but she doesn’t feel safe anymore. Who is doing this and why? And why have they chosen her?

One of my worries about this book was it wouldn’t hold up against I Let You Go (which I loved!). But it was brilliant. BRILLIANT!!! Clare Mackintosh is so very clever. The tales she spins are intricate and tricksy, so many amazing misdirections that I was never solidly sure who the perpetrator was. Her characters are well developed and easy to connect with. In fact, I’m left hoping that there is a chance at this being a first in series. There was certainly a door left open for it, and I enjoyed the pairing of PC Kelly Swift and DI Rampello. I would love to see them in future books. 
While I don’t know if I’d use the word intense, I would say that I picked it up intending to read for only an hour, and instead found myself finishing it just past midnight without realizing what I was doing. Putting it down simply wasn’t an option once I started. 

As much as I loved I Let You Go, I loved this book even more. So I’ll just be sitting here champing at the bit for the next one. No pressure, Ms. Mackintosh. No. Pressure.

My first experience with a Clare Mackintosh novel, I See You was a book that, in my opinion, lived up to the hype!  A perfect psychological thriller, from the opening pages to the epilogue, I See You had me on the edge of my seat.  I was completely gripped. 
 
The concept of this one had me completely creeped out; a woman, Zoe, finds her picture in the back of a classified under some sort of dating website. She brushes it off, more confused if anything, until she sees other women appearing in the ads.  Women that have become familiar to her; women she has viewed on television as victims of violent crimes.  Once the nature of the dating website is revealed, Zoe’s confusion becomes dread.  It’s an alternative dating website.  A dating website that women are a part of even if they are not willing participants.    As they go about their daily routines, men can choose and claim their prize.    They can see you. 
 
The creepiest part about this book was how real world it actually was; how many things do you do in a day purely out of habit?  You go to the same place for coffee, take the same route to work, visit the same grocery stores.  The fact that someone could choose to take the safety of routine and turn it into a nightmare had me feeling extreme paranoia throughout my reading!  Kudos to Macintosh for instilling this type of fear!
 
Full of suspense and dynamic characters, it is no surprise to me that this book is getting rave reviews.  I think I’ll take a different way to work over the next few days…just in case!

I really enjoyed how the pace of the book quickened at the end of the novel and really got your heart racing. I loved how Zoe finally took control of her life.

I See You really creeps you out in a lot of ways really builds up the readers anticipation of what will be revealed.

There is a lot that makes you think and look over your shoulder and look over your head to make you wonder who may or may not be watching you as you pass.

There are so many layers and possibilities that I was really sucked in from the start.

I do want to say that I gave the book four stars because its really great almost all the way through however I was a little disappointed in the ending because I thought there would be a super thrill explosive turn to wrap up the start that held me so intrigued all the way through. 

Regardless of not fully feeling the so so ending I did really enjoy the rest of the book and would highly recommend I See You to others.

Zoe lives an ordinary, everyday life until the day she sees a dating hotline advertisement in the paper while riding the train home from work.  Not normally something she would peruse in the paper but when you see your own face staring back at you from one of the ads you sit up and pay attention!  Convinced by herself and her family that it is just someone with a great likeness to her, Zoe moves on and tries to forget about the weird occurrence.  A few days later she sees something that changes her mind and convinces her it wasn't a coincidence.

     Clare Mackintosh has giving us a thriller with believable, relatable characters and a good case of the heebie-jeebies!  A single mom working and paying bills suddenly pulled into a city-wide mystery and the one and only policewoman who believes she has a right to be paranoid is a great story.  There were so many times I thought I knew who was behind all the craziness but then the next chapter would make me rethink everything!

     I See You is definitely a page turner!  This book had me stopping only long enough to make sure my social media securities were locked tight!

Last month I featured a week-long series on the blog where I highlighted upcoming novels I couldn’t wait to read. One day was dedicated to mystery and suspense novels and at the top of the list was Clare Mackintosh’s I See You. Hot on the heels of last year’s I Let You Go (or, at least here in the US – back in the UK it originally came out in 2014), I See You is another twisty ride with a premise that could easily have been ripped from the headlines.

Zoe is a creature of habit. Every morning she goes through the same routine, heading to the same platform to get on the subway, choosing to sit in a particular seat – her favorite. Naturally she doesn’t think anything of it and why should she? There are thousands of people who use the subway every day; why would she have to fear her routine has gone noticed?

It isn’t until she opens the paper one day that she realizes something isn’t quite right. There, in the classifieds, is an advertisement for a dating site – FindTheOne.com and while that’s not cause for alarm in itself, it’s the photo used that had Zoe do a double take. Right there, staring back at her, is a photo of herself. Her birthday isn’t for months, but one of her friends must be playing a prank, right? When she goes home and shows the photo to her partner and children, they insist that the grainy black-and-white picture does bear a resemblance, but with the woman’s back turned to the camera, it really could be anyone.

Still, Zoe isn’t convinced. Especially when each day the photo in the ad shows a different woman…women who turn out to be victims of violent crimes.

Right from the start I See You had me hooked. Zoe and her live-in (and much older) boyfriend are struggling to make ends meet. Her two grown children still live at home and are in no hurry to leave. Her boss’s moods vary wildly day-to-day, but she knows she has to take it all with a smile – she seriously cannot afford to lose her job. Zoe was entirely believable and relatable, particularly when she realized how much of her private life is easily accessible through social media sites like facebook.

Kelly, the other narrator in the novel, doesn’t have it any easier. After an altercation with an inmate left her with PTSD and a leave of absence, she’s back on the force, but in a severely demoted role. Determined to show her superiors she’s changed, that she takes full responsibility for what happened but is more than ready to return to her old job, Kelly just needs that one case that’ll change everything. Initially writing off Zoe’s concerns, Kelly soon notices a pattern between the photos and subsequent crimes and leaps at the chance to get to the bottom of it.

I know I’m being pretty vague, but I See You isn’t a book I want to spoil for anyone. As the story slowly revealed its secrets I couldn’t help but think of Law & Order – I can EASILY see this working as an episode! Several other reviewers have mentioned I See You doesn’t stand up to the success of Mackintosh’s debut, but I thought it was great! Admittedly, I haven’t read I Let You Go, so I have nothing to compare this one to, but I enjoyed it immensely.

Mackintosh doesn’t bring anything new to the genre with this book – it’s a British psychological thriller that starts out on a train, now where have I heard that before?? – but fans of quick-paced, intense reads will be sure to feel right at home here.

Mackintosh’ debut, I Let You Go was one of my favorite reads of 2016 so naturally I was so excited to read I See You but I was also slightly apprehensive. The overall plot, superb writing style and massive twist in ILYG was so stunning that I wondered if her sophomore novel would be as strong. I shouldn’t have worried one bit as ISY was brilliant and though it was different, it was just as engaging and addictive. 

Zoe is just an average woman living her life and I appreciated that she’s a middle aged woman and someone any of us could know or actually be. That’s what made this book so chilling, you can really envision this situation playing out in real life. When she first sees her picture in an ad in the paper she’s confused, but not overly concerned. As she begins to put the puzzle pieces together though she becomes paranoid and very worried. I can’t say I blame her, I would be too! We’ve all experienced the feeling of being watched before, but imagining how that would feel when you’re certain the person watching you has sinister motivations is so unnerving. When you add in that this is all happening during her generally uneventful daily commute, you have a claustrophobic environment that adds so much to the intensity. Zoe is surrounded by so many people, but that doesn’t make her safe, in fact many crimes are committed everyday without anyone even noticing, creepy stuff! 

Kelly is the police officer that helps Zoe and I warmed to her character just as much as I did to Zoe. She’s tenacious, determined and a total rule breaker, especially when she feels she’s doing the right thing. This is heavy on the police procedures, but it’s not dry or boring as Mackintosh’s knowledge of such things is apparent and interesting. (She’s a former officer herself) Besides being told from the two women’s point of view, there are terrifying passages from the person behind the website that add something very ominous to an already dark plot. 

I’ll stop with the plot details there, but if you’re already a fan of Mackintosh you’ll like this. As I said earlier, this is different but still very solid, edgy and dark AND she’s an extremely talented writer and storyteller. She crafts very well developed characters that are also wholly relatable making for a very gripping read. I was never able to pinpoint who the baddie was though at some point I was convinced every character was involved, and the ending was fantastic, throwing a sucker punch of a twist in the final page.

This was an absolute page turner, simply gripping (and I confess, a wee bit creepy). If you like psychological suspense, this book is for you! Red herrings, twists and turns, and ending that caught me off guard - and then the author added another twist that completely blew my mind.

Everybody has their daily rituals and routines. It's easy to just do what works every single day. But what happens when someone is targeting you because they know your schedule inside and out? How can you protect yourself from something you don't even know that is happening? Zoe happens to notice an advertisement in a newspaper with her photo and a listing for FindTheOne.com. Surely it's a doppelganger, and not actually HER, right? But when she starts noticing that others on the same type of advertisements end up victims of crime she wonders, is she next?

This book is told from Zoe's perspective, the perspective of Kelly Swift, the law enforcement person who believes Zoe and notices ties to these ads. But she has her own set of issues and will need to find a way to solve this without destroying her career in the process. We also get inside the head of the antagonist here and there and this villain is creeeeepy! I'm thoroughly amazed at Clare Mackintosh's mind. I want to crawl inside of it and live there to see how this whole story came together. As a New York commuter, I completely understood that feeling of being watched on the train, the "accidental" hand brush and being protective of my own belongings while commiserating with others on the train or making my own conclusions about people based on their footwear. Taking every day routines and bringing it into a plausible, disturbing scenarios will have me questioning every person on the train from now on. I'll surely be switching up my routine. Thanks Clare, you've made me a paranoid mess.

4.25-4.5 STARS

Zoe Walker is a 40-something divorcee, the mother of two, with a devoted live-in boyfriend.  She has a well-paying, albeit, mediocre job with an unsavory, stereotypical boss.  Her life in London is nothing short of ordinary.  Her daily routine is mundane.  That is, until the day Zoe discovers her photo displayed in a classified escort service ad. 

While unsettling at first, Zoe convinces herself that the photo is actually not her at all, but simply one belonging to a look alike.  But when Zoe discovers that a series of murdered women all had their photos featured in similar ads, Zoe fears she’s next in line.  The London underground, the escort ads and the murders are all connected in ways Zoe could never have imagined.  And when the evidence begins to point Zoe in the direction of someone too close to home, a deadly game of cat and mouse quickly ensues.  

In this day and age where “big brother” is always watching, comes a psychological thriller by Claire Mackintosh who takes this premise to a chilling extreme.  In her latest novel, “I See You,” the author poses the following questions… What if “someone else” is also watching?  What if this “someone” is a maniacal as they are clever--a person without empathy or remorse?  And how much danger would you be in if this apparent sociopath sold you out to the highest bidder?  With complex characters in combination with an intriguing and suspenseful storyline, “I See You” is a unique and captivating story that you won’t soon forget.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book!  I wanted to read this book after finishing the author's other title, I Let You Go.  This book kept me in suspense and guessing the whole time.  At times I did think you had to suspend belief just a little, but overall I just could not figure this one out and I love that about a book.  The storyline was different than many other suspense type novels which is always a welcomed change.  I will continue to seek out titles by this author in the future because I fly through these books.  The only thing that stopped me from giving it a 5 star rating were the times when things just didn't feel realistic to me, but it didn't affect my ability to get sucked right in to the narrative.

Clare Mackintosh returns following her smashing debut and international bestseller, (2016) I Let You Go, landing on my Top 50 Books of 2016, with a strong followup. A clever, gritty, dark and twisty psychological thriller, I SEE YOU.

Someone is watching when you least expect. 

FindTheOne.com is more than a dating site. An online matchmaking service for more than dating. Find the victim, and go for the kill. 

A commute to work. A dreaded task. The Tube. However, someone has hacked into the system and they are watching the daily routines of women. A devious dangerous plan. Cyber Crime, coffee shops, CCTV, money laundering, greed, stalking, adverts, a killer, FindTheOne.com, an ax to grind, payback, and murder. Trust no one. 

Middle-class Zoe Walker, a mother of two teens (Katie and Justin) -divorced, and dating a guy named Simon- must take the train to work. The only jobs worth taking were in zone one; the only affordable mortgages in zone four. She could only dream of working close enough to her home to walk.

On her morning commute she is shocked to discover in the London Gazette a photo of herself in the personal ads. FindtheOne.com. What the heck? She is looking at herself. A forty-year-old woman. The woman in the advert is none other than herself. Soon other women’s photos appear, and they end in a crime. 

We also are introduced to Kelly Swift, the detective who has been disgraced and back on the scene with the latest murders. Her departure four years earlier from British Transport Police’s Sexual offenses Unit had been rapid and uncomfortable. She had spent nine months off sick returning to what had been presented to her as a clean slate but was really a punishment posting. 

She had thrown herself into her shift work, quickly becoming one of the most respected officers on the Neighborhood Policing Team, pretending to herself she was a uniform cop through and through when every day she yearned to be dealing with serious investigations again. Will she lose control again?

The Underground Crime soars with the investigation into crime on public transport after record increases in reported sexual offenses, violent assaults, and thefts. Terrifying enough to make you stop using the Tube altogether. Kelly is back on the case full force. 

With sprinkles of spine-chilling words in italics, from the mystery person throughout the novel (the best parts). Told from three POV: Zoe, the mom; Kelly the determined police officer, and the creepy mystery person.

“I see you. But you don’t see me. You’re engrossed in your book; a paperback cover with a girl in a red dress. I can’t see the title but it doesn’t matter; they’re all the same. If it isn’t boy meets girl, it’s boy stalks girl. Boy kills the girl. The irony isn’t lost on me . . . You’re still reading. And I’m still watching.”

Zoe is worried for all the women and girls out there as well as her daughter and herself. She feels the danger. She cannot see it, but she can feel it. She knows it is getting close. 

“Routine is comforting to you. It’s familiar, reassuring. Routine makes you feel safe. Routine will kill you.”

"You never know where you might meet The One. A way of introductions between London’s commuters on FindTheOne.com. A matchmaker. A broker. A go-between. To give coincidence a head start. . ."

Soon the adverts are all-consuming for Zoe, and Kelly is determined to find the killer. They work together and believe the adverts are at the heart of the series of crime against women. What is the motive and who is stalking and preparing information on each woman? Who are the buyers/subscribers? These customers come from all walks of life. 

Who are these men? 

“They’re your friends. Father. Brother. Best Friend. Neighbor. Boss. The people you see every day; the people you travel to and from work with. You think you know them better than that. You’re wrong.”

The ruthless psychopath is more than a matchmaker. “Someone could be downloading your profile right now. . . A facilitator for desires hidden so deep inside they’re barely acknowledged. The chance to kill someone.”

From making notes of everything from hair color, body size, duration, availability, employment, routines, timing, locations, and a rating of easy, moderate, difficult. A cost. Chilling!

As Zoe and Kelly plan an attack, they are in danger as well as Katie. Any woman on the train could be the next victim. Once the photo appears, are they worth the amount someone is willing to pay to kill? 

With a cast of characters, the author leaves you in suspense as you doubt everyone close to Zoe. Who is the sinister mastermind behind this elaborate cybercrime – a deadly scheme of cat and mouse?

Mackintosh spins an elaborate set up with the slow burning background of Zoe and her family as well as Kelly. Two interesting women. The suspense builds to a fast-paced heart-pounding climax, with an array of red herrings. Readers will be mindful of their own daily routines and possibly be looking over their shoulders, or mixing up their daily grind. I know, I will. Take a different route, a different time. 

In our world of identity theft, technology, social media, and cyber-crimes, a horrifying fictional account, and yet a believable one which makes it even scarier. 

I See You, would make a great movie. You never know who is watching. Are we ever safe? Highly entertaining, suspenseful, and innovative. 

For me, the mystery secret person and the words in italics— "the icing on the cake." The twisty finale will leave you spinning. The secret is finally revealed. I was reminded of the final episode of Season One TV Series, Secrets and Lies. Deliciously evil!

Well crafted, Mackintosh once again uses her cop procedural expertise mixed with her fine-tuned writing abilities, to keep readers glued to the pages for a strong and gritty second installment. Highly recommend both books. 

A special thank you to Berkley and NetGalley for a complimentary reading copy, in exchange for an honest review.

This is one of those stories that has you looking over your shoulder. We live in a world that is constantly under surveillance. It seems common place to the point we tend to ignore it. Think of all of the criminals who are caught because they forgot there is the ability to provide surveillance in most every situation. Zoe finds herself stuck on a train on her way home one night. When she begins to read the ads in her paper she sees a picture of herself. There is also a website attached to her picture. Later she finds out that another woman who’s picture was in the paper ended up dead.  This pattern keeps happening and she is sure that she is being targeted.  I tend to do a lot of reading late at night after I’ve finished grading papers. This one had me so creeped out about being watched that I dreaded having to get out of bed and go to the bathroom. I kept hearing what are normal creaks of our house, but kept imagining someone was in the house.
We have Kelly a detective who has her own issues and is actually trying to build her reputation back up. She is one person who believes Zoe.  This is one of those books where things build up slowly until you suddenly realize how tense the situation is. I was unable to guess who was behind this. That is a plus for me. I hate reading a book and figuring things out so quickly.  I loved this book and the way it was written in different points of view.  This is a book that I will definitely recommend

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!
