Welcome, welcome, to the next stop in the A Madness So Discreet Blog Tour. I actually met Mindy a year or so ago during one of Harper's fall tours. Let me tell you guys, she is both brilliant and hilarious, and her books reflect both of these things (maybe more brilliant and not as much hilarious). Anywho, let's talk about the book!
Grace Mae knows madness.
She keeps it locked away, along with her voice, trapped deep inside a brilliant mind that cannot forget horrific family secrets. Those secrets, along with the bulge in her belly, land her in a Boston insane asylum.
When her voice returns in a burst of violence, Grace is banished to the dark cellars, where her mind is discovered by a visiting doctor who dabbles in the new study of criminal psychology. With her keen eyes and sharp memory, Grace will make the perfect assistant at crime scenes. Escaping from Boston to the safety of an ethical Ohio asylum, Grace finds friendship and hope, hints of a life she should have had. But gruesome nights bring Grace and the doctor into the circle of a killer who stalks young women. Grace, continuing to operate under the cloak of madness, must hunt a murderer while she confronts the demons in her own past.
Now, it's time for Mindy's Top 10 Horror Flicks/Books. It is, after all, that time of year, oui?
