From official release/information:
Miriam Black has a terrible power: one touch and she knows when and how you'll die. Once upon a time, that sent her life into a self-destructive nosedive. Now things are...well, maybe a bit worse. In Mockingbird, Chuck Wendig continues the story of Miriam, her faithful friend (and sometime lover) Louis, and a horrifying cycle of madness and murder.
Product Description: 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 around. 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.
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 stoppered up in a tiny bottle.
Then comes one bad day that turns it all on her ear.
