Trailer Park Tuesday: I See You by Claire Mackintosh

Welcome to Trailer Park Tuesday, a showcase of new book trailers and, in a few cases, previews of book-related movies.

The trailer for the new novel by Claire Mackintosh, I See You, is creepy as that guy in the coffee shop who keeps glancing up from his laptop to watch you carry your venti light-foam cappuccino from the counter back to your table on the other side of the room. The same guy who is still sending eye-flicks in your direction 10 minutes later. The same guy who packs up his computer and loose-leaf papers in his messenger bag, goes up to the counter to order another cup of coffee, then appears to be heading out the door, but takes a sudden detour at the last minute and decides to sit at a different table...just ten feet from where you’re sitting. Yeah, that guy. As the trailer for I See You points out, we live in a look-over-your-shoulder world. In the case of the novel, according to the publisher’s jacket copy, “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.” The trailer, culminating with an eye staring deep into the camera, is chilling as an ice cube some prankster slips beneath your shirt then stands back and laughs as the cold trickles down your back.
