Blackbirds - Chuck Wendig

A low-rent itinerant drifter with a troubled past is somewhat out of the ordinary. When she touches people she will see exactly how and when they will die, if not exactly where. A smart and entertainingly foul-mouthed and black humoured young lass she gets into even more trouble than a life of paint stripper booze and petty crime of opportunity. A con artist spots her as a potential partner. A con artist with a load of appropriated drugs and a rather nasty pair of sociopathic henchpeople after him. This horror crime story is rather better than it sounds for the main character. A very good book. 4 out of 5
