thing from guards to crazed ax murderers to make good their escape. Asylum has
a beat-the-clock element that adds thrills to what is essentially a game of
memorizing the proper commands in order to overcome the various obstacles.

As Davidson points out, Blakelock, in a garbled note he had written sometime
earlier, expressed the hope that he would one day escape the asylum and regain
his place among the sane. “It would certainly be a benediction of joy to walk on
real earth again,” he wrote, adding, “Who can divine the messenger?” Mrs.
Adams, it would turn out, was not at all what she represented to the public, but for
the time being few people had cause to be suspicious of her, or doubt her
credentials as a ...

had been granted. Since more Haitians had been landing in south Florida and

I sat and wondered how best to escape the asylum now that the inmates were in
control. I was toying with faking an attack of botulism when Caron poked me and
whispered, “I'm a grandchild.” I glanced at my little angel, who had a calculating
expression not unlike those of our dinner companions. “Forget it,” I whispered
back. “It's obvious Miss Justicia has more than enough would-be heirs to bicker
over the family fortune. I make a decent living. You don't have cardboard soles in
