With just a touch, Miriam Black can tell when anyone will die. This knowledge haunts her as she tries to alter the course of her life and make amends for some of the wrongs in her past. One of these wrongs to make right is Wren, a young girl who seems to have followed in Miriam's killer footsteps. To save Wren, Miriam must confront old decisions and choices, including one who does not seem to stay dead. With a dark story line and an even darker protagonist, this vivid adventure takes readers on an emotional, violent ride.
VERDICT The fifth book in the series (after Thunderbird) drives further down the road into Miriam Black's life: the trauma, the fears, and the forgiveness. It will please fans of Joe Hill and Joe Abercrombie.
