By

Rating
A deep and riveting psychological thriller inspired by true events of the Victorian era, The Medea Complex explores the nature of the human psyche: what possesses us, what drives us, and how love, passion, and hope for the future can drive us to insanity. 1885. Anne Stanbury wakes up in a strange bed, having been kidnapped from her home. As the panic settles in, she realizes she has been committed to a lunatic asylum, deemed insane and therefore unfit to stand trial for an unspeakable crime. But all is not as it seems.... Edgar Stanbury, her husband as well as a grieving father, is torn between helping his confined wife recover her sanity and seeking revenge for his ruined life. But Anne's future rests wholly in the hands of Dr. George Savage, chief medical officer of Bethlem Royal Hospital. The Medea Complex is the darkly compelling story of a lunatic, a lie, and a shocking revelation that elucidates the difference between madness and evil....

Reviews

"A harrowing trip through the dark corridors of a Victorian asylum and the unexpected twists of relationships that are as complex as they are compelling. Nuanced and mesmerizing."--Deanna Raybourn, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Dark Enquiry "A riveting debut novel filled with psychological suspense and dark, unexpected twists. In its chilling and compelling narrative, it manages to be both pull-no-punches historical fiction and a story so modern it could have happened yesterday."--Simone St. James, Author of The Other Side of Midnight
