Book Review: I SEE YOU by Clare Mackintosh

**Complimentary products received in exchange for our honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**

You do the same thing every day.  You know exactly where you’re going.  You’re not alone.

That’s the nerve-tingling premise behind Clare Mackintosh’s second novel I SEE YOU (Berkley Hardcover; February 21, 2017; $26), already a #1 London Times bestseller in the author’s native UK.  Like Mackintosh’s stunning debut I Let You Go, her new thriller kicks into high-gear from the first chapter and never lets up.  Perfectly paced and filled with twists and turns, I SEE YOU takes the comfort of a daily routine and spins it out in unexpected directions.

The follow-up to the international phenomenon I Let You Go—a debut that sold more than half a million copies in the UK and won the coveted Theakston Old Peculiar Crime Novel of the Year Award, beating J.K. Rowling’s pseudonym Robert Galbraith to win—I SEE YOU confirms Clare Mackintosh’s growing reputation as one of the most accomplished crime writers at work today.  Before turning to writing, Mackintosh spent twelve years as a detective and her police work informs her remarkably realistic, pulse-pounding thrillers.

About the book:
When Zoe Walker discovers her own picture in the local newspaper’s classified ads, she’s shocked.  A photo from her Facebook page accompanies a listing for a website called FindTheOne.com.  All Zoe’s efforts to discover what the ad means lead to dead ends.  And then a second woman whose picture appeared in a similar ad is assaulted.  When a third woman is murdered, Zoe’s unease turns to fear and paranoia.  The only thing the three have in common is their daily commute on the London subway system.

Someone is methodically tracking down these women...and Zoe is next on the list.

Told in alternating chapters by Zoe, troubled transit officer Kelly Swift who investigates when others refuse, and the clever killer stalking a new victim, I SEE YOU is an edge-of-your-seat read that will have you furiously turning pages, gasping at the plot twists (including a final chapter breath-taker), and marveling at Clare Mackintosh’s ability to craft a compulsive thriller that keeps you guessing at every turn.

My thoughts:
As a huge fan of I LET YOU GO, I was super excited about Clare Mackintosh's new book, and let me tell you, it did not disappoint!  I loved this gripping tale!!  I SEE YOU is a real nail-biter that leaves you hanging on to the edge of your seat and what a thrilling ride:)  I could hardly put this book down!  Mackintosh clearly has a knack for writing intense thrillers that are sure to intrigue and impress.  If you're a fan of this genre, you won't be disappointed with I SEE YOU.
