"The Prediction" by Darren Sugrue is a true page turner. I could simply not put it away. Whenever I tried to, curiosity got the better of me and I had to continue reading in order to learn the answers to the many questions that keep arising while reading this book.

Who is the mysterious man at the supermarket? Where does the professor recognize the kid and his dog from, when he encounters them? Whose dates of death has the lead character yet predicted?

Sugrue's attention to detail, the in-depth description of the various characters, the events that connect them, and an intriguing plot twist which I would not have seen coming in a million years, make this a great work of literature. I can not believe it is the author's debut novel.

Additional details such as the author's love for the two cities where the story is set, Dublin and Amsterdam, and for fundamental values such as children and family, are obvious throughout the story.

I highly recommend this book. It will be an unexpected surprise. What will not be a surprise is when we will hear more of this author in the future.

This is a very intriguing story with an unusual premise, Daniel is a young man whose thesis which predicts the date of death was rejected twelve years ago. However his old tutor, now a professor grieving for his young son, tries to get him to re-present it because one of the dates proved came true.

As a debut novel this is an excellent story which grips the reader from the beginning. The action runs along two plot lines in two cities, Dublin and Amsterdam, John and Claire’s grief for their young son which neither are handling well, and Daniel’s pledge to save his former lover, Grace from dying on the day he predicted all those years ago.

The characterisation is excellent, in that Daniel Geller is a mathematician and thus pays intricate detail to everything around him, which helps him discover what is really going on. The ending was unexpected and very clever, leaving the reader with a few questions and a couple of loose ends – I look forward to more from this writer.

My only criticism would be there is a lot of padding which slowed the tension in places. A shorter manuscript would certainly not detract from the gripping story.

I received an e-copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review

Loved this book. To date I have read 62 thrillers this year and this is definaly one of the best and it shall stay with me for sometime to come. It had drama, excitement and sadness all rolled into one. I am so looking forward to his next book. Thank you Darren for such a heartfelt piece of writing. I have been to Amsterdam several times and your descriptions were dead on, I felt I was back there. Thanks.

I was gripped by this book within the first few pages. Loved the twists and turns and the final shocking twist at the end. As a distraction at a particularly difficult time it was a perfect way to immerse myself and escape especially in the long sleepless nights. The main characters were so well developed it was easy to care about what happened to them. Can't wait for the next book from Darren Sugrue.

My husband recommended this book to me - I wasn't so sure about it when maths and thesis were mentioned but what a great book this turned out to be. I couldn't put it down! I shall be waiting impatiently for more from this author.

Darren Sugrue's first novel, The Prediction, moves easily between Dublin and Amsterdam. There is excellent characterisation, particularly of the main character, Daniel Geller and his wonderfully written son, Sean. The plot is unusual and the story is well paced with a variety of unexpected twists and turns culminating in an unforeseen and surprising denouement. It is sensitively written, full of humour, suspense and well paced dialogue and I thoroughly recommend it.

I could not put this book down. It was recommended to me and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a thriller. The characters are very human, the setting (Amsterdam and Dublin) is described accurately and with humour, the subject matter is deep but doesn't explore the morality of the issue; that part is left to the reader. I could t put this book down and I don't think you will be able to either!
