In a world gone mad, who can you trust? 

Fresh from a high-profile case in the Paris fashion world, elite forensic psychiatrist and criminal profiler Dr Alexander Gregory receives a call from the New York State Homicide Squad. The girlfriend of a notorious criminal has been admitted to a private psychiatric hospital and can no longer testify in his upcoming trial. Without her, their case will collapse but, amid reports that the staff are as unpredictable as their patients, who can the police trust?

In desperation, they turn to an outsider and now Gregory must find the courage to step inside the fortified walls of Buchanan Hospital to uncover the truth. The question is, will he ever be the same again?

Murder and mystery are peppered with dark humour in this fast-paced thriller set amidst the spectacular Catskill Forest.


This is the 3rd book in this series but I haven't read the other 2 which are free on Amazon with Kindle Unlimited.  I didn't feel lost at all and really felt that this book read like a stand alone book.  Working with the FBI Alexander Gregory agrees to go into the upscale mental hospital posing as a patient, using his past to help protect the wife of a mafia boss and the only living person who could help them take him down.  

Only a handful of people know who Dr. Gregory really is and what he is doing there but when he isn't able to contact them he finds himself attempting to get help from the doctor treating him.  Of course this doesn't go well.  

I found myself sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen.  I loved the narrator who did a great job with the different accents and really made the characters come alive.
