The author of the New York Times 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 a 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 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. 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 am loving Clare Mackintosh’s books. They’re just so intense and freaky to read. Especially this one, which definitely had me thinking by the end. The whole idea of the book is basically that you’re being followed, that we all have these routines and do the same things every day, that we’re easy to track, easy to follow. And that we don’t think about it, we don’t think about the possibility that someone could catch onto our routines and know exactly where we are at all times because we’re so damn predictable.
This book had me on the edge of my seat! I loved the bits in between the story where we got to see what the creator of the website thought, what they had to say. There are so many twists and turns in this story, that you’re kept guessing until the very end. Like, the very very end. I think what I love about books like this is that we’re not only taken along the main character’s journey, in this case Zoe, but we also see what’s happening with the police and the people working on the case.
I seriously can’t wait to see what Clare Mackintosh comes up with next – her books are such great thrillrides!
