Summary

Winner of the 2021 Edgar Award for Best First Novel

In this sophisticated, suspenseful debut reminiscent of Laura Lippman and Megan Miranda, two young women become unlikely friends during one fateful summer in Atlantic City as mysterious disappearances hit dangerously close to home.

Summer has come to Atlantic City, but the boardwalk is empty of tourists, the casino lights have dimmed, and two Jane Does are laid out in the marshland behind the Sunset Motel, just west of town. Only one person even knows they’re there.

Meanwhile, Clara, a young boardwalk psychic, struggles to attract clients for the tarot readings that pay her rent. When she begins to experience very real and disturbing visions, she suspects they could be related to the recent cases of women gone missing in town. When Clara meets Lily, an ex-Soho art gallery girl who is working at a desolate casino spa and reeling from a personal tragedy, she thinks Lily may be able to help her. But Lily has her own demons to face.

If they can put the pieces together in time, they may save another lost girl - so long as their efforts don’t attract perilous attention first. Can they break the ill-fated cycle, or will they join the other victims?

A “beautifully written, thoughtful page-turner” (Chloe Benjamin, New York Times best-selling author of The Immortalists), Please See Us is an evocative and compelling psychological thriller that explores the intersection of womanhood, power, and violence.

Not very good

I really didn't like this one. It was boring, the characters were unappealing, and the author tried to integrate a not-so-subtle subtext about the subjugation of women. The narration wasn't great, either, especially the reader for Clara....way over the top. It was a struggle to finish this one.

Mediocre but fine if you need to spend a credit.

The writing was fine, and the performance was acceptable, but I kept waiting for there to be a deeper insight beyond glorifying violence against women. The author seems to hide behind her own womanhood and the fact that almost all the perspective characters are women, but they don't learn anything and this book miserably fails the Bechdel test.

Soooo good!

I loved this book. The story was interesting and dark. I will miss the characters now that it’s over. Caitlin Mullen brought the seedy and desperate world of Atlantic City to life. The narration was perfect.

Hard to listen to

The story was drawn out and at some points I thought I was reading a teen's book.

Ok narration but nothing to blow your mind.

Disappointing

A great listen

A cut above the usual serial killer type stories that are ten a penny. This was beautifully descriptive and interesting and I highly recommend it. Love the feminist themes too.

Kind of All Over

The story was mostly good, but kind of All Over and at times hard to follow due to rapid character/narrator changes. Unrealistic as well. Solid 3/5 stars in my book.
