It is the last night before Tanglewood Memorial closes for good, and MRI technician Mike Hughes arrives for his final shift at the hospital. Between the bare-bones staff and the fact that all the patients have already been moved to the new facility, Mike is prepared for a quiet night.

All that changes when a special patient arrives, complete with a five-man police escort: the infamous serial killer Frank Snow has been brought in for a brain MRI. As if that’s not enough, Mike’s wife Sarah decides to drop in unexpectedly, along with their young son, Eli. Then Snow unexpectedly breaks free, cuts the power, and locks the doors. Now he’s loose in the old, dark hospital, hunting its last occupants one by one, and escape seems to be the furthest thing from his mind.

    " Pretty lame book about a serial killer loose in the hospital. It's alright, but there are far better books out there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martha | 1/18/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon Price | 12/27/2013

    " This book is very good. Don't want to give any about the book, except its good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thom (T.E.) | 11/12/2013

    " I make no apologies for how much I like this short horror novel, which mashes up a taught family-in-peril thriller with a soupcon of medical thriller and a goodly dollop of prime-period Stephen King. There's good momentum (and a grand ending) to this blazing-quick read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mom24dogs | 10/3/2013

    " Excellent. Worth reading again. "

    " I was expecting it to be scarier but I did want to keep reading to find out what was going on. I might pick up another book by this author. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Melissa | 8/17/2013

    " This is what happens when you accidently put the wrong book on hold at the library, but are sure it was the right book so you keep reading, thinking "but the reviews were SO good!". Um, next time double check! "

    " I loved this book. It was short only 192 pages, but I couldn't put it down. It made you want to keep reading to find out what happened to the characters in the book. It was incredible suspenseful, I would recommended this book to anyone who likes a good suspense horror novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lesley | 7/19/2012

    " It is not often I read a book that really creeps me out. This is probably one of the scariest books I've read in a long time. His writing is awesome and the story is great - one of those books I couldn't put down and then was bummed when it ended. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsten | 4/20/2012

    " I read Joe Schreiber's first book and found it quite suspenseful. He has a wonderful ability of mixing the idea of human and inhuman evil. This book for some reason seemed a little slow at first, but it had a wonderfully sinister end. All in all, a nice read. But not nearly as good as his first. "
