Emily Flesher is not sure that she is ready to return to the hospital she used to love so much, both growing up and as a new nurse; the abandoned hospital is very ominous. She and her team of paranormal researchers are committed to helping the spirits within find peace.
The Weston Hospital for the Insane is awakening more quickly now as the spirits inside seek revenge and a way to move on. Things quickly come to a head when Emily and her team arrive in Weston.
Emily, Claire, Pat, and Nathan finally arrive at the empty and haunted Weston Hospital for the Insane. They are aware that danger awaits them there as well as a mystery, but none are prepared for just what they will face.
After a slightly slow start, this story really takes off. The suspense will have you sitting at the edge of your seat while reading it and I do not recommend this as something to read right before bed. The author combines a great ghost story with an unsolved murder, using apparatus rightly buried in the history of psychiatric treatment. The loose ends of the previous book are neatly tied up here and very satisfactorily at that. Claire, Emily, and Pat's characters are much better developed here, though Nathan remains a bit of a mystery. Mary and Diane become more pivotal to the story, especially Mary, and any sympathy I had for the murdered ex-employees of the hospital is definitely gone. This is a fast moving and intense thriller that I enjoyed very much.
