Exploring the universal theme of fear, I See You, is a tense, electrifying thriller that will keep you looking over your shoulder. This audiobook will have you enthralled for hours and is a must-listen for fans of the crime genre.
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, no website - just a grainy image 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 psychological thriller from one of the most exciting and successful British debut talents of 2015.

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.
