This book was so not what I expected but had me gripped totally
Set in an old asylum in London it starts with the murder of a nurse and looks into the secrets and lies that surround her and the building
The main characters are Connie, an archivist at an architectural drawings office and Lew Kirby, the main detective investigating the murder and Raymond, a former patient of the hospital who now lives in the grounds
The main focus of the story is the secrets that surround the building and the people who used to be in it with the investigations that Lew and Connie conduct the conduit that allows the story to work. Without Raymond the story would have been odd and not flowed properly, he knows more about the building and its secrets but he has secrets of his own
I will admit that some things I guessed but my guesses weren’t confirmed until much later on but the ending was a twist that I didn’t see coming!
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy crime thrillers with so much intrigue that it could make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck (or at least it did mine!)
