Review: THE SAFE by Daniel Barnett
I read this extraordinary and unstoppable novel for a Goodreads Group. Interweaving abnormal psychology and evil paranormal, THE SAFE opens the walls of a bizarrely-run asylum to the reader's view. From an inmate convicted of uxoricide who simply will not speak, to a inmate who rules the roost, to a grounds caretaker happy only with his dogs and alcohol, to a motley assortment of guards and administrators, author Daniel Barnett demonstrates a vast imagination and his perfect grasp of intellectual literary fiction. His characterizations and plotting are outstanding.
