Summary

In the booming metropolis of New Tokyo, a high-ranking business executive is tasked with transporting valuable company data in the form of an information package stored inside his mind. Fearing an attack from one of the Federation’s oldest criminal organizations, the corporation entrusts his safety to the Ayers-Ross Thoughtprotection Agency. 
 
For Sheldon Ayers, a veteran telepath and Mindguard, the mission starts like any other. When his team is attacked in the high-speed transportation network below the city, Sheldon must once again use his legendary skills and experience to protect his client’s mind. But this time, he finds himself facing an enemy who seems to be able to predict his every move. 
 
Fighting to adapt to an unprecedented situation, Sheldon suspects that behind the attack lies an unlikely adversary – someone even he couldn’t have prepared for, someone with ties to Sheldon’s past. 
The Positive Deviant is a standalone prequel to The Mind Malignancy, a series of dark science fiction thrillers.

    Suffering from amnesia, a young pharmaceutical executive discovers she’s the victim of a hypnotist Megan Phillips wakes up on the fourteenth hole. Her clothes are grass-stained, her back is aching, and the last two days are a total blank. She’s not hungover—she doesn’t drink—her mind has simply been erased. Desperate for answers, she turns to her puzzle-addicted neighbor, Gus Bilinski, a frustrated genius who spends his time learning Persian for fun. He refers her to an unorthodox psychiatrist, Dr. Henrietta Snooks, who believes the symptoms are unmistakable: Megan has been hypnotized. But who would want to hypnotize her? How has the hypnotist taken control of her, and what does he want her to do next? And most importantly, just what fun did she miss during her two days of amnesia? The answers, Megan fears, may cause her to lose what’s left of her mind.

    Glasgow private investigator Derek Adams can't seem to get away from the otherworldly, especially not when it seems to be the only paying gig in town. So when an old widow offers him two grand to find her son-who isn't exactly missing...just not himself-it's not long before things start to get weird, and a road trip to the rural village of Skye turns into a detour to the twilight. Before long, Derek is on a remote island, hip-deep in mermaids, stalked by shape-shifters, and tangled in the nets of a diabolical fisher cult intent on waking an ancient god and unleashing the apocalypse. In other words, it's business as usual.

    Death and decapitation seem to go hand in hand in the Devon village of Aller. When the first victim's head is sent floating down the river, the village's rural calm is shattered. Soon the corpses are multiplying, and the entire community is involved in the hunt for the murderer. Whilst many chase false trails, it is left to Gervase Fen, Oxford don and amateur criminologist, to uncover the sordid truth.  
     
    Equal parts compelling, witty and ingenuous, this novel is a classic example of great British detective fiction. 
     
     First published in 1977, Glimpses of the Moon was Edmund Crispin's ninth and final novel.
