it was amazing

Anyone who ever thought it might be cool to be psychic should read this book. After waking from four years in a coma the brilliantly named John Smith discovers he has the ability to see a person’s future just by shaking their hand. Far from being the path to fame and riches, however, Smith’s ‘gift’ is essentially a life-ruining curse. Hounded by tabloids, religious fanatics, and desperate relatives, Smith is forced into isolation only to be dragged reluctantly into the hunt for a serial killer. Despite his success, however, Smith’s story doesn’t conclude with a triumphal return to normality. As the end of the world looms, his tale becomes one of sacrifice and unavoidable fate. A wonderfully sombre end adds much to a truly great horror novel.
