Miriam Black is trying to live an ordinary life, keeping her ability to see how someone dies hidden...until a serial killer crosses her path. This is the second book in the Miriam Black series.

“Visceral and often brutal, this tale vibrates with emotional rawness that helps to paint a bleak, unrelenting picture of life on the edge.” —Publishers Weekly

Miriam is trying. Really, she is. But this whole “settling down thing” just isn’t working out.

She lives on Long Beach Island all year in a run-down, double-wide trailer. She works at a grocery store as a checkout girl. And her relationship with Louis—who’s on the road half the time in his truck—is subject to the mood swings Miriam brings to everything she does. It just isn’t going well.

Still, she’s keeping her psychic ability—to see when and how someone is going to die just by touching them—in check. But even that feels wrong somehow. Like she’s keeping a tornado stopped up in a tiny bottle. Then comes the one bad day that turns it all on her ear.

    " Wowzer! I picked this book up immediately after finished a different book & found myself glued to it til the sun came up. Just as kick ass as the first of this series. I can't wait to get my hands on the rest of them! (Please, Mr. Wendig, let there be LOTS MORE!) "

    " Outstanding sequel to Chuck Wendig's Blackbirds. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael Underwood | 1/12/2014

    " A brutal gut-punch of a novel. Wendig takes the acerbic reluctant anti-hero of Blackbirds and expands the mythology, meditates on death and killing, while showing narrow spots of light amid the darkness. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cameron | 10/7/2013

    " Improves on Blackbirds in just about every way. The layered history of the characters begins to reveal some complex, dense human drama, that feels real in every way. This contrasts with a nightmarish and almost hallucinatory plot that continues to surprise, over and over again. Nigh on perfect. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Brozek | 4/13/2013

    " This book is messed up and horrible in all the right ways. Miriam Black is still just as broken and foul-mouthed as she was in BLACKBIRDS. The mythology is intriguing and I'm kind of afraid to find out what happens next. "

    " I'm not sure why I finished this. Didn't like it at all. Not my style, and I think classifying it as "Fantasy," which is where my library put it and the only reason I picked it up, is way off. "

    " Cracking good read, hope there's more in this series. "

    " This one is so much better than the last one. I feel like the story and the characters were more developed. I really liked how the story un folded and I am interested to see where it goes next. Very dark and violent at times. "
