Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

I've never met someone like me, but when I do, eventually, I think it will be like two wolves meeting in the night, sniffing and recognising a fellow hunter.

Meet Chloe. First-year student, ordinary legging-wearing girl next door...and diagnosed psychopath with an IQ of 135. Her hobbies include yogalates, parties and plotting to kill Will Bachman.

Chloe is part of a secret clinical study of young psychopaths run by the university's psychology department. Most psychopaths aren't criminals, but when a string of murders on campus causes upheaval, Chloe's private vendetta is sidelined. Partnered with fellow study participants she can't trust - and distracted by typical university life - Chloe has to walk the line between hunter and prey.

Never Saw Me Coming is a sharp, electrifying and hugely entertaining thriller with an antiheroine who will work her manipulative magic on you.

Critic reviews

"Vera Kurian has put together a powerful puzzle of a murder mystery, as impossible to solve as it is to put down. What starts as a delicious thriller becomes a fascinating investigation of amorality, vengeance and redemption. A powder keg of a debut." (Robin Wasserman)

"Stick a bunch of devious psychopaths together and what could possibly go wrong? Find out in Never Saw Me Coming, a completely original, clever whodunit from a talented new arrival to the world of psychological suspense. Vera Kurian is one to watch!" (Mary Kubica, New York Times best-selling author of The Other Mrs.)

"Gripping! With a college campus setting, charming psychopaths and a bitingly clever voice, Never Saw Me Coming is a dazzling debut from a bold new talent." (Tess Gerritsen)

Good concept

I enjoyed the concept but the lead character wasn’t very interesting- even though I wanted her to be. Didn’t like the twist - didn’t make sense, but not bad overall.
