Detective Wilks is called in to investigate a series of gruesome, ritualistic killings of patients in the psychiatric ward of a MA hospital. He is frequently hampered by the chief of secuirity and the ward administrator in his efforts.
This is a pretty interesting story with what I found to be a very dynamic detective. But the two characters mentioned above seemed a bit too one-dimensional and pardon the expression - "insane" for my taste. I wanted to have them both sent to jail for blatant obstruction of justice.
Additionally, I would have liked to have seen more development of the patients on the ward and their back stories.
I did forsee some of the twists in the story, but was okay with that as they seemed to fit. And overall, did enjoy the read and did like the detective enough to try another story with him in it.
