'Fascinating.' Hilary Mantel 'Terrific.' New Scientist 'Gripping.' Financial Times 'Stunning . . . Brimming with mystery and suffesed with haunting atmosphere.' Patrick Radden Keefe What if you had a vision that something terrible was going to happen? A train crash, a department store fire, an assassination. What if you could share your vision, and prevent a disaster? In 1966, John Barker, a British psychiatrist working in an outdated British mental hospital, established the Premonitions Bureau to investigate this very idea. He would find a network of curious correspondents, and among them two highly gifted 'percipients'. Together, they predicted calamities and international incidents with uncanny accuracy. And then, they gave Barker their most disturbing warning: that he was about to die.

Recensioner i media

'Strange and gripping . . . the most hardened sceptic can't fail to be electrified by the stories.' - Guardian 'Knight's writing is so lucid and wryly authoritative that it never fails to hold you . . . A brilliant book, by turns disarming, thought-provoking and spooky.' - Irish Independent
