Dark Minds is about the power of the mind. It begins with the Parish family moving into a new home, in a seemingly quiet English village. As we move on, we learn that all is not as it seems in Redwell. There are dark forces at work. The family begin to struggle with the odd happenings. Only with the help of another powerful force are they able to make sense of their situation. Finally, there is the confrontation of these forces which will leave no-one concerned quite the same again....
