February 2013 Book of the Month and eBook of the Month.

With pacy plots and a pared down writing style Linwood Barclay continues to deliver very human thrillers, stocked with real characters drawn from small town America, that you can consume in a single sitting. A small time hustler, who poses as a psychic, gets much more than she bargained for when one of her supposed ‘visions’ is a little too near the truth. Another cracking thriller full of twists, turns and surprises from Canadian author Linwood Barclay.

Never Saw it Coming Synopsis

Keisha Ceylon is a psychic. At least, that's what she passes herself off as. The truth is, Keisha's real powers have more to do with separating troubled families from their money than actually seeing into the netherworld. Keisha watches the news for stories of missing family members. She gives it a few days, then moves in, tells these families she's had a vision, that she may have some clue to where these missing people are. And by the way, she charges for this service, and likes to see the money up front. Keisha's latest mark is a man whose wife disappeared a week ago. She's seen him on TV, pleading for his wife to come home, or, if she's been abducted, pleading with whoever took her to let her go. Keisha knows a payoff when she sees one. So she pays a visit to our troubled husband and tells him her vision. The trouble is, her vision just happens to be close enough to the truth that it leaves this man rattled. And it may very well leave Keisha dead...
