Linwood Barclay Month #3: Never Saw It Coming, The Accident


Keisha Ceylon passes herself off as a “mere” psychic. The truth, however, is that Keisha’s genuine abilities are a means of earning a living than they are about just seeing into another realm. She watches the news for stories of missing people and waits a few days before making her move. She tells these families that she has had a dream; that she may have a piece of information as to where their missing family members are.

The most recent client is a man whose wife has gone missing; she vanished a week prior to her vision. She had seen him on TV, begging for his wife to return home. If she has been kidnapped, he is begging whoever took her to release her. Keisha can already see the money coming in and she is determined to take full advantage of the situation. So, she visits the troubled spouse and lets him know of her vision.

Tragically, her vision this time happens to essentially be the truth, and it leaves the man shaken. Also, there is a huge possibility is will get Keisha killed.

Never Saw It Coming has the ideal title for the story it tells. Every one of its chapters closes with an extraordinary turn that leaves the reader on a magnificent cliff-hanger and begging for more.

It is set in the United States’ north east. The principle character, obviously, is Keisha Ceylon; a so called medium that makes her bread by offering her out-of-this-world communication skills to families who are in desperate need of locating a missing family member. In the not so distant past, she verged on being impugned as nothing more than a fraud. However, when she utilizes her dreams to effectively locate a runaway adolescent, one starts to wonder if Keisha really has this strange and wonderful ability after all.


Glen’s wife, Sheila, ought to have been home from her evening classes at this time.

As he and their eight-year-old little girl sit tight for Sheila to return, Glen soon discovers his most exceedingly awful apprehensions confirmed: Sheila and two others have been slaughtered in a fender bender. On top of that, the police claim Sheila was responsible. Glen knows it’s unthinkable; he knew his wife and she would never do a wonder such as this. When he explores, Glen starts to reveal layers of disorder underneath the serene surface of their suburb, mystery after unsafe mystery behind the shut doors.

Pushed into a vortex of corruption and unlawful movement, sought after by puzzling executioners, and confronted by dangers from neighbours he thought he knew, Glen must take his own desperate measures and go to terrifying new places in him to retaliate for his wife and secure his child.
