Review - the Institution by Helen Fields

The Institution by Helen Fields
Avon Books UK
Release date: 2 March 2023
Back cover blurb: They’re locked up for your safety. Now, you’re locked in with them. Dr Connie Woolwine has five days to catch a killer. On a locked ward in the world’s highest-security prison hospital, a scream shatters the night. The next morning, a nurse’s body is found and her daughter has been taken. A ransom must be paid, and the clock is ticking. Forensic profiler Dr Connie Woolwine is renowned for her ability to get inside the mind of a murderer. Now, she must go deep undercover among the most deranged and dangerous men on earth and use her unique skills to find the girl – before it’s too late. But as the walls close in around her, can Connie get the killer before The Institution gets her?

The Charles Horatio Parry Institution for the Rehabilitation of the Criminally Insane is the Institution of our story...
In an isolated location, the Institution is a maximum security hospital housing some of the most notorious mentally ill patients ever to have stood trial. It staff highly vetted, and the strictest procedures in place - it isn't a place that welcome strangers. 

When a nurse is found murdered, her body mutilated and another life at danger, the hospital has no choice but to let outsiders in. 

Dr Connie Woolvine is a forensic profiler, renowned for her ability to get inside the mind of a murderer. 

At the institution she has her work cut out, because 'Heaven' ward is full of the most deranged, sadistic and dangerous murderers.  

Alongside a colleague, she must fight against the clock to catch the killer, and save a life, but she must keep them both safe and alive whilst doing so. Which is easier said than done.

When a life endangering storm isolates the Institution further, Connie and her colleague have their work cut out.

The Institution is a fast paced thriller, with some uncomfortable subjects dealt with sensitively. I can't wait for the authors next.

The Institution is available now via Amazon online and all good book shops.

Thank You to the publishers who approved my request via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
