    Pepper is a rambunctious big man, and, suddenly, the surprised inmate of a budget-strapped mental institution in Queens, New York. He's not mentally ill, but that doesn't seem to matter. On his first night, he's visited by a terrifying creature who nearly kills him before being hustled away by the hospital staff. It's no delusion: The other patients confirm that a hungry devil roams the hallways when the sun goes down. Pepper rallies three other inmates in a plot to fight back: Dorry, an octogenarian schizophrenic; Coffee, an African immigrant with severe OCD; and Loochie, a bipolar teenage girl.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I found this book incredibly boring. It just plods along. Also, more evidence that authors should not read their own work, though a good reader would not have salvaged it.


    Has The Devil in Silver turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No
