I See You by Clare Mackintosh Book Review


The author of the award-winning, smash bestseller, I Let You Go, propels readers into a dark and claustrophobic thriller, in which a normal, everyday woman becomes trapped in the confines of her normal, everyday world…

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 listing for a website called findtheone.com. 

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 rape and 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. For now 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…

“I see you but you can’t see me.”


This was on my list of Hyped Thrillers of 2017 that I yet have to read. The story follows Zoe a woman in her forties who rides the tube every day from work. As she’s sitting on the train on her way home, she flips on a newspaper, where she sees an ad with a photograph or she thinks it’s her. The Ad is a website findtheone.com with a phone number underneath.


When she goes home and shows it her children and her boyfriend, they think it’s someone who looks like her. However, she sees the Ad again showing a photograph of another woman.


I loved the idea and concept of the story also the mystery surrounding the story, it makes you wonder who is behind the website and who is putting these women’s lives in danger. The character of Zoe was likable, and I also liked the character of Katie the copper trying to catch the person behind this.


I don’t understand the low ratings on Goodreads. I enjoyed it and its well-written thriller. The way the book finished hint for a sequel.
