Early last week, I had the pleasure of reading White Walls, the debut novel by H.M.C. White Walls tells the story of a psychiatrist who returns to a small town to rebuild her life after her marriage ends unhappily. Jade soon finds work at the local psychiatric facility and discovers that her patients are linked in more ways than one ... And more importantly, could the accusations of corruption by her delusional patients be real?
I thought that White Walls was a brilliant, insightful thriller. The author shows some real insight into the mechanics of mental illness and every character from Jade to Sam, a young woman with a severe personality disorder, is well plotted and well thought out. There were a number of surprising plot twists that kept me reading well into the night. It's difficult to say much more about this one without giving too much of the plot away, but it does make you question who you can trust, why and whose version of reality one should listen to.
