9780099578840: The Asylum

A young woman wakes in a strange bed.

A sickly light filters through a metal grille.

Doctor Maynard Straker steps into the room, and speaks.

‘Have no fear, Miss Ashton. I am entirely at your service.’

This, however, is not her name.

And she should not be here – in the Asylum.

She is Miss Georgina Ferrars, and she can prove it.

But when Dr Straker sends a telegram to her uncle in London, the reply is swift:

GEORGINA FERRARS HERE STOP

YOUR PATIENT MUST BE IMPOSTER STOP

Madness? Mistaken identity? Or are there more malevolent forces at work?

Product Description:

A young woman wakes in a strange bed beneath coarse sheets.

A sickly light filters through a metal grille.

Doctor Maynard Straker steps into the room, and speaks.

'Have no fear, Miss Ashton. I am entirely at your service.'

But this is not her name. And she should not be here - in the Asylum.

She is Miss Georgina Ferrars, and she can prove it.

But when Dr Straker sends a telegram to her uncle in London, the reply is swift:

GEORGINA FERRARS HERE STOP

YOUR PATIENT MUST BE IMPOSTER STOP

Madness? Mistaken identity? Or are there more malevolent forces at work?

Review:

"A twisting tale of greed, deceit and betrayal" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Readers are guaranteed a thoroughly diverting time in Harwood’s not-to-be-trusted hands… A dizzying dance…we love every minute of it" (Barry Forshaw Independent)

"Harwood has a talent amounting to genius for channeling the spirit of 19th-century sensation fiction" (Andrew Taylor Spectator)

"Deliciously spooky" ( New York Times Book Review)

"Harwood, master of creeping Victorian horror, does it again in his latest tale of pervasive evil and madness" ( Booklist)
