"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"5 star Amazon review
"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!"5 star Amazon review
"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."5 star Amazon review
A serial killer stalks London
When rebellious detective Jamie Brooke is assigned to a murder at an anatomy museum, she enlists the help of Blake Daniel, a museum researcher with the supernatural ability to read the history of objects.
Together they must find the killer in a race against time, even as they battle their own personal struggles.
A crime thriller trilogy with a supernatural edge.
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.
