Like all children living at Rose Hill Asylum, Kyle Hampton wanted freedom from the abusive staff and violent residents. When at nine he was adopted into a loving family, he left his younger brother behind and didn’t look back. Twenty-eight years later, his choices have returned to haunt him.
Now a family man, Kyle has hidden his true childhood from his wife, only to stir up the past when, as a lark, he revisits the underground tunnels and the abandoned asylum with a friend. A dark figure wants revenge and emerges ready to destroy Kyle and everyone he loves. But Kyle isn’t going down without a fight—he’s played in the shadows before.
Will his childhood, rooted in terror, be what saves him?
Praise for Asylum
This book properly belongs in the horror section. Humans are the biggest monsters of all, and Asylum is full of them. There is an intensity to this story … Rose Hill isn’t real, but it is based on reality….while this isn’t quite a book about social justice, she make me think about these issues. KarnagesMistress
This was a quick and enjoyable read that I finished within 48 hours. When I wasn’t reading this book, I was thinking about reading it and wanting to know what happens! Kelly Okonski
This is very different from other mental psych ward thrillers I have read. The inmates are not running the asylum but they are the only ones who can save themselves from its terrifying grip. David Kempf author of They Laughed At Me.
