Lovereading view...

Gruesome goings on in a Victorian pyschiatric hospital as a serial killer strikes while Sergeant Trevor Joseph recovers from his last case. A follow-up to Without Trace but equally readable as a standalone novel. It's chilling thriller that will keep you gripped, but don't read it if you have an impending hospital stay...

Compton Castle is a Victorian psychiatric hospital long overdue for demolition. Originally designed as a sanctuary for the mentally ill, it now provides a stalking ground for a serial killer. Sergeant Trevor Joseph is a temporary inmate, but the hospital loses all therapeutic benefit when a corpse is dug out of a flowerbed.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
