The Dead Zone by Stephen King

The Dead Zone

I listened to the audiobook version of this book and absolutely loved it! Johnny Smith had a hockey accident on the ice as a child, and then a car accident as an adult which left him in a coma for almost 5 years. His life not only drastically changed after he woke up from the coma, but he was given a special ability to see things both past and future just by touching people. Now he is on a case helping out the local sheriff, and a hometown hero.
