Mindy McGinnis, the acclaimed author of Not a Drop to Drink and In a Handful of Dust, combines murder, madness, and mystery in a beautifully twisted gothic historical thriller perfect for fans of novels such as Asylum and The Diviners as well as television’s True Detective and American Horror Story.

When Grace Mae is sent to the insane asylum because of the bulge in her belly, she already knows about madness and family secrets. It is in the darkness that she may find a new lease on life when a visiting doctor interested in criminal psychology recognizes Grace’s brilliant mind hiding beneath the fear and anger. Although the doctor insists that for Grace’s safety she must continue to play insane while assisting him at crime scenes, she finds hope in a different, ethical asylum. But the gruesome nights when Grace and the doctor investigate a killer targeting young women bring Grace’s shaky sanity, and the demons of her own past, dangerously close to the surface.

How cool is this cover!? I’d read it for the cover. But also, this seriously sounds awesome – criminal psychology, a killer, insanity!
