Publisher's Summary

Carmen has a secret, and his name is Dr. Micah Worthy.

Affairs aren’t permitted between staff members at St. Michael’s Asylum, but Carmen and her handsome young psychiatrist find a way to sneak in a kiss or two in empty storerooms when no one’s looking. 

It doesn’t take long for her suspicions to rise, however, as she gets to know some of the patients. Why are some kept locked in their rooms, doped to the gills? And where are the two dozen patients whose names appear on the med lists, but whom she’s never met? Moreover, what’s so forbidden about the ancient passages snaking beneath the two-hundred-year old monastery? 

Something’s off in the asylum, and when nothing seems to add up, Carmen and Micah unite to uncover the truth. 

When staff members learn she’s on to them, the threats begin. Can Carmen report her findings before she ends up in the icy Atlantic? 

Set on the rugged Maine coast in the dead of winter, The Asylum is an intriguing story of romance and danger, filled with characters you’ll love and breathless action that’ll keep you up way past your bedtime.

Awesome suspense and sins of avarice....

I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this audiobook from start to finish. I chose to read along with it on KU (Kindle Unlimited) and it was a great experience. This story combines romance, intrigue, and delightful array of genuine, likeable characters (and some truly villainous ones) with an unremittingly suspenseful plot that keeps you hooked until the very end. There is no foul language, no graphic violence, and no explicit sex scenes to offend anyone, but the despicable deeds inspired by pure greed set against the creepy mystique of the asylum are more than enough to keep you enthralled right up to the satisfying conclusion of this story. The narrator did an excellent job of distinguishing the varied cast of characters by giving each a unique sound and cadence although, speaking as a native Texan, some of the southern characters did speak a bit too slowly (but maybe it just seemed that way because the suspense was so well-crafted that I was just anxious to know what would happen next). I highly recommend this book/audiobook to anyone enjoying a suspenseful, engrossing, diversionary read.

Wow! What a fantastic audio book!

I loved this audio book! It was so good! The story line started out with an attention grabbing event and continued to build and build as the story unfolded. Towards the end, I was on the edge of my seat, fearful, but eagerly awaiting what would happen next. This audio book had lots of tension and drama! The characters were likeable and engaging. The story wasn't predicable. The narrator did a great job. This book would make a great screenplay too. I would highly recommend this audio book to others.

A thriller book

I really enjoyed this book it was the first book in the series that I have listened to but it won't be the last. It kept me on my toes as I was never sure what was going to happen and who to trust. This is book four but I still enjoyed it even though I hadn't listened to the previous books.
Carnen is fired from her job after being set up. Worried about paying the rent she jumps at the first job she is offered. Working in the asylum isn't just cleaning up after patients all day long especially when the patient seem to be in trouble and more is going on than there looks. After being warned off investigating she turns to her mums boyfriend and a new love for help. But when he goes missing things get deadly and Carmen wonders if she has made the biggest mistake of her life.
Gwendolyn is one of my favourite narrators and this book proves why, as she does any excellent job with the story.
