Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0316244708, Hardcover)A "master storyteller" (James Ellroy) uncovers a sealed-off network of secret passages connecting all of Philadelphia--and the killer hidden within.
For one hundred years, the Delaware Valley State Hospital at Cold River was known as a warehouse for the criminally insane. Two decades ago, it closed its doors forever. But Luther Wade never left, and roams the Byberry catacombs beneath the city, waiting and watching.
On a late winter day, a wealthy businessman is found brutally murdered in a Philadelphia park. Detectives Kevin Byrne and Jessica Balzano get the case. They soon discover a mute two-year-old girl wandering the streets with a key piece of evidence linked to a series of murders committed halfway around the world. As they investigate, they're drawn closer and closer to the doors of Luther's devious maze, and to the dark secrets of Cold River.
