Kcoles | 3 comments Read book around 1985ish. All I remember is the protagonist having a searing head pain and seeing hammer blow coming towards her head, realises she is seeing a murder taking place. The murderer seems aware of her through psychic energy. He is called Raoul, I think he starts out riding a horse ,setting fire to a village, (Armenian Kurd?) he moves to the area she lives and I think I remember the reference to stucco front houses and Raoul being involved in working as a mechanic or something to do with boats! She follows her visions and follows him to where he lives. Desperate to find and read again.

Kcoles, I've moved your thread down to Unsolved since that is where it belongs.

What age is this aimed at--I'm thinking either YA or more probably A, but thought I'd ask before making that assumption.

Any memories of the cover?

How did you find this book--the cover caught your eye, the blurb on the back, you saw a review, it was on the Our Staff Recommends shelf, a friend personally recommended it to you, it was required reading for school?

Kcoles | 3 comments It was aimed at an adult audience and had hammer murders and sexual and violent reference to male genitalia. After he(Raoul) kills a man, which I seem to remember was with his lover on a boat ,he cuts off his man's bit and sticks it into the dead man's mouth. I purchased it from Woolworth as a mass market novel in around 1984/85 and only have a recollection of a light of some kind, like a flickering candle on the cover. I think the author may have been female.I have always had an interest in stories about esp and quite sure the title was something like" in my visions"or" I see you ".

Kcoles | 3 comments "SO ECSTATIC" finally after years and years of searching for this book I went to bed and started to try to remember all I could from the time I found it in the book sale bin in Woolies ,the year I would have read it and desperately searched for alternative words to sum up the title . That night the title just popped back in "Fatal glimpse by Robert K Wilcox" I managed to purchase a copy from ebay and can't wait for my hols , so I can enjoy reading it over again. (won't be selling this one off in my next boot sale!) Thanks to all who offered help to find.
