"I've enjoyed reading this series each story is more interesting as the next I learn a lot as well from the series! -ReaderThis book keep me on the edge of my seat. Years ago, I worked in a mental health hospital. It had been built back in the late 1800 hundreds. And it was haunted! Part of the original name was State Hospital. But it no longer treats patients. The building has long since be closed. I guess that's why Sanford Hospital was so good. Read the book folks, you won't be disappointed." -Reader

From the Inside Flap

Chapter 1: Waiting for Death
Ray Antonio laid in bed listening to the world around him. He could do little else. In 1945, near the end of the war, a German shell had taken his legs off at the thigh. At ninety years old, Ray didn't have the strength to use his prosthetics, or even hold himself up in a wheelchair.
Ray was waiting for Death to finish what it had started 70 years earlier.
His room smelled of antiseptic, the mustiness of old age, and despair.
Sully O'Hare had passed away the day before, and they had cleaned out the man's belongings. Nothing more than a few pictures. A couple of mementos from Sully's life before ending up in Sanford Veteran's Hospital.
I'll have another roommate soon, Ray thought. If I even make it that long. Let's see how well I handle Stage 4 breast cancer.
Breast cancer.
Ray sighed and stared up at the drop-tile ceiling. He had long ago memorized the pattern of dots in the panels. The television didn't interest him. Too many scantily clad women. Too much violence. The America he saw from his bed wasn't the America he had fought for.
That America was dead and buried, along with his wife and three children.
He drifted in and out of sleep for a while, finally opening his eyes when the sky beyond his window was dark. The parking lot was sparsely populated with the cars of the late night shift, the sickly yellow lights of street lamps illuminating the exterior of his small world. The Hospital had grown quiet, the ambient sounds of machinery filling the crisp air.
Ray looked from the window to the closed door of his room and stiffened.
A young woman stood silently by his bureau. She wore a nurse's uniform from when he had been a boy. The starched white clothes, the cap with its bright red cross, highlighted and helped to define the woman's sharp features. Her lips were full, her eyes wide set and almond-shaped. Small curls of light brown hair slipped out from under her cap, and Ray knew she had a hard time keeping it in check. She had her hands in front of her, delicately small and clasped politely.
When she saw him looking at her, the young woman smiled.
It was then Ray realized he could see straight through her to the back of the door where his blue bathrobe hung.
Ray pushed himself upright and looked with surprise at the young woman.
She took a silent step further into the room.
"Who are you?" Ray asked, his voice harsh from lack of use.
"A friend," she replied. "Just a friend, Raymond Antonio."
The use of his name sent a chill racing through him, and Ray noticed how cold the air in the room was.
"A friend?" Ray said. "Well, what's your name, miss?"
"Ruth," she replied, walking closer to the foot of his bed. "Ray, I've come to help you."
"I don't need any help," Ray snapped. "I thank you for the offer, though."
"Oh, but you do," Ruth said, nodding her head "You do. You just don't realize it. You're too close to it. So was your friend, Sullivan. He didn't want to leave either, but you have to trust that we have your best interests at heart."
"What are you talking about?" Ray asked, fear creeping into him. "What happened to Sully?"
"I want you to know, Ray, how I want to help you," she said. "I helped Sullivan, even though he didn't want it. He couldn't see how he needed my help."
"Sully's dead!" Ray said angrily. "Did you kill him?"
"No," Ruth replied. "Well, I helped to set his spirit free. His soul is at peace, now."
"What did you do?" Ray demanded. "Tell me!"
"I merely eased his passing," Ruth whispered said. "And do not worry, Raymond. I will help ease yours as well."
"The hell you will!" Ray barked. "I'm not dying today, and you won't be the one to decide."
"But you will," Ruth said. "And, more importantly, I will. I know my task, and whether you think it's your time or not, Ray, I have decided it is."
As she finished her short speech, Ruth headed towards the side of his bed. Ray grabbed the red call button for the nurse and tried to twist away from her. He moved too quickly and fell onto the floor. Ribs cracked loudly, and his head bounced off the old tile. Ray continued to press the button, twisting around to see where Ruth was.
She passed through his bed, anger flashing across her face.
"This wouldn't have happened," she said, her voice cold and flat, "if you had laid still."
The dead nurse leaned over him, reached down and thrust her hand into his chest.
Ray howled with fear and pain as she grasped his old heart and squeezed.
