In Clare Macintosh's new mystery-thriller, danger is always lurking around the corner, and 'someone' is always watching as fear overtakes Zoe Walker's everyday life.
With stalkers and thieves......rapists and murderers, bits of clues here and there kept me guessing and anxiously turning the pages to find the perpetrator of the deadly scheme; but then, at what should have been the most intense climatic moment of the whole story, the blow-by-blow (sadly) falls flat with an unconvincingly written encounter.
Now, despite my being somewhat disappointed at that crucial point in the plot, I SEE YOU is still a very good police procedural mystery (with a shocking twist) that the reader just 'might' see coming......or not, but (for me) it was just missing that 'big wallop' you find in I LET YOU GO
(A few typos and need of editing in my UK copy)
Routine is comforting to you. It’s familiar, reassuring. Routine makes you feel safe. Routine will kill you.
I see you. But you don’t see me. You’re engrossed in your book; a paperback cover with a girl in a red dress. I can’t see the title but it doesn’t matter; they’re all the same. If it isn’t boy meets girl, it’s boy stalks girl. Boy kills girl. The irony isn’t lost on me.
I wanted reassurance. I wanted to be told I was overreacting; paranoid; delusional. I wanted false promises and glasses-half-full. A few days ago I worried the police weren’t taking me seriously; now I’m worried because they are.
“Offenders, coppers, witnesses, victims … there’s one common thread running through them all, Kelly, and it’s that no two people are the same. Every victim deals differently with what’s happened to them; some are hell-bent on revenge, others want justice, some are looking for closure, and some”—he looked her straight in the eye—“some just want to move on.”
