Clare Mackintosh, author of I See You

Every morning and evening, Zoe Walker takes the same route to the train station, waits at a certain place on the platform, and finds her favorite spot in the car, never suspecting that someone is watching her. 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, and Zoe realizes they’ve become the victims of increasingly violent crimes --- including murder.

I See You by Clare Mackintosh

March 2017

Clare Mackintosh’s last book, I LET YOU GO, was a 2016 Bets On selection and one of my go-to recommends as it had one of the best twists in a thriller that I have read. Thus I was anxious to get my hands on I SEE YOU, to see what she would do this time around. Once again she has written a twist into her tale, and again it is brilliant.

Week of November 6, 2017
