Overview

A crafty forensic mystery-thriller set in a Southern psychiatric institution that sets the stage for a series of bizarre unsolved murders.

A behind the scene fictional account into the world of inpatient mental health services and forensic psychiatry offers real insight into the legal entanglements that are more often created: a system that can be manipulated and crafted for the pursuit of revenge and retribution. The criminal justice system that purports to offer a quality of care frequently creates a new sentencing guideline that sees the more reasonable and humane Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity (NGRI) transform into "Life Without Hope of Freedom."

Many of you, MANY OF YOU, have posted a review on the wrong book here. Please pay better attention. This is an EXCELLENT read and it's not a read about love and heartsick lovers and romance. It's a forensic read...and, an excellent one at that. Nothing 'slow' about it. Thank you, Jim, for sharing this story with us.
