My review of Never Saw It Coming by Linwood Barclay.
Blurb from the back cover
A little knowledge is a dangerous thing …
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…
My thoughts on the book
I really enjoyed Linwood Barclay's writing style. He gets to the point, but doesn't skimp on detail. I loved all the twists and turns along the way (which I won't spoil for you!). The character's were mostly believable and always relatable.
Conclusion and rating
A very good read. This was a new author for me to try, and I liked him very much. I will definitely be reading more of his books! 5/5
