The Clairvoyants

(2017)
A novel by

 
 
Karen Brown's most hypnotic novel to date is Gothic-inflected psychological suspense that unmasks the secret desires of a young woman with a mystical gift.

On the family homestead where she grew up, Martha Mary saw ghosts. As a young woman, she hopes to distance herself from those spirits by escaping to an inland college town. There she is absorbed by a budding romance, relieved by separation from an unstable sister, and disinterested in the flyers seeking information about a young woman who has disappeared - until one Indian summer afternoon when the missing woman appears beneath Martha's apartment window, wearing a winter coat, her hair coated with ice.

Genre: Mystery    

Praise for this book

"The Clairvoyants is a deliciously modern classic ghost story, full of snowstorms and sly sisters and sorrowful, dangerous parties. Karen Brown has created a world in which the dead are as real as the living and the living cannot be trusted. I was haunted by my visit there and, like the ghosts that populate this taut and magnetic novel, I didn't want to leave." - Chloe Benjamin

"With an insightful and poetic voice, Karen Brown creates a mystical world filled with suspense, desire and lastly acceptance." - Lori Roy

"The Clairvoyants is a beautiful, spookily atmospheric, ridiculously accomplished novel." - Christine Sneed

"Karen Brown's The Clairvoyants is an eerie and affecting dose of Gothic fiction. Martha Mary would've been right at home in a Shirley Jackson novel. Martha sees ghosts, and by the end of the twisting, quietly unnerving story, you will swear you do too." - Paul Tremblay

"Karen Brown deftly manages to make the occult ordinary and the strange familiar in this surprising and suspenseful novel." - Lily Tuck

"Karen Brown draws us effortlessly into the mysterious world of The Clairvoyants, where the line between the dead and the living falls away. An enchanting novel that will keep you turning pages!" - Wendy Walker
