Publisher's Summary

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....

Boring, lazy & childish. Don't bother.

Sorry but this is just boring drivel. Words thrown together lazily by someone cashing in on a previous success. I'm about 2/3 of the way through and I don't give a toss what happens at the end. Waste of time & money.

Really tells me to listen to a sample first

Would you try another book written by Linwood Barclay or narrated by Francine Brody?

I love Linwood Barclay usually, but an unsympathetic heroine plus a one note reading seriously disturbed my enjoyment of this. I'd just buy the novel, if I were you.


What didn’t you like about Francine Brody’s performance?

Some people are talented, like the great Sean Barratt, for instance, at giving you a broad range of characters and a huge subtly of performance. Others are simply not, though they maybe great at being a character close to themselves. Lowering your voice an octave doesn't create a character. It's annoying.
