Overview

After shooting her little brother dead, Annie Radford is sent to a psychiatric hospital for assessment. Hearing voices in her head, Annie is forced to undergo experimental new treatments devised by a mysterious old man who lives in the hospital's attic. It soon becomes clear that the hospital's staff, led by the vicious Nurse Winter, are involved in some dark and horrific plans.

As Annie struggles to survive the hospital, she learns more about Nurse Winter's own story. Once a promising young medical student, Nurse Winter also heard voices in her head. What kind of signals are being transmitted from the basement of the hospital? Who is the old man in the attic? Why are living human brains kept in jars? And what is the dark secret that lurks at the heart of the hospital?

This is quite an epic, sprawling story that starts and ends at the asylum but shoots out at various points to explore the individual stories of the characters. Despite that, it was easy to keep track of all the strands, and although I was doubtful that it would be resolved satisfactorily, the author pulled it off thanks to some imaginative twists and ideas. Still thinking about this one a few days later, so I suppose that's a good sign!

The first 90% was brilliant. Then the ending, depending on your personal preference, is either brilliantly OTT or a little too far. Definitely memorable, though, and could inspire a few nightmares...

A rollercoaster of a read. I never knew what to expect next, and there were so many twists, but the characters were good so it held together. Scary moments. Felt a bit breathless after reading.

This was a great book! There are so many levels to the story that it keeps it interesting and keeps you guessing. Would make a GREAT movie!
