Publisher's Summary

Miriam is trying. Really, she is.
But this whole "settling down thing" that Louis has going for her just isn't working out. She lives on Long Beach Island all year round. Her home is a run-down double-wide trailer. She works at a grocery store as a check-out girl. And her relationship with Louis - who's on the road half the time in his truck - is subject to the piss and vinegar Miriam brings to everything she does.
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 stoppered up in a tiny bottle.
Then comes one bad day that turns it all on her ear.

This novel wasted of 9 hours of my life!

Miriam Black has the ability to tell when and how a person will die by touching them with a hand. Chuck Wendig has written a three books series about poor Miriam. Mockingbird is a bad novel written reasonably well. There are far too many good novels out there to waste time on this garbage.

- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"

Darkly delicious

What did you love best about Mockingbird?

I loved the noir urban fantasy feel to the story

What was one of the most memorable moments of Mockingbird?

It is hard to choose just one moment. The creep factor every time Miriam had one of her visions was darkly delicious.

I liked the matter-of-fact tone she used to portray Miriam

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
