In a world gone mad, only the insane can rule.

Still reeling from the death of her beloved daughter, Detective Jamie Brooke needs time to grieve and to heal. What she gets is a call to murder and madness: a prominent psychiatrist has been tortured to death, and it’s up to her to uncover the people responsible, and stop them before they can kill again.

Turning to her friend, Blake Daniel — an antiquities expert cursed with the psychic ability to “see” the bloody histories of objects — Jamie begins an investigation that will take her to the most infamous asylum in history, and a place where insanity is born. A place where rules don’t apply, and where madness is the only law.

She has no idea what she’s getting into. Because Jamie doesn’t know the true history of Bedlam Asylum, the depraved experiments that went on there, or how it leads to the string of murders that could bring the country to its knees.

Worst of all, she doesn’t know about Blake’s connection to Bedlam, to the murders, and to the people willing to execute anyone who stands in their way. And Blake himself doesn’t know the full evil of his own past, or that his gift has put him in the sights of a group who want to use him as a guinea pig for their darkest experiments.

The answers are coming. But some answers bring only pain. Some answers bring only death.

And the worst answers of all bring only DELIRIUM.

The second installment in the thrilling Brooke and Daniel series, Delirium (by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author J.F. Penn) presents a chilling world where insanity is the only law, and madness the only way to survive.

"Wow, wow and more wow. Delirium blew me away and I have to admit I wasn't expecting it to. J.F Penn set the bar so high with Desecration that I didn't see how she could reach it again. I stand corrected. In fact I sit chewing-my-nails awake-till-the-small-hours-reading corrected.
This is another wrenching read that offers so much on every level."

5 star Amazon review

"The subject matter of this novel immediately jolts interest - the history of mental illness treatment ... a topic I too have strong feelings about, and so this story truly hit my heartstrings. The research was done well, as to be expected by this author who always delivers well developed background. To date this is my favorite of J.F.Penn's books"

"If you like dark and disturbing with a side of supernatural and are ready to delve into the dreadful history of mental illness than this book is for you. Warning, just like book one, if you can't take the horror, don't open the book. But if you can, it is well worth the read!"

"Amazingly constructed and beautifully dark. I couldn't fault this book, I had to read it in one sitting, I couldn't stop! The growth and evolution of the characters and overall setting is absolutely superb."

Dark history of mental illness

I enjoyed the history of mental illness and how it was viewed and treated through time and how it is perceived today. An excellent theme, not just the main storyline, of how people treat the Other.

I do think the vigilante (or murderer, if you prefer) could have gone after bigger fish, like the main psycho experimenting on the mentally different.

I can’t wait to see what Jamie does next. A dark thriller with interesting themes and questions about morality.
