I See You by Clare Mackintosh

Summary from Amazon:

     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

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…


My Thoughts:

     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!
