Format: Paperback
This is a creepy ghost (verging on horror) story about a boy who is shut up in a Victorian mental hospital for rich disturbed kids. Unlike the other patients, Alfie isn't mad (as far as he knows), but is suffering from severe insomnia.

He soon discovers that something is seriously wrong - dark supernatural forces are at large and his insomnia puts him at special risk. Seemingly irrelevant events from his past are linked to his condition and may also be clues to source of the present danger.

As the book progresses, so many strange things happen that it becomes hard to suspend disbelief. I had to keep reading to find how the book ended, but I kept thinking that it would be disappointing and leave too many disconnected threads. I was wrong! The ending is very unexpected (at least I didn't see it coming) but really does pull things together in a very neat way.

Nail biter keepint you guessing with some good twists along the way 28 April 2013

This book is well written and keeps you thinking throughout the entire journey. Keeps you wondering about what is really going on. It is different then other Tom Becker books in setting, but still grips you. It's more realistic. It promises lots of dark, gripping content and engages your mind. It's a fast read and I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a good book to make you think. It's edgy.
