A psychiatrist in a mental institution may not be a very good guy. Sophie’s older sister was found dead after escaping from the mental institution where she was being treated for hearing voices or murmurings. She was found in a rather bizarre pose, hanging by a toe. Now Sophie is hearing murmurings and is afraid she might follow a similar fate. With the help of a new guy at school, she sets out to get answers to her sister’s death and puts herself in terrible danger. The first several chapters showed promise but it did not hold my interest although teens intent on creepy might enjoy it. Perhaps it was the setting of the evil mental institution or the odd nature of the Taker that did not work well in this horror and suspense novel.
