Observations on the travelling public

Wowsers!! With I See You, Clare Mackintosh has delivered another amazing take-your-breath-away page turner, which kept me reading until the small hours. This book is creepy and unsettling – particularly when you travel by tube everyday. A series of small newspaper adverts seem to be linked to a series of attacks on women. But no one takes Zoe seriously when she suggests this – not least the police. Only one maverick policewoman is prepared to listen…

Clare Mackintosh’s writing is fantastic- it’s atmospheric and envelops you like a dark cloak. There’s a sense of foreboding yet it’s so compelling you just can’t put it down! I absolutely loved her previous novel, I Let You Go,  which was one of my top reads of 2015 (despite having to give it some distance for a while due to its opening scene with a 5 year old boy).  

It’s an absolute stunner of a book. Cannot recommend it highly enough. I See You will indeed be one of my top books of 2016!

About this book

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 grainy image, a website address 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 the author of I Let You Go – one of the most exciting and successful British debut talents of 2015.


I See You is published on 28th July by Sphere, an imprint of Little Brown Book Group. To my utter delight, I received an ARC of I See You in exchange for a fair and honest review.

I am obsessed with books.  In fact, I'd rather be reading than doing anything else.   I enjoy trying out new books and new authors; I do like to "mix and match" genres.  I often have access to books before they are published and would welcome the opportunity to review most books... just not horror or sci-fi, please :)
