Zoe Walker is a commuter; she takes the same train route and tips the same guitar player in the station every day. She follows this predictable general routine until she spots a newspaper classified ad. A blurry photograph of Zoe is listed along with a phone number and address for a dating website. Intrigued at first, Zoe realizes that a different woman's photo has been running every day with the ad. She soon discovers that these women have been stalked, burgled, assaulted, and even murdered. Is she next? Mackintosh carefully builds suspense by alternating Zoe's obsessive, terrified first-person perspective with that of the third-person viewpoint of London police detective Kelly Swift. With insights into both sides of the investigation, readers will begin to believe that they, too, are being watched.
VERDICT Mackintosh's second novel, after her acclaimed debut, I Let You Go, is a chilling addition to the mystery and police procedural genres. The twists and red herrings will attract fans of Tana French and Lisa Gardner.
