Premonition by Wendy Whitman


Cary Mackin is a TV journalist who has covered crime for nearly twenty years. After losing her job she moves to a small town in Connecticut—only to get caught up in the web of a deranged serial killer.

Cary has a dark secret that drives everything she does: a deep-seated, lifelong fear that one day she will be murdered.

As the madman Cary stumbled upon continues to terrorize the beautiful countryside where she now resides, will her premonition come true?

Premonition…a psycho-thriller roller coaster ride that probes the dark corners of one woman’s seemingly overwhelming paranoia…or is it? From a crime and justice expert, Premonition nails every detail of the criminal mind, the hunter and the hunted. Premonition is full of twists and surprises…I love it! Bravo!”

—Nancy Grace, Founder,, Host of CrimeStories on Fox Nation, Sirius XM, and NYT Bestselling Author

Read an excerpt from Premonition

When Cary had trouble falling asleep, which was most nights these days, she thought about crime-related things. She pondered that she associated almost everything with murder.

If someone mentioned a place, say Chicago, it was the student nurse victims; Wichita conjured up the Carr Brothers’ killing spree and Dennis Rader; Indianapolis, the murders of seven members of the same family spanning three generations; and Knoxville, Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom. If she met someone from Seattle, the Space Needle didn’t come to mind, only Gary Ridgway.

What a warped view of the world she had.
