Inspector Espinosa series; book 3. Sequel to: December heat. A psychic predicts that Gabriel, a young business executive, will commit murder before his next birthday. As the year progresses, Gabriel slowly unravels under the burden of the prediction, until he is driven to the office of Inspector Espinosa, where he confesses to the potential crime. It's a problem more appropriate for a psychiatrist, but there is something that attracts Espinsoa to this case. As the weather changes and the southwesterly wind - always a sign of dramatic change - starts up, what at first seems like paranoia becomes brutal reality. Two violent murders occur and their only link is the lonely, clever man who sought out Espinosa a few days earlier for help. Contains passages of a sexual nature. TB 14614.
