Vera Kurian is an up-and-coming voice in fiction and Never Saw Me Coming is her newest offering. In the book, you’ll meet Chloe Sevre, a freshman honour student who also happens to be a psychopath. She likes yoga, frat parties and also plotting to kill Will Bachman, her childhood friend who previously wronged her.
But Chloe’s not alone. She’s one of the students at her school who’s part of an unusual clinical study for psychopaths. Things take a chilling turn when one of the students is found murdered. A game of cat and mouse begins and Chloe is no longer a hunter but a prey.
