The first book in the Miriam Black series: A sassy, hard-boiled thriller with a paranormal slant ("The Guardian") about a young woman who can see the darkest corners of the future.
Miriam Black knows how you re going to die. This makes her daily life a living hell, especially when you can t do anything about it, or stop trying to. She's foreseen hundreds of car crashes, heart attacks, strokes, and suicides. She merely needs to touch you skin to skin contact and she knows how and when your final moments will occur. Miriam has given up trying to save people; that only makes their deaths happen. But then she hitches a ride with Louis Darling and shakes his hand, and she sees in thirty days that Louis will be murdered while he calls her name. Louis will die because he met her, and Miriam will be the next victim. No matter what she does she can t save Louis. But if she wants to stay alive, she ll have to try.
Think "Six Feet Under" co-written by Stephen King and Chuck Palahniuk ("SFX"), and you have "Blackbirds" a visceral, exciting novel about life on the edge.
