"Those who the Gods wish to destroy, they first make mad."
London. When a prominent psychiatrist is found murdered in the old hospital of Bedlam, Detective Sergeant Jamie Brooke finds herself investigating the history of madness to fathom the motive. Blake Daniel, a reluctant psychic, helps her to research the case, only to discover that his own family are entwined with the shadowy forces that seek to control the minds of the mad. As the body count rises, and those she loves are threatened, Jamie discovers that the tendrils of conspiracy wind themselves into the very heart of the British government. Can she stop the killer before madness takes its ultimate revenge? A thriller with an edge of the supernatural, Delirium is a story of love for family, revenge for injustice and the question of whether we all sit on the spectrum of madness somewhere.

Insane or normal?

If you could sum up Delirium in three words, what would they be?

Addictive, mesmerizing, brilliant

The complex interweaving of the story lines kept me thirsting for more. From stories of individuals and their families to government conspiracy this book covers a range of topics and emotions.

What about Rosalind Ashford’s performance did you like?

The haunting quality in her voice as she read the dialogue brought the book to life

Delirium - Where madness touches the sane

Where does Delirium rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of my top audiobooks in the thriller genre. I was on the edge of my seat from the moment of Dr Christian Monro is murdered. It was a wonderfully weaved story that brought mental health issues to the fore and built on the story of Detective Sergent Jamie Brooke from Desecration.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Blake Daniels is still my favourite character because he is a reluctant psychic and the death of his father was touching despite the painful history there. The mystery of his father and the distant yet deeply loving relationship he has with is mother were beautiful to me. I was so worried about him when he was kidnapped and well, I can't reveal what happens to him. All I am glad about is that Detective Sergent Jamie Brooke overcame of vulnerabilities and listened to her own intuition and went to him in his time of greatest need.

What does Rosalind Ashford bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I think that Rosalind Ashford brings a sense of authenticity to the London Psychic series and the characters become realistic in my mind from the way that she narrates and acts the story for the listener. Her use of tone and pace help bring this story to life in a way that I wouldn't necessarily experience if I were to read the book myself.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. I listened to this book over a five day period. I enjoyed taking my time listening to the chapters that I could while I was in the car or on the train going to and from work. This book took me out of my daily life experiences and put me in a world of mystery, thrills and psychic chills.

Any additional comments?

J.F. Penn is a fantastic thriller author and definitely improving her writing craft with each and every book in the series.
