The Mindwarpers (1965)

Why are the nation's best and brightest quitting their jobs in the government's top-secret weapons research laboratory? Metallurgist Richard Bransome doesn't think much about it until suddenly he realizes--out of the blue--that he murdered a woman 20 years earlier and must now leave himself before he is arrested. As the title no doubt suggests, The Mindwarpers concerns Bransome's quest to determine whether or not this memory of murder is real or a phantom of some sort. Reads more like a detective novel until the very last chapter, in which odd technologies make a sudden dramatic appearance. Essential reading for anyone hearing voices.
