Patient Twenty-Nine, or Jane, is within reach of her heart’s desire: a home outside of Soothing Hills Asylum, where she has been raised.
 
Her sister Jules wants to take her in, and a man, Mason, is deeply in love with her and wants to care for her. But before Jane can leave, she must be examined by the Board of Lunacy. Jane is still hearing voices and songs from the cornfield outside the asylum, voices and songs that tell her what she must do, and that no one else can hear. So the Board may not allow her to leave.
 
But the asylum is becoming more and more dangerous. Its lead alienist, Dr. Frost, has disappeared, there have been frightening sightings of a woman in white, running through the corn at night, and perhaps worst of all: lobotomized women from the asylum are turning up pregnant.
 
Jane is desperate to get away and go to her new home. Mason and Jules only want to rescue Jane from the asylum.
 
But there is a complication: for Jane, the voice in the corn calls. And she must obey.

The Requiem Red
(Synesthesia Shift #1)

Life for Patient 29 is full of medicated day dreams of a life outside the walls of Soothing Hills Asylum. But fantasies are not all that consume her. A monster roams the halls of the sanitarium she reluctantly calls home and three girls have been found dead. The dead girls share one common thread . . . each was 29’s cell mate. As the investigation gets under way, she retreats into her mind, listening to the voices that call to her. She is endowed with the cursed gift of perception. Through it, she hears messages carried upon the notes of music, discerns words hidden among the strokes of paintings, and minds pleadings for help from the corn field outside.

Could the key to the murders lie within 29’s broken mind? Mason, an orderly, does not see 29 as a lunatic and as his belief in her grows so does her self-confidence. The possibility of one day leaving the asylum seems less and less like a fantasy. But the monster has other plans for her. Leaving will not be so easy, at least not while she is alive.

excerpt

“This man is an employee of Soothing Hills Asylum. I insist on seeing him.” Grayjoy’s voice wafts down the hallway and I stand, gripping the bars of the cell.


“And I says, Dr. Grayjoy, that he is our prisoner and is awaiting trial.”


“Talk to my barrister. Langley—please instruct the chief inspector as to your client’s rights.”


Grayjoy swiftly moves past the other inmates, arriving in a moment.


“Thank Providence, Jonathon. Trumped up charges, the lot of them.”


“Yes, I know. This will be difficult—I cannot say if Gentile will speak on your behalf.”


Heat suffuses my face. “What? It’s no matter. Listen to me. The asylum board—they have Jane slated for ablation next week.”


Jonathon’s face alters to the color of spoiled milk. “They are trying to pin the killing of the latest victim from Ward Thirteen on Jane. But I saw the document. She was scheduled for the ablation weeks prior to the girl’s disappearance. They are trying to cover up something—and Jane is their bloody scapegoat.”


I grip the bar tighter, chest heaving. I fight the blackness that threatens.


Jonathon’s hand ruffles his hair, over and over, till it resembles a black headdress.
