A “master storyteller” (James Ellroy) uncovers a sealed-off
network of secret passages connecting all of Philadelphia—and the killer hidden
For one hundred years, the Delaware Valley State Hospital at
Cold River was known as a warehouse for the criminally insane. Two decades ago,
it closed its doors forever. But Luther Wade never left, and roams the Byberry
catacombs beneath the city, waiting and watching.
On a late winter day, a wealthy businessman is found
brutally murdered in a Philadelphia park. Detectives Kevin Byrne and Jessica
Balzano get the case. They soon discover a mute two-year-old girl wandering the

halfway around the world. As they investigate, they’re drawn closer and closer
to the doors of Luther’s devious maze, and to the dark secrets of Cold River. Download and start listening now!
