Never Saw Me Coming

Never Saw Me Coming

‘Impossible to put down’ Louise O’Neill, author of Idol


'Utterly Gripping' Sunday Telegraph

Meet Chloe. First-year student. Ordinary girl next door. Psychopath.

Chloe Sevre can be whoever you want her to be. A cool girl, a best friend, someone to tell secrets to over midnight snacks. She has an impressive IQ, loves working out and frat parties.

She's also a psychopath.

In between her university classes and taking part in a secret clinical study of young psychopaths, Chloe is plotting to kill childhood friend Will Bachman.

They say you should never trust a psychopath. But when you hear what Will Bachman did to Chloe Sevre, you might just change your mind...

**Perfect for fans of How To Kill Your Family, You and Killing Eve*

I fell in love with self-confessed psychopath Chloe on page one' Erin Kelly, bestselling author of Watch Her Fall

'Deliciously wicked and utterly addictive' Alice Hunter, author of The Serial Killer's Wife

  • I devoured this riveting book through a day of travel - in a taxi, on the plane, in the next taxi - and into the night. My desire to rush to the end clashed with my desire to savor every word. Who would be the last psychopath standing?
