The asylum

The asylum

Harwood, John, 1946- author

A young woman wakes in a strange bed beneath coarse sheets. The bare walls are a dismal green, and a sickly light filters through a metal grille. Doctor Maynard Straker steps into the room, and speaks. 'Have no fear, Miss Ashton. I am entirely at your service.' But this is not her name. And she should not be here - in the asylum. She is Georgina Ferrars, of Gresham's Yard, London - and she can prove it. But when Dr Straker sends a telegram to her uncle in London, the reply is swift: GEORGINA FERRARS HERE STOP YOUR PATIENT MUST BE IMPOSTER STOP. So begins a tale of suspense and terror, as Georgina fights for her truth
