 Wendy Peterson is a highschool girl from the small farming town of Crescent Mills, California with a special telepathic ability. She is able to tap into people’s minds and get them to reveal their innermost thoughts and secrets. When she leaves home to study criminal psychology at Oxford University, she not only meets the man of her dreams, but also the man of her worst nightmares. A serial killer who too has special unique abilities, but uses them for pure evil. Wendy is our only hope to stop him, but even she seems ill equipped to battle such powerful depravity. Desperate to protect and save the ones she loves, Wendy takes on the task to try and stop…. PATIENT – X.


Excerpt

Wendy Peterson was a small town girl from a small village in California known as Crescent Mills. The population of this village was a mere 250 or so people and comprised mainly of countryside and small family run farms. Unlike her brothers, Wendy longed to see the world and was fascinated by people and their problems. An avid listener with a non judgemental personality was perhaps one of the reasons why so many of the townsfolk felt they could confide even their deepest darkest secrets to her, even as a small child, but certainly wasn’t the only reason.

Not one for gossip, and almost biblical at keeping secrets, Wendy perhaps knew those who would talk with her regularly more than these people’s spouses, parents or immediate family. Like when Bob Terence confessed his secret love affair with Patsy Milton to her, or when Toby Tuckerton broke down in hysterics after he’d murdered his neighbour’s dog for keeping him awake at night. Wendy always felt compassion and empathy for those who spilled their darkness and was convinced that everyone was primarily good, but sometimes unforeseen circumstances or getting a little lost from time to time made people do bad things.



Professional Reviews

John D. Hill
Colin pulls no punches in the graphic depiction of gruesomeness as the leading protagonist risks all to save an unsuspecting public from a particularly nasty bad guy. Not just the story but an interesting concept on existence beyond death and the mystery of astral travel will keep the reader challenged throughout Colin’s first major work; I look forward to reading further tales of darkness and horror from the country’s newest literary talent.

Stephen McCartney
A gripping tale of a young woman’s tragic gift of insight that locks her into a series of horrific events and compels her to make the ultimate sacrifice. A well-told story of ill-fated burgeoning love in the shadow of death meted out by humanity’s worst aspect of reasoning. The turns of horror and tenderness had me appalled and warmed in equal measure by this earnest narrative showing us the best and worst of humanity through the two sides of the gift of special insight. The possibilities and pitfalls of the human mind and heart are at play in this gritty tale. If you like your dreams real, then read this novel; you won’t be disappointed.
