Review of I See You by Clare Mackintosh

Review of I See You by Clare Mackintosh

Thank you to Netgalley and Berkley for a copy of the eARC in exchange for a fair review.

Zoe is a normal Londoner going about her daily business when she catches a picture in the adverts that takes her by surprise. Her picture, but she puts it out of her mind when she brings it up to her family and they aren't for sure it is her, until she sees and recognizes another picture. She then contacts Kelly and informs her of a crime and the pictures.

PC Kelly is a disgraced police officer working at the BTP, while looking into theft and possible connection between Zoe, the other woman, Zoe contacts her again this time with a picture in the adverts and a recent murder. PC Kelly then takes it to the murder squad and attempts to get on the case.

Zoe is getting more and more paranoid especially after she trips and almost falls in front of a train. When she sees the man who saved her twice more after the rescue she begins to feel like she is losing her mind. Until PC Kelly tells her there is a website and people are paying for women's information in order to stalk them or attack them. The adverts are now linked to one theft, two murders, and one rape.

As the case gets trickier and trickier will Zoe be able to stay ahead of her stalker, or will she lose the battle. Will PC Kelly and the murder squad be able to find out who is behind it before it is too late?

I read Mackintosh's I Let you go and was blown away so when I saw this I knew I had to request it and hope they would approve me. It didn't disappoint, I was on the edge of my seat the entire book, I couldn't read it quickly enough. I was so wrong too, but I am not mad I love the twists they are so freaking clever, Clare is definitely on top of her game writing thrillers!

I can't wait to see what she writes next, but for now if you haven't read either book I highly suggest you get out and read them both!

  1. Hello Book Whisperer:

            I thought you'd might enjoy a free advanced release e-copy of the brand new sci-fi fantasy comedy 11,984.  This is not a conventional novel. It contains a lot of creative innovations, including punctuation from the future. 

            Thousands of years in the future, humanity has finally eradicated war, poverty, and all forms of human suffering. With no problems or unanswered questions remaining in the world, everyone is bored out of their minds, that is until the sun starts putting on a light show, the first warning sign it's getting ready to supernova!

           Our heroes from the year 11,984 are your typical family of two mothers, three fathers, a couple of kids, and plenty of robots. Fun-loving Troll, so called because of her giant troll doll hair(They don't have names in the future, or wear clothes) is the world's leading hydrologist/interior decorator, whose plans to retire quickly change when faced with the drought to end all droughts. Bulb, bald head glowing like a lightbulb, is the cranky Minister of Rational Thought. His faith in science is tested by the total collapse of society. Last but not least is Litterbot, the clumsy garbagebot who gets no respect, and whose highest priority--to clean--is frustrated by a world without messes. 

           As the family works on building an escape spaceship, the sun bombards them in changing colors, which unbeknownst to them causes radiation insanity. The sky colors keep growing stronger, and these totally peaceful people are at each other's throats. It gets so bad their bodies mutate (which helps them work faster) and world computer crashes (forcing them to read primitive paper books, and rely more on Litterbot.) Will they launch before getting smashed to pieces? 

          My first humor novel, Foxavier and Plinka, was published in 2013, and is also available.

    May I email the complete 11,984 manuscript of 75,000 words?

    Thank you.
