“Danger feels real in the brilliant I See You…Mackintosh seems destined to do important work for many years to come.”—The Washington Post
“Mackintosh allots her characters the perfect amount of back story, allowing them to carry their own weight throughout the investigation. She also casts enough extras to keep readers guessing who could be behind these attacks…readers may find themselves wanting to reread this one.”—Associated Press
“[A] deliciously creepy tale of urban paranoia.”—Ruth Ware, New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in Cabin 10
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…

The characters were flimsy. Zoe was a wet lettuce and the family construct dull. A further loose storyline was Kelly and the demotion to the transport police for throttling a rapist, but even more pointless was the back story of the sisters rape (different rapist), which served only to add context as to why Kelly was demoted and that sometimes victims just want to move on. Again, more demonising of men, that crimes against women are rife, it was an ever present theme that men want to rape women, the sister, Kelly working in the sex crime dept throttling rapist, a rapist being captured as part of the investigation, Katie the daughter being set up to be raped and murdered within minutes of a profile release like all rapist and murderers wait by a laptop to be lured, broad daylight included.
The ending was farcical and things had picked up by then with lots of possible suspects for the bad guy, so a shame. The biggest moment of farce was Zoe paying £1000 on the ex's credit card to see the website for herself. Why pick the platinum package just to see first hand that you are on a website?
The reason behind the website would have been plausible as a money making racket, but all of the explanation around adding the daughter Katie because she always wanted to be centre of attention was again weakly offered as a reason. And the cat n mouse chase, hacking of cctv and putting the daughters profile out there meaning instantly rapist and murderers would go after her was ridiculous, and by then I felt my intelligence being insulted. Two stars for the idea of being watched, and how predictability does make us create patterns that can be exploited, and the writing style is good - pacy and descriptive. Three stars lost for veering into farce and offering characters with nothing robust meaning I cared little what happened to Katie in the cupboard!
I tend to go into these books with some trepidation, because I don't know whether I'll be completely taken by it or unable to finish them. I'm very pleased to say that Clare Mackintosh was able to make me think nonstop about this book! Seriously. When I put the book down, I was itching to pick it back up and find out what happens next. My husband was going crazy, because I was paying no attention to the children, and sneaking off to read another chapter of the book instead. I honestly could not stop thinking about it. I kept wanting to read more.
The thing is, it wasn't in any way a genius take on thriller-crime fiction. It didn't have like a fantastic twist or an incredible plot line, so my only conclusion is that Clare Mackintosh must be a great writer, because even though it wasn't the most creative story and it actually did have a lot of loopholes, she was still able to completely suck me in because of the way she told it. That's something. It's enough for me to want to read her other books.
The reason I gave it 4 stars was because the ending was a little...too much? Like it ends, and you think it's over, but then it ends AGAIN. On a cliffhanger of sorts. Like an open-ended conclusion that makes you wonder whether she'll make this into a series. And I was disappointed that it ended the way it did...I was disappointed that the true culprit turned out to be who it was, and the reasons behind committing the crimes were just...silly. Unbelievable. Not very credible. I mean, it was almost immature in its nature, and that disappointed me. If it does turn into a series, I don't know that I'll want to follow that story, but I would want to pick up other books by Clare Mackintosh.
I heard a lot about I Let You Go. So maybe that'll be my next read for her.
