In Book 3 of the Criminally Insane Series, award-winning and bestselling Douglas Clegg brings us back to the terrifying corridors of the Darden State Hospital for Criminal Justice in southern California.
"Bloody Mary" Chilmark is certifiable -- just ask her doctor. The Darden State Hospital is home to the most dangerous psychopathic killers in the country. But Bloody Mary got out, and raised her baby away from that bad environment.
She kept him in a cage...
And what a mother she's turned out to be -- raising her son, "Doc" with her traditional family values, which often involve surgery -- because her son just has a knack for cutting people open.
But Doc's been arrested, processed and held at Darden State -- and is considered one of the most dangerous of the hospital's guests.
Doc got his nickname because he like to perform surgeries...
But when wildfires burn out of control in Southern California, authorities face the overwhelming task of relocating hundreds of Darden's patients to other prison hospitals before the raging inferno descend
In the frenzy, "Bloody Mary" finds her opportunity to free her son.
It's up to Trey Campbell and officer Jane Laymon to hunt for the mother-son duo in the dark underworld maze of the hospital itself.
Author Note: Night Cage was originally published in paperback under the author's pen name, Andrew Harper.
