The Foretelling

A novel by

Mystery Writers of America Presents:

An innocent game turns tragic

Drafted into telling fortunes at a fund-raising carnival, Angela Dawn prepares herself by studying a book on palmistry, never dreaming that lives will be changed by her predictions.

On carnival night, Angela sees things she does not want to see. For two people, she forecasts an early death. One receives her warning; the other does not. For her best friend she predicts a head injury and possible suicide. When an accident makes the first part come true, the prophecy threatens to become self-fulfilling. Will the rest happen, too?

The most glowing future goes to wealthy Glen Fabian. Glen is too sophisticated to believe in fortune telling, until the fulfillment of a tragic prophecy makes it all seem possible.

But there will be a high price to pay for his success.

Angela stands by helplessly as lives are shattered all because her predictions are taken seriously. No one believes her when she tries to convince them it was only in fun. As for herself, which will be her fate-the happy marriage or the early death?

Here is a chilling story of terror triggered by an innocent game, with few winners and many losers.
