Description

Winner of the Richard and Judy Summer Book Club 2017

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: just a grainy image, a website address 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 . . .

Review

A good follow up to I Let You Go, which I thought was excellent, I See You is the second book from Clare MacIntosh. This is an interesting story of a woman, Zoe Walker, who sees her photo in the ads of a newspaper but she had not placed it there. She then sees other photos that link up with women who have crimes committed against them. She contacts the police and gets the BTP Officer who investigated one of the crimes. Agreeing that there is a link the Officer pushes the DI investigating a murder to see this. Getting onto the MIT investigation the officer works hard to help solve the mystery which has led to crimes from pickpockets to rapists and murders. As the police get closer to the answer, so Zoe continues to look into the situation and puts herself, and her daughter, into harms way. Will the offender/s be found before it’s too late?

This is a little complex and a bit creepy. You do have to accept certain suppositions, which may or may not be easy for you, and the final twist in the book makes it creepier and is perhaps appalling, even shocking.

A good book, well written and worth a read.
