In Nick Smith’s new thriller The Windmill Factory, Paul Humber uses his psychic powers to help the police but finds his life and sanity threatened by a killer who makes his worst nightmares a reality. Paul can rewind the memories of dead people but he’d rather have a drink.
When his cop friend Mike asks for help investigating a series of murders, Paul hits the bottle and follows the trail of a neurosurgeon who tampers with his patients’ dreams. Paul’s life gets more complicated when he falls for Mike’s girlfriend, who might be psychic herself.
