PALMER ENTITY is the sequel to the horrifying novel ROOKWOOD ASYLUM.
The late Doctor Miles Rugeley Palmer, who along with all the other staff and all the patients of the former Rookwood Asylum, perished in the fire in 1955, has for all these decades collected to him in spirit those patients and staff, together with additional spirits who have died in the building over the years. This massed entity seemingly is confined to the building's premises, but in the remaining copse of trees is awakening the ancient pagan god which once ruled that forest. American Paul Mahan unwillingly agrees to participate in a ghost hunting documentary in the building, fearful that more tragedy will ensue, which of course does occur.
PALMER ENTITY is riveting and terrifying, due to the implacability of the horrors and targeting of bystanders and the virtually innocent. I quite enjoyed this read, as I did the first in the series, and hope it continues.
