I See You by Clare Mackintosh - Review and Short Videos


Seeing your blurry but recognizable photo in an ad for escorts caught Zoe Walker's attention, but no one in her family believed the photo was Zoe.

After seeing other faces in the same ad and seeing that harm had come to those women either brutally or by robbery definitely had Zoe worrying she was next.

I SEE YOU was confusing at first because there were too many characters, and making a connection took a while.

The plot seemed to go round and round and not get anywhere, but I didn't want to stop because I know Ms. Mackintosh throws in zingers and twists right up to the end.

The zingers started when Zoe's live-in boyfriend and her boss seemed to be suspects in the stalking. 


The ending was ​good and was worth the LONG wait for the suspense to begin.

I am wavering between a 3/5 and a 4/5 for my rating.

The 3/5 would be because it took too long for the suspense to begin.

The 4/5 would be because I SEE YOU dealt with a problem that technology​ can potentially cause as well as being helpful, the intense ending, and how the characters involved with the crimes were a complete surprise. 

I will leave it at that, and let you make your decision after you read the book.

This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation by the publisher in return for an honest review.

  1. I've read both of Clare Mackintosh's books and really liked both of them. They are a bit different in that, as you say, the suspense takes long in this one to ramp up, but I think the whole idea of someone watching you was so intense. Anyway, I'm looking forward to whatever she's working on next.

  5. When I read a book with lots of characters I sit there with pen and paper jotting them down and then referring to it every time I got lost. I haven't read any of her books but I know many enjoy her intense thrillers. Nice honest review!
