Overview

In Dreamcast a young art-student in college, Travis, has a nightmare about the murder of an ex-girlfriend. The next day, to his horror, he discovers that the dream was all too true. When, during the police interview, he naively confesses the dream, he is arrested for having exact knowledge of the crime. In jail, he is harangued by two hard-nosed detectives who try to extract a confession.
With the help of a psychologist assigned to assess his mental competence, Travis discovers that he has psychic abilities that have been masked by an artistic overlay. Travis has a hard time accepting his psychic potential, and is slow to use them in his own defense. As a complication, he becomes attracted to the psychologist who is ten years older than him. He feels she is his one real support in midst of the system trying to fast track him into prison.
Gradually he learns, but it takes all of his psychic intuition and initiative to fight for himself while trapped in jail. By trial and error, however, Travis is able to hunt down the real killer and manipulate the police to apprehend him in a climactic conclusion. The trauma forges Travis and the detectives into life-long friends. Travis has great deal of difficulty balancing his life between the real and the intuited paranormal and seeks continued help from the psychologist.
In the second part of the book, Travis is asked by the police to use his psychic talents to find a girl who was abducted by a murderer. Travis, who tries to live a normal life, now paired with the psychologist, attempts to sidestep the request, but his conscience gets the better of him. Working side-by-side with his former adversaries, Travis cooperates with the detectives, but they are blocked at every turn. There is no trace of the killer or the girl.
After following up every lead and exhausting every possibility, they still can make no headway.
In the end, Travis strikes out on his own, taking the risk of a face-to-face confrontation with the killer. Sure enough, he is ambushed and taken prisoner by the psychopath, who uses innocent victims to revenge and expunge his own childhood abuse. Again, using his abilities, Travis is able to rescue himself and the girl, but once more not without costs.

BIO: Nearing retirement, I now have more time to devote to writing (and if I don’t, I squeeze the day until there is a space/time to crawl into). Over the past 15 years, I have worked on 15 books, three of which (of the Dreamcast series) are self-published. My website, http://www.PaulTelegdi.ca gives a full account of my life and accomplishments, which I shall not repeat here. The thumbnail version: I was born in Hungary; when young immigrated to Canada with my family, attended University of Waterloo, Ontario, where I met my wife. Spent years in West Germany where my wife was studying music while I was learning German. Returning to Canada, we ended up on a farm in Ontario with pets. Long-time married, I boast of three sons with talent and personality. Presently I am office manager of my wife’s private practice of psychology. I like kayaking and windsurfing. I belong to a number of writers’ groups, and often choose writing over sleeping. eBooks are an exciting new chapter in my life and I’m looking forward to the wider exposure. My motto: Want a better life? Then write it!

I got this book about 3 wks. ago and 3 days ago I started to read it, and I could not put it down! The author grabbed me by the neck and wouldn't let go!! It was so rxciting reading about Travis Howard, I found his esp, experiences interesting and riviting(sorry about typos), erhe made it all seem so believable to me. Especially Smythr and his partner McGruder were so good, especially later when they both believed Travis, and after he was out for t, a couple of monthsc later he got called in on a case by McGrufer, he was brought back in to help the police on another case, I'm a little dissappointed in the authot, because I wanted more!! If I see anymore books by this aurhor, I will get them, because they will be fantasticc!! He is a great new novelist and I sure we will see him up there with likes of Koontz !!and King!! !

This is not my usual genera, but gave it a try. I thought that the writing was well done. I just did not really get behind the flying around and the main characters relationship.
