Book Review: Echoes of Insanity

Title: Echoes of Insanity

Author: R.A. Goli

Quote: "From the outside, the fence looked normal height, to give the illusion that it wasn't a prison."

Emily enters the oldfashioned asylum willingly, telling us she's a reporter going undercover to report on conditions. The conditions seem to need reporting on; nobody seems to be doing much to help patients. But why does she keep hearing a baby crying? Is it one of the sicker patients, crying like a baby? Is the asylum haunted? Or is Emily haunted?

Definitely not a feel-good story, this longish short story, published as a stand-alone mini-book, might be described as a female counterpart to Poe's "Tell-Tale Heart."
