Keisha Ceylon is a psychic. At least, that’s what she tells people. She watches the news for stories of missing people, then waits a few days and goes to see the family. She tells them she’s had a vision and that she may know where their missing loved one is—for a price, of course.

Keisha’s latest mark is Wendell Garfield, whose wife disappeared a week ago. She’s seen him on TV, pleading for his wife to come home, or for whoever took her to let her go. Keisha tells Wendell her vision of what might have happened. Unluckily for Keisha, her vision turns out to be alarmingly close to the truth. As she wades deeper into the mystery, Keisha inadvertently finds herself caught in a web of suspicion and violence that’s much more complicated than she first thought—and which may end up with her own disappearance…


“A witty, thoroughly enjoyable tale of crime verging on farce.” Marcel Bermans, The Times

Never Saw it Coming, the film, is making the festival rounds. The film was shot last year in Sudbury, Ontario by director Gail Harvey, based on the book, with a screenplay written by Linwood Barclay. In Fall 2017 it was shown at the Whistler Film Festival, and in June 2018 it was selected for the Soho International Film Festival in New York, where it was nominated for Best World Showcase Feature Film. The movie stars Emily Hampshire, of Schitt’s Creek and the 12 Monkeys TV adaptation, Eric Roberts (of pretty much everything), and Katie Boland.
