This book was creepy and quite hard to follow at times with the jumps back and forth in time and the characters and their relationships to each other both past and present. I found it confusing but the excellent writing kept me glued to the pages trying to see what would happen next. To tell you the truth, I am still not quite sure I understand completely who did what and all that went on from the asylum to the current murders. The last couple of chapters helped tie it up a bit, but the end of the investigation still didn't completely explain everything to my satisfaction -- or maybe I need to reread with the ending still fresh in my mind.
I found the description of Cold River and the practice of psychiatric "care" there quite unnerving and mostly unbelievable, even for fiction.Read more ›
Then there was a resident of that hospital by the name of Luther Wade. He escaped into the underground, living for decades in the tunnels beneath the city. Born while his mother was being held at the Cold River institution, he soon found ways to blend in. He knew how to stay in the shadows and travel the routes that would almost guarantee his invisibility. It might have stayed that way if doctors at the asylum hadn’t tried the experiments. Of course, these weren’t sanctioned experiments, and many patients died when they went wrong. It mattered little, for there was rarely anyone around to care. Now, though, with the danger of discovery looming all these years later, something triggers in Luther. And people begin to die.
Jessica Balzano is trying to juggle her role as wife, mother, law student and Philadelphia police detective. Her partner, Kevin Byrne, tries to help her as much as possible, but it will take more than the two of them to solve the murders that have begun to plague their city. Balzano is assigned to the open/unsolved squad, a position that normally carries the lightest work load. But when she arrives at work one morning, she can tell from her sergeant’s face that is about to change.
About a month ago, the body of a man named Robert Freitag was found in Priory Park, an obvious victim of homicide. The detective who caught the case himself died a few days into the investigation. His notes were sparse, to say the least. The tumor in his brain had seen to that.Read more ›
Destroyed by fire years ago, the infamous Philadelphia State Hospital was a warehouse for the criminally insane.
But one man never left.
A bizarre killer is at work in darkest Philadelphia and Detectives Kevin Byrne and Jessica Balzano must stop him. But first they must find him ....
Now I have been in from the start of the Balzano and Byrne stories so I was looking forward to this one and was very excited to get a copy. As usual I was in no way disappointed. Richard Montanari has a very distinct voice in the writing world and has become over the years a master of the craft - this particular instalment has become one of my favourites (my absolute still being "The Skin Gods" - Book 2 of the series) due to the complex and very intense storyline.
Jessica is investigating a cold case which very quickly becomes a hot potato - with Kevin on board they find themselves chasing a very dangerous man...and will have to unravel a mystery with its roots in the past.
I loved the flow of this one - snapshots of age old events give clues to what is happening in the present and the plot twists and turns in typical Montanari style until you are not sure if you are coming or going...and the ultimate resolution was one of the best so far.
Ok, I can see why some readers who are also mental health professionals have been a bit down on this one - some of the visuals if you like on asylums and what goes on in them (at least in this fictional world) are often disturbing. However the key word here is "fictional". This is a story, dramatic license is allowed and indeed required to make a compelling tale - it is in no way implied that any of this is fact.Read more ›
