Beneath the hospital for the criminally insane, there's an older asylum...full of night cages... In Book 3 of the Criminally Insane Series, New York Times bestselling author Douglas Clegg blends psychological action-suspense with a twist of psychic horror as he unlocks the dangerous corridors of the Darden State Hospital for Criminal Justice in southern California for the most terrifying mother-son murder team in history. 

"Bloody Mary" Chilmark is certifiable -- just ask her doctor. The Darden State Hospital is home to the most dangerous psychopathic killers in the country. But Bloody Mary got out, and raised her baby away from that bad environment. 

She kept him in a cage...where he began to see dead people, all the time. 

Especially the ghosts of those he's killed... 

What a mother she turned out to be -- raising her son, "Doc" with her traditional family values, which often involved surgery -- because her son just has a knack for cutting people open. But Doc's been arrested, processed and held at Darden State -- and is considered one of the most dangerous of the hospital's inmates. 

When wildfires burn out of control in Southern California, authorities face the overwhelming task of relocating hundreds of Darden's patients to other prison hospitals before the raging inferno descend 

In the frenzy, "Bloody Mary" finds her opportunity to free her son. 

It's up to Trey Campbell and officer Jane Laymon to hunt for the mother-son duo in the dark underworld maze of the old asylum beneath the hospital.

From New York Times bestselling author Douglas Clegg comes a novel of heart-pounding suspense and supernatural horror. What secrets lie within the ancient place known as the Goat Dance? 

In winter, in the mountains, a darkness envelopes a town...a house on the edge of a lake holds the key to its horrifying secret.

A Haunted Lake...

Seven-year-old Teddy Amory should have died that winter's day on Clear Lake, when she fell through the ice while skating with her older brother, Jake. But something got inside her that day . . . something terrifying...

A Town in Shadows... 

Nightmarish forces lurk in the mountains of Virginia, and darkness has begun to spread like a shroud over the living. 

Those long-dead return in nightmares. Does someone – or something -- control these horrifying visions from within the mysterious halls of the Marlowe-Houston House on the edge of Clear Lake?

Now a young man named Coffey returns to Pontefract, Virginia, to find the woman he lost – and a town must face its terrifying past as a possessed child threatens to unleash an unspeakable horror.

A terrifying chiller of a horror novel from a master of the fiction of nightmares.
