From the cover: “Chris Robinson is an ordinary man, who since 1989 has possessed an extraordinary power to predict the occurrence of criminal and terrorist acts through messages communicated within his dreams. To the suspicion, incredulity and eventual muted acceptance of the police and security organisations, he has been able to forecast accurately a series of IRA mainland bombing campaigns, including the 1990 Lichfield station shootings and the 1991 mortar attack on Downing Street. Through the process of ‘automatic writing’ Chris has kept a night-by-night diary of his dream experiences, and it is this confusing, scrambled mix of words, phrases and symbols that holds the secret to his psychic ability. Andy Boot has worked closely with Chris Robinson in reconstructing the vivid dream sequences (in which Chris was both observer and participant), and tracing his ongoing battle to make sense of the information he was receiving. Despite possessing influential contacts in both the police and the media, all too often Chris’s powers of precognition unsettled those in the position of using his dreams to prevent or investigate incidents; and he would be left to question the purpose of being a largely passive part of a phenomenon that had overtaken his own life and seemed to give him little in return. How could it be a series of God-given warnings when the dreams were too complex to be able to change the course of events? Could his subconscious mind really see into the future? How close to madness was he?”
