Francis Petrel was discharged from the psychiatric Western State Hospital 20 years ago. The hospital was closed after the murder of a nurse and some other crimes. A reunion with another patient at the doors of the hospital, make him remember what’ve happened there. We’ll read the whole story according to Francis.
I liked that the place, where all the story happened, was a psychiatric hospital. That way you can suspect of everyone. I was, always, thinking the motives that each one of them could’ve had and that some of them could’ve commited murder just because they were crazy.
The fact that the story is telled by a psychiatric patient allows us to enter to his mind and his craziest thoughts.
I reccomend this book and I consider it very original.
