LoveReading View on Never Saw it Coming

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. So she says. The truth is, she watches the news for stories of missing family members, gives it a few days, then tells these families she's had a vision. She may be able to help. 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 for whoever took her to let her go. So she pays him a visit. The trouble is, her vision just happens to be close enough to the truth that it leaves the man rattled. And it may very well leave Keisha dead...NEVER SAW IT COMING is based on the novella CLOUDED VISION, which was published as part of the Quick Reads programme in 2011.
