Keisha Ceylon is a psychic. At least, that’s what she tells people. She watches the news for stories of missing people, then waits a few days and goes to see the family. She tells them she’s had a vision and that she may know where their missing loved one is—for a price, of course.
It's not often that you read a book about someone who is not the typical hero.
This book was refreshing. Usually this genre is a 'who done it' with the protagonist getting into more and more ridiculous situations in order to uncover the mystery. Whereas Never Saw it Coming was more of a 'who gets away with it.' It had such original twists and turns that I didn't see where it was going and was riveted. I also really liked reading about characters who are on the fringes of society. Who aren't good or bad, but are kind of grey and that I could relate to.
I highly recommend this book to fans of the mystery genre who are looking for something different. And Linwood Barclay is going on my 'authors I must read' list.
